You always remember your first...Chanel nail polish, that is. The famous formula, with its super-slick finish and consistently innovative shades, has an avid fan following — so avid, in fact, that the company has launched Couleurs Culte de Chanel (or Chanel Color Cult, for you non-francophiles), a collection of five classically covetable shades from the brand's archives.
