In precisely four days, my eighth grade year will become a part of my past; an absolutely wonderful time of my school life. And from June to August, my days will be full of beautiful summer memories. From sight-seeing in Istanbul to visiting museums (and shopping!) in London, I am truly anticipating my upcoming holiday. To top it off, my annual trip to India is also a prominent plan of mine, which I am now celebrating with the Thakoon x NARS summer shades.
Thakoon's Spring/Summer 2012 collection was inspired by an imaginary journey from the American West to the heart of India. Cowboy hats and golden saris made an unlikely but wonderfully eccentric combination on the runway. There was no lack of prints, with gardens of paisleys and flowers on every dress. The fantastical voyage Thakoon created for his fans translated into a highly-acclaimed NARS nail collection. Each hue was a vivid look into the inside of spice markets in India. Every color was named after a specific spice that brightens up Indian life daily: lal mirchi, amchoor, koliary and more. The designer did an incredible job of creating a corresponding nail-polish collection for his already stunning S/S '12 ensembles. So this summer, while I venture into India again, hopefully I will have a coat of Thakoon's gorgeous nail polish colors on my nails.
What are your summer plans? What do you think of this collection?
