Mint green nail polishes

What to Do If You Can't Get Your Hands on Chanel Jade

Which just so you know, you won’t. Sorry to be a party pooper but it’s been and gone in a flash. See it’s all very well people declaring this and that an "it" shade – yes Rachel Zoe, I'm looking at you – but do they give a second thought about how we’re actually going to get our hands on it? No siree.

Luckily Bella is on the case. If you’ve been hiding under a rock these past few weeks or just aren’t fussed about latest trends in the world of nail polishes, you might not be aware that Chanel Jade is the colour of the season.

Crazy cats want it so much that bidding wars have even erupted on ebay – it’s a nail varnish people, meaning it’ll probably smash in the post – with reserve prices being set at as much as $103. If you’re struggling to see how a polish could possibly be worth that much, try these shades for size . . .

Bloom Nail Polish in Kitty ($19.95), Orly Mint Mojito ($7.95), OPI Go On Green ($19.95), Sportsgirl Nail It! in Envy ($7.95), Orly Limelite ($7.95), Kit Nail Polish in High Roller ($15.95).

Stockists: OPI (1800 358 999), Orly (1300 769 354).
