It’s weird and nitpick-y, but I don’t like when my nails clash with my clothes. I think some people would argue that nail polish goes with anything, but I don’t know: I’d hesitate to wear a Gwyneth Paltrow-style minimalist outfit after getting a neon, glitter-y manicure, and I steer clear of my motorcycle boots and studded-anything when I’m wearing country club-y Ballet Slippers on my fingertips. I’m into print-mixing in my clothing, but for some reason I like my hands and my outfits to set the same tone, at least roughly.
For that reason, I’m a natural fan of manicure and handbag pairings as well as manicure and jewelry matching. I’ll be turning to BaubleBar for the latter: their collaboration with Essie just launched today, offering an Essie nail polish and matching bangle—and two more bangles of your choice—for just $50. Anyone neurotic like me will appreciate that pre-packaged effort to keep your nails and outfit in harmony. (Everyone else, you can appreciate that it’s pretty decent street style photographer catnip…or at the very least, prime Instagram material.)
See the starter sets below—you get to pick two more bangles, too—and shop the full range of combos here.
