*taps fingers, stares at feet*
Well, I do have toenails. They are currently pink. Kind of a peachy, dark pink that goes fairly well with my white sandals and my black sandals, and passably well with my brown sandals. (I don't wear the brown ones much anyway.)
I'm thinking of going dark red on the toes next time. You know, that really, really dark red that almost looks black? Like blood spilled on asphalt.
Hmm. Blood on asphalt...blood on asphalt...or maybe blood on dark stone pavers in the backyard of a NYC brownstone? Yeah, that could work.
Or blood spreading in a growing, irregular circle on the bodice of a white sundress, dripping onto the pavers...near an outdoor pond...with a fake grotto!
Yeah, that's it. And a body half-in, half-out of the small, cave-like indentation in the rock wall. The sounds of the party inside are muffled by the artificial waterfall, and...
Never mind toenails. I have a scene to write!
