While watching the season premiere of Mad Men last week I was once again really struck by the amazing attention to detail from costume designer Janie Bryant. I love reading interviews with her about where and how she sources the costumes for the show and how there is a story behind all of the pieces. Talk about a dream job!
I mentioned on my facebook page a few days ago how much I loved the sunglasses Megan Draper wears in Hawaii at the beginning of the episode, I also loved her make up throughout the episode and particularly the white nail polish she wore on New Year's Eve. So I went out in search of an opaque white nail polish and found Matt White by Barry M.
I think this is such a great shade for all year round, Summer or Winter. White doesn't seem to be a nail colour I read about or see on blogs at all really so I wanted to share how I got on with this one. I was worried this was going to look like Tipp-Ex on my nails but the colour is really nice and not as in your face as I thought it might be. It's not matte as the name suggests, but actually quite glossy and fully opaque after 2 coats. The formula is a little thick for my liking but for €4.59/£2.99 I can't really complain too much. These are available from the Barry M site and in Boots.
What do you think of white nails? More importantly what did you think of Mad Men?
