“I love copying patterns from nature,” says Tracylee, who created the tortoiseshell nails for the Rodarte Spring 2014 runway show, as well as this opalescent look. “The hardest part was finding just the correct blue undertone.” She settled on Treat Collection Nail Polish in Mint Julep, then swiped on a few coats of OPI Nail Lacquer in Rose of Light, an iridescent glitter that imparts a rainbow-flecked effect. According to folklore, wearing opal helps one find true love. Color us smitten.
