Falling for the Trends

I have been noticing more and more girls getting into the purple nail polish trend and, being the completely original & non-conformist that I am (HA), I just had to try it for myself.

They're actually not that bright of a purple in person... weird...

I have to say, I was a bit skeptical of wearing the darker shade on my nails at first.  This is probably due to the fact that two of my friends still tease me about that time I wore black polish when we went out a few years ago, when I thought it was incredibly chic and sophisticated and glamorous because EVERYONE ON THE HILLS IS WEARING IT! Apparently those girlfriends of mine didn’t watch The Hills (I know… What?!) and still tease me to this day for ever thinking dark polish could be anything other than gothic.  Whateva, I say.

I give it a thumbs-up too, Lauren.  Har-har.

So what do you all think?  Do you stick with more natural colors on your nails?  No polish at all?  Or do you go all out bold, dark, and don’t care if people say you look like you should be wearing a trenchcoat and casting spells?

Do you definitely not put as much thought into it as I do because you actually have this little thing called a life?  Yeah, that’s what I figured.
