Whatever the summer occasion, or ensemble, there's a shade of red nail polish to match. Picnics in the park or hikes by the beach? Denim cut-offs or vintage halter-dresses? Check, check, check, and check. But whatever you're doing, and whatever you're doing, you should always have a good book with you.
So, to celebrate our current manicure obsession, and one of our favorite activities, we decided to combine the two one recent afternoon in New York City's Washington Square Park. We think you'll agree that classic red nails are even more striking against beautiful, scarce editions of classic titles such as Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood and Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, which we borrowed from B & B Rare Books, in Manhattan.
Here, find your ideal shade, then add some books to your summer reading queue!
