Would You Wear These Checkerboard Nails?

I've been thinking about these glue-on
Edge nails ($5.99) for a good half-hour now, and I find myself at a loss for words. On the one hand, the teenage punk rocker inside me is thinking, "Awesome! These are totally going to match my Manic Panic hair at Warped Tour."

But the grown-up Bella—the Bella who's more conservative with her nail choices but is seriously not an old fogey—is wondering whether anyone could pull these off. Gwen Stefani, maybe? She does like ska, after all, and checkerboard is that music genre's de facto pattern. But if I saw these on Gwen, I'd probably file it in my Crazy Gwen Styles folder, not my Inspirational Gwen Styles folder. What do you think? Can these ever work?

They sound fun just for a day or few. Definitely only if you're in the right company though. No NASCAR!

I don't know. They're kinda cute, but I don't know if I could pull that off.

Nice to have for a couple of days, after that, when it gets chipped then it aint nice anymore.

Haha, I like that last comment about NASCAR fans. It scares me to think that might give some people ideas, though.

If you are one of those girls who worships NASCAR, you can pull this off!

I hate overdone nails, but I might wear those to a car race. For the duration of the event only. Because sometimes, you just have to have a sense of humor and a little fun.

I hate those nails..however, I love nail, you might want to try konad stamping nail art..take a look at their website's fun and u'll need a lil' bit of practice stamping the design to ur nail, but other than that, it's fun and there're so many cute designs! ^^

I was considering buying these the other day, but decided against it because my job is hands on & they would continually fall off.

I'm a rocker chick at heart so these are right up my alley. I'd try to wear them to a concert or something equally as fun and laid back.

I think they are cool if you are dressing up with a costume or like someone said if you are into that 50's vibe thing --- not for everyday though. Little tacky.
