Chanel always dazzles us with its innovative nail shades and shimmery palettes of shadow and blush. And their Spring 2011 makeup collection is no exception!

It's inspired by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's belief that the light-reflecting effect of pearls enhance a woman's natural beauty by bringing a luminosity to her skin.

For Spring, Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, makes everything radiant with Les Perles de Chanel. The eye shadow palette and powder blush offer pearlized shades of black and white punctuated by illuminating pinks and corals that will leave skin glowing.

For the lips, there are shades of rose, pink and iridescent white in lipstick and gloss offerings. And, last but surely not least, the nail polishes in the collection are peach, white and black infused with pearl.

We're scheduling a post-holiday nail treatment at our nail salon for an uber-chic black and white mani-pedi in Black Pearl and Pearl Drop!

Les Perles De Chanel will be available at, Chanel boutiques and department stores January 2011.
