With my last Nail Files post I mentioned that I had my fab friend Sherry on a Dior polish mission at Nordstrom. And she delivered. And oh yeah, I think I am in love with this polish. Behold, Dior Lemon Balm #703. It is available exclusively at Nordstrom and it is quite possibly the most perfect color (for me) I have ever seen. I love that it's darker and moodier, but not almost-black. It's a shimmery, plum-y, taupe-y confection and um, I actually can't stop staring at my toes. (Fab friend Sherry borrowed it on the way to her pedi tonight, and it's totally fab on her, too.) Here's my picture of it:
Trust me, it's way more gorgeous in person. If you want to see fantastic swatches, check out alllacqueredup.com - she is a polish genius, and also a polish-photographing whiz. And her blog is my go-to, 1st stop source on all matters nail-related.
Can't wait to toss it on my fingers as well (currently sporting OPI At First Sight), but I'm not quite mentally ready for dark fingers yet. Give me another week, hehehe. Of course, I still have to IRL test OPI Here Today Aragon Tomorrow and Essie Chinchilly. But that likely won't happen until this peels off my toes.
And here's my you've-already-seen-it outfit for the day. Black knit dress from ATL, black sandals, simple stud earrings. But I added the new Cocteau tote and the spring daisy Jackie to freshen it up and loved them with it....but I just didn't get them in the picture. One of these days I'll actually take pics with bags and cardis and all that to show you that it does get more interesting...just not today.
It was 97 degrees here today, with a heat index above 100, so it was perfect for an easy knit sundress. We picked up Lucy at the kennel this morning and she always sheds upon coming home, so a black outfit was the right choice. And E had her 7-year check up today (she grew 4 inches this year!), so a cardi was a must as well.
I have to say that I am really loving this spring daisy shade. I feel like it makes everything look a little fresher and more interesting since it's an unusual shade of yellow. I will probably look like death in it in the middle of winter...but I'll be wearing way heavier sweaters then, so no worries! And I am also love love loving the Cocteau tote. I highly recommend. The laminated canvas is just plain fun. (anyone seen a good pic for Polyvore, by the way?)
