I know it is strange to coordinate my nails to the month or season of the year instead of my outfits but it actually works for me because I guess I subconsciously end up picking outfits that look good with my nail color so I also end up wearing seasonal colored clothes.
This all started around my junior year of college when I decided my nails and hands just looked better when I had some color on them. I would probably paint my nails twice a week in college because I hated for them to be chipped and I had tons of time on my hands. I even got my roomie Tori into my obsession and we spent many nights watching our favorite TV shows while polishing our nails.
I guess at some point over the past 6 years I got into the habit of seasonal color coordination.
Here is what my year in nail polish normally looks like:
January – Gray (I can’t remember what color I normally wear in Jan. but for 2011 I have decided it will be gray since that is kind of what it looks like outside during the month)
February – Pale pink in honor of Valentine’s Day
March & April – Spring has normally sprung in Texas so I wear a brighter shade of pink
May – It’s the last month before the summer months start so I step it up a notch with hot pink
June & July – Summer is here in full force so out with the pinks and in with the Corals but for 4th of July I get patriotic and go back to a bright red for a few days
August – A pinkish berry color. Not too bright since it is almost the end of summer but not too dark because it is not fall yet.
September, October and November – These months signify fall to me and fall means Aggie football. So, in honor of my beloved Aggies I normally wear some shade of maroon during these months.
December – Red for Christmas, duh
This year I have decided to get all new nail polish’s because I am so over all the ones I currently own. Plus, nail polish is only like $7 a bottle so it is cheap monthly treat for me, yay!
My new color for December is OPI An Affair in Red Square.
So far I am loving this color! It is a rich shade of red with a little bit of shimmer. Perfect for the holidays!
