Over the past few years, the house of Chanel has become associated not only with fashion trend-setting, but also with driving nail varnish trends each season. So, when we saw's sneak peek of the company's fall colors—khakis!—we instantly knew the neutral fingertip would be a beauty must-have next season.

"Peter Philips has created a limited-edition set of khaki-colored nail lacquers that will debut in New York at Chanel stores on Fashion’s Night Out," writes "Khaki Brun is an earthy gray-brown; Khaki Rose is a muted, dusty terra-cotta; and our personal favorite, Khaki Vert, is a mossy green that just may be this fall’s answer to October ’09’s smash hit Jade."
