Manicure Monday- Chanel Manicure!

Hello lovelies!
Last week I was lucky enough to get a manicure at the Chanel Boutique in Covent Garden, and it was so lovely.
I went in with a diy manicure (I attempted to do the matte black with shiney tips manicure. I will post how I did so once I have practices a few more times- watch out for future Manicure Monday!) and the nail technician flat out refused to just do a black colour. I tend to play safe in the nail department, mostly using the shades from the '5 Nail Shades Everyone Should Own' post I did recently. So I let her convince me to do something slightly different.
Here is the finished mani
I know, I know. It's still neutral and black, but it is interesting and different for me!
The base colour is Frenzy and the black detailing was achieved with a nail art pen. I love that it was eye-catching but also went with everything I wore. Frenzy is the perfect nude for me, as it is less yellow/peach than Chanel beige, but not too greige. 
I was gifted with Chanel base and top coats, which I can't wait to try out!
I'm also looking at buying the Topshop nail art brush kit to be a bit more creative with my Manicure Monday's! Has anyone used them?
I am really enjoying focusing more on beauty blogging, does anyone have any advice as I am new to this?!


  1. It's hard getting something different but this looks just lovely! And when you're getting it done nicely it makes sense to get something a bit special!

  2. Yes, I loved them in the end!

    Me and the lovely lady I'm beauty box swapping with just completed it this week- how fun was it!?
