Chanel Jade Le Vernis

Chanel Jade Nail Collection

Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, created the Jade Nail Collection with two limited edition nail enamels in sure-to-be-coveted colors “Jade” and “Jade Rose” for the Ready-to-Wear Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 runway show. These mineral-inspired shades transform the nails into genuine gems and recall the jade jewelry and the pink knit and pistachio tweed of the fashion collection.

“For the nails, Karl wanted a green shade to evoke the jade notes of the collection. I worked with our laboratories to offer him a monochromatic palette of 10 green shades. We chose the color that most resembled the green tweed skirt suit from the collection,” explains Peter Philips.

Availability:  The CHANEL Jade Nail Collection debuts on September 10th at the CHANEL Soho Boutique in New York City in celebration of Vogue’s Fashion Night Out. Starting the 11th of September, The Jade Nail Collection will be sold for limited time exclusively at, CHANEL Makeup Studios and CHANEL boutiques for $25.00.

  1. I’ve already seen it, the jade color is amazing. I can say it’s the most beautiful green shade of nail polish I’ve seen in the last years

    I asked the ladies at The Bay counter in Vancouver if I could pre-order the Jade colour, but they said it is not available for pre-order in Canada or they might not even get it in stock. Boo! I am dying to get my hands on the green. All lacquered up blog as a swatch of it and it is gorgeous!

    I’ll have to pass – the colors look way on the cool side for my skintone. I also over did it with the MAC/OPI fall colors.

  6. Christy

    Aww, I want! I may have to go on an Ebay hunt for this.

  7. Lindsey

    Gorgeous! But I can’t see spending $25 on a nail polish, so I’ll try to find me some dupes

    Must… have… Jade… Will these be coming out in Australia?

      Hi Tizzy – I’d just gotten off the phone from the Chanel Makeup Studio at Myer Sydney and they’ve got it already (it was released on the 6th September) but they’ve sold out. I suggest you give them a call and get your name on the waiting list! It retails for AUD39.

    I already have the green one. It’s really beautiful. The pink however didn’t really catch my eye. But the jade one is definitely a keeper :p

  11. OMG! Very nice! And a similar version of Peppermint Patti.

  12. Jenna

    Where can I get this in Canada????:)

  13. Fairy

    Just ordered the Jade color online. Can’t wait to wear it!! Has anyone purchased the pink one? It didn’t really catch my eye but if anyone has it and recommends it I may give it a try.
