It was the f-bomb heard 'round the world. Or at least it was for those who couldn't avoid being directed to take a closer look at the fingernails of actress Lindsay Lohan, whose colorful manicure held a colorful message: "Fuck You."

Of course, Lohan was just kidding. Right? "In a Twitter reply to one of her friends, Lohan wrote: didn't we do our nails as a joke with our friend dc? It had nothing to do w/court. it's an airbrush design from a stencil xx,'" according to the Vancouver Sun.

Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, who sat next to her sobbing client in court on Tuesday when the former teen starlet was sentenced to 90 days in jail on two 2007 DUI charges, defended her client for what turned out to be the last time, according to E! Online:

"The fact is, the words could barely be seen by the naked eye. That a courtroom camera, purportedly there to accurately chronicle the proceedings, would use a telephoto lens to zoom in as it did to Ms. Lohan's fingernail is a commentary on the entire issue."

Holley then resigned her post as Lohan's attorney. TMZ speculates Holley's resignation stems from Lohan's wish to appeal and declaration to a friend that she's "not going to jail." Holley has been replaced by Tiffany Feder-Cohen.
