I know that I am constantly falling in love with things. New phones, photography things, food...but this is a new love.
I have found the perfect toenail polish.
For about three years now I have been completely faithful to OPI's Midnight in Moscow. It's the perfect black without being black. That makes sense, don't worry. I strayed a few times, but always came back.
My friend Karmen gave me the best tip a few years ago. Own the color you get when you go for a pedicure. That way if you get a chip before you're ready to go back you can fix it yourself. That tip has saved me so many times.
I had forgotten to take my perfect shade a few months before the San Francisco half marathon so I picked a pretty purple. I loved it. It was so TNT purple. When I went back for my pre-trip pedicure I picked what I thought was the same color and it turned out pink. Bright pink. Luckily our Mitchell's Angels shirt were pink so it all worked.
Since then I haven't had a pedicure. I'm not in training so I can't justify it. My feet look bad, yes, but that doesn't matter. Well, I found a way to make it justifiable. When you put your feet into bed at night and slip them under the sheets...and the sheets go with them...it's time. Luckily I started training for my next half marathon a week later.
In indoor light it looks brown. In outdoor light it looks purple. And in direct light it sparkles.
Hello perfect color!
I'm thinking it's time for another pedicure:c)
And in case you are wondering, I believe it's China Glaze. I'm pretty sure that's the only brand they have at my place.
Go forth, paint!
