Talk To The (Well Polished) Hand

I fondly remember spending lazy afternoons painting my grandmother's nails and then painting my own as we chatted about whatever gossip there was that week (her gossip about the church ladies, mine about the playground queen bees). While this nostalgia may be the underlying reason to my own love of nail polish, what anyone can appreciate about a good  polish is that it can transform even the most classic of wardrobes to have a certain air of edge and glamour. 

Just as with fashion, the colours of makeup change with the season, and this season is definitely making a statement with nail colour. Not only are the colours bold - navy blues, bright silvers and golds, deep reds the perfect greys - but polish is also now making way with texture - bring on the glitter, the matte and high gloss polishes! 

Note that when it comes to nail colour, the shorter the nail the more bold you can go with the polish (long talons and metallic polish can border on being costume-like). My personal preference is a short nail, filed to have rounded square tip. I am currently wearing "Glitzerland" by OPI (shown in the above bottle). 

☮ peace and fashion
