The Chanel Les Rouges Culte Collection le Vernis Automne 2014 is coming. We’re talking about three 1980's classic reds that'll be making a triumphant return just so you can get ’em. C’mon! Let’s look!
chanel les rouges cultes: le vernis
Statement red nails are always hot for the festive season, and a head-turning glamorous orange-red is part of the Chanel holiday 2014 collection. But this little trio is different. A nostalgic re-release of three fabulous red polish favourites, the Chanel Les Rouges Culte release features hot hues from 1980, 1981 and 1987. (Let's not do the math on how long ago they debuted.)
above: chanel rouge flamboyant 38 – 1980. Chanel says “this fiery red introduced cheerful energy into a new decade.” Really, what you’re looking at is a perfect poppy red. So perfect and so Chanel, right? Two coats.
above: chanel laque rouge 71 – 1981. The word on this one is that “this deep red shade reveals an incomparable elegance.” I didn’t find it that deep but I did find it elegant. Laque Rouge 71 makes my fingers look like money.
above: chanel rouge Nº19 – 1987. Apparently, “this luminous blue-red expresses playful femininity.” It’s raspberry but you can call it blue-red if you like. I call it a really swell shade of red that's all crazy kinds of perfect for fall.

I’m so incredibly glad about Chanel Les Rouges Culte. There are tonnes and tonnes of reds out there but in my estimation, Chanel does red polish (oh, my bad - le vernis) best. To be able to get hands on these unforgettable shades is pure magic for me. Oh, and two words, people: Limited Edition.
These hot Chanel Les Rouges Culte shades ($28 CAD) will be available starting November 3rd at all Chanel beauty counters and at Chanel.ca. S’nice to see Chanel bring back classic reds, ain’t it?
