Nails by Hound
As far as Jennifer Beeman is concerned, an outfit isn’t complete without some crazy-bright tips.
Jennifer Beeman’s spring 2012 line is practically engineered for summer fun: think bike-ride-ready tanks and shirtdresses that’ll get you that much closer to an outdoor brunch. But a Hound getup requires some super-bold digits, as Jennifer sees things, and she’s paired some of her favorite polish shades with pieces from her new collection to show us how it’s done.
Canoe Camp Top + Essie Tart Deco
Alder Shirtdress + Essie Turquoise & Caicos
“This color is on my toes at all times. It feels almost gel-like—it has a lot of depth. I think the blue sets off the brightness of the coral spots against the darkness of the dress itself. It’s the reverse of the Canoe Camp Top duo.”
Lakeside Tank + Butter Cheeky Chops
“Cheeky Chops is a clean, funny yellow, but it’s not neon. So it works with my pale, pinkish skin tone a lot better. It also works with the Lakeside Tank because it matches the citron-yellow spots perfectly. When you have a crazy print, why not make it crazier with your nails?”
Finch Reversible Blouse + Butter Blagger
“The dark blue color, Blagger, has a nice shine to it that goes well with the sheen of the peach silk. This combo is definitely more unusual.”
“Sometimes I like to paint most of my nails one color and one or two nails a different color. You can get more color in that way! It’s hard to tell in photos, but in-person, this dress has a peachy undertone, and I think A Crewed Interest picks that up. It’s a nice contrast to the really bright Olé Caliente, which really stands out against the print.”
