Miss Crew and Shiny Style are both very excited about the new Chanel's new nail colors designed to celebrate the opening of its second Lose Angeles store. The polishes are priced at $25 each and carry iconic City of Angeles names like Melrose (hot pink), Rodeo Drive (pastel purple), LA Sunrise (neon yellow), and LA Sunset (deep red). While the product will initially be available only in-store, Chanel.com will stock the polishes starting in June.
The store certainly sounds lovely. Located on North Robertson Boulevard, the 5,395-square-foot Peter Marino designed space will carry the full range of Chanel ready-to-wear, fine jewelry, shoes, and fragrance and beauty. Though the collection will be rotated more frequently to reflect Californian's love of planned obsolescence. The store includes a 1,000-square-foot courtyard and 625-square-foot terrace. With all the emphasis on grander and grander spaces, we wonder how long it will take to get a manicure/pedicure space in a luxury goods boutique. Just think of the possibilities for $500 pedicures.
We would LOVE if Chanel offered acrylic nails with interlocking Chanel "C"s. It something we are sure the MISS Crew girls would love and would look particularly dope over the hipster pop yellow LA Sunrise. Though MISS Crew is coveting Rodeo Drive so we think it might be a toss up. Karl might find it quaint for about twenty minutes. A little bit of camp never seems to deter the Chanel folks as no one does manages to combine classic with kitsch quite as well as they do.
