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.
