Remember Chanel’s Vamp – circa 1994? Meet the reincarnated polish (if you can find it) - Chanel’s Black Satin.

Posted Image

The black polish was released in July and has been more scarce than a Chloé Paddington bag. Black nails are no longer reserved for the doomy goth gals, this new black is shinier and more complex with undertones of purple, silver or red. It’s super glam and even corporate babes are wearing it to the office. How hot is it?
…Sarah Michelle Gellar swiped someone else’s bottle during NY fashion week. Nice going Buffy!
…The average price on eBay is triple the retail price.
…Hundreds of names on waiting lists, and now salivating as Beauty Addict busts out that there is finally a new shipment hitting stores this week.
Posted Image Can’t wait? The New York Times shares some black nail polish alternatives:
- OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
- OPI Black Onyx
- Shu Uemura ME083 (a gun-metal black)- Mac Nocturnelle (pure creamy black)
- Essie Wicked
Bonus! The end of summer always means the end of my healthy long nails. Thank goodness the shade de semaine actually looks best on shorter, squared nails. And here’s a tip from Glamour: Devise an anti-chip strategy. Use ridge filler as a base to stop bleeding; keep polish off your cuticles and refresh your topcoat every third day.
