Black Snake and Black Manicure

Every two weeks in the chair

Clip and file without a care

Choose your color from so many

Every two weeks a pretty penny


Every two weeks without fail

Polish placed upon each nail

Beautiful hands a professional must

Whip out the plastic what’s your fuss


Every two weeks schedule your time

Infrared lamps set the polish fine

Today I choose black, what a site

The Gothic look, a financial bite

    Short and sweet. For a while I thought that the snake was getting a make over. I have always liked black nail polish, it’s pretty much the only nail polish I can bear on my nails. Too bad the smell of nail polish makes me gag. Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it & write. 🙂
