Nail of the Day - Chanel Blue Boy

Chanel Blue Boy

I'm wearing this for no other reason than I really like it! It's a subtle slate-blue cream, I think it's both edgy and understated at the same time and appropriate for most situations. A great blue for beginners, maybe!

Two coats with Seche Vite quick drying top coat, application is perfect - although you'd expect that from Chanel. There are probably similar colours around in cheaper brands - for example the Nubar Jeans trio which just blatantly ripped off all three of the Les Jeans de Chanel colours, but I think the colour, formula and finish make this worth the Chanel price tag. I'm also slightly irritated by those who copy original ideas (in all sorts of things, not just nail polish).

Off the topic of nails, I had a fabulous swim in Derwentwater last night and this colour looked just amazing under the water - I'll wear this colour again in the winter and remember this day :D

I bought Chanel Blue Boy from the Chanel Counter in my local House of Fraser. It's one of the Les Jeans de Chanel trio - these were supposed to be a very limited release in the UK a couple of years ago and only available in one or two stores outside of London. I remember making a special trip to Newcastle to buy Coco Blue, then to my annoyance they turned up everywhere a few months later. I wasn't so annoyed it stopped me buying this though! I'm not sure if these colours are still available now.


  1. This is such a nice wintery colour! And I'm jealous of your swim, it's too chilly here right now :)

  2. Wow! This looks amazing on you! I want a bottle of it now!

  3. oh that is such a gorgeous shade!!
