Everybody, Everywear: I don't really wear green

Green | Everybody, Everywear


It's true. I'm not sure why not. Green's not so bad. I have a like and white dress I love for summer but it's not warm enough to include it in this challenge.
I had no idea what to do until I remembered Cabaret. The film has been on my mind lately because I was supposed to go to the Weimar cabaret-themed Scorpion's Kiss but something came up. In planning my outfit I thought of Liza Minnelli and her nails in the movie jumped out at me. She's all excited to show off her the emerald lacquer on her long pointy nails. How anachronistic, I thought. Wrong. I later read that bold young women of the 1930s eschewed red and pink polishes in favor of deep, serpentine greens. So consider this a) my subversion of the mint green nail polish trend I hate and b) a nod to Miss Sally Bowles.

  1. That's a pretty shade of green! I'm not sure I've ever worn green polish before... I tend to gravitate towards either red or blue.
