Oh My God, Your Nails Are Chipped! That's So Chic

May 22, 2008 by Bryn

First it was visible bras straps, then dirty hair, and now, according to the New York Times, chipped nail polish is not only considered socially acceptable, but is actually becoming a fashion statement. Well, it's about time, people. When I think of how much money, worry, and effort I have invested into making sure my nails were up to par following a manicure – especially one with dark nail polish – it makes me more than a little depressed.  Okay, a bit of an exaggeration, however, it has always been annoying to discover that first chip after trying so hard to maintain impeccably manicured nails.

I welcome this trend with open arms, and am a big fan of the shabby chic look. As long as there's no dirt under those fingernails, I say, go ahead! chip away!

And for the most dramatic effect, start with a darker polish, like mysterious Lincoln Park After Dark or sultry I'm Not Really A Waitress.
