NOTD: Chanel Manicure #1

Today I got some decals in the mail from eBay and needed to do this manicure right away! This is the first of 2 Chanel manicures I did... I re-did this one because I am totally Chanel obsessed I found more Chanel-inspired pictures floating around on pinterest!

My inspiration came from: SuPa Nails-here and Emerald Sparkled here.

  • I alternated colors then used the opposite color to make french tips. The trick is to go slow when painting the tips.
  • Applying these decal stickers took some practice, they have to be bent a bit so the edges don't poke straight out. I used my dotting tool as a guide and just pressed the decal onto it to create a more rounded shape.
  • Also, I added about 3 coats of top coat to each decal just so the whole decal stayed put and this seemed to do the trick!
I used Chanel Black Satin- a black with finely milled glitter.

Stay tuned for the next Chanel inspired manicure!
