So Tacky It's Good
The past few weeks, I was very sneakily away to Southwest Florida and The Bahamas for a 50th birthday celebration followed by some odds and ends we had to take care of for our Florida property. Didn't even know I was gone, did you?
Be that as it may, because I wasn't working, I felt the urge to paint my nails. While I am a huge fan of all manner of wacky polish on my toes, I generally dislike crazy polish on my fingers, opting for neutral colors, or maybe a deep red if I'm feeling extra-fancy. Usually I only last about a day with polish on my nails before it makes me antsy, or I just go digging around in the dirt and ruin it.
I'm not sure what made me pick up this taupey-pink sparkle polish, but I thought I'd give it a go. Something different and fun, and okay..completely OTT tacky in a teenaged bubblegum-perfume-wearing sort of way.
Turns out, I kinda love it. I think it's the color I chose, but it actually came out much more subtle that I would have thought. Added bonus: it stays on really, really well - through boogie boarding and open toed shoes for three straight weeks. Even when it did chip slightly, it wasn't very noticeable. I guess for people like me who can't keep polish looking good for more than a day, adhering tiny bits of metallic shrapnel to your fingertips with a clear epoxy is the way forward. Who knew?
