In a comment to this post, Debbie Cook said "Just because I can see your toes, I was wondering - do you match your toes to your fingernails? And what color(s) did you wear with this great dress."
I must admit that I very rarely match the polish on my nails and toes. I like changing my mani too often to change up the pedi as well. So, I tend to go for very dark polish - it seems to de-emphasize my toes and just create a neat, clean look, that coordinates with anything I wear. So, I go for colours like dark navy, bittersweet chocolate, charcoal or eggplant.
And, if I'm to be even more honest, I pretty much never do my own pedicures, because I don't enjoy the process. I don't have any foot issues like some people do - I just don't like hunching over my feet to clean up cuticles and such. Instead, I go to a local place that does a great job at a good price. It's one of the very few times I pay someone to pamper me, so I enjoy the relaxation and the indulgence of the experience. I can usually get away with going once a month during toe-baring seasons (I can't be bothered with pedicures in the winter months).
See below for the polish that I wore with my Prom dress.
Now, on to the pretties:
BB Couture - Green Goblin
- purchased at overallbeauty.com for $9.00 US
Green Goblin applied wonderfully, just like most BB Couture polishes. It covered perfectly in two thin coats. It also wore well - only minor tip wear after two days.
Revlon - Ocean Breeze
- a present from a friend
Sea Breeze astringent and it gave me a wicked headache. After a few hours, the odour became less pronounced (or perhaps my nose went into overload and short-circuited - who knows). By the next day, I could hardly smell the scent at all.
Ocean Breeze applied nicely and required two coats for opacity. It wore well, with only tip wear after one day.
Milani - Key Lime Shine
- purchased at Superstore (chain grocery store) for $4.99 CDN
Key Lime Shine is an unique light silvery seafoam green polish with a frosty finish. I was smitten by the colour in the bottle.
Key Lim Shine applied reasonably well, although it was a bit streaky and required three coats for complete coverage. Unfortunately, the wear was abysmal - I had major tip wear and a lot of chipping after one single day of wear. I am not impressed. I hope the other Milanis I got are not as craperific as Key Lime Shine.
