Of NCLA’s impressive nail polish lineup, the color that first (and most loudly) demanded my attention was Santa Monica Shore Thing. I adore this polish. It’s “Tiffany green” (not quite “Tiffany blue”): an antique pastel blued-green enamel creme. To me it feels vaguely southwestern and so very chic. I want to wear it on my nails forever.
I was so enamored of my manicure, I declared I needed some new rings to show it off. So I went to Charlotte Russe to play dress-up. Photo shoots for jewelry and nail polish often look pretty similar: manicured nails, plenty of bling.
And since Tiffany’s was right downstairs, I thought I’d go see just how close this polish is to that famous shade. I think this picture shows: it’s just a tinge more green.
Santa Monica Shore Thing is $16, available through NCLA’s website and several other retailers.
