|Michelle Obama at the podium of the 2012 Democratic National Convention|
I LOVE that Michelle Obama did not go boring with her nails while giving a big speech at the Democratic National Convention last night. No neutral invisible shade here! She picked an on-trend color that could be SEEN on camera. In fact, people are quite clamoring to figure out the name of that lovely blue-grey. I have not found a successful ID anywhere. I'm going to guess it's Essie's Cocktail Bling.
What do you think it is? You might have to click on the image to enlarge it in order to get a good look. Do you like her color choice?
Update: I contacted the Obama campaign (yes, that's right, MFM is doing REAL REPORTING!) and confirmed that the First Lady is actually wearing a gel manicure. It is Artistic Nail Design's Artistic Colour Gloss soak-off gel in "Vogue".

Vogue looks like a medium grey-toned purple. I think BeachGal's comment is probably right, and what we see in photos and on camera is distorted by the intense colored lighting. So, if you want the look you think you see, a soft, greyish blue, then I'd still go with Essie's Cocktail Bling.
*Let's pause to acknowledge the fact that I haven't posted in quite a while! I just needed a bit of a break, but I'm going to try and get back in the swing of things now. Thanks for reading!
