Since Lily Allen painted her nails in Chanel's Particuliere nail polish for her appearance at Chanel's S/S 2010 show, fashion and beauty fans have been lusting after the hard-to-find colour. Somewhere between grey, taupe and mauve the greige shade has become THE must-have hue for girls in the know.
With Selfridges reporting that the nail colour is leaving the shop almost as quickly as they can take stock of it, it's become the Jade of the S/S season. So, we've come up with a couple of fab alternatives that will prove a little easier to find.
Boot's No 7 are launching Speed Dry Nail Colour in Beanie on 24 March but if you can't wait till then, go for Essie's Jazz, a cool minky shade for on-trend nails.
No 7 Speed Dry Nail Colour in Beanie, £7.25
Essie nail polish in Jazz, £8.95 available at nailsbymail.co.uk
