Black For A Day

Black nail polish. I think it's either you love it, or you hate it. Here's my take.....

I LOVE it, for a day. That's it. A planned day where your wearing your little black dress, or some type of ensemble that has a huge black factor. And a black mani/pedi is only good for a very short time. As soon as it loses it's shine, or chips, it looks so trashy. I know this because my toes are black right now, and I have been trapped in sneakers for days now because an old black pedi, is a busted black pedi. I have been telling myself that I am going to paint them every night, to no avail. I'm hoping for tomorrow night. I have my own foot bath, and all of these pedi supplies that were a gift to me from a friend. It's just not the same when you have to do it yourself. If I happen to see my brother while my toes are black, he reminds me of how much he hates them. Robert called me freaky when I did my fingers and toes black too, so I'm thinking maybe men aren't a big fan of black nails. But as I said, if you know your wearing black, pair your outfit with a black mani/pedi, and some black strappy heals, and it looks beautiful...for a day.

Black Polish - not for me - even with an all black outfit. Too dark & dreary. And dare I say - for girls a lot younger than I am!!!

I am also not a big fan of Goth - so maybe that is part of it.

Now I love the black dress and any other piece of black clothing - just not for my nails.

Glad you will at least wear the sneaker!!! There is a great e-mail about having your toes out and all the do's and don'ts - If I find it I will repost.
