I have publicly admitted previously that I, Allison, love Taylor Swift. I just can’t help it! Her songs are so catchy. And I know I’m not the only one! I was forced to admit this slightly guilty pleasure after I purchased Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale, though straight up copying Taylor’s manicure may be a bit more crazy….
After seeing this picture of Taylor on what looks to be a coffee run I just had to replicate her nails. I don’t know if she did it on purpose or if the manicure was a total accident but she had all her nails except her pinky nail painted a light blue. The pinky nail was a bright cherry red. This was the perfect opportunity to use 2 of my favorite nail polishes; Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda and Madame X.
As I was doing this manicure I was very unsure of it. I thought it might look really strange. But as it turns out I ended up loving this combination of colors. I even tweeted about it from my car while I was waiting on my boyfriend to get his morning coffee. Clearly I was obsessed!
In the original picture I couldn’t tell if Taylor had any nails on her right hand painted red. I decided to do my pointer finger on my right hand in the cherry red color just to add some continuity to the look.
This is a manicure I could see myself doing again. Maybe even trying out some other color combos…. What do you think? Is this something you would try?
There are quite a few more pictures below the jump (including a proper swatch).
