i didn’t wear nail polish until late into my 19th year.

i always assumed that having rather boyish hands, (short, sausage-y, not-at-all girly), would never suit tinted finger-tips. i adored the way it looked on other, more suitable hands, but never dared – until i saw this amazing blood-red varnish, (it could’ve been on gwen stefani), and it was 1996. it progressed quickly, from urban decay‘s gash, (i’d insert a link of a photo, but it’s so long gone it’s almost impossible to find), to purples, blues, and what was very of the time, vom green.

i wouldn’t get near a green these days, yet i am known to be fairly incapable of passing a display of varnishes without picking three one up. i keep it goth-y on fingers and lighter on toes, and if i don’t let up soon, i’ll have to put my collection in cold storage just to keep up with the demand.

    that YSL bleu majorelle is very appealing…

    i’ve always envied girls with beautiful, long slim hands (ie Liv tyler) – have recently fallen in love with the idea of making polish work on my stubby paws. mint colours are my favourite, and i’m always searching for a pale pinkish shade that doesn’t look grey after being applied.

    love the way the bottles look, all lined up.

    vom green… awesome 🙂
