It's not quite cherry, and it's certainly far from fire engine, but once you see it, there's no mistaking it.
I’m talking about Georgia Red of course; the real color of the Bulldog Nation.
With commencement wrapping up last week for all those graduating seniors, there’s almost no better time to don the old red and black (with the exception of our famous Saturday’s Between the Hedges) and get one last good wear out of the school spirit before heading off to try your hand in the world.
And leading handshake-first is this week’s Fashionista, with her bright, red manicured nails in the perfect shade of her now-alma mater. Catching her flitting around the Arch, it wasn’t her daring to walk underneath them that caught my attention, but the glimpse of colored nails swinging at her sides. Not only are they all UGA-perfect, but with the still-in-the-seventies temps that Athens is currently experiencing, they bring bright holiday cheer that is sorely lacking in the air.
My favorite red shades to imitate her bold nails come from Chanel’s Holiday Le Vernis Nail Colour, OPI Classic Red, and Revlon Red Nail Enamel. Don’t be fooled by the color names though, these shades are all 100% Georgia Girl approved because even if the weather isn't playing nice, you don't have to resort to being naughty for the Christmas spirit; there's plenty of Georgia Red to get even Scrooge in the holiday mood (and especially all the graduates).
