We weren't kidding when we said Chanel starts every new trend, and by new, we meant nail as well! By now, some of us would either own or tried a (or a few!!) bottle(s) of Chanel nail colour in 'Particuliere -505' and 'Nouvelle Vague - 527'. However, for the majority, it will prove a task to get hold of no.527 given it was a limited edition and was sold out even before it was displayed on the counter after being seen on Lily Allen. Today, either for the fashionista in you or for the more budget conscious readers,our team at Shopaholicdiaries would like to introduce you to these two Chanel colours and also bring to you the best in the market, that would give you the similar hot nail colours for summer, without breaking your bank.....and here we go....

This is number 505, and was sold out a couple of times across London when it first came out. Due to it's popularity and how practical the colour is, it has since joined the permanent collection and is now available at any Chanel cosmetic counter or boutiques. For anyone who have not tried this colour before, go try it, it goes with anything and you can wear it formal or informal, it's gorgeous!

This is no.527, the one that got sold out, before it was even placed out on the counter! Lily Allen wore this to one of the Chanel fashion runway show and immediately after, everyone went crazy for this colour. We say, it is a great summer colour!

Just a little more for eye feasting....as with no.527, no.537 is a limited edition too.

Now, for the benefit of our readers who haven't had a chance to secure any of the Chanel nail varnish above, we present to you, one of our top two favourite brand.....the TOPSHOP nail varnish! Each bottle of this little gem cost less than 1/3 of the Chanel version but comes with really smooth consistency for application. Worth the try if you ask us! Visit www.topshop.com to view the entire collection.

Now presenting our favourite is the nail varnish from BUTTER LONDON! This is the chosen nail varnish brand of the 2010 London Fashion week! Having tried one, we knew why! It's thick but smooth and like the Chanel nail varnish, one coat of it already gives you a gorgeous rich colour! In addition, as proclaimed on it's website, all of the nail varnishes from Butter London are non toxic and does not contain any nasty ingredients. So for people who have the habit of biting nails (you should stop that by the way :-P), eating any of these wouldn't cause any harm to your body.
