Is this nail varnish going to make me look ridiculous?

I'm out tonight. With people I don't know,they're a bit older than me and I haven't a clue about their style.

I love my clothes. I'm wearing:

Black fitted v neck top with 3/4 sleeves
Black and white monochrome pencil skirt
Black opaquessad bloody weather
Black suede shoe boots

I love nail varnish. Normally wear grey/ sludge, dark colours or play it safe with nudes. Never bright. Thought, though as its "summer" , I'd try
Will I look stupid? I'm 46 .

If you love it wear it!
Only a total arse would tell you they think you look stupid and what would you care about their opinion!

It's just red nail varnish - it'll be fine!

If it makes you feel any better I'm nearly 38 and had multi primary coloured nails with pop art polka dots this week grin !

I think it will brighten up your outfit. Could you throw in another dash of colour, neon clutch bag or something?

Sounds perfect actually! Classic look, no? TBH I'd be tempted to wear red lippy too, but then I almost always do.

MrsLettuce Sat 18-May-13 14:57:15

No,no,no to bright bag. Black or maybe white.

Definitely yes to the nail polish, in fact I'd go even brighter than that!
Have a good night smile

It's lovely - perfect with a monochrome outfit. As mrsLettuce says I'd wear red lippy too.

I love nail varnish and am currently wearing Glamourous Geleration - its a shocking pink/red colour and its very bright. Its perfect for 'summer'

Go for it!

Oh thanks flowers all! Have red poppy MrsLettuce will try. Had ordered a gabby black suede clutch but not arrived yet angry but have a black reserve that will look ok
