An especially frivolous post tonight, inspired by Lena’s comment on my review of NARS Angela. I mentioned in the post that Angela was a perfect match for one of my favorite nail polishes, OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries, and Lena wrote, “I used to pair up lippies and polishes and even labeled them, so I do understand this type of joy.” I’m not sure I’ve ever consciously matched my lipstick to my nail polish, but Lena’s comment inspired me to go through my stash and find some color pairings. Not all of these are perfect matches, but it turns out that I have more near-matches than I expected! Alas, I don’t have any blue or green lipstick to go with my mint and cobalt polishes…
