Black is nice. Don't get me wrong. I love black dresses, black skirts, black heels, black coats... I've never really been very excited about black tops. But that's just me. I love color.
What bugs me is when black is sorely misused. You know when you look at someone and you're just like "Woah. Too much black." Obviously there are goths and all that, but that's not what I'm talking about. Goths will be goths, and it doesn't seem to me that they are too interested in looking good...
so I'm just not going to talk about them.
I mostly get upset when people have hair that is naturally blond, light brown, or even on the darker side of brown, who dye their hair black. And they were meant to have blond/brown hair! Trust me on this.
|Miley Cyrus as an example. I guess she's trying to make her pale face match her hair |
better by putting on a lot of black eye makeup.
Not working for me. What is her real hair color anyway? I think it's blond... haven't seen it in awhile though.
Personally, I'm not really into hair-dying at all... but it can be done tastefully, and although I don't think I would ever do it, I like it on some people.
Usually people have a pretty nice skin color/hair color combo that makes them look natural, and when you are lighter haired and you go super-black... you're gonna look washed-out and weird.
Some girls who have darker complexions can go black without it looking unnatural. For instance, my sister Bethany could totally pass for an Indian if she dyed her hair black. But although my skin is also darkish, I have light eyes and so I think I would look a little odd.
Black fingernail polish is one of my pet peeves of all time. It's a big trend right now, though, so sadly, my feelings are unpopular. I think it makes peoples' fingers look like they are rotting. When I have girls I will literally tell them they can't wear black nail polish. Hopefully they don't hate me for it. (I won't let my boys wear black nail polish either, in case you were wondering).
Any color of fingernail polish is better than black. Even poison green.
I did that once and it was actually kinda cool.
