How To: Chanel Couture Nails!

Came across these fab nails what were styled for the Chanel Fall '12 fashion show! I think I wanna try this nail style, maybe with a gold under layer instead? Hmm we'll see... Follow the steps below to get the "Chanel Haute Couture Nails"! 1.)Prep the nails by painting the nails with a thin layer of a nourishing base coat. Peter Philips used Chanel’s Base Protectrice on the models’ for the show. This base will extend the longevity of your nail art to follow. 2.)Paint the nails with generous coat of the silver polish, this will act as the base of the manicure. Stay close to the cuticles, but remember to not paint over them. Don’t double coat this, as it’ll get too thick. Chanel Le Vernis ‘Silver’ was used for the show, however you can pick a more metallic shade, if suited. Wait for the silver polish to completely dry, before moving on.
3.)Paint a vertical line straight down the center of the nail, leaving a gap on both sides and around the cuticle. Apply two-three coats of this, as you want the pink polish to appear as a solid colour in the middle of each nail. Philips used Chanel’s Le Vernis ‘May’ for the show. 4.)Wait for the nails to dry completely (very important), and finish off with a layer of topcoat. Of course the nail artist used the Chanel nail products but i'm definitely not gonna purchase that expensive ass polish LOL... have fun polishing guys!
