It would be difficult to replicate the sheer coolness of Priyanka Chopra sitting poolside in a pair of jumbo sunnies and a polka-dotted cover-up, but it’s her deliciously summery ballet slipper manicure that you can imitate (and, very easily, at that). That is especially amazing about the hue is not only that it goes with everything, or that it fits perfectly with sun-kissed skin, but that it is almost timeless. The soft pink hue of Priyanka Chopra’s nail is an everlasting summer fave.
It is a testament to its durability that the Kardashians and the Queen have both worn a version of the blushing shade. Further evidence is that a tube of Essie Ballet Slippers — a near-sheer erring-on-nude pale pink — is currently being sold over 800 times a day. The version of Chopra is certainly not the iconic hue of the drugstore — it is a little more translucent and mostly opaque — but it comes close enough on the color wheel to be called (basically) the same.
In a new Instagram selfie showcasing dark pink lips and side-swept beach waves, the star showed them off posing at a degree of sophistication that can only be summed up with a basic “dear lord,” Mindy Kaling’s specific terms.
A refreshing change from the complex patterns and bold colors that reigned this summer, Chopra ‘s classic mani is. The patterns of 2020 have included “glass” nails, aquarelle, celestial sculpture, tortoiseshell, and ombré hair, all of which can only be done with the aid of an professional manicurist or at least a extremely comprehensive video on YouTube.
