It just so happens that two of our favorite creative minds—Pierre Hardy and François Nars—share a mastery of color theory. Cult beauty brand NARS is known for its colors above all else (orgasm, anyone?), while shoe and accessory designer Pierre Hardy is always experimenting with unexpected juxtapositions. So when we heard that they’d teamed up to create a line of nail polishes and blushes inspired by Hardy’s Spring 2013 collection, our first thought was, Those colors are going to be divine.
Well, the wait is over. You can now shop the Pierre Hardy x NARS collection at Barneys New York, and the colors are, in fact, divine. The nail polishes come in modern pairings, while the blushes sport Hardy’s signature cube print in gleaming gold. They’re almost too pretty to use. (Almost.)
“Makeup and shoes have more in common than I first thought,” Hardy recently told Allure. “They both give you the ability to alter your appearance, communicate something, and change the way you carry yourself.”
We think that when your toes, fingers, visage and shoes are in perfect synchronicity, you communicate something decidedly chic. Go ahead: mix and match to your heart’s content. We even made a Pierre Hardy x NARS color chart to get you started…
