NOTD - Chanel Les Khakis - Khaki Vert


Just a quick little nail of the day post today.  It's Khaki Vert from the Chanel Les Khakis collection, and yes, I did make a special trip to Selfridges to pick it up!


It's pretty easy to apply, dries relatively quickly and has lasted for a couple of days so far without chipping.  I applied two coats and a top coat and got a great, opaque finish.


Excuse the state of my cuticles!

It's not normally a shade I'd wear to work, but I've been wearing it this week.  It's quite muted, so I think I can get away with it.  I was a bit worried as I wore it to a meeting today and I wasn't sure it would be appropriate.  I needn't have worried - the woman I was meeting had bright green nail polish, so my nails looked rather drab in comparison!

What do you think?  I rather like it, but I think this will be a 'marmite' colour - you'll either love it or you'll hate it!

Thanks for reading!  xx

I will be honest, I am not a fan of this shade but it certainly looks better on than in the bottle.

Definitely fine for work and another shade that I think is great for the young professional woman is Posh Polish by Eyeko.

I did not want to spend all the money on the new Chanel nail varnish so I searched for a military green nail varnish :) and found one. Its from eyeko :) Ordered couple of days ago. I saw swatches and it is gorgeous :) Def a must have colour this season :D

I am not really sure about this, to be honest! We cannot deny it is original but it is not a shade I would go for!
