When both First Lady Michelle Obama and Mitt's wife Ann Romney stepped in front of the cameras last night at the end of the second presidential debate, the Internet's immediate reaction to the matching bright pink dresses was naturally, who wore it better? While we left that up for discussion, we had to zero in on the ladies' respective accessories and beauty choices to see what really differentiated their looks.

While Michelle kept it minimal with ladylike pearls, Ann spiced it up with hints of blue: a translucent, turquoise bead necklace and… lavender-blue nails. Kind of edgy for Ann, no? Or maybe not. She's thrown her hat into the less-conventional nail game before; she was seen wearing a deep eggplant shade recently in Tampa, Florida. She does love her nail polish, and seems to consider the color based on her outfit, as we saw with her matchy-matchy red nails at the Republican National Convention in August.

How are you feeling about Ann's blue nails? Is this another attempt on her part to prove she can keep up with the fashion powerhouse that is Michelle Obama? See her nail color below, and flip through the gallery for more photos of her bright polish.
