Consider this fair warning: at yesterday’s Resort 2011 show in Saint-Tropez, designer Karl Lagerfeld and global creative director Peter Philips sent models down the runway with a splash of eggshell-blue nail polish on their fingertips. The pale, powdery blue contrasted nicely against the sunkissed skin of the models and perfectly complemented the dusty pinks and blues seen in the collection.
While details on the new blue shade are scarce, you can rest assured it is destined to be a hit. When Chanel revealed Chanel Jade, a minty green nail color, during their Fall 2009 show, the polish became an instant hit and sold out before it reached the beauty counter. The follow-up, Chanel Particulière (a violet-grey), garnered a similar reaction. Prepare yourselves for a fight if Chanel’s baby blue ever hits the shelves!
