Just a Quick, Silly Question…
Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Look down at your nails right now. What color nail polish are you wearing?

I’m wearing a surfer, aqua blue. I don’t know why I chose it from the dozens of bottles I have collected over the years, and which sit in a large Rubbermaid box on a shelf in my bathroom. I’m not sure I like it, but I’ll wear it for a couple of days and see what happens. Nail color affects my mood. Or is it my mood that affects my color choice? Hmmm…

Anyway, I went to this website to see what my color choice meant: The Beauty Gypsy


Forget any tranquil associations – when worn as a nail polish, blue is not for the faint of heart. It’s fun and experimental, giving the impression that you live an adrenaline-filled lifestyle full of constant excitement. In short, blue nail polish tells the world that you are youthful, fun and willing to try new things.

Share what your color choice says about you!

    Good morning Delilah
    I have a French manicure which I hope to get updated later today. I work in an office environment so this goes with anything I wear. On my toes I have a steel gray color.

    Today I’m wearing a polish that’s called: “I knead Sourdough”, which has nothing to do with the color. It’s a mix of a brown, bronze, red-ish color. 😆
    “Dark Brown–A deep and rich color, dark brown indicates boldness and authority. It is also the signature of a woman who is earthy and energetic, given it’s associations with Mother Nature.”
    Tonight I’m going for a black/sliver glittery color. “Lucerne-tanly Look Marvelous” 😀

    I don’t wear nail polish. It causes my nails to split. But if I were to choose a colour it would probably be a pale pink.

    Pale Pink

    Soft pink nails belong to someone who is quiet (or doesn’t want to stand out) and youthful without being cutesy. Women who opt for this hue are impeccably groomed, making this the perfect colour for svelte career professionals.

    That is so not me.

    LOL! So not you, Laura? Thanks for sharing ladies! I have a dark black-blue on toes, but those are usually hidden, so I’m not sure what that means. 🙂

    Count me as another person who doesn’t wear polish.

    Merriedth! Cool!

    Lisa! I know it’s a pain in the butt to keep up with. I have very brittle nails. If I don’t paint them, they break and peel. I keep them very short now so I can type fast, but color is like wearing jewels to me.

    I don’t do my nails as they never stay long and pretty so don’t look good with polish. However my daughter always has prettily polished nails and the last time I saw them they were very glittery for Christmas 😀

    I just use a clear protective nail polish. No color.

    I don’t paint my nails. I think that means I am lazy. Or too cheap to buy the polish anymore. I think I threw out more polish than I ever used. The last polish I had broke during a move and spilled all over my favorite towels. Not sure how that happened, but never replace it. *shrugs*

    While I am currently wearing a pale pink, OPI’s “A Rose at Dawn, Broke by Noon”. I have been known to do glitters, hot pink, purple, lavender and dark brown all depending on my mood. However, my favorite color is a red by OPI, it is called “I’m Not Really a Waitress”. I wear this color most of the time. Here is what it said about red polish:

    Red nail polish is the ultimate statement of glamour – a bold, look-at-me colour that speaks of passion, fire and confidence. It marks you out as someone who is daring, dramatic, outgoing and doesn’t shy away from the spotlight. Play with this hue when you want to show off your diva side!

    I have acrylics that I have worn over 20 years now. It is the one little thing I do just for me!
