    Gray is the new black ... or so they say I can't even count how many compliments I've received on this color the last few days.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Nowadays, my mood for nail polish are in shades of red, green and blue. But one time as a joke, I went to work with my toes painted red and purple. Alternate toes. Some of my officemates like it and some said it was yucky. =)

    Revlon Blackberry, it's the only color I ever paint my toes, it's a lovely dark burgundy. I don't paint my fingernails so much because it chips off easily. I don't use base/top like I should.

    Is this for real? From AVON? Pure red? I might try it because my boyfriend loves it when my nails are red. And what do you mean 5 years? You've had the "nail polish bottle" for 5 years? =)

    I LOOOOOOVE pedicure, cause I like how i feel barefoot, I never wear socks in the house, and I wear flip flops a lot during summer soooo... I wear all kinds of glitter. All colours, all sizes of glitter. Underneath the glitter I put a base of pearly white,or pearly light blue, but rarely. Usually just glitter.

    I like all the colours of you here, but most of them require more pretentious shoes, so they're not for me.

    Gorgeous pedicures!

    I had my pedicure today - the label at the bottom of the OPi bottle was gone except for the product no .182. I will try and post a pic later and I am trying to get the name of the polish - it's gorgeous red sparkly colour.

    EDIT :Here's the pic- taken at the time.... I couldn't find the name of the color........ I think it's a discontinued color.

    So while I didn't get a chance to sniff anything during my time at New York Fashion Week I did find myself in 2 swag suites and there were two nail polish lines I was unfamiliar with.
    The first was Ginger + Liz and they have an inital run of 12 colors. Mad Money was a great green and there was a grey one that I didn't catch the name of.
    The other was RGB and this is as basic a nail polish line as you can get but they all looked great there were two that caught my eye Slate and Steel. Slate was shimmery black sort of similar to Butter London Chimney Sweep and Steel was a sttel grey that was great.
    I also got a look at the Butter London color that will be available next fall Vena Cava which is a mix of burgundy and purple and definitely a color for me.

    Thanks so much- I go back and forth as to whether or not I should be trying to pull off the look. It's one thing to be barefoot at home and something else to be in public with painted toes. I definitely like how it looks (with color), and I definitely think that nobody else should have any influence on whether I can and/or should do so, but I still must acknowledge how provocative and controversial a man with painted toes supposedly is, and so, ironically, it is just about as complicated as it is liberating! If I only had to deal with the positive reactions I get from most girls, (including the ladies in this forum) that'd be great. But unfortunately most guys are so incredibly homophobic and/or close-minded that they can't wrap their mind around the fact that a guy could paint his toenails and not be gay.

    Then again, maybe I subconsciously like that it's provocative and weird. If I had a girlfriend that was into it, then I'd be all set.

    Scentronic- you should do what you like ! I think it looks great- yeah it's controversial for men but to hell with those who judge ! Life is too short to worry what Tom, Dick or Harry thinks about this and that .............You and SMM look great with painted nails and why not ?? !!!

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.
