Manicure Monday: A Pink Party
This past weekend started on a pretty crappy note, and when it came time to paint my nails, I wanted something cheerful and happy. Long story short, I had something mapped out in my head, a perfectly painted picture of the future, and when it didn't come true I was angry.
The good thing is, a weekend of donuts, movies, eating out, football, some light shopping, and most importantly spending some quality time with the mister, cured my Friday ailments! Throw in my first Pumpkin Spiced Latte (#psl) of the season, and it was a perfect weekend.
I stood at my nail polish rack for 5-10 minutes on Saturday trying to pick out a color to cheer me up, and went with an old standby pink, Chanel Organdy. I picked this up in 2007 when I was working for Lord & Taylor when I saw it on a coworker and fell in love with it. To this day it's formula and consistency has stayed the same, cheering me up with it's beautiful, cheery pink self!
Looking back I would have painted my accent nail black first before the glitter, so you can see there was a method to my madness. The pink glitter in Wet n' Wild's 'Correction Tape' is the same shade as Organdy, but once applied over, it disappears. Here's a bottle shot to show you what I'm talking about:
I don't know how much this pink polish contributed to cheering me up this weekend, but most manicures bring a smile to my face when I catch a glimpse of my nails.
Do you have a shade of polish that cheers you up when you see it on your nails or toes?
