It is totally shameful that I just flipped through a magazine that said, "Short dark nails are in!" I immediately grabbed (my daughter's) dark purple nailpolish (from the year she was a witch for Halloween, if that gives you a color visual) and painted my (short) nails dark. My husband looked over and said, "Hmmm. Ugly. Looks like dried blood." "Yup, ugly," I responded, "but in."
How needy am I?! Do I think someone will overlook my "What Not to Wear" old running shoes and dark roots to say, "But her nails look great, so clearly she's making some statement with the rest of it"?
Needy. Are we all programmed to be needy lemmings? Nah, it's just me.
