I wish to wear (super-fun) multi-coloured nails like Beyonce
Wed, 29 June 2011 11:13AM
Really important point I need to make before we get started: Just because I’m frothing over Beyonce’s nail colour(s) in these snapsies, it in no way means I am also enjoying the shape of her nails. In my I-like-short-and-rounded-nails opinion, I believe they are too long and too pointy for everyday life. They are, however, perfect for Beyonce and her diva-esque onstage antics.
I’m glad we got that out the way, Primps, because now we can get into the fun stuff (i.e. staring at Beyonce’s multi-coloured nails).

WHY I LOVE HER NAILS:
- I’m a classic kind of girl, Primps, as well as a perfectionist, and if B’s digits were painted blue, green, pink, red and metallic gold, I’d find myself scrunching up my button nose in disgust. But because her colours of choice – pink, orange, tangerine and fuchsia – are all in a similar colour family, I find myself completely in awe.
AND WHY I WISH TO WEAR MULTI-COLOURED NAILS, TOO:
- I often find myself standing in front of my rather epic nail polish collection scratching my head. I love all the colours I own, you see, and choosing just one measly colour to wear is like asking me to choose my favourite makeup brand – it’s practically impossible.
- And sometimes I feel like a particular pink in the massive pile is screaming out “Wear me, please” simply because it’s sitting next to an equally as brilliant coral hue and the pair of them together makes their hues look even better than they do when they’re apart, you know?
- I also can’t help but feel I never have enough fingers (or nail polish remover, or time to paint my nails) to make use of all the pretty colours I’ve collected over the years. Wearing five different colours (or even 10!) at the same time would spread the nail colour love a heck of a long way.
What do you think of Beyonce’s graduated nails?
Do you ever wish to wear more than one nail colour at one time?
Would you actually wear your nails like this?
