Nails & Notes1 of 9
By Naomi Jaul
We all know that jeans and tees are a timeless combo, and that beachy hair makes sense with a maxi dress, but what about pairing up your more subtle style statements? We're referring to your perfume and your nail polish! When you think about it, they're two things that can say a whole lot about a woman—see how you can pick just the right combo, based on your personality.
Modern Minimalist2 of 9
Your style: You like looking pulled-together and pretty, but without an ounce of fuss.
Your fragrance: A green scent with notes of sweet pea and mandarin blossom, Carven Le Parfum is crisp and clean with just a hint of sweetness.
Your fingers: A gray-mauve hue is both understated and unexpected.
Quirky Yet Classic3 of 9
Your style: You're an investment dresser who sticks to sartorial favorites—but not without a touch of flair.
Your fragrance: A woody floral that's not too strong, not too soft (like Estée Lauder Modern Muse) strikes the right balance.
Your fingers: Nude is a natural fit for you, but when you're feeling more adventurous, try navy.
Vintage Glam4 of 9
Your style: You love all things Old Hollywood and think the ultimate fashion statement is a bold red lip.
Your fragrance: Thanks to a heady—but not overpowering—cocktail of sandalwood, rose and bergamot, Chanel's Les Exclusifs 1932 is a timeless choice.
Your fingers: Make your digits pop with a classic red, and why not try a 1940s-style half-moon mani while you're at it?
Sugar & Spice5 of 9
Your style: Unapologetically feminine, you revel in your playful, flirty style—but you're not as sweet as you look.
Your fragrance: You're a grown woman, and sugary smells don't do you justice—what you need is Hanae Mori's No. 8, a cherry blossom-infused concoction with a hint of spice.
Your fingers: Skip the bubblegum, Barbie pink and do a pretty peach polish, instead.
Jet-Setter Chic6 of 9
Your style: Alluring but never flashy, you know that subtle is often sexy.
Your fragrance: With its notes of jasmine and amber, Kat Burki's Tubereuse Essential Eau de Parfum should be your go-to scent.
Your fingers: While vampy red is too obvious for you, a modern twist on the classic color is simply chic.
Happy-Go-Lucky7 of 9
Your style: No slave to trends, you're a free spirit who wears whatever fits your mood on any given day.
Your fragrance: Opt for an airy scent that reflects your breezy personality, like Lancôme's La Vie Est Belle, infused with orange blossom and jasmine.
Your fingers: Give pleasant pink some personality by accenting a nail or two with something more playful.
Power Player8 of 9
Your style: You worship at the altar of Dolce & Gabbana (and don’t believe in wearing flat shoes). Friends always admire your fabulous lifestyle, and rightfully so!
Your fragrance: For a scent that matches your full-powered femininity, try the rich iris-imbued Marchesa Parfum D’Extase Body Mist.
Your fingers: You can handle the most dazzling hues, so flaunt a silver polish to put you in the spotlight.
Wild Child9 of 9
Your style: Edgy and fashion-forward, you're a risk-taker when it comes to your everyday look and fearlessly experiment with trends.
Your fragrance: Channel your inner rebel with a scent that combines an intoxicating mix of rum, spice, leather and vanilla.
Your fingers: Paint your nails a darkly daring matte black for a bold look.
