Protecting my flimsy nails and keeping myself amused with a new manicure: NCLA Venice Beach Vixen (click here to see arm swatches of all the NCLA polishes).
This polish is actually a little more muted than I thought it would be (based on the bottle, and the photo on NCLA’s website). In sunlight, it’s artificial blueberry. Like maybe the color of Jelly Belly blueberry jellybeans. Or Facebook’s toolbar. In indoor lighting, it’s darker, blueberry-navy — almost conservative, actually.
And this was bound to happen. I started off playing with jewelry (for nail polish photo shoots) in Charlotte Russe. Then I moved up to Nordstrom’s costume jewelry (by the juniors department). Now I’m hitting the harder stuff… Nordstrom’s designer jewelry. Oy.
Cuff, Argento Vivo, $328
Ring, Argento Vivo, $118
Fortunately, NCLA polishes are just $16 each.
