Tips and Toes

Of all that is unholy in prep-for-vacation planning, I somehow went away on the cruise without getting a manicure and pedicure.

Side note: Men readers (hello! I heart you!), I know you claim you don't notice such things, but honestly, I KNOW you notice when a gal has either really pretty looking hands and feet, or really sad looking hands and feet. So just entertain me on this.

Pathetically, I was one of the latter this past week, showing off my almost-reverse French pedicure with the pink polish so grown out. Proof:



I am so ashamed. I will never again fail to book in such an appointment before a social gathering.

So this week, ready to jump into Fall with every part of my fashion being, I sat down and gave myself a mani/pedi. I would have loved to have gone to the salon to get it professionally done, of course, but I am choosing to allot that $40 to something much more worthy this week (what? I think food and beverages out on the town are much more deserving).

So I ended up with this super hot polish job -- gun-metal gray!



I have used this polish before (some cheap store-brand knockoff) and totally forgot that it bubbles up once it's on. Boo! Proof that buying cheap doesn't always pay off, I guess ...

So as a result, I will be keeping an eye out to buy these replacements very, very soon, because gray is back again as a definite hit of a nail color for the fall and winter. Forget the safe reds and purples. Be daring and go gray!

Ohhh this makes me want to redo my nails... I just did them in Essie's Wicked, but I have a gunmetal gray that I haven't worn since last Fall.
P.S. I think it's too funny that we both posted about polish this week!! xoxo

Lauren - nail polish has def been the post du jour this month! :) That Wicked color is fab - I love finding new colors to use!

And C - sadly I had to look up GTL (Gym, Tan, Laundry - The Situation's line on Jersey Shore, for those of you who also didn't know ha). You are soooo funny :P But the Great Pumpkin picture is awesome. I will think about it ...
