Chanel's Black Satin Returns

Chanel's Black Satin Returns

Chanel Black Satin nail polish is undeniably the hottest nail color this fall. Since its initial release in late July, it's been sold out almost everywhere, prompting waiting lists at department stores and high bids on eBay. Now, according to an article in the New York Times, the must-have nail polish is back!

Starting today, department stores nationwide will be restocked with new bottles of Black Satin, thanks to a recent ramp-up in production on the part of Chanel. According to the NYT,

"The company says interest in Black Satin grew after Jessica Alba and other young celebrities were spotted wearing it this summer. Soon, Chanel executives said, it was selling a thousand bottles a week."

I think the whole thing is a bit silly. It is, after all, just black nail polish; in middle school, we bought the same color made by cheap-o drugstore brand Wet N Wild. But if you simply must have some, it retails for $18, or you can buy it on eBay here; the current bid on this particular auction is $31.

Just my opinion, but I have two blacks by OPI, the wet n wild version and the Chanel. The Chanel stayed on without chipping for 7 days. OPI lasted a day and a half. There's a reason that Chanel costs so much, it really stays on. And it is so shiny.

Mani update... So, I was too lazy and frankly too busy to search stores for the Chanel today... when I went to my salon, they had a very pretty OPI shade called Black Tie Optional. But I actually when with OPI Romeo & Joliet, which is almost a satiny chocolate color with deep wine undertones, and is much darker than it looks on the OPI website. Yay for dark, fall nails!

meh, i'll try the wet n wild kind, no one will know. besides, why spend so much money on NAIL POLISH when it's going to be a quick fad?

Maybe it's something my mom has traumatized me with (I was never allowed to wear deep colored nail polish as a child), but I just don't think black nail polish is attractive...

I think black nails only look good on a select few. Everyone else looks like they are trying too hard, JMO.

lol, dark black, light black??? black is black, and ino it's only appropriate for halloween anyway, unless you're into the goth thing...

I saw some girl in another forum say she paints her nails with a dark brown she has, then colors sharpie over it and clear nail polish... bizzare.

Yeah, I was planning on calling around. Probably won't even bother... maybe go for one-stop shopping at Ulta and just grab a different brand.

I could squiggle permanent black marker on my nails and call it Chanel. Geez.

Hey Atlanta! Before you make your way to Chanel, I'd call first. I know when I was looking for this shade for my lil' sis there are actually tons of waiting list out there, at most department stores and Chanel boutiques. If you do snag a bottle, congrats, it's definitely a tough thing to do. I heart essie too!

So funny! I was just reviewing the older posts on black and vampy nail polish colors today, considering going dark at my mani this afternoon! Maybe I'll have to stop and pick up some Chanel on the way... though I think I favor the Essie one!
