So I just spoke to a friend of mine who lives in Calgary. She told me that she wore dark purple nail polish last weekend and her parents noticed and asked if she was becoming “goth”.
Now, nothing wrong with the story, except that she’s trying dark nail polish now? Didn’t the trend start over 2 years ago? I mean, I’ve gotten bored of Lincoln Park After Dark and Lincoln Park After Midnight, but I still have at least 4 very dark blue or purple nail polishes on my dresser at right this moment. Also, from what I understand Calgary is an up and coming city with a huge population of young people – surely they must have wanted to pick up on the trend at the same time as Torontonians did.
What do you guys think? In the day of the Internet, do trends still travel slow to smaller cities?
