Where Your Style Hasn't Been Fired, It's Been Pink Slipped.

Those Nails! YIKES!!
You can call me Make It Work Molly- Miss Pink Slip Fashion and I “met” one another through the Lucky Blogger Community and I’m so excited to be syndicating my own blog posts here!
Now that we have introductions out of the way, let’s get along to what I think needs to be given the pink slip. Nail art. And not all nail art is bad, but I’m talking about the outrageous patterns that clash with your outfit unless you’re in all black/white/grey tones.
I really really really HATE the multiple patterns and drawings and gems that people stick on their nails. First of all, let’s be honest, how long does that stuff actually last? If you’re anything like me and do absolutely anything with your nails there is no WAY it lasts past the picture. It just can’t.
A quick Pinterest search pulls up some fun ones:
I mean for real seriously? I truly hope if I were a guy and I went out with a girl with THIS on her nails for Valentine’s Day that I would find some way to sneak out the window of the restaurant bathroom. Yuck.
Oh this is another fun one:
I am truly concerned about the amount of time that you literally have on your hands (pun intended) if you have the time to paint itsy bitsy leopard dots on top of your gold French manicure.
Time to put the stilettos away and I’m not talking about the stilettos
that we walk in ladies. Yeah you got it, those stiletto nails that
you see just about every woman wearing nowadays. The ones that make
you cringe by just the thought of being accidentally poked in the eye
by these things. I think it’s time to give this trend the pink slip.
Not only am I getting a Vampira vibe, these Lady Gaga inspired claws
just seem dangerous to be around! Plus, what happens if one breaks??
Awkward anyone? Unless you’re a Scooby Doo monster or going as a witch for
Halloween, there’s no need to rock this celebrity-popularized trend.
Now for those who are guffawing and absolutely just can’t let this trend go
we’ll give you a break and say try a shorter version of the stiletto nail.
Short looks more chic and sophisticated. If these nails are too long the look kinda
turns costume-ish. I mean honestly you can’t do much with nails that are
6 inches long anyways!
Popularized by the Real Housewives, a splash of a contrast nail color on a solitary finger was big for 2012. People even added a little more drama to this cool trend by tossing in prints and shimmering glitter polish.
As we’re transitioning seasons, we’re also spotting a transition of this beauty fad that has made it’s way around the style gamut. It’s time to usher back into play uniformity. Be it a solid shade lacquered all the way across your nails or a standout pattern, switch out the one-nail color trend this season.
