“I’m Wired” and “High Maintenance”
If I’ve have a lot of caffeine I might be referred to as “wired” and “high maintenance”, but today I’m talking about my nail polish! Hee hee. My Mom treated me to these two gorgeous spring-y colours earlier this week. A departure from my repertoire of red, uber-dark, and nude with a dash of gold.
My digits are displaying “I’m Wired” (right) and I seriously couldn’t stop staring at my hands while I snacked on some delicious honeydew melon. The pale green and “electric peach” (as the Sephora website describes the nailpolish) was a mesmerizing combination. Seriously, I stared like a zombie while my hand traveled from my plate to my mouth.
Can we just go on a bit of a tangent here and talk about honeydew melon? It’s my current obsession. Which is weird because I’ve often though of it as fruit salad “filler”, you know, the fruit you begrudgingly eat while foraging for the good stuff…strawberries, kiwi, grapes…
Ok, back to the polish. Both my bestie and sister-in-law were rocking awesome orangey-red toes this passed weekend, so I couldn’t help jumping on the band wagon with “High Maintenance” (left). Since I’m not big on a lot of bright colours in my wardrobe, accessories and nail polish are the perfect way for me to inject some cheerfully-bright goodness.
Oh, I almost forgot to ask you for advice! I have the driest hands EVER. I told Mr. that I want to chop them off I’m that annoyed by their sandpaper-esque-ness. Does anyone have any miracle cures to share? Between preparing a million meals and changing a million diapers, I’m can’t avoid washing my hands all day which I know is drying. Recently I bucked up for some L’Occitane hand cream but I’m feeling rather underwhelmed by the results.
