BB Couture - Widow Maker

I have been experimenting with colors to wear on my nails when I feel like being different. The blacks are associated with Goth and rockers, which clearly I am neither. I am not trying to look feminine so I wouldn't wear pinks or reds. So far I like grays like My private Jet and greens like BB Couture Grenade and Mariner. I have no plan to wear polish on my nails all the time, since they get messed up in a blink of the eye. My job requires me to reach into machines with all sorts of sharp edges and other nail polish destructing obstacles. I have trouble navigating the house with out some how messing them up.

I went to the pharmacy with this polish on. The cashier made the comment "fancy nails" to which I replied "Thanks" and left it at that. Reading between the lines, I interpreted that as she noticed but didn't know what to think of it, but felt compelled to not let it go with out saying something. With MPJ, I got an actual compliment. I wear polish on my toes because I like how it looks and enjoy pedicures. The nails I do when I want to be noticeably different and enjoy watching and hearing peoples reactions. I would love to have long nails for a couple of days just to see what it would be like and to see peoples reactions.

  3. Thanks Kim! Widow maker was easier to apply than blue steel or 45 caliber; those two have more of a metallic finish and show brush strokes more than Widow maker. I love all three of those grays. All of the ladies out there probably wouldn't have any trouble with any of them.

  5. Grays and blacks are a safer choice for a guy. I actually prefer dark greens and chocolate browns. The holographic polishes like lizard belly are my all time favorite. I want to get some Ozotic Holographic polishes next.
