And Now, the Best-Selling Chanel Nail Colours of All Time

Along with Chanel lipsticks, the Chanel nail polishes were my first taste of luxury makeup. For a few years in a row, I would very obviously hint at a Chanel makeup gift for Christmas each time I’d walk past the counter with my mum and older sister and then feel buzzed when I spotted a Chanel paper bag under the tree.

There is something extra special about Chanel nail colours too. All the classics are there like a perfect nude or iconic red, but you’ll find shades in the range that’ll surprise you like Arancio Vibrante a bright, zingy orangey red and Sea Sea Green which evokes a feel of spring joy. Like a lot of people, I almost strictly do gel polish on my fingernails now just because of how hardy it is, but I still opt for regular polish on my toes and Chanel offers the most luxe choice. Yes, the packaging is ridiculously chic but the colours are vast and often unique plus the formula itself is top tier. It glides on full of colour, not streaky or watery and I’ve found chipping is minimal. So, without further ado here are the best-selling Chanel nail polishes of all time.

Best-Selling Chanel Nail Colours

1. Pirate

A classic if there ever was one. This red hue is a real suits-all shade that works through seasons.

2. Rouge Noir

This has to be my favourite type of red hue. The deep burgundy is perfect for your first autumn mani/pedi.

3. Ballerina

Could this be the perfect sheer nude? Whether you want to keep things simple or you’re looking for a base for your nude nail art, this is an elegant choice.

4. Rouge Essentiel

A poppy red like Rouge Essentiel is the way to wear red in the summer. It looks incredible against tanned skin and keeps summer alive a little longer.

5. Organdi

This opaque nude has a greyish base, so if winter nudes were a thing, this would sit firmly in that category.

6. Particulière

I’m particularly drawn to Particulière thanks to the brown edge this nude hue has. It’s a perfect pick for deeper skin tones like mine.

7. New Dawn

Is it off-mauve? Is it off-nude? Whatever you’d call this shade, it’s the kind of gloomy chic that we are here for.

8. Verde Pastello

Hello, holiday mode. This shade is screaming to be paired with an Aperol asap.

9. Prune Dramatique

A glossy, stylish purple that’ll pair perfectly with chunky knits this autumn/winter.

10. Daydream

If you live for shades like Essie Ballet Slippers or OPI’s Bubble Bath this a pink for you. It strikes the balance of girly and the "clean girl" aesthetic perfectly.

Special Mention: Le Top Coat

Although not a colour this is one of the brand’s best sellers in the nail department. It gives the nail a high-shine glass-like finish and allows your mani/pedi to last longer, chip-free.

Chanel Makeup Favourites

Chanel Hydrating & Fortifying Oil

This nail oil is quickly becoming a best seller for Chanel Makeup and you can see why. The Camelia moisturises and nourishes the cuticle to prevent dryness and breakage on the nail plate.

Chanel Vitalumière Radiant, Moisture-Rich Fluid Foundation

A celebrity favourite for a reason. This foundation is light as air but gives good, buildable coverage that leaves skin more even-toned and radiant.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

Although this definitely needs to come in a few extra shades, I do love the deeper shade swept across the high points of my face if my complexion is looking holiday-deprived.

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss Moisturising Glossimer

A must-have for nude lipgloss lovers. The texture isn’t stick or gloopy but almost gel-like and the look is high-shine.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick

Another glow-giver, this stick works as a highlighter and bronzer or blusher depending on the shade you pick. I love N20 as a highlighter because as someone with matte skin I have to take down the shine and then add it back in in the right places.
