This is spring's most coveted nail polish, the mushroom colored Chanel 505 Particuliére. It was used in the Chanel S/S 2010 runway show, and also in Chanel ads featuring British singer Lily Allen. It's been on sale in the US since before Christmas, but maybe it's sold out already? At least it sells on Ebay for a lot more than retail price.
Thanks to my friend Micelle in the US, my very own specimen is on it's way to me in the mail now. I'm so looking forward to trying this out. (Thanks heaps, M.) A lot of fashion and beauty sites have already written page up and page down about this particular color, which is one of three in Chanel's spring palette. Here are a few:
According to Marie Claire, it goes on sale in Selfridges on January 29th, but there's already a wait list. I don't know if it will be in Esthetique stores in Norway on the same date, but maybe worth checking out for those who want it. (Photo by Chanel).
