Nail Art: "Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel" Manicure  

Posted by: Stylishly yours in , , , , , , , , , ,

This Konadicure was inspired by Chanel's Spring 2010 Ready-To-Wear Collection featuring models walking down the catwalk with Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel (aka Chanel temporary skin art/tattoos – £49 for 4 sets, 55 designs) designed and hand-drawn by Peter Philips, Chanel’s Global Creative Director of Makeup.

Chanel Tattoo inspired Nail Art by Laquer Boudoir, Revlon - Lilac Pastilles, Konad M62

Lacquer Used:

Base Colour:Revlon031Lilac Pastelle3 coats
Stamp Plate:Konad M62KonadM62Pearls & Bow
Stamp Colour:Nina Ultra Pro709067Black1 coat
Topcoats:Barry M54Clear All-In-One1 coat
Rimmel 60 Seconds740Crystal Clear1 coat


  1. I used Revlon Lilac Pastelle as a base colour. The colour has more blue than in the photo, it's like a baby pink with touch of lilac. The colour is very flattering. I don't really like its application, it's difficult to get an even coat, so I advise to use thin coats with light pressure.
  2. After the base colour has dried completely, I used Nina Ultra Pro Black with the Konad M62 Pearls & Bow stamp on only the ring finger. The colour stamps okay, a bit grey than expected. Because of intricacy of this particular pattern, one has to work really fast or it doesn't pick up all the details. Then I placed a designer gold nail decal on the middle finger by using a little clear varnish.
  3. To finish off, I first use the Barry M Clear All-In-One as a Topcoat, then I put another coat of Rimmel 60 Seconds Crystal Clear. Just to warn you, I have tried using the Rimmel 60 Seconds Crystal Clear first, but it smudges the Konad designs.

this is a great interpretation of the tattoos =) I love the chanel decals, I need to get some for myself, too! =)

Thank you! I found these randomly at a nail supply store. You can search for the Chanel decals on ebay, but search for "CC" or "designer nail stickers". But I do have to warn you that you need to bend the decal before sticking on or the little arms on the "C" are very easy to break off.
