By now you’ve probably heard about Michelle Obama’s inspiring, tear-jerking, “mom-in-chief” speech at the DNC last night and ooh’ed and aah’ed over her pink Tracy Reese/J.Crew ensemble. But until a few minutes ago, there was one style mystery that no one had yet solved: What color is that nail polish she’s wearing?
Many sites speculated what the color might be, other sites told you how to get the look, but until now, no one knew for sure what the color was. OPI even sent out a press release guessing that the color might be “I Don’t Give a Rotterdam” from the brand’s summer Holland collection. But it wasn’t OPI. Are you ready to find out?
It’s Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Color Gel in “Vogue.” MSNBC did some digging and announced it mere minutes ago. Thank you, Twitter, for relaying it to those of us who don’t have TV’s in our office. A gel color. Of course! Obviously the FLOTUS wouldn’t want to have to worry about chips. Remember that whole Condi lipstick controversy? God forbid Mrs. O chips her mani. We’d never hear the end of it.
Anyway, congrats Artistic Colour! You’re going to be flooded with requests by salons, we’re betting.
Update: We’ve reached out to Artistic Colour to confirm that they are indeed the source of the nail color.
Update 9/6/12: The company confirmed to us via email that it is their “Vogue” on the FLOTUS’ tips.
