style board: reds and blues

July 18, 2012

NYC is hot, hot, hot right now, so I’ve been taking my morning iced coffee down to the Brooklyn waterfront where there’s always at least a hint of a breeze. It’s also the perfect photo background for a colorful mani.

Red and blue is one of my favorite color combos right now, and I’ve been sporting the contrasting shades on my nails in the 3:2 ratio I’ve begun to refer to as ‘BeyoncĂ©-style‘.

This look feels like a fresh update to the “status nail” we’ve all been doing for a while now. What do you think?

And for a little more nail inspiration this morning, head on over to Birchbox where I’ll show you how to turn one polish into a DIY ombrĂ© mani.

I’m off to go park myself in front of a fan for the rest of the day. Stay cool!

    I’m loving the blue and red mani! I’m thinking of doing the same with OPI’s A Roll in the Hague and a Magenta color. I have a wedding in NY in August. I hope it cools down by then ;)

      A Roll in the Hague is a gorgeous color. We’re having a bit of a heat wave right now so hopefully it’ll be cooler when you’re in town!
