I had on my original list of New Things to try to "get a manicure in a weird color" to break out of my trend towards the mommy mauves, neutrals and reds. I'm young. I should be wearing on my nails electric blues, freakish metallics and all the stuff they put in the pages of Vogue.
So at first I thought orange would be the winner for this challenge...and then I remembered that I went to the University of Georgia where we hate orange! Go Dawgs!

And, more practically, that I own nothing that would even kind of go with orange, as my clothing is largely of the jewel tone variety.
So then I thought--why don't I jump into the black nail polish trend? I can pretend I'm Benji from Good Charlotte...or, you know, Lauren Conrad got away with it, so there's no reason I can't do it too. Punk rockers and reality TV celebs alike enjoy black nail polish, and I fall squarely in between the two of them.
