Why: When I was a plaid-skirted high school student, I thought that coating my fingernails in dark green metallic polish was a great way to express my uniform-covered identity. Now that Iâ€™m older, Iâ€™ve packed away my teen angst with my crested blazer, but I still like to rock crazy colors on my toenails during their cloistered winter months. But now that itâ€™s open season for open-toe shoes, Iâ€™m ready for something a bit more…mature. I tried EstÃ©e Lauder Pure Color Crystal Nail Lacquer in Satin Ribbon, a light shimmery pink shade that looked nice in a pair of open-toe pumps without creating a stark contrast between my nail color and my not-quite-yet-tan feet. No risk of detention, either.
