HNT - Polished (Retro)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I love painted nails, but with Midwest winters being so dry and cold, my nails take a beating. I usually go with the bare nekkid look from October through April, when my nails start to grow again.

Welcome to the first painting of the season!

OK, do I detect a slightest hint of color in the handle there? Or are my eyes just shot?

Striking color, that there is!

This is a beautiful shot. At her request, I paint my daughter's nails. Wrapped around her fingers I am. :)

I love painted nails. Mine never go with out.

You have lovely nails, I bet they look GREAT painted. Huge fan of selective coloring, you know. ;)

Very cool. Great photos.

That is such a great picture! I let my stylist do a manicure yesterday with clear polish...shhh, don't tell work! I hate not being able to paint my nails b/c of work but my toes are pretty adorable this week. Green with little flowers...maybe I should use that as my HNT.

I love painted nails too. They look good. I love how you did the selective coloring here.

I just did my nails Tuesday. I did them black though, lol. I don't get to do them often or keep them for long. Not allowed to have polish on my nails at work. Health hazard and all. Wouldn't want the polish flaking off into someone's drink after all..

Happy HNT!

Yay! I wish I could paint my nails more often, but I'm not allowed for work :(
This is an awesome picture though!
Happy HNT!

So do we get to see the result of your efforts? I love pretty painted nails. You have very nice hands!

Happy Retro HNT!

Lilly said...

Well despite dry winters, your nails look better than mine!! I'm trying but they just dont like being longish and girly. It's tough upkeep!

I tried painting mine red last week and I ended up looking like a 5 yr old painted them....I couldn't quite remain in the lines, lol. Red is kinda unforgiving!

Biscuit said...

I have always been so jealous of girls with pretty nails. Mine are ick. Yours are quite beautiful! :)

g-man said...

Very nice. I like the blurred edges, and selective coloration. Well done Dana. Wet and wild red huh? ;)

Karl said...

Good Morning Dana,

Nice color, doesn't it match your car?

The color is GORgeous! I have a purple and a green that would look most excellent beside that color (I never paint all my nails the same color)

You have lovely nails and hands.

Lu' said...

I like the retro :)

Jay said...

Wet and Wild? Yeah baby! ;-)

It's very red. That's hot.

A Secret Freak said...

Bina said...

What an awesome picture Dana! And you have such pretty nails. My left hand nails can get that long, but not my right. I think I clean too much.

Love the color, too! What color is that? I would love to have it!

Real Live Lesbian said...

What pretty hands you have! I love RED RED RED polish!

Lil Bit said...

Ooooo! Awesome shot -- and your hands are v. pretty w/nails so evenly long (not a broken one in the lot!) =)

Interesting that you chose to start on the middle finger! lol

HHNT! =)

That is the same shade as my toenails are right now! And I love those B&W shots with the streak of vivid colour--its a shock to the system, very dramatic! Happy HNT!

snugs said...

rage said...

I really love how you kept the photo black and white with exception of the red bottle of polish and the polish that was going on your nail. Nicely done!

Average Chick said...

I can never let my nails go without paint be it winter or summer. I love the black and white and color effect! So cool!!
