Nails Inspired By Emma Stone's Met Gala Outfit

How freaking fun has it been to browse through the pictures of all the celebrities' outfits from the Met Gala?! I'll tell you: SO FUN. A few of my favorite looks were Rihanna, the Olsen twins, and Emma Stone.

Emma Stone's color-blocking, in particular, caught my eye - especially on the heels of the fabulously summery colors that I used in last week's mani. Something about Emma's outfit seemed to be in the same vein of mixing beautifully juicy summer colors, don't you think? If you're savvy, you may have even noticed me pin her outfit onto my Nail Polish board on Pinterest earlier this week.

For this mani, I used a brand new Revlon polish, Fuchsia Fever, which I bought on Wednesday specifically for this look. For an accent nail, I used Love & Beauty's Orchid - a polish featured on my blog earlier this year in my Radiant Orchid series.

Fuchsia Fever really surprised me - I don't know why my expectations for it were sort of low. It was a beautiful formula - smooth, liquidy, buttery and quite opaque even after just one coat... but I went for a second coat anyway.

I'm kind of loving this color combination! Kudos to whoever put together Emma Stone's outfit for her. Her side braid was amazing as well. You know I'm a huge sucker for a good side braid.

  5. I love this combo! It's so cheery! The fuchsia is freaking awesome! So rich looking! LOVE! And the lavender is a great feature. Do I see a bit of gold sheen in it as well?

  6. Your nails are really the perfect colors to be just like Emma's dress! I love it!! (Plus, so impressed at how you took inspiration for nails from her gown!)
