Jen and I have been discussing all things nails this month (obviously) and we keep coming back to this same “rule” that I heard somewhere that states the following:
Dark polish is better for shorter nails, light polish is best for longer nails.
…Did I make this up in some subconscious part of my mind? I mean, logically and aesthetically it makes…sense. But I’d love to hear your opinions on it.

I have been following these rules for the last… five years when it comes to my nails. “Stubby” nails always look a little less tiny when they’re a deep purple color, and long nails don’t look very… rawr if they’re lighter in color. Then again, I’ve seen some really beautiful, long, dark nails in my time – these are the important things we have to think about in life.
What do you think?
PS – Here is my latest attempt at having awesome nails:
