Perhaps not the most scintillating topic in my blog posts but somehow this morning, the day before the big night (some say biggest night of the year), this seemed appropriate.  After all, even me, with my short and uneven nails will be wearing nail polish.   In fact as soon as I bang out this post, I’m off to treat myself to a New Year‘s mani-pedi.  Wish my little granddaughter Finley was in town, I’d take her with me.  She loves getting a mani-pedi and she’s only 3.  However, let me get on record here, I may be an indulgent over-giving grandmother, but it was not I who introduced her to the world of nail salons.  She actually has her favorite – I tried to take her once to one across the street from me and she wailed on about “her” salon down the street; OMG

Well anyway, if you have been reading up on the latest nail color trends then you know that dark is still quite in! Ever since Channel introduced their black nail polish, the industry has developed some pretty wild colors and the names to go with them.

See if you can picture these colors from their names and descriptions.  Hint- they’re all dark to varying degrees.

  1. Pretty Edgy – Palmetto green
  2. Power Clutch – Deep gray green
  3. Bobbing for Baubles-Deep rich sapphire
  4. Cocktail Bling-Pale pearly gray
  5. School of Hard Rocks-Midnight malachite
  6. Chin Chilly-Granite gray
  7. Smokin’ Hot-Stone cold fox gray
  8. Velvet Voyage-Chocolate Amethyst
  9. Little Brown Dress-Black coffee
