Is Whitney Wearing Lancome’s Indigo Paris Nail Polish?

Published in: Just For Fun, Nails, News


Fellow nail polish nerds, did any of y’all spy Whitney’s blue nails on last night’s episode of The City? I am CONVINCED my girl Whit was rocking Lancome’s Indigo Paris, a favorite of mine for fall.



Can I reality TV dish with you for a sec?

It’s about The Hills and The City, two of MTV’s most progressive and enlightening programs, LOL!

LOVE The City, but I barely made it through five minute of The Hills before I had to look away.

I can’t suspend disbelief anymore when it comes to the Kristin/Justin Bobby/Audrina love triangle. It just feels kinda … fake, like a really bad counterfeit purse, ugh!


That, and I think my Speidi cup hath runneth over. I can’t take those two anymore. They made me choke on a meatball — that’s how angry I was.

After coughing it up (it even caught air and launched across the room), I said a prayer of thanks and pledged to live a Speidi-free lifestyle from now on.

Thank goodness The City was actually pretty entertaining. Whit’s fabulous blue nails were hawt! ๐Ÿ™‚

They’re visible toward the end of the episode. Whitney and her new frenemy/roommate, Roxy, are sitting at work, discussing the previous day’s photo shoot.


I could totally be wrong, but isn’t her polish a dead ringer for Lancome’s Indigo Paris ($18)?

The City makes me ache for New York. I went a few years ago, just for fun over Thanksgiving with El Hub. I gotta hand it to those native New Yorkers. They sure are stylish. Not once do I recall seeing any sleeveless fleece jacket/khaki pants/Croc shoes combos, the unisex staple uniform of Marin County.

Someday I’ll make it back…

Back to reality! How was your day? What was the BEST thing that happened to you today? Mine was finding my makeup brushes. It took me a while to find the right box. It was like reuniting with old friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

    beautiful color!! i just came back from eating sushi with a friend ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. twotwo says:

    I love the nail polish design. It’s so fierce.

  3. pinksoysauce says:

    Wow, is the polish inside the bear? (It is a bear, right?) That’s such cool packaging! I’ve only seen Lancome’s regular polish bottles so this is new news for me.

  4. Shiny says:

    After being out of country for 3 months I ate 16 pieces of veggie sushi. Fantastic.

    Also the polish bear is too cute.

  5. Kaycee says:

    “I think my speidi cup hath runneth over” I am so with you on that one. It’s funny that you brought this up because when LC was still on the Hills I used to try and see what color was on her nails by stopping and rewinding the DVR lol! totally geeky lol.

    Ugh, that is the reason why I hate “reality” television–things seem forced and they’re edited to hell. Not to mention all the catty drama. I have enough drama in my life, why should I witness more?

    Best thing? Cleaning all my clothes. As much as I hate laundry, I had nothing to wear today but a dress! It feels so good knowing all my jeans and my long-sleeve shirts are clean. It’s gotten cold here!

    The other thing that ranks up there in best thing happened was Zena snuggled into a donut shape in between my pillows so when I walked in, her head popped out of the crack. It was so cute.

    I’d totally bring my makeup brushes with me in my overnighter bag. I would hate them to be all scrunched and stuff and forget which box I put them in!

    On another note, I’m free from the Seventh Ring of School Hell for a good week or two. Freedom!!!

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      Congrats on making it through! Enjoy the week or two you have to breathe and relax a little.

      Don’t you love those moments when your pet is too darn adorable? They totally make up for the times they’re naughty!

    Gorgeous shade of blue, I think I will whip out OPI’s Russian Navy out next in a few days. The best thing about today is that I actually worked on my portfolio for a few hours.

  8. Tiffany says:

    I was totally into the city and totally bored by the hills as well. the best thing that happened to me yesterday was that my 3 hour class was only an hour long! it was like being given the gift of extra time, lol!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be able to watch it anymore. Remember when it first started and was really interesting (before Heidi became Spencer’s pawn)?!? Those days are long gone.

      Holy crap, I don’t think I could sit though a three hour class. Is the subject interesting, at least?

  9. YadiQ says:

    hi karen

    co;ngrats on your move!

    i just came back from tampa and had a really fun time with my friend and her 2 kids who are both my god children!

    today was simply uneventful as my days were more fun while i was in tampa

    i cannot stand speidi so i am with you on that

    you should totally take a trip to NYC i promise to keep you busy and you will be a “native” new yorker in no time lol !

    i think you’d fit right in !

    • Karen says:

      Hi YadiQ,

      If/when I visit I promise to leave the sleeveless fleece/kahkis at home, ha ha ha!

      YAY for trips that combine family time with fun time. Was the weather warm?

      I’m so glad the move is over, you don’t even know. There’s still a ton to do but at least the hard stuff is over.

  10. You know, I noticed her nails and thought “ooh that’s gorg” but then moved on to the drama. I used to like the Hills when Lauren was on, but its really not the same without her. It felt like she was the only one on the show with real emotion. You are totally right…its all so fake now.

      Hi Kajal Couture,

      I liked The Hills with LC too. I felt like there was somebody to root for, ya know? Now I can’t really get behind anybody in the show.

  11. Dao says:

    Ooh, that’s a beautiful color! I’m into blue nail polishes atm ๐Ÿ™‚ I went to NY some couple of years ago during summer and people rocked boho chic hardcore. It was a stark contrast to my ‘hood and that was awesome!

  12. Lindsay says:

    That also looks like Essie’s Aruba Blue, another beautiful vibrant blue!

  13. Anh says:

    I fast forwarded all the parts of the Hills with Speidi. There’s no real drama now that they are married. Borrrrring.

    Also, Stacie the bartender is now all of a sudden Kristin’s best friend? I don’t know when or how that happened?

    The best thing that happened to be today was finding out I have 5 (that’s FIVE) cavities that will cost a total of $1,047 to fill!!!!


    At least I leave for Spain on Sunday…

  15. Kelly says:

    I am still wondering why I don’t own that color!

    I’ve never watched that show, but I can safely say I loathe all those people ๐Ÿ™‚

    It was great thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. charlene says:

    we feel the same way Karen….spencer is really annoying….but u kno these shows, they gots to have the drama….I AM SO GLAD U DID THIS POST THO because i wanted to kno what the heck that colour was! ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks hon!! AND don’t u just want to knock Roxy the heck out thru ur tv screen?

  18. T says:

    Good eye Karen. I did not even notice her nails. Very pretty!

    I am in total agreement with you on the whole Kristin/Justin Bobby/Audrina thing. And as for Speidi, if they’re going to stage it, at least make it interesting. They had to bring in a little 7 year old boy to change things up?

    As for Olivia, ugh, she’s a character huh? I loved how hilarious she looked when she was dealing with the fake purse dealer. Can you make it more obvious?

  19. Christy says:

    Well, considering you wrote this yesterday, the best thing was stumbling upon the grand opening of Sephora at one of my favorite malls. I had no idea they’d be opening up randomly on a Wednesday, making me oh so very very happy with a free tote bag.

    Congrats on finding your brushes! It took me about a week to find mine after I moved. Mind you, I also had a tenant for 4 days when the condo I bought was supposed to be empty. …that’s a very very long story…

    OMG, The Hills is turning out into the most plastic show ever. Audrina did have her ‘breakup’ with Justin Bobby, so she should get over it and let Kristin & JB do whatever they want. It’s obvious she is not over him, girl needs to let him go. Now, as for Kristin, if she really wanted to be friends with Audrina, going out with her ex was a bad idea no matter what. It looks like Kristin wants JB more than anything.

    hey Karen! just wanted to say.. I totally know what you mean about loving NY! even though the Bay Area is great (im from around San Jose) theres just something about the Big Apple that keeps making me want to go back ๐Ÿ™‚

    and agreed about the horror that is speidi, reminds me of a quote i just read (tabloids are my guilty pleasure) by Kristin on introducing them to each other: “I want to apologize to everybody… I had no idea what it would turn into” LOL!

  21. That actually look like the same shade. Hope moving is going along well with you. Is Tabs helping? Hehe

  22. Tiffany says:

    Yah, nothing about the hills is fresh anymore. Do any of these people even have jobs? I like the city because they show a lot of fashion stuff.

    What’s funny is that I’m going to school for psychology, and we all know that people cannot sustain attention for 3 hours, yet all our classes are that long. What the heck? We should pay attention to our own research results! And the topic is SO not interesting – it’s a statistics class on item response theory. YAWN!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      Aww, I kinda liked stats! It was the only math-related class I kicked booty in!

      Do they at least give you a stretch break? Geez I’d be tempted to fool around!

  23. Kate & Zena says:


    Oh yes, I’m very happy I’m out of that circle for a little bit. Midterms are in two weeks and that means more essays. All of my classes this year seem to be doing essays for midterms! Icky!

    Zena isn’t ever really “naughty.” She definitely is irritating at times but she’s ironically not very naughty. She’s a bit of misnomer. One thinks “terrier” and envision a dog that gets into a lot of trouble but Zena doesn’t get into much.

    Zena’s Halloween costume came in today and thank goodness it did. It needs a little nip and tuck as it’s a teeny bit big in places on her. I’m going to detach the hood also and cut out some ear holes for her ears and add ribbon on each side so it can be secured under her chin. She apparently has a long neck as the hood doesn’t fit on her head attached to the rest of the costume! She has that problem with anything with a hood.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      Cute, cute! Did you ever get your camera fixed? I want to see a picture.

      I spied a very cute business tie costume thingy at Targhay the other day. I think I might get it for Tabs. El Hub is 100% against animals in costume (whatever, he’s nuts), so I’m gonna have to buy it on the ‘low. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Tiffany says:

    Hey Karen! I like doing stats, but not sitting in stats class, lol. We get lime a 15 minute break to stretch and try to reset our brains!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      Yeah, I hear ya. Those long classes are killer!

      You know what trips me out? The fact that colleges have internet and people can go online during class (that’s what I’d do if I was in a three-hour class, I can’t lie!).

      When I graduated in 1998 (yikes) being high tech meant you carried a pager.

  25. Kate & Zena says:


    The digital is, well, toast. It takes some veeeeeeeeeery wonky pictures now. So, I’m going to get some 35 mm film for my film camera and take some pictures after I alter the costume. I think I have enough black thread, but I want to get some black ribbon that matches so it doesn’t appear that the hood was taken off and shortened to fit her head. All I have is navy blue satin ribbon.

    Did I show you the one I got her? It’s the Lil’ Stinker costume here: Lil’ Stinker Costume

    We (my family) were like your husband until we got Zena that we thought seriously about sweaters and costumes. We had a horse jacket for my greyhound for the winter but that was it (doggy jackets don’t come in greyhound size). Zena is small enough and likes sweaters and jackets as they keep her warm in fall and winter. We got her the costume because it suited her so well and she has the silly yet confident personality to pull of a costume. My other dogs had personality, but not a silly enough one for a costume like Zena. It takes the right kind of dog or cat.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      SERIOUSLY, she’s gonna look adorable in that. AWWWW!

      I didn’t know you had a greyhound. Did I ever tell you that I want to adopt a retired racing greyhound? Tabs has thrown a monkey wrench into the picture (I’m not sure if he’s gonna be down for a doggy bro/sis), but maybe someday.

  26. Kate & Zena says:


    I had my greyhound, Porsche, for a long time. We actually adopted her from a “doggie psychologist” after we had to give my lab away. He’d been trying to find the right home for her (she generated a lot of interest like Zena) and he told my mom to take Porsche home because, “You’re the right family for Porsche. You’re dog people” (his words, not my mom’s). Porsche had a nipping problem and been to three other homes but he trained it out and gave her to us. I don’t think we paid for her. We had her until she was 11–she was 4 when we adopted her. I used to use her as a pillow when I wasn’t feeling well. We used to take Porsche down to the beach when it was nice out and let her run for an entire half an hour. She was trained to run off at the word, “go!” and come back when we called her name accompanied by a whistle. We had to give her her day (aka she was put down) because she was old and had cancer in her paw so she was walking on three legs. I was 12 when she went to Pet Heaven.

    The greatest thing about a greyhound though? They’ve got two speeds–45 mph (fastest dog in the world) and 0. They will happily spend all day sleeping on the couch as long as they get a good run. They’re the quintessential couch potato!

    I think I remember you telling me you wanted one. Tabs seems like the kind of kitty that would tolerate a couch potato dog. You might want to consider him meeting some dogs in neutral territory like a park or something (kitty leashes exist for a reason).

    Sorry if I made you reach for the Kleenex box relating Porsche’s story. She was my childhood doggy and I tend to gush about her. Kinda like I gush about Zena, except Zena is everyday and Porsche is when I talk about her or miss her. I remember her as tall as a horse as I was six when I first met her!

    P.S. I think the Lil’ Stinker episode is getting at least two rolls of film when it’s finished. 24 photos doesn’t seem like enough. More is better when it comes to Zena. She’s incredibly photogenic. I’ll make sure to send a few to you (a la e-mail).

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      Porsche sounds like she was an amazing dog. ๐Ÿ™‚ You are lucky to have had a special pup like that in your life.

      And I’d love to see Zena’s Halloween photos! Please send ’em.

  27. Tiffany says:

    oh yeah, I am totally guilty of playing on my iphone during class. checking email, twitter, etc. to entertain myself!

  28. I’m going to find one tat looks close to this color!! so much FUN
