I tuned into a Diamonique show and was so distracted by long black and gold nail polish. I've noticed this on makeup and/or jewelry shows where there are tight camera shots on the products. 

 

Of course, I quickly hit the remote to change the channel. Anyone else put off by these extreme nail colors?

While I love to see a manicured hand during jewelry presentations or any presentations for that matter,  I simply don't understand why the extreme pointy ones with obnoxious nail polish are allowed on air.  There should be some kind of protocol in place.

I am not put off by host nails. Nail art very popular. I never wear polish but don't let what other people wear on their nails trouble me.

Anything that distracts from the product being presented should be banned.

pointy, gold, and black....ghoulish.  For a Halloween party it might be appropriate.

I've posted about how distracting and annoying this "nail art" can be when items are being presented on air on a shopping channel with close-ups, etc. My post was considered unkind. QVC is not interested.

Does this happen on HSN or QVC only? I've never watched HSN so wouldn't know.

No, it doesn't bother me at all.

 

When I grew up I had an Aunt that was critical of most new fashions and make-up trends.  I swore I would never be like that.

 

It is normal for our youth to try different things out of our mature comfort zone.  

It doesn't hurt anything, so I just let it go.

Personally, I'm just not a fan of super long pointy nails and do find it distracting as well.
