Loving Right Now

May 31, 2012
I’m always drawn to matched lip and nail collections. I loved the Chanel Extrait de Gloss Collection (from 2010, see summary on Karla Sugar) and the recent MAC Fashion Sets, in particular Angel and Please Me (see lineup on Temptalia here, here and here). Right now I’m loving something that’s a little more mixed lip/nail combination and something a little less matched, but still in the same color family. Here are a few mixed and matched combination sets I’m loving right now. Swatches below as well.

Glowing neutrals

  • I need to start matching lips and nails. It certainly looks put-together.

  • Hi Sabrina, I'm a fan of shimmery sandy colors now too. I don't seem to be reaching for 'colors' much!

  • These pairings are absolutely brilliant. Though I didn't purchase anything from the Fashion Sets collection it also inspired me to pair lips and nails. I've been favoring warm toned lips with cool toned nails in the same color family as you said.

    What a lovely and beautifully designed post. You've got quite the artist's eye 🙂

  • D&G raspberry is calling my name…what an original gloss!

  • In general I don't do matched lips and nails (I have only basic nail polishes), but the closest match I do is Dior Lip Gloss 256 Negligee Pink and Chanel Mica Rose Nail Polish.

    Really love Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Nude Lilac. Very pretty!

  • Hi, Sabrina, I really like your Glowing neturals and Coral and gold combos. I initially thought the new YSL golden glosses were too brown, they actually look very pretty on your skin.

  • Oooh chanel holiday is lovely 🙂

  • Beautiful! I love the YSL Golden Shell gloss 🙂

  • OOh the NARS Ratin Jot has caught my eye! I love a coral lip paired with pink or orange nails.

  • Gorgeous pairings. I love the oranges and gold, I just got Chanel Holiday and love it.
    Love the YSL glosses.

  • Love love love what you have posted. I know this sounds real silly but I have never really considered matching lips with my nails before!

  • I love reading your reviews and looking at your pictures 🙂 You really do such a great job and I'm so happy that I found your blog! Just because you linked to me actually! Thanks again for that!


  • Loving all those shades. I can't believe I still haven't picked up Nakkar. I've been lemming those YSL glosses since they came out. Lately though I've been trying to restrain from buying more glosses. I keep thinking of how short a life span glosses have compared to lipsticks and I start feeling anxious about the size of my gloss collection. Does this ever worry you?

  • You have great taste in nail polish, they are all gorgeous! I particularly love Chanel 515! xX

    Hi Sabrina,

    I've never commented, but I love your blog – very tasteful!
    Do you remember the "Must have nail polish" post one year ago? I loved that post and was wondering if you would consider doing an update with this year's favourites. I am sure a lot of readers would enjoy it.
    All the best, Amaltee

  • Dior brown panama is to-die-for!
