Nailspiration: Maxi Dress

Essie In The Cab-ana and OPI You're Such a BudapestLast weekend a friend of mine graduated and had a party. It was outside in a courtyard and the weather has been really warming up here in Charlotte. I decided it was finally time to pull out my summer maxi dresses. Despite being on the shorter side (I’m 5’4″) I’ve really come to love maxi dresses.

I pulled out one of my favorite maxi dresses and began to contemplate what I was going to do with my nails. Typically I’d do a contrasting color but this time I decided I wanted to match my polish to my dress. I pulled out a bunch of polishes and matched them up to the colors in the dress (seriously this happened…there is photographic evidence).

Finally I decided to do a manicure with Essie In The Cab-ana and OPI You’re Such a Budapest. The result was lovely. I was actually surprised how much I loved the color combination.

It’s gotten to the point where I’m either planning my outfits around my nails or I’m planning my nails based on my outfit. Sometimes I think I’m crazy! Hopefully I’m not the only one 🙂

As always, there are additional swatches below the jump!

  1. That’s a very unlikely colour combination but you are right, it works. It certainly grew on me, very fast… My OPI You are such a Budapest is still waiting to be worn; it won’t be long now. 🙂

    • I was really unsure about this color combo at first but ended up loving it!

      You need to try YSAB. I was shocked how much I loved it 🙂

  2. I have just applied it… with my beloved Fairy Dust as top coat. I lovelovelove it – but I believe I’ll love it much more tomorrow, by daylight! 🙂

What do you think?
