Ruby Tuesday #29: Extreme Specialization


"That's Pretty Specific"
Cary, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

My first thought when I saw this sign from the road was "WTF??". My second thought was "That's a pretty narrow specialization!" But I finally got around to thinking, "What a perfect Ruby Tuesday photo!"Violence Unsilenced

I guess a styling salon called Red Hair would be far more specialized.

If you've ever noticed, most women paint their nails some shade of red, from pastels to bright red, to everything in-between.

And if that's the type of place you need a gas mask to walk into, no thank you! :-)

That's a great name for a nail salon, Mojo! And a great photo for a post. I have a permanent French Manicure which is that manicure you see around that has white tips and clear nail beds... know what I mean? Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

I am not a manicure/pedicure person as I only hold hands and or feet with people I really like....but it is a good RT photo...

Leora said...

Better than black nails. Though I've seen women with those.

Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Ralph said...

I wonder if Lowes knows about stylish building materials like these nails??

ilanadavita said...

Nicely spotted. Great choice for RT.

Robin said...

Perfect shot for Ruby Tuesday!

I wonder if they have to refer out if you want pink...

Rita said...

I agree, great RT post. I once read a study that said most men prefer red nails on women. And, look at how much money is spent keeping them happy.

Columbo said...

Great posting for RT. The only thing they could have had was a RED sign. Have a great Ruby Tuesday, Mojo.

I've gone a long way till I learned American short for cursing.
Made it today!
But "Red nails"? First I thought of was the carpenter's nails, the metal ones, not the blue.

Liked the picture, liked the cultural and lingual challenge.

Red long nails scratching the walls in the dead of the night making screeching noises that make your hair stand.... those were my first thoughts when I saw your picture!

I watched too much horror shows!!

My internet access was ready yesterday, I've changed the wordings of the comment *wink*

Eaton Bennett said...

Good choice for Ruby Tuesday! I actually used to love the smell of the nail salon! I think it was because it was the one girly thing I ever did - it was my time to just relax. But I never had them painted red, except at Christmas time.

I like it. "Red Nails" is kinda catchy. We have a nail place in my neighborhood that calls itself,
"Nail Sparty". I always wonder if they meant to say, "Nails Party!"

Dianne said...

the store itself doesn't look like a nail salon, wouldn't it be hilarious if it wasn't

great shot

ROSIDAH said...

So it's all about perspective ;). Great photo and theme. Best wishes.

spiCes said...

my ruby move

Amber Star said...

Nice post, but is there a pink nails place around there anywhere?
:)

Catherine said...

Absolutly not surprised by this name. In France, nail varnish is also called "Rouge à ongles" (Red for nails).
What is fantatstic is to change the Ruby Tuesday rules.
Well-done, Mojo. Very original. I like your way to play the game.

Shinade said...

Great job Mojo!! you have red brick and also the word red. What a great find!!

Happy RT:-)

Carletta said...

So, can you just get Red Nails?
I'm so laughing at Ralph's comment.

My Ruby Tuesday is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures.

Annie said...

Hi Jazz. Great pic. Reminds me of that Conan the Barbarian book - Red Nails.

I took you at your word. Poncho is reappearing, this time at Ruby Tuesday. Thanks for the suggestion.

Great picture... I was confused and posted green today... LOL

I love the Red Nail Drop Zone...hahaha

Thanks for sharing..

Lil Bit said...

I'm amazed how many of those nail places are in business... I mean, for real - are THAT many women getting their nails done to support THAT many of these places? Hmm, evidently so, I guess. Waste of money, IMO.
Odd name for one, too.
