manicure du jour: 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS in Anarchy

the new limited edition 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS nail polish collection features some fabulous shades {after seeing a sneak peek at fashion week, i really didn't expect anything less}. all inspired by "colors that live in the shadows", the nine polishes range from dark denim and a black sea green to a graphite grey and black bronze.

one standout of this collaboration is Anarchy. this french vanilla shade is, in my opinion, a perfect-for-summer nail color; it's unassuming and might appear to some people as boring, but i find it to be simply gorgeous. opaque and easy to apply, Anarchy is a universally-flattering shade that looks great on both tips and toes!

Anarchy, and the rest of the 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS nail polish collection, will be available july 15 at NARS boutiques and, then at Sephora and other specialty stores beginning august 1, 2014.

NY Fashion Week: 3.1 Phillip Lim

if you've never heard of Phillip Lim, put his name in your memory bank. he has managed to rise up, and place himself among some of the best in the industry in a relatively short amount of time with his cool, romantic style.

for his spring 2009 collection, i will admit, i wasn't a fan of all of the looks, but there were few that grabbed my attention:

and the shoes (Christian Louboutin):
