I’m deep into the second season of Orange is the New Black (just the finale to go), and so everything remotely V-shaped, including this manicure, reminds me of Vee, no one’s favourite stone cold psycho predator. For a show that seems to pride itself on finding some nugget of empathy for even the most reprehensible of characters (whaddup, Pennsatucky?), there is a remarkably shallow wellspring of goodwill for Vee, mostly because she engenders exactly zero goodwill in the first place. Girlfriend’s just straight up evil. Fans of The Wire will know exactly what I’m talking about when I say that Vee and Marlo Stanfield would make an excellent couple – cold, remorseless and wedded to The Game. And somewhere I just touched off some VERY odd fan fic!

For these nails, a simple V-shaped design, I layered KB Shimmer’s glittery white, Full Bloom Ahead, over top of Sally Hansen’s Lustre Shine in Lava, a beautiful pink-to-gold-to-copper multichrome with a fun foil finish. It’s a bit of an odd colour combination, but startlingly pretty all the same.

  1. Love the manicure AND the show!! I am on episode 10 of season two and don’t know how I will kill the next year waiting for season three. Have you noticed a kind of LOST vibe with the way they are feeding us the characters back stories? LOVE it!!

    • Thank you! And yes, the back stories do remind me of Lost, but thankfully OITNB hasn’t become bogged down in trying to link them all together like Lost did. It’s SUCH good television and I want to know about everyone!

      • I did; ugh, soooo good! It makes a crazy kind of sense, though – I started getting this inkling last year that maybe things with her weren’t quite what they seemed, like maybe Christopher didn’t even exist, but then I remembered that Nicky said he hadn’t been to visit since Lorna had first visited, meaning he was at least real…I loved Miss Rosa’s back story; what a badass!
