This week’s Bionic Asks… Do you ever match your nail polish to your dress?
This weekend I am attending a semi-fancy dinner reception. Since most of my dresses were either formal, or had a Spring season feel (pale yellows or bright polka dots), I decided to take an older dress and alter it to suit the occasion. This dress is a dark, dark navy blue topped with semi-matte sequins. The toned-down sequins make it easier to wear and less blingy for this not-so-formal event.
And now onto the beauty portion…
I’ve decided that I want at least my toes to match the dress. I dug through my nail polish stash to find Sally Hansen Salon “After Midnight”. After Midnight is a dark navy, almost black with a hint of sparkle. To add a my own “sequins” to the polish, I then applied CND’s Sapphire Sparkle. The pedicure is finished with my favorite matte top coat by Rescue Beauty Lounge.
I considered going with a deep berry or classic red on my toes, but I tend to prefer dark and “different” colors. I grew up wearing reds and pinks- so now I usually gravitate to blues, greens, silvers and vampy almost-blacks. I still may wear a berry color on my nails for a splash of brighter color.
Have you ever matched your nail polish to your clothes? I know some of you may like this, and others won’t. Feel free to share your opinions, but please remember no bashing or rude comments. Part of being a Bionic Beauty means that even through the anonymity of the internet we treat each other with respect.
Also, feel free to share your suggestions for what color I should paint my fingernails. Clear? Clear with holographic sparkles? The aforementioned berry or a classic red? Or something else all together?
