Anthropologie is one of my favorite places to look for inspiration, whether it’s browsing the racks in person or online. Currently, I’m loving this room from their online shop. It’s full of drama, and the dark taupe walls and deep purple accents feel all grown up. Accordingly, I’m layering a nude taupe polish with a light grey on my nails, lining my upper lashes with purple smudgy liner, and covering lips with a berry gloss.

Strangebeautiful Perfume Polish, $28, anthropologie.com
We love perfume and we love nail polish. So when we learned about Strangebeautiful’s Perfume Polish, we knew that it would be right up our alley. The new offering is a collaboration between the creator of niche polish company Strangebeautiful, Jane Schub, and independent perfumer, Dawn Spencer Hurwitz.
The earthy fragrance is called Violet Leather and is a combination of black leather, tobacco, ylang ylang, tuberose, and sandalwood. What we think is so smart about this lacquer is that it’s clear, so it can be applied over any nail color. But buyer beware: The polish is pricey (a steep $28 a pop), especially when you consider that the fragrance only lasts for a day. But die-hard polish lovers are sure to eat this up, so if you’re interested, act fast and score your bottle at Anthropologie now.
