Katy Perry painted her nails a glittery blue to accompany her Smurfette dress that she wore to The Smurfs premiere. The dress was sparkly and full of sequins–definitely a bold statement–yet her blue nails were soft and icy, and the glitter in the polish gave her nails more of a neutral metallic feel. She looked adorable and though her outfit was not one that could be worn every day, it was definitely appropriate for the occasion.
Navy nails are bound to be the perfect shade for the fall months. Navy also proved to be the perfect shade for Kristen Stewart to coordinate with the red studded dress she wore to the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. It might not be fall yet, but navy is another shade that falls into the neutral category. It is refreshing to see Kristen sporting deep navy nails with red, rather than the more typical nude or red shades that might normally be worn with a red dress.
Whether you want to try navy nails like Kristen Stewart, icy blue nails like Katy Perry, or a shade in between, nail polish companies offer plenty to choose from. OPI is releasing two shades of blue this month, Dior has shades called Blue Denim and Tuxedo Blue, Nars has a blue called Galion, and Essie has a blue named Mesmerize. Feel free to experiment, but to truly pull off this new beauty trend, be smart and choose a shade of blue that complements your skin tone. Just because The Smurfs is out does not mean you should look like one.
