Nail Files - Perfect Monday Polish - "I Vant to Be A-Lone Star"
Oh dreary Monday...well, it's sunny here but so windy and chilly and just...ewww...soggy after a soaking rain yesterday; my backyard is the consistency of a sopping wet sponge. Time to curl up with a cup of hot tea...and maybe a good book or magazine. If I hadn't been too lazy to do my nails last night, this is the polish I would/should be wearing today.
I Vant to Be A-Lone Star by OPI, part of the Spring/Summer Texas Collection. I admit, I wasn't expecting much when I went to the store to see the collection as I definitely tend to skew to OPI's Fall/Winter collections far more than any other. But I actually came home with 2 of the polishes! No pics yet of the green ("Don't Mess with OPI". ummmm, don't worry, I won't) but with St Patty's day coming up, you can bet I will.
As usual...love the name...the pairing of the classic Great Garbo quote from Grand Hotel and Texas...yes, they *do* go together. Ah, who cares, I am totally digging this color. Per OPI, it's a "starry silver-blue." It will be my go-to color this spring when I need a break from the depth of Chanel Black Pearl.
With all lighter colors, I hold my breath before opening the bottle. You never know if you're going to get thick chalkiness or smooth pigment. Totally smooth on this one. I love the color. It's definitely light blue, but it's a softer light blue, because of the silver aspect.
I could see this on a bride's toes as she walks down the aisle - how pretty would that be? (Mind on many things bridal, since my BF Patty set the place/date/time and we got bridesmaid dresses and E's flower girl dress and everything. More on that in future post.)
I've posted pics in 2 different lights...really just 2 different angles next to the windows by the kitchen...to give you a full idea of the color. So pretty. I already told my blue-eyed blonde sister to go out and get it. I don't even think I suggested it, I pretty much told her she better get it. But it will be gorgeous on her.
So if you need your nail polish to send a message...or you just want a little mood pick-me-up...I highly recommend this one.
I am a 39 yo SAH/WAHM. I have 2 wonderful, beautiful, loving children, and a fantastic husband who is a fabulous cook. I am also lucky enough to have a fantastic and flexible job that allows me to work mostly at home and still have enough time to...do everything else that I do - volunteer at school, (start trying to) exercise (more), and shop. And I do love to shop. (see note above about job) But I also love to share what I learn with my friends. So that's why I blog.
