Jacket: H&M. Top: Jacob. Skirt: Zara. Handbag: Gucci. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: Stella & Dot. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Forever 21 small chains, BCBG large chains, J.Crew triple bangs. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene. Nail Polish: H&M.  Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’m currently loving all things yellow, so I thought I would mix it up and try a sunny nail polish.  I’m usually drawn to light pinks and neutrals, as they are easy to apply and match with everything, but I stepped a little out of my comfort zone with this bright polish.  I’m not convinced that it’s a good look for me, although I do like it with this outfit.  I felt a little like a teenager who painted her nails with actual paint during art class.  Bright nails might be one of those looks I love on others, but not on me.  Do you tend to stick to “match with everything” nail polish colours, or are you more adventurous when it comes to your nails?

    Love the yellow jacket looks great on you! I tend to paint my nails every color under the sun, because in my opinion I can always take it off with nail polish remover.

    I think the nails look great, although I know exactly what you are talking about… For whatever reason, I just like my fingernails to be naked. I say it’s because I chip them, but really I would feel like a teen among teens (as a teacher). Now my toes- I go crazy but they are rarely seen.

    Anyway, I love the skirt with the yellow top. The hem and pattern of the skirt is very modern!

    • Jenny
      July 24, 2012

      Thanks so much Katie! It’s funny, I ALWAYS go for a neutral on my toes because the polish lasts much longer, and I don’t want to worry about my toes clashing with the colour of my sandals. I really need to be a little more adventurous! 🙂

    If there is one thing I don’t have a lot of in my closet it’s def tulip shaped skirts! I love the style of the one you are wearing and what a great moto jacket in yellow! I love nails in any colour, at first bright nails seemed weird to me, but over time I love it. Are you going to attempt neon nails next 😉

    • Jenny

    All right, can I raid your closet? No? Ok, well at least I can pin this for inspiration. I love everything about this outfit…especially the skirt. I’m the same way with polish, I always paint my toes some shade of red or pink and truthfully, I don’t bother much with my fingernails because it chips off so fast. 🙁 You’ve inspired me to try a bright color, though!

    Jenny, I love your look from head to toe, SERIOUSLY. I am in LOVE with that flirty tulip skirt and that yellow colour looks so fabulous with your hair colour and skin tone. Yellow and mustard yellow is definitely one of your colours! I loved that yellow zara shirt in that other post on you so much too :-). Nailpolish colours are picked up by mood and depending on working situations :-). I have yellow polish too but have worn it just once as of your names reasons, also I feel like a teenager sometimes even with my 31 hahaha. Thank you so much for your lovely birthday wishes by the way, was totally appreciated sweetie 🙂

    I love bright nails and have practically every color under the sun in terms of nail polish, except for probably yellow. lol! (I’m yellowy-olive toned though, so it wouldn’t look good on me!) I think it looks good on you though! 🙂

    Great outfit! I am obsessed with yellow as well. I have not tried yellow nail polish but I am not sure it would be appropriate for my work place. I am way too lazy to apply a nail color just for the weekend so I tend to stick with very neutral colors (like clear) that let’s me be lazy.

      Ha ha, I’m pretty lucky that I get into the office before everyone else, so I usually paint my nails first thing in the morning. It’s great because I could change my colour daily if I wanted to, however, I’m way too lazy for that too. It’s actually on the weekends that I never want to do my nails, so I completely understand!
