Navy nails

Image: Hello it's Valentine

EN - From New York to Paris, this autumn the most sophisticated nails are navy! Navy nail polish can complement the blue in your outfit or bring a dissonant, yet stylish, element to your look. Either way they're a modern and refined choice and offer a chic alternative to the usual red over the Christmas party season.
(Thank you James for the correction of the translation)

FR - Cet automne, de Paris à New York, les ongles plus sophistiqués se teignent en bleu marine. Les ongles bleus peuvent compléter un habillement de même couleur ou, au contraire, être l'élément dissonant de ce dernier. En tout cas le vernis bleu marine est un choix moderne et raffiné et, pendant les nombreuses fêtes de Noël, une alternative chic à l’habituel vernis rouge.
(Merci Davide pour la correction de la traduction)

IT - Questo autunno, da New York a Parigi, le unghie più chic si tingono di blu scuro, nell'intenso tono del navy (o blu notte). Rigorosamente abbinate a indumenti blu oppure lasciate come elemento dissonante, le unghie navy – se sapute portare – sono raffinate e moderne e, in vista dei numerosi party che ci attendono a fine anno, costituiscono una sofisticata alternativa alle solite unghie rosse!

November inspirations


EN - It's November, and the entrancing and warm autumnal colours make me want to dress like an English girl... by the way, I am really looking forward to watch the new episodes of Downton Abbey! I love the clothes of Lady Mary and the way of dressing of the flappers of the twenties! It's November, and I want to wear perky tights and to tie my hair up in a chignon with tiny braids. I want to wear my blue coat that puts me in high spirits. I want to ride my bicycle every day to go to the market and I want to fill my basket with fresh and healthy things. I want to learn to play the piano and I want also to enrol on a course of classical ballet. I want to study and to discover as much as I can. I want to come upon serendipitous events, to make a plan and then to change direction. We are at the height of autumn and these fragile leaves remind me of not procrastinating happiness, because happiness is today, happiness is now.


IT - È novembre, e i meravigliosi colori caldi e avvolgenti dell'autunno mi fanno venire voglia di vestirmi da inglesina... e poi non vedo l'ora di vedere i nuovi episodi di Downton Abbey... adoro i vestiti di Lady Mary e delle flappers degli anni '20! È novembre, e voglio mettere calze allegre sotto le gonne e legare i capelli in uno chignon con piccole trecce. Voglio indossare il mio bel cappottino blu che mi mette tanta allegria. Voglio prendere ogni giorno la bicicletta per andare al mercato e riempire il cestino di spesa fresca. Voglio imparare a suonare il pianoforte e iscrivermi a un corso di danza classica. Voglio studiare, dissetare le mie mille curiosità e conoscere il più che sia possibile. Voglio imbattermi in eventi serendipici, fare un programma e poi cambiare direzione. Siamo nel cuore dell'autunno e queste fragili foglie mi ricordano di non rimandare la felicità, perché la felicità è oggi, è racchiusa proprio in questo istante.
