For nail aficionados, nothing is more important than when Chanel launches a new nail colour. Waiting lists are longer than those for the latest “it” bag, counter sales are more frantic than on Boxing Day and stock sells out faster than tickets to the latest reunion tour. Need we remind you about when Chanel ignited the mint green nail trend with the launch of Jade back in 2009? Or what about the more recent (and still always sold out) iridescent, Peridot?
Despite the craze for Chanel’s latest colours, there is something to be said for iconic shades of red. Like the little black dress, the red nail is a classic that will never go out of style. This week, Holt Renfrew invites you to its Bloor Street location to rediscover Chanel’s range of reds with a complimentary shape and polish. There’s never been a better time to treat yourself to a bit of luxe pampering!
Chanel Shade Parade, Holt Renfrew, Feb. 24-March 4. By appointment only.
