The Essential Chanel Nail Colors Every Girl Needs

There's not a lot of brands that we can say this for, but we've never met a Chanel nail polish we didn't like. They have a talent for launching crazy-cool color trends, but in a way that still feels loyal to the storied fashion house's refined history. What starlet hasn't been seen rocking Vamp on the red carpet? And who could forget the great Black Satin craze of 2006?
While many of the stand-out shades from the brand are limited-edition hues, which are off the shelves for good as soon as they sell out (farewell Peridot — we miss you already!), the permanent shade line-up offers up some truly stellar lacquer options to dress up your digits in style. Sure, there might be few among us who can afford to stock their closets with Chanel, but you can add a couple of these posh polishes to your stash and create the nail wardrobe of your dreams. Read on for our list of the essential Le Vernis lacquers every girl needs to own.
