Fanatic Feedback with Gossip Girl – Does Nail Color Define Us?
Let’s look at Jenny (Taylor Momsen). She’s a girl from a more bohemian background than her Upper East Side classmates. And while her overall style reflects her passion for fashion and utter girly-ness, she lets a little bit of Brooklyn edge peek out in her nail color. Check out the funky, electric blue shade she was sporting on set while filming a future episode. When you see someone wearing an eclectic nail color, what do you think?
|Or what about Serena (Blake Lively)? She rocked the dark nail when it was in vogue but she’s moved on to light metallics. Very on trend for Fall. Combined with her ultra-chic wardrobe, Serena gives off the fashion plate vibe, no?|
And then there’s Vanessa (Jessica Szohr). She is confident and spunky and I feel that the bold red nails she dons enhance her persona. When I see a woman wearing red nails “confident” is the first word that comes to mind.
Obviously the Gossip Girl makeup, hair and wardrobe team meticulously plan each look to define the character and that certainly includes choosing their nail polish. So what does that say about nail color and how we’re judged? Do you ever consider what outsiders will think when they see your shade of choice? Do you think it affects how people perceive or treat you? Weigh in fanatics!
