MRDJ: Blue Nails

The Man Repellers du jour hit fairly close to home…mainly because they are my nails.

I’ve been whining to my co-editor about how hard I want to paint my nails denim-blue. In the midst of her lecturing me about how man repelling they are going to be, she still offers suggestions that include me sleeping with my fingers under my pillow so the nails create the same wash-effect real denim has. Just in: no known cure to overcome chronic Man Repelling.

Yesterday, I took the plunge when me and a straight man friend went for afternoon manis! I know what you’re thinking, straight man friend? Yes, so straight. He wanted a foot massage and pedicure because he’s clean. Call him for a good time at 1-800 GOOD HYGIENE. At the salon, several white girl problems were stirring–we overheard one girl complaining to her friend because the lady giving her a manicure was wearing the same Cartier love bracelet. But back to my fingaz, from far they look something like this.

But from close…

I have ten smurfs growing off the tips of my fingers. The straight man friend with foot problems encouraged painting Man Repeller across my nails though he did say: I’m different than most guys, I appreciate your weird shit.

Disclaimer: On one previous occasion, said man friend with foot problems asked me why I was wearing absurdly high-waisted silk shorts. I responded “because they’re cool” and he rebutted “really? That’s what you think? Ok.”

Ok indeed.

    Love blue nails and have gotten quite a good amount of compliments from men on them too. My favorite shade: “Pacific Blue” by Sally Hansen- Extreme Wear.
