A Few New Things

My plan for today was to post my pedicure for the week. But alas – the photos I took of my toenails ended up being more focused on my hairy toes. Yes, I have hairy toes, that I do shave in summer – but haven’t even thought about it with my feet in socks/shoes and or slippers all winter long. So you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for “toe nail shots” – sans toe hairs that could be all sasquatch-y and “eww!”

Instead, I thought I’d share my latest polish purchases. So without further ado:

Two Sephora by OPI polishes that I just fell in love with – Skinny Jeans (blue) and “Let’s Do Lunch” (beige/coral).Two NARS polishes that I ordered from Sephora as well – I really, really shouldn’t have, because they were $16 each, and I am regretting the decision, though I love the polishes. But what’s done is done – I doubt I’ll do that again. They are “Bohemia” (shimmery pink/green) and “Orgasm” (peach shimmer). I could not get the photos to catch the color for anything, unfortunately - they're a lot more shimmery than they look! Hopefully I’ll regret them less once I see them on my nails…
Finally, two Avon polishes, “Lagoon”, which was one of my favorite colors when I was selling Avon, and “Fuschia”, which is not what I ordered (I ordered “Spring Fling”). Avon polishes aren’t as durable (same basic league as Sinful Colors), but it is a nice formula, and I’m thinking that with a good base/top coat, they’ll still wear well enough for a week. They do have some fabulous colors, like the ever popular “Rave” that I need to get another bottle of. I do wish they’d come out with more new colors…but perhaps they will, since they seem to be redesigning the line (these square bottles are new).

I also got some long birchwood sticks for clean-up, and the Sephora by OPI topcoat that I’m looking forward to trying soon.

Not too bad, all in all…I see a blue and beige trend here for spring – weird!

Great haul!

And congrats on posting toe pics - I don't get what everyone is so scared about??

Curious to hear what you think about those Nars polishes.

Looking forward to seeing swatches of the Nars polishes. Bring on the toe pictures. As long as their clean don't worry about them!
