I don’t follow trends for the most part cause I’m lazy, but I decided to try out what is apparently a hot subtle nail color for spring 2011. Pale, milky pastel colors are in and since I have grown to adore the understated look so much, I decided to try a version of the light, creamy green color that is touted as the new neutral hue for spring. I linked an article frpm hellobeautiful a few weeks ago that had a gave some examples, and I used that as my guide. I decided on a shade from Sally Hansens Xtreme Wear Collection called “Mint Sorbet”.
At first glance, I was like um, no. Definitely not for me. Too pale. Too bland. Too much like dipping my nails into a bottle of Mylanta. I skeptically painted one nail, and was not feeling it. I pressed on though, and applied the polish to all of my nails.
Dare I say I like it? Cause I do. I really do. What do yall think? Is it a color that you would rock, or not?
Hellobeautiful had a post yesterday with that title. The colors they showed were a minty, pale green. Not sure if that is for me. Check out the post here.
“Spring is bursting out all over! All over the meadows and the hills.” That was the beginning of a song we used to sing in music class in fourth grade. I don’t remember most of the song, but those first two lines are playing in my head today as the sunlight streams through my blinds, and the birds sing to me. Yes they are singing to me! At least that’s what I tell myself as I lay in bed smiling as I hear them chirp chirp chirp away. I wonder what they talk about sometimes….
I’m feeling so bright and refreshed, and green is the color for me today.
Makes me want a blended margarita
I did my nails a toned down lime color green earlier in the week, and I decided to color coordinate EVERTYHING to match. I don’t wear much green, so I’m pretty much wearing everything that I own that comes in the color. (more…)
