I’ve been joking around for a couple weeks about matching my inks to my nail polish colors and I thought it would make an amusing Fashionable Friday post. All my friends are dizzy over the reddish purple sparkle of polishes like Darling Diva Ringer and Cirque Coronation so I thought I might find some coordinating supplies.

Do you match your inks to your pen? Your pen to your notebook? All of the above to your outfit or nail polish?

YES YES YES! I mean. My what a lovely collection you have curated.
OMG this is hilarious! I match my ink to my pen, but this takes it to a whole new level. I have to go check all my polishes (another collection besides pens and inks) and see if I can do one of these with a favorite color.
I actually have organic studio inside my purple Lamy Al-Star right at this moment (inked it last night…when I first wrote with it, the first thing that popped out is how much the dusty purple reminds me of a Gringnasco Knit yarn in plum). Even though I like the idea (and have enough polish to do the matching) but I guess I am more into doing that with lip colors, which I wore way more often…
I am a chemist. Nail polish doesn’t stay on but, maybe I can match it to my toenail polish! I had to order the Kaweco Art Sport from Fontoplumo after seeing this, though! You have such well thought out posts!
Great idea for a post!
My color at last! I know how partial you are to greens of all shades but I love the lavenders, lilacs, violets, irises, wisterias and every shade in between. I just ordered the Iroshizuku Murasaki ink that I’ve wanted to try for ages. Now you’ve curated a lot more purple items to put on my wish list.
Wow! Great collection you put together there Ana. Maybe I should start wearing nail polish.
I’m a guy, but I paint my toenails, so how can I write with my feet . . . I’ll need to ponder.
I’m another pen/ink fan who’s also a nail polish collector! There’s more of us than I thought, evidently.
Ah, I want all of it. Though this does remind me of “Purple People Eaters”… 🙂
Hahaha, I actually DO sometimes match my nail polish to my pen or my ink. But it’s mostly because I like to collect things in my favorite colors – like neon yellow!
