the beatles x km x nail polish

I like to make lists. Sometimes, they make sense (like "groceries" and "things to do this week"). Most of the time, they reflect the chaos in my head. While in the shower this week, I came up with a list heading, "Names of Nail Polish Colors Inspired by the Beatles." Here's the evidence of my work.

I know I'm missing a few songs that are totally worthy - "Eleanor Rigby" as a pale purple-grey, "Back in the U.S.S.R." as a metallic blue, "Blackbird" as the classic matte black, "Helter Skelter" as a crackle!!! I feel like this list could go on forever. Feel free to add your suggestions and maybe I will add another section of swatches to this.



  1. So creative! Here Comes the Sun as a sheer creamy gold?

  2. Across the Universe is a real Deborah Lippman polish and it is MY FAVORITE in the entire world! Here's a nail blog on it:

    Love your blog!

  3. hahah this cracked me up!! :) It's good!

    You should copyright em'. maybe thats how OPI comes out with their names too!!

    oh yea, that is a treehouse which was a pop-up restaurant for a few months. Yea it definitely up a level to my childhood treehouse.

  4. You have such great style! I'm so glad I ran into you yesterday. I posted your photos this morning.

  5. Interesting idea :) I like your choices so far. I kinda picture Hello Goodbye as a bronze with flecks/sparkles in it, since it's upbeat, happy and catchy!
