Oscar de la Renta Creates Nail Polish To Match His Ready-To-Wear Line

As if his gorgeous gowns weren't enough, Oscar de la Renta has now lent his signature touch to a line of nail polishes. He's one of many designers to venture into the world of nail art, but we love that he's stuck to three distinct colors rather than a whole line. The bright, velvety red is a natural winner, the dark purple has got us yearning for colder temps, and the delicate blue looks like it would be perfect in this Elizabeth Olsen editorial.
The colors are a match for the brand's fall '12 ready-to-wear show, and the polish is aptly titled "The Runway Collection." The colors are a statement about Oscar's well-documented love of deep jewel tones, and the light blue is meant to echo its namesake, Larimar — a rare stone found only in the designer's native Dominican Republic.
