My boss and I have a great relationship. She had me over for Thanksgiving one year, we actually enjoy going on work trips together, and going to Chick Fil A is one of our favorite pastimes. Basically, we love each other.

But there is one thing I do that she does not care for – follow nail polish trends.

I’ll be honest – my nails are not often pretty. I’m too lazy/busy to keep up with always chipping polish, and I’m too practical/poor to justify regular shellac manicures. Every once in a while, though, I get inspired, usually by new colors. And sometimes, I can’t decide which color I prefer, so I use both.

This is the trend my boss hates. Every time I do it, she asks if I got confused. And it is a bit of an odd trend, I suppose. But I embrace it because it allows me to have even more color on my body – and you know there’s nothing I love more than lots of color.
