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!
