I’ve noticed lately the wide variety of colors from which to choose at the nail salon. Fashion has expanded beyond the usual nudes (my favorite), pinks and reds to every hue of blue, orange, purple, even glitter–any color you could hope for.
But me? I’ve always stayed safe with a nude color on my fingernails and some shade of red on my toenails.
So, tonight, after being tempted for months to try a new color, I painted my toenails PURPLE! Has hell freezed over? Do you see pigs flying?
What do you think?
It took a little getting used to, but it’s growing on me. It reminds me of the song, “Popsicle Toes” by Diana Krall and Michael Franks.
In honor of the World Cup in Brazil, here’s the “old” me, with red toenails, lying on the beach in Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro.
I realize you probably like the beach photo better than the carpet photo, but which color toenails do you like better? Red or purple?
WHAT I LEARNED: Not much to learn with trying a new color, except that I’d rather go to a salon than do it myself. I painted these ten little popsicles myself tonight because I didn’t want to pay $35 to have them done if all I was going to do was come home and take it off. But, I think I’ll leave it on for awhile before I go back to the salon and have oh, maybe a pink put on.
THUMBS UP OR DOWN? I’ll give this experience a thumbs up.
WHAT’S UP FOR TOMORROW: This will be my most daring yet. Hint? It’s been on my bucket list for some time. And…it’s going to take a lot of courage to admit I did it.
