This was the pedi colour for my trip to Turkey!

My pedicure!

A gorgeous, pale blue crème.  Almost like a very pale Tiffany blue! This is from NARS’ collaboration with designer Thakoon and the colour is Kutki.  I got a lot of compliments on this one, on both continents!  The formula is amazing! Super smooth, opaque and well-pigmented.  It’s great on tan-to-dark skin.  And since I think feet shots by themselves are weird, here are the super cute wedges that I wore! They are the Leroy Espadrilles from Sam Edelman.  The entire Thakoon for NARS collection is still available at the NARS website or at Sephora, but it’s limited edition.  I will have more swatches up soon!!!

What is your hot weather colour??

Fashion and beauty have always gone hand in hand. Now, those hands have the nail polish to match. Introducing the Thakoon for NARS Nail Collection, the brand’s first collaboration with a fashion designer in the nail category.
Already frequent collaborators at New York Fashion Week, founder and creative director Francois Nars has partnered with Thakoon Panichgul to develop a limited edition, six-shade nail collection.
In conceptualizing the shade range, Thakoon was inspired by the vibrant colors found in Indian spice markets. The highly saturated, high-shine shades come in an opaque finish, perfect for spring. Formula is long-wearing, chip-resistant and toluene-, formaldehyde- and DBP-free.
Since his first collection in 2004, the Thailand-born, Nebraska-raised designer’s clothes have graced chic, modern women around the globe, including Jessica Alba, Marion Cotillard, Rachel Bilson, and First Lady Michelle Obama.

NARS Makeup Artist Diane Kendel created this look for Thakoon at New York Fall Fashion Week 2011.  Thakoon’s inspirations were the spice markets in India, full on colourful!

According to Diane Kendel:

“Because the collection is so colourful, I wanted to focus on a classic, strong brow.  I kept the face natural, with a little pink in the cheek for healthy colour.  On the eyes, I focus on the contouring to show strength and attitude, a cowboy attitude that is.”
