Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Cherbaudes’ {wine} + Christian Louboutin Mani

What better way to kick-off the first week of the rest of your life than with the shoes, the nails, and the wine

‘Louboutin Manicure’

Black nail polish. Red “underneath,” like the signature red soles on Christian Louboutin’s shoes.

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru “Les Cherbaudes’

Burgundy.

Christian Louboutin ‘Very Prive’

Your nails have to be fairly long for the red to show at all, so you might look a little like the Mistress of the Dark with long black talons, but if Adele can pull it off…Wait.

Multi-time Grammy winner, now Oscar winner for her song Skyfall for the James Bond movie, new Mom and a voice that earns more money each day than you do in an entire year? Obvs Adele can pull off whatever the hell she wants. We mortals have to plan outfit and occasion pretty appropriately to pull this off.

Zoya ‘Raven’ and Sephora by OPI ‘And a Cherry on Top’

Paint one coat of white polish as a base on the underside of your nails before adding two coats of red so the color stands out (especially with this particular shade of red, which is slightly sheer).

Foie Gras and Black Truffle Pasta

And when your nails are completely dry, make the New York Times’ Foie Gras and Black Truffle Pasta. With Fourrier it is, like Louboutins, a perfect, luxurious pair. If you serve the pasta on red lacquer plates, I will bow down to you. [photo: New York Times]

    I kind of love this so much it hurts. Not sure my nails will ever get long enough though. And wait, you’re a size 36???

      catty: i never in a million years thought my nails would get long enough either! up until about a year and a half ago, i bit them SO MUCH – all the way down, to the point they would bleed! so gross. but then i just stopped and started taking biotin… just a little vitamin that supposedly helps strengthen hair and nails. it works!

    I love the mani pairings that you do. Maybe create a mani tag?

      i have them all tagged under “wine dine design” … http://www.thedeliciouslife.com/tag/wine-dine-design/

      but i’ll add “mani,” too just so i can give myself the excuse to post a mani sans wine (though why would i do that in the first place?! :) )
