Friend today was hmm when she saw my nails and said at 28 I was circa 10 years too old to have my nails painted like this.

Opinions please, and feel free to share picture of equally age inappropriate nails.

Your friend is jealous because you have pretty nails.

gaggiagirl Wed 24-Jun-15 20:59:55

I support your nails 100%! Love em. I'm 33 and mine are nail art tastic. I'll post pics soon.

There's no upper age limit to nail polish, wear whatever you want, whenever you want, whenever you want smile. Tell your friend to get some glitter polish on her nails and some wine down her grin

Your friend is being riddiculous!

Your nails look lovely! I have managed to stop biting mine for the first time in my life and they are not as long as yours bit getting there, they have white bits at the end now! I can't wait for them to be a little bit longer so I can paint them etc, yours look fab! Oh and i am 36.

It isn't my taste. I prefer short nails done in one glossy colour with no sparkles. But you are in your twenties so I don't think it is too old as such. Maybe skip the sparkles once you hit your thirties.

What lovely hands you have <glances at own wizened claws on ends of arms> <Weeps>

Your friend just needs to let it go...

Why should you skip sparkles in your 30s? Or even your 80s for that matter?

Cliffdiver Wed 24-Jun-15 21:04:17

Thanks all, Bodica I've got 14 months left of glitter then grin better make the most of it.

I don't like it personally but I don't know what age has to do with it.

32 grin

I wouldnt say its an age thing. I just think they look tacky. Obviously you dont so rock on, dont get caught up in what other people think, honestly whats the point?
My mum is 55 and has those pointy witchy fingers in bright pink with diamantes, glitter and all sorts on, so deffo not an age thing.

coffee I like! I have a similar peace Barry M - one of my favourites.

My MIL in her 50's is doing her nails like this at the moment - and would not be impressed if anyone told her she was too old wink

If you like it, that's all that matters!

elderflowerlemonade Wed 24-Jun-15 21:06:32

I love them! So pretty.

OvertiredandConfused Wed 24-Jun-15 21:06:50

I'm 45 and I had these for my holiday last year.

Rest of the time I prefer a French manicure, subtle nude or bright red.

Littleorangecat Wed 24-Jun-15 21:07:12

YANBU, there is no upper age limit on glittery nails. Mine usually look like this. Sod your friend, she sounds a bit of a misery.

Cliffdiver Wed 24-Jun-15 21:10:32

confused love the clashing colours.

Fairy13 Wed 24-Jun-15 21:13:27

I'm 26 and can't not have my nails done, total addict. Yours look lovely smile

elderflowerlemonade Wed 24-Jun-15 21:14:30

They are pretty fairy.

All the girls at baby group get their nails done loads. I had mine done last week for the first time but they looked awful within five days!

Princessceeceeofthesea Wed 24-Jun-15 21:14:46

Well I here are my nails. I'm 39.
