Confession: I’m a Never Nude about nail polish

21 Jun

So this post isn’t about one of my beauty finds, but I just thought I’d share this beauty revelation I had this morning. I am a Never Nude about nail polish.

If you’re an “Arrested Development” fan, you might get this. But if you’re not, you should be. A character on the show Tobias was a Never Nude, which means that the closest he would get to being nude is wearing a pair of cut-off jean shorts (jorts).

Well, I realized this morning that I’m the same way with finger nail polish. Maybe it was the five years I was a cheerleader that I wasn’t allowed to have painted fingernails for most of the year, or maybe it’s the way a fun color of nail polish can accessorize an outfit. Regardless of the reason, I’d rather not be seen in public without some sort of polish on my nails

This morning when I was getting ready to leave for work I noticed that the navy-colored polish I had painted on my finger nails was chipping horribly. So I decided to take it off. But then I saw that my nails were still navy-tinted and had a mini-beauty breakdown.

I grabbed the nearest nude-colored polish (Ulta salon formula nail laquer in Tutu – which is now discontinued) and painted them in a hurry, almost making me late for work. Below is the result.

Granted, this isn’t by far my best work and you can still see some remnants of my navy polish. But I think it would have killed me to see my bluish nails while I sat at a computer typing all day.

Am I the only Never Nude about nail polish out there? Or are you a Never Nude about some other beauty product?

    With the exception of this past week, I’m also a NN.
