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.

Okay seriously, I have to agree, because last time I checked, certain things never go out of style; a little black dress, jeans, long coats, and red nailpolish. And the black thing, give me a break, half of the women that wore black nail polish this season are the same chicks that make fun of goths for being weird.

I have never worn the black on my nails. It looks horrible!! Red is much better than black. Any color is better!!

for the past few months i have been wearing OPI’s “Lincoln Park After Dark” which is a deep plum so it seems almost black but recently i had the urge to try a red/wine color. to me it is a big transition just to have color instead of a french manicure on my nails. i love both.

Well I really do not get this, either PEOPLE had nothing else to write about or the public is obsessed with “stars” and celebs. My point is, its freakin nail polish, who cares? Its sad enough some people take this kinda of crap seriously, I mean god forbid if she starts wearing pink…good lord.
