This. Is red.

I decided to have fire red nail polish one day when I saw this image of Dree Hemingway. She wears a fabulous skirt (I read somewhere that it’s by Helmut Lang), dresses it down with a simple grey T tucked in, literally no hairdo and a barely-there make-up – in a nutshell: she is a beauty with the kind of coolness-factor, the “I don’t take myself too seriously” attitude that made me look twice. And the thing I keep on looking at first? Her super bright red nail varnish. I needed to have it. Not that it turned me into Dree Hemingway, but I figured out something: Screaming bright red varnish is a multi-talent. It gives a laid-back boyfriend jeans/shirt look a more sophisticated touch and a serious low profile outfit that certain something. Old story? Sorry, I’m still a nail varnish beginner. Also sorry for all the nail polish posts recently.

  1. Grey and flaming red is a sure winner. You must have someone to put the varnish on your nails… It’s PERFECT!

  4. Oh come on! You look as beautiful and as really really young (you know you do! people mistake you for intern haha) as when i met you. ^^
    When Leo and i first started going out, i used to wear red nail polish all the time and he used to wear this horrific Che Guevara shirt, so we made a trade: i’d give up the red (he H-A-T-E-S it) and he’ll give up the communist wear (haha). So thats history but i love it. If Dree didn’t have such a massive head (look at her, she’s like a booble head) she’ll be even prettier. These models are now so thin, their heads are massive, they look so alien like (not in a good Sigorney Weaver attacker way) haha. bizarre.

    Oh gray on gray is amazing ;~~~~ she has lovely style (her and Theodora Richards). love them.
