red majority

Nothing like scarlet nails* to add a little va-va-voom to a boring workday.

Fridays, always dress-down/blue jeans day at the library, is also my empty holster protest day. No one ever notices.

* the polish is Orly Naughty (Rly. It's the closest I could come to a librarian-themed red.)

Wow. Just wow.

Just wait Breda. You're going to see an influx of hand fetish folks making their way here via Google.

As for the holster. Everyone probably either doesn't see it or just assumes it's a cell-phone holder. You should strap on a Blackhawk Serpa and see if anyone notices.

Breda said...

wow what, alan?

mike w - I just think no one ever looks specifically at anyone else's waists.

Crucis said...

Exactly what kind of holster do you use? I carry a S&W 442 J-frame in a pocket holster.

Wai said...

Hey...what pocketknife is that?????

Breda said...

The pocketknife is a Gerber Paraframe and the holster is a JBP sleeping dog holster.

I didn't vote for that color, but the results are completely satisfactory.

Good show!

Gerber Paraframe, eh? I carry a Benchmade AFCK. (No longer made.) I'll have to take a gander at the Paraframe.

Aw... I was waiting for vampy red :-) Looks good though! Interesting place to carry your knife, most folks I know favor the back edge of the pocket.

Great Shot!

You are loaded with Feminine Tacticool-hawtness!

My knife of choice is a Kershaw Liner-lock. Sadly they don't make them anymore. People seem to be crazy about the Ken Onion line, but I still prefer the liner.

awesome

lil' short for proper back-scratchin' but that's just my personal bias.

Breda said...

NFO - I wear the knife there because it's the most comfortable place; it kind of sits in the curve of the hip, you know? (and the polish is darker in real life. I think the flash makes it look more red)

Perfect look.
Glad I voted red.

Sexay!

It looks sharp :)

No, I think they DO look at your waist. Very nice. What a sexy gun chick!

Awesome nails. Nice waist too.
I also carry the para. Mine has been through a fire and still works great.

Old NFO said...

Understood Breda.

CZ Nash said...

Even though gunmetal gray is spectacular, you just can't go wrong with a little hot red once in a while.

Gregg said...

Can't go wrong with red nails, or gerber knives.

Though, I don't paint my nails and carry a gerber applegate-fairbairn covert folder.

Went to a steakhouse for dinner with the Mom last week, and a waitress was wearing a knife clipped inside her pocket like that. She was hot, too, but working a different section, so I never got to talk to her ( & ask her what kind of knife) before we left. :-(
Oh well, I liked the food, so I guess I'll just have to go back, eh?
