chanel haute chocolat

If you are looking for something to completely sell out in like 5 seconds...look no further than Chanel's new nail colour offering Haute Chocolat ($20)

For one, so loving the name.

Second, its color is described as a chic brown with shimmery golden flecks...they had us at shimmery.

Lastly, the name was chosen in a contest that Seventeen magazine and Chanel ingeniously ran last year.

Seventeen readers were given the challenge to come up with a name and the inspiration behind it.

The winning name and inspiration was conceived by 19 year old Amy Gonzo.

In her own words, here's how she came up with the idea:

I gathered ideas for the Seventeen nail contest from my own memories of the holidays. I wanted to combine the comfort and warmth of the season with the chic elegance that is indicative of Chanel.

How amazing is that?

Amy will be officially announced as the winner in the October 2008 issue of Seventeen (which hit newsstands September 16th).

Haute Chocolat, unfortunately, will not be at counters and online (at until October.

So mark those calendars and get your friendly neighborhood sales associate on speed dial darlings.

With love (always),
Jennifer and Christine
