Pick of the Week: Nail It
Now that "unconventional" colors of nail polish are au courant (navy, green, metallics, sparkles) women are free to play with nail polish colors all they want. It's no longer goth to wear black polish—it's chic. Olive green? Don't mind if I do. Sparkles are no longer for the younger set (today I'm wearing Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri polish in Blazing Blue topped with China Glaze's blue sparkly Dorothy Who? for a deep, rich look, thank you very much).
Locally you can even find a boutique that carries RGB nail polish—a favorite of celebrities and fashion editors alike. Kristin Wild, owner of Atticus, tells me that RGB nail polishes are hard to come by, but she pursued carrying the line at her Capitol Square boutique because "the nail colors they offer are hard to find around Madison. We're the only shop that carries RGB in all of Wisconsin. I always see RGB featured in magazines and blogs, but I had never seen it in a shop before. It's also an inexpensive way to change up your look. So, our customers like to pop in and pick up a new color when they can't justify purchasing a new piece of clothing."
Well put! In addition RGB's polishes don't have any toulene, formaldehyde or DBP—which means they're chemical-free. Atticus carries Mink, Steel, Oxblood (shown above) and Deep and is sold out of Slate and Plum. Wild says she'll have more shades coming in after the new year. Each bottle is $14.
