I have to admit, I have always been kind of a tomboy and not very girly. I was never into skirts or dresses (and even now, the one skirt I wear has shorts underneath it. And no, it’s not a skort!) I do my makeup, but its very minimal. I don’t like getting dressed up – I’m good in pants and a t-shirt. I would rather wear flip flops than heels (besides prom, I have never worn heels). I’m just not a girly girl. But…
…there are two things I cannot live without – purses and nail polish!
I have a slight purse addiction that I have to keep alive and as for the nail polish…
…I have very naturally long growing nails. I always have. People say it’s because I consume so much milk (the vitamin E). It may be, but all I know is that I have naturally long growing nails that I like to make sure look nice.
Hence, I have a large collection of nail polish and I could not, not partake in the Spring Polish Swap with Mrs. AOK A Work in Progress, The Real Housewife of Caroline County, and MrsTee Love Life Laughter.
I received my polish first (because I’m a procrastinator like that).
My partner was Stephanie at “So, I’ve been thinking…” (I love that blog name by the way!)
I have to admit (and for the record, she claimed it first in her card) that I wasn’t sure about the color.
It’s just kind of this awkward color. It’s gray, but not gray. It’s sort of got a pinkish tint, but a purple tint, but gray, but not gray. I really wasn’t sure what to think.
I tried it on immediately and I have to admit, I liked it. I liked it alot, but was I was still kind of in awe of it and wasn’t sure what to make of it. (PS: It is called Gray-t Escape in case you were wondering.)
Last weekend, I decided to do my nails all pretty (and did Buggy’s) and decided to do the entire hand (rather than two fingers) to really give the color a try. (Don’t mind the fact that I’m hand modeling a product – focus on the nails!)
I love it!
I am very much a pink girl, but I think this might be my new favorite color! Thank you so much Stephanie for introducing me to a new color (and fashion trend!)
If you are wondering what I sent Stephanie, head on over to her blog and see what Buggy and Buddy picked out for her!
And be sure to head over to Mrs AOK’s blog. She not only has a link up of the other bloggers and their nail polish colors, but they have started a Pinterest board so you can find a new color for yourself PLUS they are hosting a giveaway for a $25 Sephora gift card plus manicure goodies!
