“I think I could be the voice of my generation. Or… a voice. Of a generation.” It’s safe to say that no show has made more of an impact on pop culture in recent history than HBO’s Girls. Not since Carrie Bradshaw appeared on our TV screens in her six inch Manolos has a show been more scrutinized for its cultural influence.
This past January, nail guru Deborah Lippmann released a polish collection inspired by the four very different girls on the hit show. Lippmann has given fans an opportunity to try on each personality for themselves. Hannah is a muddy hunter green, slightly weird and definitely unique, just like Lena Dunham herself. Marnie is a classic, safe baby pink. Pretty, prissy and proper… simply Marnie. Shoshanna is a bright, refreshing lavender. Trendy and feminine, it’s right on point. Jessa is a deep, seductive burgundy. Dark and sexy, it perfectly encompasses the character’s boho mystique.
This line of polish got us thinking… What if we had to imagine each character beauty cabinet? Take a look and find which one would fit better your personality, maybe you will find a bit of Shosh in you….
