Michelle Obama Nail Polish: Thousands Search for 'Vogue' Nail Polish From 'Artistic Color Gloss'

September 9, 2012|3:34 pm

Michelle Obama's nail polish has started a trend following its high profile showing at the Democratic National Convention 2012.

The First Lady gave her speech on the opening evening of the Democratic Convention, and gave an inspiring account of her husband. However, her dress and her nail polish have since received a lot of attention from fashion fans worldwide.

Following her speech thousands have taken to search engines searching for what nail shade she was wearing.

The Insider has reported that the grey-silver shade is called "Vogue" and is from a gel collection called "Artistic Color Gloss."

The shade has immediately become a bestseller with thousands attempting to find stocks of the nail polish to try it for themselves.

Numerous fashion experts have said that retailers are likely to sell out of the product in the coming days because of Michelle Obama's popularity and her huge influence on what people want to wear and dress up in.

It was no surprise when Michelle Obama's dress immediately became a trend search on the night of her speech. Numerous times of the past few years when the First Lady has donned a new dress thousands have taken to online searching to find out what she is wearing and attempting to see where they can get their hands on the same or a similar style design.

However, not many had expected the nail polish to get so much attention this time around, and her DNC speech has seemingly started a new fashion trend among her fans.

Michelle Obama's speech on the first night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., was more political than usual for a first lady. While never mentioning Mitt Romney by name, she contrasted President Barack Obama's life with that of Romney's while echoing many Obama campaign themes.

Two themes from the speech came directly from the campaign's talking points that have been used since Romney became the Republican nominee. The first is that Romney, as a man of wealth and privilege, does not understand the concerns of middle-class voters. The speech highlighted Barack Obama's middle-class upbringing to contrast with Romney, who grew up the son of an auto company executive and Michigan governor.

Michelle Obama talked about Barack Obama picking her up in a rusted out car when they first dated. His "proudest possession was a coffee table he'd found in a dumpster" and his "only pair of decent shoes was a half size too small."

"Barack and I were both raised by families who didn't have much in the way of money or material possessions," she said.

The second campaign talking point reflected in the speech is that Romney would, as president, further "rig the system" in favor of the wealthy.

"We learned about honesty and integrity -- that the truth matters, that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules, and success doesn't count unless you earn it fair and square," Michelle Obama said.

She added, "Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it, and he wants everyone in this country to have that same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we're from, or what we look like, or who we love. He believes that when you've worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed."
