Tried the Trend: Matching Lips and Tips

For a long time it was considered old fashion and not at all modern to match your lipstick to your nail polish (to your shoes). But this Fall that has all changed. It is now super trendy to match your lipstick to your nail polish so I wanted to give it a try. I had the perfect excuse when attending the season opening for the Charlotte Symphony. My dress was nude with a black lace overlay so I wanted some color in my makeup and accessories.

For my manicure I went to one of my go to red nail polishes; OPI Perfectly Red. It is a gorgeous tomato red creme and applies wonderfully. Orly Haute Red is an easily accessible dupe for this polish.

L’Oreal’s Colour Riche lipstick in British Red is a perfect match for this polish and I also wore matching red shoes. I ended up loving the way the entire look turned out. I’m definitely a fan of the matchy matchy trend and I’m already trying to match nail  polish to some other lipsticks in my collection.

There is a picture below the jump of the polish, lipstick and shoes together 🙂
