So what if it is summer and I wanna wear some nude nails? LOL I did my nails Saturday while I was “roughing it” with the boys and naturally it looked like poo this morning… and I HAD to have a Mani Monday so I cleaned my nails off before work (haphazardly) and grabbed the first thing that I saw in my stash as I was on my way out the door. Just happened to be a nakey color.
I am happy that this is the one that I chose because I have had it for months (since around Valentine’s Day) and I had never even swatched it. It is a nice pretty rosy brownish pink. I haven’t really gone to pick it up because I have been playing with so many bright colors or holos…. nudes sort of take the back burner during the warmer months.
It is a nice nude color that works with my skin-tone quite well. I feel like lots of people could actually pull this off because of the pinky tones in it. It is also very easy to work with. Beautiful creme finish that isn’t goopy at all. This is 3 coats but I could have stopped after two.
I know that my cuticles have nail polish on them, but I seriously did this at work! :) Don’t judge meeeee! See the scar on my middle finger? Quick story… I was waiting tables around the age of 19 and if you have ever waited tables you will know that there are “side duties” you are responsible for and you can’t leave until they are done. Well I was getting off of a lunch shift and I had forgotten all about my side duties and was ready to go see a movie with a friend…
Then it dawned on me that I had to cut a whole pan of lemons for the bar.. URGGHHH!!! I HATE CUTTING LEMONS! You are supposed to wear a metal glove to protect your hand but it is sooo obnoxious and was always in the way so I NATURALLY think I am Super Woman and don’t wear it. I got going and started moving through the activity really fast and ***SLICE***!! I sliced my finger REALLLLY good… and you can imagine how that felt with the lemon juice everywhere…. LUCKILY it was my next to last lemon and I didn’t contaminate anything with my blood… just the lemon I was currently cutting… I trashed that cleaned my finger really good but that is a scar that will last forever because it was super deep. Anyway, that is a lesson that was well learned.
