Twinsie Tuesday | Inspired by a Celebrity

Sheer pastel polish was all over this year's Golden Globe red carpet.  One of my favorite looks was Amy Adams, who paired her lilac Versace Grecian one shoulder with diamonds and Deborah Lippmann Chantilly Lace from the Spring 2015 Whisper Collection.  Take a look.

Needing to get on board with this nail trend, I knew that I wanted to use Amy Adams as my celebrity inspiration for this week's Twinsie Tuesday prompt.  While Deborah Lippmann topped over Amy Adams's Chantilly Lace with Bring on the Bling, a diamond shimmer, I chose to go with just showcasing the main color (also because I don't own Bring on the Bling, but honestly, I didn't want to mess with the simple beauty of Chantilly Lace).  

Chantilly Lace is powdery pink jelly with a delicate iridescent shimmer running throughout.  The polish is very sheer but buildable; my mani looks considerably more sheer than Amy Adams's and my guess is because I used 4 coats for this mani (although it looked basically identical at 3, I just needed to cover bald spots that were only noticeable in photos).

Here is Deborah Lippmann Chantilly Lace in all her beautiful, delicate glory.

The macro was the only shot I could really capture the shimmer but in real life, the iridescent glow is so much more apparent.  Like I said before, Chantilly Lace is a real beauty and the gem in any spring wardrobe.

You can purchase Chantilly Lace and the rest of the Whisper Collection at deborahlippmann.com, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, and Sephora.
