It’s never too late for a #ManiMonday look, right? I was all indecisive about what to put on my nails today and then the L’Oreal Miss Denim Summer 2014 nail polish collection arrived and inspiration struck. This mix of five denim shades and one rosy pink, all in a textured finish, were just begging to be worn together.

The Inspiration

Remember these Current/Elliott Stiletto jeans that every celebrity and their mother wore a couple years ago? They’re sold out now but I never quite got them out of my head and they’re they first thing that came to mind when I saw the Miss Denim polishes.

Originally, I was going to create a pretty literal take using the lightest of the Miss Denim shades, Distressed Turquoise, over the periwinkle-hued Skinny Jeans but I liked the contrast of rose and turquoise even better.


The Miss Denim textures are all creamy, so they dry without any shimmer. Vintage Rose has a pearly sheen in the bottle but it’s lost on the nail. While I prefer sparkly texture, I love these colors together so I’m overlooking their lack of glitz.

Colors Used (thumb to pinkie): Stripes with L’Oreal Vintage Rose and Indigo Classic, L’Oreal Skinny Jeans, L’Oreal Blue My Mind, L’Oreal Jean & Tonic stars over Vintage Rose, L’Oreal Distressed Turquoise. Two coats of each.

To create the stars, I used Nail Vinyls which has moved its store to The stripes are created with thin detail painters tape from

    Leave it to you to make these look good. I put these kind of textured polishes on my nails and it looks like I tried to tear up a home’s worth of tile with wet nails…-.-
