I haven’t seen a movie character’s polish receive this much attention since Emily Blunt sported Essie Aruba Blue in The Devil Wears Prada.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t until I went to NYC for fashion week that I finally caught the film. Now I get it. Ginnifer’s character Gigi sports a stunning purple throughout the film. To my eye it looks like she’s wearing two different shades, a lighter lilac similar to Lippmann Purple Rain and a darker red-grape that remained a mystery until recently.

Thanks to reader Marie for linking me to an Style Hunter article that reveals the big answer. HJNTIY‘s makeup artist Tina Roesler Kerwin selected Nubar Pasadena Purple for Ginnifer.

About a year and a half ago, I heard that Lead Man Brent Rice chose Nubar polishes as set decoration for a nail salon scene so I suspected that a Nubar shade was used but I’m happy to have confirmation.

Now you too can have fun purple nails like Gigi by slapping on a couple coats of Pasadena Purple. Just don’t act a fool like she did while wearing it. I mean seriously girls, I know she’s playing an over-dramatized version of a stereotype but do any of us really know any girls that ridiculous? I’m glad she got a happy ending but what a train wreck of a way to get there, no?

    yay! i’m wearing a similar shade right now — Pop Beauty’s Glam Nails in “Lilac.” More iridescent though.

    Tamar – How did I not know about Pop’s polish? Can you only buy it through their website? I’m seeing some yellows, blues, greens and purples that I MUST MUST have!

    I’m loving that purple–so bright!! Do you know any MAC/Sephora/Chanel look-alikes? If you don’t, could you recommend a colour from MAC, Sephora, and Chanel? Also, when will you review the new RBL collection? Thanks!
