Along with Chanel lipsticks, the Chanel nail polishes were my first taste of luxury makeup. For a few years in a row I would very obviously hint at a Chanel makeup gift for Christmas each time I’d walk past the counter with my mum and older sister and then feel buzzed when I spotted a Chanel paper bag under the tree.
There is something extra special about Chanel nail colours too. All the classics are there like a perfect nude or iconic red, but you’ll find shades in the range that’ll surprise you like Arancio Vibrante a bright, zingy orange-y red and Sea Sea Green which evokes a feel of spring joy. Like a lot of people, I almost strictly do gel polish on my fingernails now just because of how hardy it is, but I still opt for regular polish on my toes and Chanel offers the most luxe choice. Yes, the packaging is ridiculously chic but the colours are vast and often unique plus the formula itself is top tier. It glides on full of colour, not streaky or watery and I’ve found chipping is minimal. So, without further ado here are the bestselling Chanel nail polishes of all time.
