Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails—and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every Thursday for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.
While I was in a meeting this week with the Beauty Partnerships Team here at Birchbox, I couldn’t help but notice an impeccably matched head-to-toe outfit on our director of beauty partnerships, Leah. Even her manicure matched! Sporting a French mani with colors from the Essie Fall 2012 Collection, Leah used Recessionista as the base of her manicure and Miss Fancy Pants on her tips. A cute take on the classic French and the perfect lacquer combo for fall!
We talked about playing matchy matchy with your polish a while ago, but this is a whole new way to incorporate colors from your outfit into your polish choices. Next time you’re fretting over what shades to choose for your digits, look down at your outfit and draw inspiration from what you have on. Pick two shades and go with the flow—while you might think that together they’re are an unlikely duo, they may actually make for a perfectly complementary set of nails!
What do you think of matching your French mani to your outfit?
