There are so many crazy things going on in the world of nail polish and even though I don’t usually post about nail trends, I wanted to share a few with you that I would wear.
Back in the 80s when acrylic nails first became popular (yes, I really am that old), we used to wear them long and air-brushed with any mad assortment of designs. Once I started nursing, I kind of let the nails go and although they looked nice, I didn’t spend much time on them. Seemed there was no point when I couldn’t wear polish.
Luckily for me, my role has changed and for about the last 2-3 months I have been making it a point to go get a manicure on a regular basis. Sometimes I do “normal” colours that are completely appropriate for work but I find myself gravitating to the slightly more extreme styles more often than not. Blue, green sparkle and now the neutral with black tips!
I just couldn’t resist. I’ve seen it around the blogosphere and I wanted it.
In the 24 hours that I have had my nails done this way, I have had at least 5 people comment on how much they like my nails. I’m almost wondering if that is just conservative Ballarat way of saying, “That’s a bit much”?Or if they really do like them.
If I didn’t keep forgetting how great my nails look right now I would really be getting paranoid!
p.s. I now know why everyone on the nail blogs show off their nails with their fingers bent in…my hands are looking OLD! ACK!!
Would you wear this nail look? Is this nail look too much for a “woman my age”?
