Buh-Bye Black: It's All About Red Nails Like Ashlee's

02/02/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

It looks like trend-setting celeb fingertips are moving on. Stars from Ashlee Simpson to Hilary Duff to Nicole Richie are trading their Goth-inspired black nail polish for classic candy-apple red. Still a bold statement, but a lot easier to swallow for most of us. And it only gets lighter from here — we hear that white polish is making a big comeback too, just in time for the mod trend for spring. Tell us: Will you wear red? Are you ready to give up black polish?

Want to try a new red? Check out Essie Red Label, $7, or ” target=”_blank”>Barielle Driven, $8. Ready for white? We love Nars Edelweiss, $15.

I’m not wearing any nail polish just because it’s a “trend”. I wear whatever I feel like wearing.

Yep, I’m wearing red nailpolish now, but it’s darker than what Ashlee is shown wearing. I have a whole case of nail polish – and I’m always buying more. I will wear this color, and other funky ones when the weather warms up!

I’ve always worn red and black nail polish so it wouldn’t be a matter of giving up one for the other ~ I may try white polish though

Love the red polish. Black was OK for fall, but red is glorious for spring!

I think the red nail polish is very cute. However, I have to ask why do people care what color a celebrities nails are?

Jenn on

I love red so that’s definitely a trend I will follow. I do also like the black nail polish with certain outfits, so I’ll keep doing that as well too.

Well I must say that red nails are better then black. The Sunglasses are UGLY.

I, like many others here, have been wearing both shades for a very long time. In fact, I’m sporting short red nails at this very moment. I don’t care if black is “out”, I will continue to wear it and love it.

Are you kidding me!!!!???? I’ve been wearing RED for the entire 2006, what does she know about nails??????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!
Red is OVER for me, although I haven’t tried black yet. I hate when I’m always the opposite of the “trend”.
