To me, there is nothing more glamorous and sophisticated than having a matching lip and nail combo. I think it makes the person look so well put together and polished. As an air hostess, it has been drilled into me, as part of my uniform guidelines, that lips must always match nails in a shade that compliments the uniform. Although this post isn’t an Air Hostesses Guide, it has definitely been inspired by the colours I have been wearing for work lately. Here’s my choices to have Glamorously Groomed Matching Lips and Nails.
First up is an absolute classic by Revlon, and a colour that I think is so special. Back in the 1940’s, when Revlon launched their Lips and Tips campaign, they became the first brand to have matching nail and lip colours. In 1953 Cherries In The Snow launched and this colour, to this day, is still one of Revlon’s biggest sellers. A total classic and a definite must buy, the blue toned, hot fuchsia with red undertones that is Cherries In The Snow is just beautiful. Both nail and lip colours are fully opaque in one coat and both have great lasting power.
MAC Girl About Town is a firm favourite from my lipstick collection. Introduced to this shade by Cheryl Cole (not personally of course), it has been a very well loved and repurchased shade as it is perfect for work. A bright blue fuchsia in an Amplified finish, it is long lasting and non drying. Although it packs a punch in colour, it isn’t too over the top and can be muted down with a pat of lip balm. The nail varnish also looks pretty good with a matte top coat.
Finally, the newest pair into the mix are the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty in Evelyn. I will be doing a full post with swatches on these as I simply cannot rave about them enough. The most stunning pink toned creamy coral that lasts so long on my lips that I don’t have to reapply during the day. Non drying, non moving gorgeousness in the most irresistible packaging. See what I mean? I love!
Keep an eye out for my full reviews and swatches of these perfect pairs. I’d love to know your favourite matching shades.
