The Chanel Les Khakis tragedy has ended – and now I’ve ended up with two sets. Thank you, Tatin, Alvin and Karen! They’re still not here, both sets are still in the US, but I can rest easy now because I know I’m going to have them. Woohoo!
Khaki Vert, Khaki Brun, Khaki Rose – you girls are mine.
And I can wait for my Khakis to arrive patiently because the super sweet Smile arrived from Hong Kong and gave me a big Chanel fix. She brought home my bottles of Chanel Steel and Strong.
And that’s not all – she even gave me goodies that I will write about in another post. Smile rocks so much.
But first, Chanel Steel and Strong.
Arrghh, look how pretty.
I know these haven’t gotten as much attention as the Khakis which is a shame because I love them.
These colors have gotten a lot of flak for not being terribly unique but you know what, none of that matters, because I love them.
Say hello to Chanel Steel.
Check out that crazy silver shimmer.
I just wish the famous Chanel micro-shimmer showed a little more on the nail.
This is without flash.
This is with flash.
Early announcements described this a grayish blue glitter but clearly this is not a grayish blue glitter.
Chanel Steel is a black gray polish with silver gray micro-shimmer.
I love that Chanel Steel looks kick-ass, that it’s not one of Chanel’s elegant colors, that it’s badass.
I’m wearing this as my manicure now. Yeah, because I like being a badass too.
And now, Chanel Strong.
In the bottle it sometimes looks like a shimmery purple and sometimes a shimmer brownish burgundy.
On the nails, it looks almost black.
Almost but not quite.
With flash, it looks like the blackberry micro-shimmer that it is.
I love it too.
I can’t decide which one I love more.
Steel or Strong?
Then again, I don’t really have to choose.
So both! I love them both!
Thank you, Chanel. Thank you, Peter Philips. Thank you, Smile.
You know how to make a sick girl happy.
