Would You Wear Multiple Shades of Nail Polish?

We totally fell for the fluorescent nail polishes that were popping on some of Hollywood’s chicest nails this summer. The neon pink, yellow and orange shades all looked awesome with the season’s metallic gladiators and bronzed (faux, of course) skin. But choosing just one can be difficult, and apparently Christina Milian felt the same way when she decided to paint her nails in alternating shades of electric orange and neon yellow. We’re not sure that we could rock this look with the same conviction as the singer, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Would you wear two different colors on your nails?

maybe in 8th grade or for Halloween… but otherwise, no.

Samantha on

that’s what 8-year-olds do…
there’s NO WAY I would wear somethng like that!!
not even for Halloween!

EChizzle on

Been there done that when I was a teen. I think it looks cute on her. She’s young enough to pull it off and she does it nicely.

Anna on

I’m 13 years old, and this is a cool trend with me and my friends. I’m actually wearing that color combo right now. I can see how adults might now like it, but for teens and young adults (early 20s) I think it’s awesome!

Lindsay on

no thanks, I’m not 9 years old.

jGrrl on

Yes, I would, have and still do at times. Its fun, no matter what the stuffies think or cluck about. I used to work on the stage doing improv, we did silly things like that to break up the monotony of the road. I worked many Gay and alternative bars where glitter, glam and fantasy were the only ticket. I also have kids who think I’m fun, and it makes me smile. So yes, I really like it and I’m going to keep right on doing it too.

Oh, and I’m not 9 years old. I’m thirty three and I remember what living is rather than simple “showing” and monotonous existing. Lighten up folks, to each their own and have a little fun before its too late for good. Actually, from a few of these comments – it looks like its already just a bit too late.

Yessie on

Yes, you don’t have to be a kid to rock more than one nail color. I think it’s super cute.

Samantha on

to Grrrl,
so you mean that people who don’t like this style are living in a monotonous existing??:S
that doesn’t make much sense lol
I’m 14 and i simply don’t like it!! it doesn’t mean i’m monotonous, cause i could be everything minus monotonous… so think a little before saying all these nonesense:)

alexa on

not even when i was eight did i condider such a trend..

Daniellee on

I am 20 and i wear this alot. I am confident and it doesnt bother me. I say if you dont like, bite it.

Christine on

I loved that look when I was 12… unfortunately, for most adults with professional careers, neon nail polish isn’t an option, and neither is wearing multiple shades of such polish. But on a teen girl, why not? It looks fun.

Isabella on

Wow. I haven’t seen this look in a long time. I personally wouldn’t wear it.

Jess on

i love how everyone is arguing back and forth on this. so immature. if you like it you like it if you dont you dont. it doesnt make you bad or anything its just a matter of taste. its not kiddy or whatever…its a matter of taste. so who cares and enuf with the cattiness back and forth. grow up!

Rosie on

No, I wouldn’t wear multiple shades of nail polish. It looks immature! I prefer one colour; it’s simple and classic.

Anna on

Jess-
The point of this little blog is to post your opinion. If one person says they don’t like it, then the next says it’s cute, that’s not arguing. That’s having different opinions and having the right to express them. So please, this is not “catty”, and you, grow up!

Kasey on

Uh yeah back in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

Heather Smith on

Absolutely not. It looks silly.

cybil on

UH NO!

de on

yes, i’d love to, i’m almost thirty now…it’s just for fun anyway

[qets(no)better]..Mz.Tasia on

omq yes i would wear multiple nail colors..i have done it before and i think it is very cute and if you wear different color nails its a very hard possibility that somebody will have the same colors on their nails…i think it is for young ppl.. OLD PPL SHOULDNT TRY THIS..

the one && only Tasia…remember that it [qets(no)better] than me

o_O on

i think if you r confident enough to do it then u should!!!¡¡ i think it shows a fun side to ur character!!
