Nail of the Week!

So, recently I have developed a "wee" obsession with nail polish. Mostly this was fueled by my friend Jules, who is quite the makeup junkie. Thanks to her, I have been going BOLDER and BRIGHTER with the polish. Even daring to wear colors I never would before, like green and blue. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of my very fashionable and very funky blue manicure! No worries though, because I LOVE the color and have never gotten so many compliments on my nails in my life! So when I do them again, I will take a picture right away.

This weekend, in between movie watching, and reading (I will review it later as it is an intriguing book), and knitting on the Einstein sweater, I did a nail touch up. This color is called "Watermelon Rind". Perfect for the dog days of August although I will admit, it is NOT the color I expected. To me, it looks teal. On the nail it is green. Albeit a blueish green but not the teal I was expecting. I was doubtful if I really liked it, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. Definitely will be nice in the spring.

Now I just need to wait for the UPS truck to bring me my latest acquisition of Nubar polish. (They were having a sale last weekend!) Yay for holographic nail enamel!

Hi Kathy! Yes, in full sunlight it does have a "tealish" look but it looks emerald green. Think Dorothy and OZ. I am starting to like it....alot......
