Denim-Colored Nail Polish: Genius or Hideous?

Too broke to invest in a new pair of jeans for fall? How about nail polish that looks like denim?

Chanel's new Les Jeans De Chanel nail collection will debut on September 8 at Fashion’s Night Out events across the country and on chanel.com for a limited time until the end of the month, Yahoo! Shine reports.

The three nail laquers are inspired by -- you guessed it -- denim. Coco Blue is a sky blue shade; Blue Boy is ink-colored; and Blue Rebel looks like dark jeans.

We know, we know -- the trend is super-hip and all the coolest girls will be wearing it. But the darker the nail color, the uglier it looks when it starts to chip, if you want our two cents.

Plus, looking like you dipped your nails in blue ink will cost you -- the Chanel colors will go for $25 each.

But back to Fashion's Night Out -- why all the excitement? Fashion's Night Out is an after-hours shopping party around the world. Proceeds will go to the New York City AIDS Fund in the Community Trust. Not a bad excuse to shop!

    That makes it genius on Chanel's part: Take plain blue, market it as "Denim-colored" to make it seem special, then charge $25 bucks for something you can easily find for $3? Pretty smart way to trick morons out of money.

    I know it will be all the rage with the younger set who also wear black and florecent green too but I think those odd colors are ugly.

    As topics go, this one has me nailed ! When ever I go to get my mani/pedi I am stunned
    at the colors they choose. For me, the darker the color the stubbier your hands and nails
    look and, not to mention, how very "high maintenance" a dark color is. (and what is the draw for denim toes anyway?). I vary, and sometimes go red, but most times I use neutral
    colors(this is the ONLY part of me that is neutral).
    But, enough of my ideas, I would love to hear from you men out there as to your ideas
    on this issue. This is your opportunity to let us know if you like having dinner with denim hands!

    Make up does make some people look better, but there are others who are beyond hideous & need a miracle to make even decent. At least this nail polish will draw attention away from their face to something that is presentable.

    Well, I wouldn't call it "genius," but I do like the color, yet the price is ridiculous. I know about two stores that sell jeans within a reasonable budget, way less than this polish.

    Nice colors, but I thought blue nail polish already existed? I don't paint my nails, but if I wanted blue nails I believe I'd just go to my local store and buy a cheap-o $1 blue nail polish instead of buying a name. Which is exactly what you're buying considering you can make these colors at home by mixing.

    Blue, green and yellow nail polish don't suit me, but I might wear these denim shades with jeans. They are very nice.

    Never been a fan of blue polish myself, it looks kind of bruised. Plus, if you coordinate your nails to your pants and then you put your hand on your leg, it'll look weird.

    Any color looks good. The only problem with this brand is the price. $25 is a bit much for nail polish.

    I wouldn't really go so far as to say either... What makes it any different than normal blue polishes? Kinda of cool is they have an effect to them once they are dry, but other than tha, its just an expensive bottle of blue polish.

    The colors would look better if you have a tan and keep your fingernails welll groomed and NO chipped nails.

    There is nothing new about blue nail polish! Kids like it and have been wearing it for years....I don't care for it.
