    ……….Nail polish is a magical liquid that feminizes people. I have wanted to have nail polish since I was a child. The small brilliant vials would immediately catch my eyes when I walked into a cosmetic store. Varied nail polishes stood on the shelf, spreading out the female scent. I would enjoy watching young women get their nails painted; magically, the ordinary student girls would become charming women when they had new color on their nails. They looked so elegant, mature, and confident with their newly painted nails; there was a soft and feminized feeling in their eyes and smiles. From then on, I was deeply attracted by the power of nail polish.

    One of my hobbies is to collect nail polish. Each polish has its own characteristic; different colors bring me distinct feelings. When I paint different colors on my nails, my personality changes a little as well. Nail polish evokes emotions deep in my heart.

    Baby pink is a color for an adolescent girl who’s between a child and an adult; 50% girl and 50% woman, just like the color of rose buds getting ready to burst. Baby pink is my first choice to start my nail polishing life. Soft pink evokes my feminized heart and I feel like I’m a lady standing in a green house with warm sunshine.

    An elegant lady can’t live without brown sugar color painted on her nails. The color of brown sugar brings me confidence and makes me feel elegant. I imagine myself as a mature office lady sitting in a coffee shop, having a cup of cappuccino while listening to some jazz and enjoying the relaxing moment.

    Passion red is a symbol of a wild heart. If you close your eyes, you can hear the heavy heart beats. A woman usually wears red nail polish on to show her ardor hid in the deep mind when she has a date or wants to attract someone. Red nail polish makes both men and women pay attention, just like a charming blooming flower.

    Some women like to keep secrets; they are clever, graceful but mysterious at the same time. The color of magical purple is like a woman hiding in the fog, staring at the outside world, keeping silent and hiding her secret in her beautiful smile.

    Fresh green recalls the memories of a teenager. The memories taste like a lime, sweet and sour. The lime green represents the passion of first love for a shy girl. She hides beyond the window to peek at the boy she loves, her feelings like eating a lime: a little sweet to know his life, but sour because she can’t express her emotions.
