CHANEL · Neon Wave Collection

 

Inspired by vivid pop culture, CHANEL has just released Neon Wave, a capsule collection comprised of four muted eyeshadows in the brand’s new formula, that act as the perfect balance for the four retina-searing nail lacquers. Once again, CHANEL has managed to surprise me (not easy to do, given the scope of products I see) and what’s more, is showing incredible foresightedness with this bold move. Oh, and let’s just say that this is the first time I’ve ever actually wanted to wear neon along my nails.
