Before I started blogging, the only nail polish colors I would even consider wearing were natural colors, red, or pink. Anything beyond that was way too out of my comfort zone. Lately I have seen so many bloggers rocking wild nail colors like neon yellow, turquoise blue, or even leopard print! I decided to give a bolder nail polish a try and bought this bright green color:

I'll be honest, when I first finished applying the nail polish, I instantly hated it. I wanted to immediately wipe it off. But I decided to give it a little more time and see if it grew on me... and it did! I actually really enjoyed this bright green nail polish. I love how bold it is. It makes me wonder what other bold colors I should try ;)

What is the boldest nail polish color you have worn? Or are you a more natural gal?

Oh, and P.S., this is how I have been working these days:

Yup, been working with our tiny kitten sleeping in my hand. Sorry for posting so many pictures of him, but he is just too darn cute!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this floral skirt:

I used to be a neutral or maroon nail polish person but, now I'll try anything! I love the Sally Hansen nail strips :)

Este outfit me encanta! Q lindo le combinan las prendas en dorado con amarillo y estan super lindas! Las formas en q haz usado la falda me gustan mucho, en especial con el polo, no se me habia ocurrido esa combinación y me parece super!!! No creo q a sammy le guste tanto la idea de que el gatin le este robando la atencion! Jaja oh! Se me olvidaba, q lindo ese color de esmalte, yo soy super miedosa para variar los colores mas alla de rosados y rojos... Lo más que he usado es fucsia escarchado, hace meses quiero pintaelas azul a ver q tal pero no he tenido oportunidad

I loved your hair like that, it is very flattering to your face! I also love the nude shoes, and the nude 'bag" (i know it is not really a bag, right? But i dont know how it is in english, hahahah).

And, of course, amazing outfit!! But i need to me honest and admit that the cat caught all my attention!!!!!!! He is so so so small, and so cute!

I love this skirt, Marie! And I like your nail polish, I'm glad you stuck with it! I, too, used to just like safe, basic colors, but the past few years have branched out! It's a simple way to be a little daring! I have silver, teal blue, metallic gold...but my favorite is one that is a mix of blue and purple. Depending on how the light hits it, it looks different. Just beautiful! Thanks for all the inspiration you give, I love how you dress and hope to be just like you when I grow up (even though I know I am much older than you! :D

The boldest nail polish color i have worn is probably yellow, bright yellow.
Followed by animal print, blue, black and white stripes and fuchsia. Before i only had my nails done in light colors like you but now.... the sky is the limit !
