This mani/pedi was from the weekend – right after Thanksgiving when I was dreaming of warm sandy beaches. Living in Southern California, I shouldn’t complain, but I spent part of the extended weekend watching Chanel’s Saint-Tropez Cruise 2010/2011 Fashion Show (yes, a few months late) and couldn’t help but feel envious of the beautiful warm-looking weather. I immediately was inspired to make myself feel resort-like the only way I could by doing a Chanel cruise-inspired mani/pedi.
The inspiration from the fashion show, nude pink nails on the hands and blue on the toes. I know most breakdowns list Jade Rose on the fingers, but I decided to go with Inattendu instead for the hands. I stuck with the new Riva on the toes to mimic the models.
Mani/pedi both have 3 coats each:
