Polish Predicament

Posted on September 29, 2010 in More Fun by | 7 comments

I have been asking myself one question ALL morning – what’s my shade? So now, I’m asking you because who knows color better than fellow Lilly lovers? As the weekend approaches (can’t believe it’s already Wednesday), I am starting to pack my suitcase for a chock (and I mean CHOCK) full weekend of weddings…one on Friday evening and one on Sunday afternoon! Have I mentioned…I CAN’T WAIT because I get to wear two of my brand new dresses from our fall line (Shauna Tunic Dress & Giselle Dress)? Anyway, back to business. I LOVE the dresses but since I am wearing two dresses in one weekend…I need the perfect nail color! Nail polish is SO much fun. I truly feel it can be inspiring, like all color…picking out the right shade reminds me of buying a Lilly dress in my favorite print.


And just as it’s important to try on our dresses, it’s important to try on nail colors. The OPI website has the coolest tool to help you find your match! And we all know there’s nothing better than a match made in heaven. I promise, it solves the salon conundrum of not knowing what color to choose and standing at the “polish” wall for hours. Seriously, how many times has that happened to you? I can’t count.


Just a few hues we can’t get enough of to get your wheels spinning, your color wheels that is….

Try “Shorts Story” with the Wayles Dress.

Why? This pink reminds us of our roots.


Try “What’s With the Cattitude” with the Blayney Dress Ruffle.

Why? You’ll feel anything but blue.


Try “California Raspberry” with the Colby Dress.

Why? We’re crazzzzy in and for coral.


Try “Mimosas for Mr.& Mrs.” with EVERYTHING.

Why? Okay, the name got us…


So, check out the cast of colors at OPI and let me know what you think! With SO many to choose from, I can’t do it on my own. What shade will look equally chic with both the Shauna & Giselle? I trust you!! Immensely.

I would definitely stick with pink (of course!) Either a buff pink or a loud bright pink!

I am a big fan of Strawberry Margarita with Lilly, but these two new dresses look almost impossible to wear no matter the color, so I will look forward to some pictures after the weekend!

I think either Holy Pink Pagoda or Pink Flamenco, since both dresses have that shade of pink :)

First… love, LOVE the dresses! I would go with:
You’re a Pisa Work or Peru-B-Ruby
I SO wanted to like Chapel of Love… but it’s too baby-doll-pinkish.

Personally, I would wear Passion. It’s the perfect go-with-everything pale pink. I consider it a neutral! I hope the weekend was amazing! xoxo
