So I have a wedding next weekend and am trying to decide what to wear on my fingers and toes so I am looking good all around! First up: the dress!
This picture is a little dark, but I think you can get a feeling for the color-- it's a deep wine color, very purple-red (so of course my camera has a difficult time capturing it). I plan on wearing my wedding jewelry (as in, the jewelry I wore at my own wedding, not jewelry I have specifically for weddings) with it:
And here's a slightly less washed-out picture:
So now that you've seen the dress, I have come up with some ideas-- at least in terms of color. Since my dress is a purply red and my jewelry is bronzy, I came up with purple, red and brown/metallic for potential nail colors. For nails I was thinking either purple or brown/bronze and then red on my toes.
First up: Purples!
From left to right we have Orly Rock The World and Rococo A-Go-Go, OPI Catherine the Grape (one of my all-time favs!), Cult Nails Enigmatic, Essie Sexy Divide, It's Genius, and Damsel in a Dress. Quite honestly, I think I've already ruled out Sexy Divide, because it's a little too purple, and I need something slightly more subdued. I have a feeling Sexy Divide would be better used for one of my Football Friday posts! I contemplated adding Zoya Faye to this group, but my bottle is completely dried up! Seriously lame-- I have no idea how that happened.
Alternatively, we have some brown/metallics that would compliment my jewelry and makeup very well.
OPI Brisbane Bronze, Julep Boris & Nicole, Zoya Hermina, OPI Chicago Champagne Toast, OPI Glitzerland. I think Glitzerland might be a little too cool with my jewelry, though.
And then finally, on my toes, red!
Here we have Cult Nails Quench, butter LONDON Knees Up, a-england Percival, Cult Nails Iconic, Zoya Rihana, and Rescue Beauty Lounge Moulin Rouge.
Now, the wedding is on a Husky game day... so I could wear a brown/bronze on my fingers and put the purple on my toes, although I think it might be fun to have a hidden, fun red too. Or really, any combination. I think these colors all great... I wish I could wear them all. Unfortunately, I don't have swatches of pretty much any of these and probably will not have time in the next week to accomplish that, unfortunately.
Any thoughts or other suggestions on what I should wear?
Edited to add: here are a couple of pictures of some of the polishes swatched with my dress and jewelry! The swatches aren't great-- I was just trying to get something done in a hurry. All the photos are taken with a flash. From left to right I have: Zoya Hermina, Cult Nails Enigmatic, Julep Boris & Nicole, Orly Rock the World and Orly Rococo A-Go-Go.
At this point, I am honestly think I may go with Zoya Hermina on my fingers and Cult Nails Enigmatic on my toes.
