what is the best matching shade and brand of nail varnish please?
I need some for a gift

ThePhantomPlopper Tue 30-Jun-09 20:10:04

I have them.

I am wearing gold nail polish with them ATM.

ThePhantomPlopper Tue 30-Jun-09 20:10:42

Not sure that's matching though.

AnyFucker Tue 30-Jun-09 20:13:28

with purple??

ooo, don't try to match it, you will never manage that

I would go for something completely clashing such as turquoise

Barry M do a fab neon turquoise that doesn't make your toes look like they are dropping off with the cold

Or tangerine orange ?

Black would look good too, if you don't fancy bright

I was wearing a tropical orange one last week with them, looked fab.

Think it was a No7 one.

AnyFucker Tue 30-Jun-09 20:21:07

yeah !

brokenspacebar Tue 30-Jun-09 20:22:29

I wore nails inc berry red, looks good, purple goes with any colour surely?

brokenspacebar Tue 30-Jun-09 20:25:34


but I agree with anyfucker.

GingerIgnoramus Tue 30-Jun-09 21:10:58

oh oh
tropical orang eis good colour wheel wise isnt it

GingerIgnoramus Tue 30-Jun-09 21:13:20

GingerIgnoramus Tue 30-Jun-09 21:14:52

Maybe Revlon one perfect coral

fishie Tue 30-Jun-09 21:15:51

silver is good. or the lovely dark grey borjois.

GingerIgnoramus Tue 30-Jun-09 21:16:44

oh grr
has to be high streetable

fishie Tue 30-Jun-09 21:18:52

bourjois but i got mine in boots

fishie Tue 30-Jun-09 21:20:36

is your boots one with a big beauty bit? just go there you'll find something. otherwise go to a salon which does nails inc or essie and choose something nice.

GingerIgnoramus Tue 30-Jun-09 21:20:48

oh i like asphalt grey

cocolepew Tue 30-Jun-09 21:22:32

I wear grey or navy and it goes with all my Birkies [show off]

fishie Tue 30-Jun-09 21:22:36

it is cocolepew's find. i got it for assistant for birthday too. you do need really good remover though or toes look filthy afterwards.

fishie Tue 30-Jun-09 21:23:01

GingerIgnoramus Tue 30-Jun-09 21:23:11

ta all.

I have the shoes - and a tiny, tiny bottle of perfectly matching varnish that my sister found in the States and which I have now lost. So I am watching this thread with interest. Currently, I am wearing mine with grey MAC nail varnish.
(I love the shoes, and was very happy to see them in TK Maxx, thus saving a few squids)

cocolepew Tue 30-Jun-09 21:26:26

smile mention Birkies or nail polish and I appear.

ravenAK Tue 30-Jun-09 21:26:29

If it were your nails I'd say base coat of black for lovely depth then cheap (Barry M?) shiny purple over the top.

For a gift I think you'd best go contrast - you won't get that intensity of goth purple in one bottle! grin

Right i got a revlon one called something plum

GingerIgnoramus Wed 01-Jul-09 12:25:42

plum seduction - is a stronger pinky purple in rl
