What does it mean when people wear a different color nail polish on their ring finger?
I'm starting to see this a lot. People will wear a brightly colored nail polish on their ring finger. It's usually a deep color like black, super red, or hot pink. Does the choice of color have a meaning? Does the choice of finger have a meaning? Is it a fashion statement? A fad? What do you think?

I have been wearing nail polish (both fingers & toes) for about five years now. Sometimes I have a salon do my nails, but most of the time I paint my nails. My heart flutters everytime I have a lady do...
