Tip Top Toes

IN THE NEWS: "Ore. man completes flight of fancy - in lawn chair." Read more HERE.

The wine worked! (With a couple of teaspoons of children's Benadryl)
**note: do not attempt to mix wine and Benadryl at home. Jennifer is a trained pharmacist but also has not worked as one in many many years.

Ok, don't get excited. I didn't have an awesome night's sleep, but I do feel a lot less grouchy, which is good news for the many around me.

I was so tired all yesterday. I couldn't read, I couldn't write, and because I was still coughing I couldn't nap. Ick. So I did what any other sleep deprived woman in America would do.

I painted my toenails blue. **shrugs**

Actually, Sally Hansen calls it "Flash", but for all intents and purposes we'll call it plain blue.

I don't know about you, but I tend to gravitate toward the flashier colors for my toes, especially in the summer. Why? I don't know. Toes are so... well, not attractive. Why would I want to draw unnecessary attention to them? Hmm... I'm not sure. To make them seem prettier than they are?

Funny, but I rarely paint my fingernails. I wear gloves when I do the dishes and they still only last a day if I get them done. And on the off chance I break down and paint them, I usually do a French Manicure or natural color. I assure you I would never have them blue or any color I would typically pick for my toes. Again, I'm not sure why.

A few weeks ago I had my toes painted BRIGHT orange. Hey, don't knock it! It looked killer with my tan. But I did have someone laugh and ask me if my daughter painted my nails. To save face, I lied. ( a teeny lie, but still) Little did the person how happy I get when I see such bright pretty colors on my feet.

And here they are:

For the record, I did NOT plan to match my shoes with my toenails. It just sort of worked out that way.
What's the funkiest nail color you ever used? Have you ever color coordinated your nail polish with your shoes or outfit?

That looks awesome! Never thought of blue...

The flashiest color I've ever done on my nails was black and silver sparkles to match an evening outfit. Back then my nails were long, and it looked spectacular.

Glad you're feeling a little better.

Note to self: when stuck for a blog topic, take pictures of your feet. =)

And I might add, not only do your toenails match your shoes, they match the shirt you're wearing in the sidebar. You are waaaay too cool for me!

I love my toes flashy colors as well. Right now they're sparkly pink. The sparkles are much harder to remove though.

I have a blue that's a little lighter than that, and of course, now I want blue toes too. LOL Very cute!

I'm too much of a tomboy to want to paint my fingernails or toe nails. Besides I always have tennis shoes on so why paint toes???
But that is a pretty blue color.

Love your blue polish on nails. I'm a boring person and haven't painted my toe nails for years.
