A Oui Bit Of Red

One of my dream jobs on my list of dream jobs has always been "Nail Polish Namer" Ever since back when I wore colors with names like Blood and Gun Metal.
I went through a period of time when I didn't wear nail polish as much because I worked as a waitress because I worked at a place that only allowed servers to wear neutral colors for nail polish. Apparently purple isn't a neutral color.
My love of nail polish has been revived in the last couple years thanks to OPI. I love the names of the nail polish. I bought Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ because my dad once owned a boat that had been owned by a great grandson of the Mrs. O'Leary who was the owner of a certain lantern kicking cow. Since then I've bought many other colors in the OPI line.
As a writer I think that having pretty nails in important. A vibrant color on my nails can really make the words flow. A clam color like Cozumelted in the Sun can be great for revisions.
This weekend in honor of Valentine's Day I've decided to go with a Oui Bit of Red. A fun red color that makes me think of France, fun and love.
I'm sure the color will go well with the weekend warm up- seriously people it is going to be 30 degrees here in Minneapolis. I just cracked open my window and I won't be wearing gloves all weekend in celebration of the warmer temps and so I'll be able to show off my red nails.
