Getting Creative With Nail Art

I've always been a little late to the party, as it were, with some fashion trends. And that has certainly been the case with bold nail color choices and decorative nails. As a mostly clear, frosted white, pink and light red nail polish wearer of many years, I haven't been very adventuresome in the nail department. But, lately, I have decided to go boldly where I haven't gone before (Star Trek talk) and experiment with some more modern nail color choices. And there are so many to choose from!

My first foray into the wide world of nail polish colors was shown on this post when I styled my white Skechers sandals with a striped dress. You can read the whole post here.
Since blue is one of my fave colors anyway, I decided to go with that color for a "trial run" of a new toe polish color. And I decided I really liked the look! But then, I decided to go even bolder! Why not try another new color (like purple) and just go for broke and add some cute sparkly nail decals, as well! (I'm such a wild woman!) So, here is my latest look. The two decals don't show up as well as I hoped in the photo. They are simply stick on decals that I covered with a clear topcoat to keep them in place.
What do you think? It's fun to try new nail polish and experiment with being a little bolder with style and color. One of the joys of being over age 50, for me, is feeling more confident in trying new things. Keeping my style fresh is part of that confidence. Hmmm....I've tried some bold new nail polish...I wonder what I could do with some of those bold hair colors? (Maybe I'm not quite ready for that .... yet.......)
How about you? Have you tried bolder nail polish colors? How do you step out of your comfort zone with style? Hope you'll leave a thought.....
Until Next Time,
