I'm Sorry Miley Cyrus, But This Nail Polish Is Just Wrong

I was kind of thinking peach nail polish would be my thing this spring, but now I'm starting to think it's one of those ideas that's prettier in theory than practice. And this pic of Miley Cyrus with peach nails is part of what's making me think that.

The problem with peach nail polish is that the subtler peaches I've found look lovely in the bottle but then slick on looking like plain ol' pink, and the more apricot shades can often look icky against pale skin like mine.

Which brings me to the topic at hand: the particular peach nail polish Miley Cyrus wore to Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night in Phoenix on Saturday night.

As you can see, Miley's dress was a vivid light orange.

Now look at her peach-painted nails.

Perhaps it's the combo of the two colors together (dress, nails) that feels off-kilter to me, but this peach just looks ... icky. If motion sickness were a color, this would be it, I think. Not a fan.

Am I alone here, or is this peachy nail polish not really looking so keen? (Sorry, sorry, couldn't resist). Have you found a peach nail polish color you love? Or will you be sticking with safer pinks this season?

Okay, I'm really sick of Miley Cyrus. That said, peach is a difficult color to pull off. I've tried tons of peaches, corals, etc, and never really found the right color (pale, but not too pale, not too orange, not pink). But I just found a color that is great for summer, and looks great against my also pale skin. It's a bright-ish color, so I'm sure it would look great on tan skin too. It's called "Let's Get Sushi" and it's made by Spoiled NYC. I'm usually a nail polish (and makeup) snob, and only use OPI and Essie, but this caught my eye while shopping at CVS the other day-and it was only $1.99! Give it a try, it's cute!

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.

    Cool wedding beauty ideas

    It’s time for bridal beauty to loosen up. Hair doesn’t have to be tightly wound, makeup perfectly contoured, and nails French manicured (on this last point, really, please don’t). You can, in fact, look gorgeously and timelessly cool at your wedding. Here’s how.
