Lately I’ve been noticing that many celebs and gals around campus are painting their ring finger or thumb nail a different color from the rest. I read an article in Cosmo about this interesting nail trend, so I embarked on a mission to find the meaning behind this (That’s…if there is one). Apparently, these added nail embellishments are gaining popularity pretty quickly in cities like New York, Miami, and London. The purpose of painting your thumb a different color from the rest is referred to as “Blackberry Bling” because avid texters want to show off their super cool thumbs. Kinda ridiculous, I know. “Blackberry Bling” truly speaks about our culture right now. Whether you’re a generation x or millennial, your thumbs are probably always on the go.
Of course, I had to test the waters myself, so my nails are currently polished in Essie’s Luxedo (deep plum) and my one ring finger in Essie’s Shift Power (gold). I can’t say that having my ring finger painted a different color really perks up my manicure. Hmm…..maybe if I bedazzled it?
