Everyone’s hyping Chanel’s camo nails it seems (which launch at Fashion Night Out next week) but I’m not ready to go the whole ten-fingered hog of khaki and beige. I prefer the idea of a handful of khaki or grey and the other hand a rich, bloody red – my favourite military combination – inspired by a page in Harper’s Bazaar.
Nails can be long or short and the beauty of this colour scheme is that it’s wonderfully versatile and will work with all neutral outfits including denim, black, grey, khaki, camel and, of course red.
This also chimes in with the happy news that Revlon is reviving its iconic red, Fire & Ice. Try this with Barry M’s grey nail paint, a good, flat grey with no sparkles.
Lee from Ohboystyle has alerted me to the tuckage of hair at the Chanel Couture. What do we give this on the tuck-o-meter? I’d give it a 4 out of 10, with points deducted for lack of fullness to the hair, fussy silhouettes in the clothing and not-high-enough necklines. Harsh?
