Nail polish inspiring fashion. Fashion inspiring nail polish. Whichever way you look at it, our new BTS 2014 nail color collection is full of gorgeous colors that we love wearing on our nails and that make us want to put together awesome new outfits! AEO’s Copy Director, Jamie S. here… I’m the one responsible for naming all of our products every season, including our nail polishes! I actually also have a beauty blog, The Beauty of Life, where I interview industry insiders, give you a look into some of my favorite products and beauty looks from the present (and from the past in my Throwback Thursday series), and (staying true to my nail polish obsession) create nail looks every Monday for my #ManiMonday series. Check out my swatches of two colors from the BTS 2014 collection here and see how they inspired a look we’re loving, and then be sure to head to my blog for a download on the rest of the collection!
Into the Blue
Into the Blue is a gorgeous deep cobalt. It’s got just a little touch of neon to really make it pop, and the color payoff is incredibly rich. Two coats yield perfect, even, opaque color. This is one of those shades I want to wear year round on my fingers and toes. It’s just got that special something.
Shining Sea is that color that just makes you go OOOHHH. The teal base is liberally packed with teal and yellow gold glitter, making the color shift and change with the light. It’s that kind of polish that just makes you keep staring at your nails all day long, just so you can keep admiring its beauty. This was definitely one of the most fun polishes I’ve gotten to name, since it’s really not like anything else I’ve seen out there. It’s the kind of color that makes me excited to paint my nails!
The perfect pairing for your blue hued nails
I think the two colors complement each other perfectly while still letting each one shine. The outfit we created was inspired by these two colors but really takes on a life of its own. These nail polishes are begging for an outfit that will make people sit up and take notice, and this is the look that does just that. A flowy floral print top with double racer-back straps and a handkerchief hem pairs perfectly back to a faded and whiskered jean. Add a wide-brimmed hat and suede booties with wraparound leather buckles and you’ve got a look that’s a little bit 70’s, a little bit boho and ALL parts cool. I love the way the blue and green polishes pop against the black and white of the top and the various browns of the accessories. This is a look that’s perfect for everything from brunch with your friends to a casual Saturday night date to a look that’s a little dressier for class.
