Red Nail Varnish?

Slightly bizarre, but I've just watched the Morrissey Live in Dallas DVD, and I could swear there was a point where he put his hands close to the mic, and I could see red nail varnish on both thumbs but not on the fingers?:eek: Maybe I'm going mad... Or maybe it symbolises something? I have no idea.. :confused: :confused:

Oh I've long, long ago abandoned any attempts at answering 'why ?' Morrissey does anything, from elastoplasts on his brow/nipple through fake cuts to crotch foliage to Eurovision obsession, it is all just the wonderful world of Morrissey !
In this particular instance I recall that in an NME interview at the start of the 'Kill Uncle' tour he stated that his perfect audience would consist of skinheads wearing magenta nail varnish. I also have a more vague recollection of reading somewhere that, as previously noted by Danny, it was a nod to Marc Bolan.
Kind regards,
joe.

Indeed!

The mystery for me is all part of my enjoyment.

The hearing aid, the 'Marry Me' :D
