Something happens every time I change my nail color…
I become paralyzed with indecision. When I used to go to the nail salon, I would take eight minutes, minimum, to choose a color, much to the dismay of my nail technician. I try not to be one of these people (and make sure to tip extra). “Yes! I’m almost ready. Two more minutes! I’m so sorry.” I go in thinking I want to do a neutral and then find the most perfect red-orange I’ve ever seen. Once I went in with fall colors in mind and by the time my cuticles were pushed back, I had chosen an icy blue.
Then, the other day, while randomly looking at movie color palettes, a favorite pastime, I thought, ‘Huh…that could be a fun nail color option.’ After searching for a bit, I ran across a collection of Wes Anderson movie palettes and decided it’d be fun to try this one from The Royal Tenenbaums:
When I saw it, I instantly knew I would choose this color combo. I switched out the sage green for a sky blue I have, because it suits me a little more. Confession: I have never seen more than five minutes of The Royal Tenenbaums, but it’s on my list!
What do you think? Would you try the color palette technique at home? What polish are you wearing right now?
