I’m a traditionalist when it comes to my nails. Although I love getting manicures and pedicures, I generally stay with the classic French look because it matches everything--or--I go with shades to match the color scheme of a particular outfit.
But I’m always looking at other women’s nails, and I’m not shy in telling a stranger when hers look great. I’ve noticed that nail painting has become part of the total look--much like other accessories--often in every color in the rainbow, and adorned with stickers, decals, and even piercings.
Still, I don’t have the desire or the guts to go that far myself.
However, I will make the following statement right here and now: if Kelly or I “final” next year in the Romance Writers of America “Rita” Contest with GRAFFITI GIRL or TOP TEN USES FOR AN UNWORN PROM DRESS, I promise to go all nail-crazy. A pink flowery prom look to match my book. Or graffiti art (?!?) to go with the heart of Kelly’s heroine’s desire. And if we both final...uh...fingers one look, toes the other?
Let’s cross all our digits that I’m forced to live up to this promise!
