  1. Where have all these amazing nail colors gone? These colors were so varied, age inclusive and went from work to play in nothing less than elegant.

    Colors now are flat, colors are too young and not work appropriate for higher level professions as were the colors of the 80’s & 90’s.

    I would gladly buy them is they’re available as would many women I know.

    Thank you;
