I'm Fondue of You

Today, I strolled to Gtown on my break and totally not planning on it, bought a little treat: new nail polish.

I wasn't into nail polish until fall of my 4th year at UVa. I was living with two of my best friends and a third friend who turned into one of my best friends by the time our lease was up. One night, we had a complete girls night due to the fact that we had just found out that an ex-boyfriend had gotten engaged. Wine, tequila (what?) chocolate, sad movies, and lo and behold, nail polish. Ever since then, it seriously has been a joy of mine. A quick fix to lift the spirits. It's a "life may be down in the dumps, but we've got our nails painted pink! Get out of my way" type of mentality. Or rather, my nails are painted black! 'Lincoln Park in the Dark' was a personal fave at the time.

So today, I got OPI's 'I'm Fondue of You' from their fall 2008 French collection. I'm seriously thinking that the gals at OPI who get to name nail polish are brilliant. 'Bastille my heart??' 'Louvre me Louvre me not??' I LOVE THESE NAMES.


  1. Ohh carey beth...I miss Rugby so much! That day was one of the best. You forgot to mention that we were hunting in the corn field that whole day and drinking beer with the men...then we came back to paint our nails...then lee ellen and amanda and I went on our little adventure :) Remember!?!?

    I am now following your blog.

  2. Hi Carey,

    On a completely unrelated note, if you're in D.C. you should check this out. I haven't seen the film but I'm a really big fan of The Trinity Forum and if they're endorsing it, I bet it'll be good.


    Conversation and Screening Moved to February 9

    The Trinity Forum is hosting an evening Conversation in Washington, DC with Senior Fellow Jody Hassett Sanchez on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, featuring a screening of her documentary film, SOLD: Fighting the New Global Slave Trade.

    Can one person make a difference when it comes to to ending slavery today? SOLD looks inside the lives of three modern-day abolitionists daring to take on the problem of slavery in their own countries. Defying death threats, organizing daring rescues, and challenging powerful interests, these three individuals draw on their respective Muslim, Hindu, and Christian faiths to fight one of the world’s most horrendous injustices: human bondage.

    The evening begins at 6:30 pm at the Letelier Theater in Georgetown. See this page for more details or to RSVP, or contact Lauren Gasque at 202.944.9881.
