Wednesday in Chelsea, Massachusetts, 53-year-old Margaret Christie was arrested for wearing orange nail polish! (And also robbing a bank.)
Christie walked into a Sovereign Bank in Chelsea at 9:45 am, and handed the teller a note, demanding money. She got $450 and took off -- but the teller had noticed her "bright burnt orange nail polish."
A nearby construction worker saw the nails driving a car, took down her license plate number, and she was apprehended! Because wearing orange nail polish is a crime. And so is robbing a bank.
Seriously, we don't recommend orange nail polish. It's unflattering on almost every skin tone. Blech. At least it will match her outfit in jail. How very Law & Order!
She could have gotten away for under $2 by stashing a bottle of Wet & Wild in her car. Now that's a lesson we can all take away with us.
Been-there red? Played-out pink? We think not! The trendiest celebs are rocking daring hues on their digits – think inky black, sunny yellow, turquoise, and chocolate brown. "The right polish can be as transformative as a change in hair color or a new lipstick," says hair and makeup guru Robin Narvaez of Salon Eliut Rivera in New York City. But you can't be shy! These polishes are pure va-va-voom!

These days, The City star Whitney Port has become a trend-setter extraordinaire, so be on the lookout for turquoise nails. Keep your other makeup light and neutral and make sure nails are super short and square – long, turquoise talons are a definite no-no.
