Mad Men Nail Polish
Posted by Natasha Bailie at 16:44
You all know by now I have had Mad Men fever since the show started in 2007. I spread the word wherever I go and I have occasionally been known to stop talking to someone who has not seen the show. I mean it is the best thing since sliced bread for gawds sake!
Since the show began the fever of Mad Men has been spreading like a wild fire and I am here to announce it has now reached epidemic proportions. With a Barbie doll range, a QVC fashion line, a Banana Republic inspired collection Janie Bryant is the queen of multi tasking and branding.
Janie Bryant is the costume designer behind Mad Men and she is fast becoming the spokesperson for the show. Bryant is the woman who we depend upon to create and ensure Mad Men is authentic and as accuarte as possible to the era and characters. If this seasons catwalk trends are anything to go by, Janie is now the woman we depend on to inspire our very own wardrobes. Everyone wants a piece of Mad Men! Who can argue with Louis Vuitton and Prada?
Janie Bryant somehow seems to still find time on her hands as she has collaboarated with the nail polish brand Nailtini to create a collection of four limited edition nail shades inspired by Mad Men. Bryant says she was inspired by the fabrics of the era, velvet, satins, and lamé. The fabrics that go in to make a glamorous cocktail dress. The colours will be; Bourbon Satin, French 75, Deauville and Stinger. The shades will include browns, golds, a platinum and an iridescent.
The bad news is these shades will only be available in the US. Although I have heard on the grapevine nail polish brand; Essie are thinking of producing a Mad Men collection? Yet to be confirmed, but if you know anything please tell me!
