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.
This style of nails is known as the stiletto nail and has been made popular by celebrities like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Fergie.
Embellished Nail Art
Why not decorate your nails with a little bling?
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.
