…At least on your toes?
Ever since that NY Times article on nail salon in New York came out, I have been avoiding manicures and pedicures like the plague. But that also means I’ve been having more fun trying out new colors and polishes at home (let’s face it – when you’re spending X amount of money on someone else doing it, you tend to stick to the safe colors and more familiar brands).
For the longest time, I’ve resisted shimmer nail polish.
Too 90s. Too 2002. Not matte. Definitely not chic.
But THEN Lisa turned up one day to the Studio with gold, shimmer polish on her toes. Framed by a neutral sandal and dressed head-to-toe in white, it was such a pretty detail. Almost like a pop of gold jewelry. And that had me a little inspired, so I decided to stick to my usual bare finger nails and paint on some of Marc Jacob’s lacquer in Petra…
And, okay, there’s a hint of the early 00s in there, but it’s something a little different – with a dose of nostalgia. Plus, when you’re feeling a little down, it’s nice to just wriggle – and look down at – your twinkle toes!
Do you ever take on a shimmer polish? Or are you devoted to more matte and traditional lacquers (like Brie!)?
Polish, Marc Jacobs.
