Found It! Michelle Obama's Gray Nail Polish

Michelle Obama at the DNC
After Tuesday night's Democratic National Convention speech, first lady Michelle Obama set Twitter on fire with her lavender/gray nails, with people trying to guess which shade and brand she was wearing. Michelle Obama's nails were like an accessory to her simple Tracy Reese/J. Crew ensemble.

A Wall Street Journal reporter has confirmed that the nail polish is Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Color Gel in "Vogue." Artistic Nail Design's U.S. headquarters has been flooded with requests from salons interested in stocking this color. They told Yahoo Shine, "we've seen a 90% increase in calls for this color alone. We currently have around 1,000 bottles in stock and will be getting stock up to at least 5,000 to prepare for the influx of order that we are receiving."

Mad frenzy to locate her nail polish??? Sick of being played like this. This is not a positive portrayal of women. We do have brains, and I can guarentee there was no mad frenzy to locate her "shade of gray" nail polish. Pleeezzz!

Ugly nails -- Ugly dress - worst dressed prize winner, beginning with that hideous dress she wore for Obama's inauguration.   And, her arms may be toned, but she has a big ****.  Let's get on with some real fashion about someone we care about.

Get a grip!  This is important!  What is important is that we need to get back to God and the principles that our great nation was founded on.   See the movie "Monumental:  In Search of America's Treasure" and "The Last Ounce of Courage" for how and why our country is so exceptional and blessed by God and how in this present day we are losing our freedoms one by one and most people aren't even aware of it.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
