I’m going really fembot with this.

Specifically, I’m mostly using silver shades, like Essie’s No Place Like Chrome, which is fantastic. Really. Why am I doing this? I can only assume it’s because the Fifty Shades of Grey advertising campaign has, at long last, broken me.

And because I’m really trying to hint heavily to people that I am a robot. I don’t come right out and say it, but, if I feel like I’m not going to run into someone again, I very strongly imply that I am either a robot of from the future. A good way to do that is, if people ask about your silver nail polish just reply “it came with my hands.” Then stare at them for a second too long.

Oh, also, I’m trying to stop ripping at my cuticles, which is a thing I do, because I am a big bag full of neurosis, I guess. I figured that if my nails looked really pretty I would stop, or pay more attention to my hands, or something.

Robots can be neurotic, too.

So, taking all of that into account, do you have any good colors to recommend? I could break out of this whole shades of grey thing, maybe. Or not.
