Found It! Michelle Obama's Gray Nail Polish

Michelle Obama at the DNC
After Tuesday night's Democratic National Convention speech, first lady Michelle Obama set Twitter on fire with her lavender/gray nails, with people trying to guess which shade and brand she was wearing. Michelle Obama's nails were like an accessory to her simple Tracy Reese/J. Crew ensemble.

A Wall Street Journal reporter has confirmed that the nail polish is Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Color Gel in "Vogue." Artistic Nail Design's U.S. headquarters has been flooded with requests from salons interested in stocking this color. They told Yahoo Shine, "we've seen a 90% increase in calls for this color alone. We currently have around 1,000 bottles in stock and will be getting stock up to at least 5,000 to prepare for the influx of order that we are receiving."

Mad frenzy to locate her nail polish??? Sick of being played like this. This is not a positive portrayal of women. We do have brains, and I can guarentee there was no mad frenzy to locate her "shade of gray" nail polish. Pleeezzz!

Ugly nails -- Ugly dress - worst dressed prize winner, beginning with that hideous dress she wore for Obama's inauguration.   And, her arms may be toned, but she has a big ****.  Let's get on with some real fashion about someone we care about.

Get a grip!  This is important!  What is important is that we need to get back to God and the principles that our great nation was founded on.   See the movie "Monumental:  In Search of America's Treasure" and "The Last Ounce of Courage" for how and why our country is so exceptional and blessed by God and how in this present day we are losing our freedoms one by one and most people aren't even aware of it.
