Me: Hey babe, can I borrow your phone?
Him: mumble mumble pick the red one, it's better.
Me: *laughs* what?
Him: you were asking about colors, the red one is better.
Me: I asked if I could borrow your phone.
Him: Oh. yeah.
Me: Where is it?
Him: What? You asked about colors...
Me: No, I need your phone.
Him: What for?
Me: Pictures for my blog
Him: You don't need to take pictures *rolls over and stops responding to me*
Gotta love half asleep conversations. My future mother in law once said "we have a bunny problem" in her sleep.
Anyway! So I get a new camera in about 30 days, so I chose to use my camera phone instead. It's old...so sorry if the pictures suck. But I wanted to talk about the polish that started my obsession with polish.
Essie Cocktail bling. I had already had a few polishes, I think I had a few from the Muppets Collection, and China Glaze For Audrey, among other drugstore polishes. But I wasn't full on into painting my nails. Then, on break at work I saw an ad for the Cocktail Bling collection, and I went into full on hunt mode. I searched high and low for this polish, and when I found it, it was love. I bought nearly the whole collection (except Brooch the Subject and Size Matters) and I've been obsessed ever since.
I still love this color, it's not my favorite, but I love it. It goes perfectly with my skin tone, making me look less red, and less tan. I'm weird...I like looking pale. I wish my skin was paler actually. It's a perfect shade of grey-blue. Above is 2 coats plus topcoat.
Now, I invite all of you to email me YOUR "polish that started it all" and a little blurb and I would like to do a series of guest posts chronicling our decent into obsession. If you have any friends who collect polish, have them send it to me! I want hundreds of these things!!! ok...maybe not...but the more merrier!
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I thank you, and have a great day.
