Many shades of blue

Although we first caught blue mania back in the summer of 08 and 09, blue is back again. Only this time the blue trend won’t be limited exclusively to turquoise. With the solstice upon us, the blue sky and its infinite palette beckon. This summer, all shades of blue are fair game and here to play. The color favorites I’m seeing and liking are deep royal blues, cerulean blues, and pale, light blues. Now that jeans have become red, yellow, pink and anything but blue, it is quite refreshing to pull out those blue jeans and sport them again. Here’s the Chanel airplane runway looks from SS 12 for inspiration.

Can’t afford Chanel? What better way to sport this trend than with bright blue nail polishes! It’s a cheap way to try out a color — it you hate it, just wipe, wipe, wipe it off and you’re only out $3 dollars or in the case of Chanel nail polish more like a whopping $55. A variety of blue polishes can be sported with almost any skin tone. Check out my selection of blue nail polishes. My favorite is the Nars Thakoon marriage which will be out in a few short weeks. Will you wear the blues?
