Chanel's Spring Summer 2012

Karl Lagerfeld’s stunning spring summer 2012 collection for Chanel was themed around an underwater sea world with gossamer-light frocks in a powdery palette of cream, blush, peach sherbet and white parading the runways, with every look from dresses to boxy jackets studded with pearl buttons, as were the ear-lobes and spines of the models gliding down the catwalk.

Creative Director of Chanel make-up Peter Philips said on his inspiration for the show; "The focus was on luminosity, purity and a touch of humour. I did pale, glowy skin with a pink/coral blush, a wet shiny eyelid finished with black eyeliner, slightly glossy lips and randomly placed pearl piercings. Some girls had a pearl spine."

Unveiling the colour for their highly anticipated spring summer 2012 nail lacquer, Peter says: "I created a white, pearl nail polish exclusively for the show and for the more "colourful" passages I used three nail polish shades called April, May and June. All three shades come out next spring."

And sharing his top beauty tips for the season ahead, Peter advises: "This is a very accessible, wearable look that is easy to apply and flattering for most women. The balance between shine and matte, topped with a hint of colour, is a perfect way to float into spring 2012."

A while ago, I discovered some gorgeous nail colours from My Face Cosmetics and they have launched some more colours including the lil’bling Diamonds and Pearls shade - which if you can’t wait until next Spring for Chanel’s – I think would be perfect for creating this look!
