British makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, who helps guide my brushes from the palette to my face with her reassuring voice and smile in the Chanel Makeup Confidential videos, recently unveiled the French fashion house's Spring 2012 nail colors on her website. The candy-colored trio of shades include April (a rich garnet), May (a rose pink) and June (a creamy pastel apricot). But it's the latter polish that caught my attention, as it reminded me of the orange sherbet my grandmother bought for hazy, summer days in South Carolina.
"I was immediately drawn to June (I'm wearing it in the pic) as its one of those shades that flatters many skin-tones," wrote Eldridge. "I'm all about June's future bloom."
I suggest you run -- don't walk -- to beauty counters when these lacquers hit counters in January.
