Is Alexa Chung Starting A New Nail Trend?

Alexa Chung is basically the unofficial poster child for Britain, a fact that's perhaps best evidenced by her appearance at Friday night's launch of the British Airways and VisitBritain's The Big British Invite pop-up event. Channeling true royalty, she opted for a skirt suit, which she complemented by indulging in the of-the-moment brooch trend. Basically, she showcased the exact understated elegance we've come to expect from her.
But, in case you've forgotten, on top of repping Britain on the regular, Alexa is also the face that launched an 870+ waiting list with leather-embellished nails. And while we think she looks plenty pretty, here, we can't help but notice that her nails are the same golden hue as her suit. Is our favorite Brit babe kick-starting a matchy-matchy nail trend? And if so, are you on board? (Daily Mail)
