"What Women Want"

October 8, 2012

I want to paint my nails a million different colors,
I want a different color to express every emotion in my body
I want to walk around embracing my nail colors
I don’t want to worry about what other people think about my nails
I want my nails to catch everyone’s attention
and I want them to appreciate the colors I chose
I want my nails to make me more noticeable
I want to stand out
I want to be different when I walk around with my nails
I hope for my nails to start a new trend
for people to follow in my footsteps
so I can feel as if I started something amazing
I can always appreciate my nails
that I can change colors whenever I want.
