Let's talk nail polish



What's the deal with nail polish? I realize that the different colors that come out every year are just like the different fashion trends and it is your choice to pick and choose what works for you. Listen, I would never wear a harem pant just like I'd never wear lime green nail polish. But that's my personal style, nothing against either!
It dawned on me lately that there might be an "age appropriate" issue with some of these colors though. I wore this teal color that I found at Urban Outfitters for a few days and asked around. Most girls said the same thing. They would wear this on their toes, but not there hands.....followed by, but it looks great on you! haaa
Okay, is there age appropriate issues with nail polish? Am I dressing too young for a 31 year old (soon to be!) mother of 2 if I rock out these bright summer colored nails? Am I just being bold? Or is it personal choice?
I never feel this way in the fall/winter. I love wearing black, dark purple, navy, maroon, and forest green during these months and NEVER feel like I'm styled too young or too old. What do you guys think?

Maybe at some point some people get too old for certain bright/bold colors, but I definitely don't think you're too old for them! To me it's more a personal choice, and it's about what you feel comfortable with. I think if you don't feel weird wearing a color, that probably means you can still pull it off. I think we can all tell you have a great sense of style from reading your blog, so keep doing what you're doing!

Thanks for the kind words Cassi! Sometimes it's hard to gage how long to be following some of these color trends!

I think as long as they're short, it's fun and funky!

girls got to get color somewhere. I don't necessarily want to wear a bright color as a shirt or dress but I feel like a bold (and removable nailpolish) can make a neutral outfit less blah. My personal preference is darker colors bordering on almost black. Yoga get this blue by OPI is my favorite. I agree with bellajackson nails must be short!

I agree ladies! Can you imagine long turquoise nails?! ahhhh! ;)

It's totally a preference thing. Some people (namly, us) have confidence and take risks with fashion and others simply don't. Don't worry, I have every color of the rainbow nailpolish and wear it all proudly!

Hey there! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed
to ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours require a massive
amount work? I'm brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to
start a blog so I can easily share my experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new
aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
