I remember in junior high/middle school/whatever it's called nowadays when I would paint my toenails dark blue because I thought it looked pretty and I would get yelled at by my mom for looking like I had diseased toes. (She could never tell me exactly what disease it was that caused your toenails to look sparkly dark blue.)
For the past however many years, I've been wishing that this would become an acceptable nail color for adults, and after the last big fashion comeback of black nails, I knew it was only a matter of time before beautiful blue had it's time in the spotlight.
And in Spring 2008, that day will finally come.
You know a color is IN when Chanel makes it part of their line. Chanel Blue Satin Nail Polish. Mm-hmm.
Other limited editions in 2008 include white satin (also a favorite of mine back in the day), rose satin (pink), and azur (light sparkling blue). These limited editions are currently available on Chanel.com for $19.
Sadly (and kind of disgustingly), I can only find the Blue Satin being sold on Ebay for obscene amounts of money. Aka $27.99. If you've got money to blow and you love the navy blue that is sure to be the it color of this Spring, get it here.
