Chanel and Holt Renfrew are celebrating nails. This month you can get a complimentary shape and polish with one of Chanel’s expert manicurists at the Chanel Shade Parade nail bar.

Come experience the world of Chanel beauty at Holt Renfrew! We are proud to present Chanel’s Shade Parade, a short film featuring a chorus line of fingers decked out in the brand’s luxe lacquers. The cabaret-inspired video showcases some of the French fashion house’s most-coveted nail polish shades with an adorably chic twist. With all of the well-manicured hands and snazzy choreography you can’t help but want to join the shade parade!

Chanel invited me to experience the Shade Parade a few weeks ago. I literally squealed when the email from Chanel Canada landed in my inbox. Finally the day was here, my first Chanel event. My manicurist was named Ilona. Maybe I don’t get out much but she was the most elegant and well spoken woman I’ve ever met. I felt a bit like a neanderthal talking with Ilona but she mesmerized me while relaying Chanel nail polish history and influences of the spring collection. The colours are called April, May and June.

I decided to ignore my dark nail polish tendencies when for the raspberry looking April. Ilona expertly shaped, buffed and massaged my hands. The polish application was flawless and I didn’t mess them up before getting to the office. It was a good morning and to top it off was a little swag bag from Chanel with 3 new additions to the Anita Nail Polish Family.

Thank you Chanel and Holt Renfrew.
