I love to paint my nails. Rarely will you ever see me without polish on my nails. I have a shoebox sized tupperware container of my nail polishes. Most I have bought, other given to me. Some I "borrowed" from my mom and never gave them back (sorry Momma). I have staple colors that I like to use, mostly from O.P.I. Looooove O.P.I. Not only do they have fun colors, but, woooo, those names! During the winter I rock out with "I'm Not Really a Waitress" or "Lincoln Park at Midnight". The fall usually has me showing that I'm "Smokin' in Havana". When it comes to my summer color, I have been a loyal "Melon of Troy" wearer for at least 3 years. This past May I finally had to retire my bottle because I couldn't scrape anymore out. (Side note: that was the first time I've ever actually seen an empty nail polish bottle. Normally I just throw them out when they get all goopy.)
Anyway, I was in Target yesterday stocking up on last minute needs for our OBX vacation, when I decided to meander through the cosmetics aisle.
I say that like I stumbled upon the cosmetics aisle and was all "Oh my... what do we have here?" Let's be honest- I grabbed my basket and made a bee line towards the L'Oreal and Maybelline. I don't flirt when it comes to Target. I'm direct.
I took my last polish off on Tueday but hadn't decided on what I wanted to put on next. I wanted to get a new, fun color to wear to OBX - I was thinking hot pink. Something that just screamed Elle Woods from Legally Blonde. However, when I made it to the O.P.I section I noticed something. There, standing by itself, was one bottle left of "Melon of Troy".
Oh happy day!
I didn't even think twice about dropping that little bottle of happiness in my basket. As soon as I got into work today I painted my nails, and I'm a much happier person.
So how about you ladies? Any fav polish that makes you feel a little sassier??
Always and Forever,
