Green. The new catch-word du…century. Everyone likes being green and labeling themselves as such. It’s like, totally hip, didn’t cha know? This blip, however is not about the environment, but rather about…nail polish. Flammable, probably really bad for the environment, but yes: nail polish. Ever since Chanel sent green tips down the runway during fashion week, everyone can’t stop talking about the new shade of jade/wintergreen (I’d call it a combo of the two).
It’s taken a while to trickle down but it’s here: green nail polish is now officially acceptable. In fact, this month’s Bizarre (or was it Vogue?) also had a full page write-up on the shade.
Seeing as though green is my favorite color, I kinda like this. I mean… remember when (often vividly) blue nails were hip in the late 90s? Yeah. This is better than that, so I don’t want to hear about how odd or ugly this is. At least it’s subdued green, because we all know the latest nail trends (read: NEON) are far from subtle.
This time, “going green” might subsequently lead you to go against the grain. But since when is that a fashion crime.
To each their own. Also: did I mention Chanel approves? So yeah. It’s okay, people.
