Celeb Nails: Taylor Swift

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).


  1. I am being Taylor swift at a costume party but I’m a brunette. What do I do? And try purple with neon green. I tried and it looks fabulous!!!

    1. How do you feel about wigs? Even if you just tried to match your hair style and/or recreate her make up look you’d be golden… You could write lyrics on your arms like she does before every show also.

What do you think?
