>After wearing Atomic Orange to the office off and on for the better part of a year, someone finally noticed my nail color. “That’s not you! That’s my daughter! That’s a toe color!” What the? I can wear any damn color I want, thank you very much.
Just because you think blue, orange and green belong on your toes doesn’t mean that we all subscribe to the same fashion theory. I will admit that 15 years ago, I felt the same way, but my tastes have evolved. You can’t wear the same nail color you wore in the 90s. I mean who still has a bottle of Vamp in their collection? Why limit your nail color to pinks, reds and French Manicures?
It makes me happy to see a bright color flash across my keyboard. If I could afford sparkly sapphires and emeralds, I would be wearing those on my fingers, but instead I substitute Here Today Aragon Tomorrow and Suzi Says Feng Shui.
>Well good on you, I say. If they say anything that's a good sign. Still, what took them so long to notice?
>Well, my office is predominantly male, so they either don't notice or don't comment. I rarely interact with the chick who noticed my nails.
