Into The Blue
Since adopting a strictly neutral-or-classic-color manicure mandate a few seasons ago, we effectively left our trendy-lacquer days behind us. But there was a time, dear readers, when we spearheaded hand designs, relished in glitter Calgels, and used every last drop of Chanel’s cult-favorite Jade—not to mention the house’s former creative director of makeup Peter Philips’ lesser-known, albeit equally lust-worthy, follow-up, Riva. It debuted at Karl Lagerfeld’s 2010 Cruise collection in Saint-Tropez and immediately became an obsession when we saw Georgia May Jagger and co. walking down the runway, their tips a shade of creamy robin’s egg that somehow broke the pastel-aqua mold. It was a limited edition, sadly, but we’ve often thought about it in summers since—newfound minimal mantra not withstanding—as it truly was the perfect complement to warm, tanned limbs. That’s why Leigh Lezark’s azure fingers at Henry Holland’s Resort dinner last night in New York struck a chord with us—especially considering our recent discovery of RGB Cosmetics’ new sky-hued varnish called Pool. Needless to say, the combination is giving us some surprisingly colorful ideas for our weekend nail-salon plans. You, too?
