I recently stumbled upon these slides by Belgium designer Veronique Branquinho for a steal on the pre-owned designer goods website Vestiaire Collective. In order to really show them off with aplomb I decided to indulge in a last minute pedicure. Unfortunately, having run out of my usual Essie favourite “Limo-Scene” I was forced to take drastic and dare I say flashy action!
As you may know, I have something of an issue with red nail polish. Generally speaking, when it comes to nail polish I tend to gravitate towards the nude opaques, clean and suitable for most occasions right?
One of the things I find particularly troublesome about sporting red nail polish is the lingering eyes on ones hands and feet which (as a somewhat sensitive soul) I find rather challenging.
Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate there are instances when red nail polish on the toes works wonders for morale. For instance, when one is sporting the favoured Birkenstocks , red varnish can certainly lift an outfit from “couldn’t care less” to chic insouciance. What do you think? Do you lean towards a French Manicure or a bold red? Let me know your choice and why? Bisous. xx
