Nail Art Allows You to Express Yourself

Nail Art - Seasonal nail art.

I have always leaned toward a more conservative look. I have come through 5 decades of life and still only have one hole pierced in each ear and no tattoos. I think some ladies and men pull that look off great, like Adam Levine, I’m just not that cool. When it comes to nail art I have also stayed pretty conservative, but when Michelle Obama sported blue nails I had to test the waters and I love my blue nail polish. Today, I really stepped out of the box at the nail salon with two different colors of polish on my nails and even had them do a geometric pattern, on two of my fingers. I must say I like my new look! Who knows where I’ll take it next…

Nail Art for Every Season

I do think nail art is a great way to express yourself without committing to it for life like a tattoo. It’s fun, it’s colorful, and it can be seasonal for any holiday. Sitting in the nail salon today I saw ladies getting Halloween themed nail art and I was tempted but decided on a more non-committal option.

Unique Shaped Nail Art

Lately, I have been noticing some unique shapes in nail art. Pointed tips have been showing up in nail fashion and I do think it is for the more daring and brave to pull that one off. To me, it looks like they could be a little dangerous to rock.

The older I get the more I like to try new things when it comes to fashion. I think maybe it’s the confidence you gain when you finally reach an age where you realize the most important person to please is yourself.
