My friend and colleague, Philadelphia Wedding associate photo editor Jess Hawkes, has a thing for nail polish.

She seems to come into the office with a different color on every other day, plans what polish she’ll wear with certain outfits the way others might shoes, is the only person I know who actually has the patience to apply that caviar nail stuff instead of just ooh-ing and ahh-ing at how cool it’d be to play with in theory, and long before it became, like, an actual thing, I was asking her if she had hit her head in the middle of painting her nails, because she kept showing up with her ring finger painted a different color than all the others.

This week, however, she’s come in with something new: a little nail-polishy token of her love for her fiance Scott! (Pictured, obv.) They’re tying the knot this fall in what is sure to be a seriously fabulous affair, and it seems Jess just felt like celebrating that the last time she went into Rittenhouse Manicure & Spa. She chose a gel polish in Princess Tiara and asked her manicurist to freehand a little bit with the skinny French-white brush: Voila! Super cute.

No word on what color she plans to wear on the Big Day. It’s a decision that will undoubtedly require as much time as the Dress.

Any of you have fun little tricks like this or other ways you work in a playful little nod to your dude?
