Okay. . . I am a sucker for trends at times and this one I could not resist. I received an email from Who What Wear and they were talking about the taupe nail trend. The polished featured was of course by the house of Chanel and I love Chanel!! I was intrigued because I was already on a hunt for a neutral nail color to wear for work anyway. In there article they talked about how:
“Kate Beckinsale and Gwenyth Paltrow each proved that this lacquer does indeed add a luxe finish to red-carpet style when they accented their fancy frocks with toasty nails for a sophisticated evening look. Additionally, Dree Hemingway attested to the go-anywhere-ness of this shroomy shade when she took her nails straight off the runway (she walked at Chanel) and paired them with her glamorous Fendi leather-and-cropped-fur ensemble. Finally, songstress Lily Allen not only rocked the stage as performer at Chanel’s spring show, but also ushered in this brand new hue with a white shirt and nubby knits, affirming this beloved polish is equally as elegant with daytime wear.”
The nail polished mention for this trend was Chanel’s Le Vernis Nail Colour 505 Particuliere for $23. Indeed and beauty color, but I did not want to spend $23 on a nail polish at this time, so I decided to check out Sephora to see if they have something similar and they did! The color that I found was a Sephora by OPI nail polish called “Under My Trench Coat“. This color is very pretty with it a hidden shimmer in the polish and when applied in 2 coats, I love it!! I have been wearing this color all weekend and people have been giving me compliments on it too! So, if you are looking for an alternative definitely check this color out!
