And I found this one:
|Mink Muffs by Essie|
And then I found this one:
|Imported Bubbly by Essie|
But neither of those seemed quite right. So I kept searching until I found something along the same lines as a neutral but more edgy. (Also as a side note, do not go nail polish shopping with your mother. We literally spent 30 minutes in front of the nail polish wall at Tar-jay and she kept giving me hooker blues and crazy greens. Bless her heart for trying but I am neither a hooker nor a leprechaun.) Anywho, finally I picked a shade. Do you want to see? I know the suspense is killing you. Here it goes...
Not too shabby right? It's called #370 Commander in Chic by Sally Hansen.
At first I tried it on my toes because I figured if it looked bad at least I could cover them up with shoes but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it so I took a chance and tried it on my fingers.
Please excuse my freaky-weird toes. Matt likes to call them Flinstone feet. Isn't he a sweetheart?
I have worn shades of grey before, but this one has more lavender in it (can't really tell on my nails but more so when it's in the bottle) so I felt like it wouldn't look so stupid. And you know what? I actually feel kind of cool. Sort of dorky, I know, but I have always felt like I wasn't hip enough to pull off a shade like this. But after staring at my fingers and toes, I know that it's untrue. I totes can pull it off with the right color. Thanks Sally!
Oh, and of course I had to buy one other color because I felt like I was on a role with good nail polish choices.
It's called Fiji by Essie and I just couldn't resist.
Old habits die hard.
