Black Satin Who? Chanel Releases Two Sure-To-Sell-Out New Nail Lacquers

Leave it to Chanel to reinvent the dark colors of the cold months in a way that's totally breathtaking. With these two new limited-edition nail polishes, we might never look at blue or black the same way again.
What sets these shades apart from the rest? They're galactic. Sure, the galaxy-print clothing trend might have peaked last year, but we're still holding strong to makeup colors that swirl and shimmer like the cosmos. It's only fitting that we take our inspiration from the night sky, as we're about to start seeing a lot more of it (this is the beauty version of a glass half-full).
The blue shade is called Magic and looks like the sky at daybreak. But we're a little more partial to Cosmic, the black shade, which sparkles with blue and silver pearl. We continue to love this season's grown-up goth vibe — can we talk about how amazing Cosmic is going to look with dark lipstick? That's right, our holiday party outfit just got way more fabulous.
Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour Nuit Magique, $27 each, available at Chanel.
