Outdoors, open shade

Hello, lovely readers, how are you doing today?
Today's nails and outfit were planned around my most recent shoe acquisition.  I went shopping with a friend who needed brown shoes to go with a brown dress for a vocal competition (and let's not talk about how the vocal competition went, I'm still annoyed...) and I spotted this pair of bright pink pumps in my size and they just had to come home with me.

I decided to wear the shoes and matching nails out shopping with the Boyfriend.  The spring weather here has been pleasantly breezy and sunny and generally pleasant.  I'm not too eager for the summer to start, although I would like it very much if the trees stopped blooming so aggressively.  So this was my very simple outfit.  I'm wearing...
Sweater: Forever21
Skirt: Handmade by moi
Petticoat: Evangeline's
Shoes: Nicole's Shoes



I compared my nail polish swatch wheel with my shoes, and thought that Color Club Warhol from the Poptastic collection looked like the closest match.  It turns out that the polish is much more neon than the shoes, so I toned it down with a glass-flecked gradient to darken the color some.

Indoors, compact fluorescent
I used my usual basecoat, 3 coats of Color Club Warhol, and then used a sponge to create a gradient on the tips with Sinful Colors Forget Now.  That plus the usual NYC topcoat and my matchy nails were ready to go.

Do you match your nails with your outfit?  What do you choose to match?
