“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel

Coco Crazy

Over at Phoebe Does i spotted she had some amazing nail art going on involving the Chanel 'CC' logo. Now on first reflection i know these are very tacky and a little dare i say - My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding-ish but i do love my Coco Chanel and i just had to try it out for myself.

Nails Inc polish from the Glamour Collection in Tower Bridge.
Oh yes! Full on chav-tastic! They actually don't look that bad in the above photo but after wearing them to work i think less is more definitely applies here, so i decided to redo the manicure with just one accent nail.

Now doesn't that look better?

Ok, ok  i'm not sure it's for everyone and the opinion at work was 50/50 but forget about The Hills' Heidi Montag and take a look at these photos:

As seen on Vogue.co.uk no less - even i think this is too much!

 Are you convinced?


  1. I think they look nice although I'd probably just stick to the one nail xx

  2. im so mixed about this!
    love the look on black matte nails and i think its such a good idea but hate how to the wrong person could look so tacky!
    Think ill need to brave black matte with one gold logo and take the risk of looking like a TOWIE reject :)

  3. AMAZING! how did you do them?

  4. @Rebecca Lucy I think i did go a bit overboard the first time :O

    @alistyles I agree - i have to hold back on the gold accessories to avoid looking too ali g!

    @Suzi You just apply them after your base colour with a bit of topcoat underneath and on top, well several coats on top so they stay put - it's a bit fiddely though!
