It’s almost mid-November, the days have been moody, the kind of days that usually call for dark and rich details, like a red or burgundy nail polish, this one in particular. Instead, I’ve been wearing Naked State of Mind, by Mary Jo Matsumoto. Aerial and graceful, the shell pink colour is the perfect feminine touch to my tomboyish look I hardly stray away from during the cold months. But the beauty of its dusty transparency is that it goes with practically everything in your wardrobe, and while red nails may give character to an outfit, nude manages to conserve its style.
If you are not familiar with Mary Jo’s nail polishes yet, you should know that they are 4FREE, which means that they contain no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toulene or camphor. Silky, glistening and lasting, they are the only nail varnishes I’ve been wearing for more than a year. Because whenever I find a favourite beauty product, I know it’s going to be a long-term relationship.
