How to – Chanel inspired nails

Chanel inspired easy nail art

You may already know that I love all things Chanel, so this time I created nail art inspired by my favorite fashion house. Simple in classic black and white with a signature logo, this type of manicure is perfect for a night out or any other dress up occasion. Imagine a white shift dress, black opaque stockings, a long string of pearls and a glass of champagne in your hand… mmm….

Of course, as with all of my other  DIY nail art, this Chanel inspired manicure is really easy to recreateEnjoy!


How to DIY balck and white nail art

1. Apply two coat of opaque black nail polish on each nail except for your ring finger. Then two coats of white nail polish on your ring finger. I used Revlon 050 White on White and Blackest Black nail polishes.

2. Draw a C shape with a black nail polish with a thin brush over the white nail polish on your ring finger.

3. Draw the second part of the logo – a mirrored C shape over the C shape you just drew. Let it dry and apply the topcoat for extra shine.

Tip: as drawing the Chanel logo is the most difficult part of this nail art, you may wish to practice it on paper before starting on your nail. Once, you get it right on the paper, you’re ready for the nail :)

Happy Fabulous day lovelies!!!
