When All Else Fails, Paint Your Nails The Color Of Something Valuable
February 24, 2009
I guess the ladies at Fashion Week took a hint from Wall Street: stocks are volatile, but gold is forever. SheFinds writers spied glittering gold fingernails on everyone from runway models to fashion editors. Even Kim Kardashian sported some dangerous-looking gold talons by New York jewelry fave Bijules. But, it's good to see that gold is sticking around – long after the metallic trend was spotted last spring – just in time to complement sun-kissed skin and bright spring ensembles.
Not unlike red lipstick, gold can be a hard color to get just right. But there's a shade for everyone (the challenge is just finding it), so if you've tried the gold polish before and hated it maybe you just need something slightly different.
Revlon Gold Get Em ($5), Essie Shifting Power ($9), and OPI Curry Up Don't Be Late ($6) are each a different shade of yellow gold. Because my skin is more olive in tone, I favor OPI's shade from its India Collection. But, if you wear cool colors better, the Essie and Revlon formulas have a lot less orange in them.
