Beauty, Nails, ObsessionsChanel Haute Chocolat

Chanel Haute ChocolatEvery year, I wait with bated breath to see what new holiday makeup collections will bring. Chanel is undoubtedly a brand that sets trends and defines classics each season, so I was especially excited to try one of their new nail lacquers for the season – Haute Chocolat. It is a rich brown shade of nail polish with very fine, shimmery gold flecks, and I love it!

The color itself was actually designed by Amy Gonzo, who won Seventeen Magazine and Chanel’s Colour of the Year contest. It was inspired of course by hot chocolate, and it’s absolutely delicious looking. The color is actually darker and richer than it appears in the bottle. The chocolate shade is really pretty and the gold shimmer adds an extra kick, without being overwhelmingly sparkly. I was a bit apprehensive of wearing chocolate polish because my skin has yellow undertones, but the color was rich and dark enough to make for a pretty contrast. I love how it looks perfect for the cooler seasons because it’s so rich and warm.

Haute Chocolat will only be available from October through December, so keep checking chanel.com and the Chanel counter at your favorite department store like Nordstrom to snag your own!icon

    Ladies, you’ll looove this color! It’s really great for fall and holidays. I wanted to take a picture of my nails, but nothing came out very well and plus I did a shoddy job with the polish. It still looks pretty, though :)
