  • Get in line fast, Chanel's mushroom nail polish is the hottest shade for spring

    Move fast beauty fans – the must-have nail shade for spring launches in nine days, and the waiting list is already up and running.

    Chanel’s Particulière nail polish – a soft mushroom hue – is the only colour you need on your talons this season, first spotted on the catwalk at the Chanel spring/summer ’10 show, worn by both the models and Lily Allen, who provided some surprise on-catwalk entertainment.

    Last season, hundreds of make-up junkies joined the list to snap up Chanel’s Jade polish, which at one point was selling on eBay for minimum bids of £100.

    David Walker-Smith, Selfridges’ beauty director commented: ‘Chanel’s Particulière nail varnish warrants the frenzy and is definitely on every beauty queen’s lust list.
