Beauty junkies, take note: Chanel’s newest limited edition nail color, Riva, is due to hit stores on December 1. The pretty eggshell blue color first made its debut at Chanel’s resort show—on the fingernails of Abbey Lee Kershaw and Magdalena Frackowiak, no less—which took place in Saint-Tropez, France, back in May. Naturally, the nail color is already causing a major sensation in the beauty world, and with good reason: it’s the perfect shade of blue for your next exotic vacation.
Of course, such a sought-after product won’t be easy to track down. In fact, rumors abound that Riva is already sold out? Why such passion for the color? Chanel is known for its limited edition nail lacquers. In fact, since 1994, Chanel has been consistently turned out must-have nail colors, season after season. No doubt you remember last year’s Chanel Jade? The minty green color was an instant hit and, at one point, sold for upwards of $100 on eBay. Jade’s follow-up colors— Particulière and Nouvelle Vague—were major hits as well. In other words, consider yourself warned: you may be in for a struggle if Chanel Riva strikes your fancy!
Chanel Riva will arrive at Chanel boutiques and beauty counters, as well as online at Chanel.com, on December 1. It retails for $39.
