Nail Tip Of The Week – Toes & Hose
I mentioned a few weeks back that I saw horrible nail faux pas at a friend’s wedding. Well, here it is folks. I took pictures of some other crimes of pedicure but a drunk Michelle should not be left alone with a digicam. Talk about blur city. This one is bad enough, I really don’t need to inundate you with multiple foot pics. Shall we count the issues here? 1. Toes and Hose. 2. Runner in said hose. 3. Unkempt scraggly nails that can be seen through the hose.
Not long after meeting one of my bestest buds, Jewels, she gave me a one of my favorite fashion mantras, “Toes… no hose, Hose… no toes.” Seems simple, right? Then why oh why do I still see women wearing pantyhose with open toed shoes?
I know it’s colder and you still want to wear those fab peep toes or strappy sandals to weddings, formal events, work, etc. and in the past that left you with two options:
1. Paint your toes, smooth your soles and freeze with bare (well moisturized) legs.
2. Wear closed-toed shoes and be warm in your hose/tights.
I’m here to bring you an option that combines the best of both worlds – Open Toe Pantyhose. That’s right, the manufacturers have listened. You can now hide your pale winter legs behind pantyhose and still wear your fun flirty shoes. I’ve found them online at Yandy.com and Nordstrom.
Ladies, ladies (this includes you my drag queen/transgender friends) why haven’t you learned? Please for the love of all that is polish, pull your friends, neighbors, strangers on the street aside and tell them what they’re doing. Let’s stop this madness now.
