Is It Time To Grow Up?

People always comment on my nail polish. Some older women but mostly younger women. The younger girls seem to comment more whenever I have a glitter explosion on my nails or I am sporting an in your face Konad design. After a teenage girl made a comment on my nails today, I wondered to myself if it is time to grow up…nail polish-wise. At 32 years of age, is it time to move away from the crazy designs I sometimes wear? Should I be moving towards the taupe/beige/mauve office appropriate colors?

Hell-to-the-no. If I get to be old, I am going to be the old lady with crazy nails…and purple eyeshadow. Yeah, all the craziness minus the cats.

So here I am again using another color from the Up & Away Collection. Bubblegum pink? Oh yes, the perfect bubblegum pink.ย  Sugar High was a dream to apply: smooth, saturated and shiny. I love this color for spring and summer!

 

Konad plate M66 is very Japanese inspired and I tried one of the designs. I think I should have picked a more muted pink for this design…something along the lines of OPI’s Japanese Rose Garden would have looked better.

 

So what do you think about this color? Do you think there is an age where elaborate and colorful nails start to seem tacky?

  1. Thank GOD you said "hell to the no" I was beginning to think you were totally nuts! I was like please don't say you're too old, please don't say you're too old. I'm just barely younger than you and I feel like I could wear crazy nails for EVER! Plus, good lord, you're 32.. that's not even old!!! I don't think crazy nails are EVER tacky unless you make them tacky (fake long talons with crazy elaborate nail art). That's just a matter of taste though, not age. There are plenty of young girls with some nasty crazy tacky nails, and then there are older (like 50s+) with perfectly tasteful nails. I really believe length is of utmost importance, personally. You can wear anything on your nails and if they're the right length they look pretty classy. That's just me tho ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I do agree that the longer your nails are, the tackier they can look if you're sporting something "complicated" I always wonder how women do anything when they have long ass nails. I mean, something like washing your hair or other hygiene stuff. Ghaaaaaaaaaaa. I'm grossing myself out again.

  3. I was so afraid that you would only wear taupe/beige/mauve colors. Just wear whatever you like and don't mind others' comments. At least that's what I would do.
    Love the Konad manicure and the pinks are so pretty.

    1. Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, sometimes I just wonder if my nails look silly but I should just worry how I like them and not what other people think.

      Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I'm so happy that you said "Hell-to-the-no." Hehe, it made me laugh! ๐Ÿ˜€ It's good that you enjoy having so much fun getting creative with your nails. Nail polish should always be fun! Wear what you like!

    And sometimes I actually do tacky designs on purpose. They make me smile. ๐Ÿ™‚ Tacky nail polish sometimes serves as a good reminder to not take yourself so seriously. This is one of my life philosophies.

    1. You do such amazing free-hand nail art. I wish I was as creative, but I usually stick with my konad plates and tape to get things done. I need to buy some brushes and dotting tools to get me excited and in the mood to actually try something different.
