A Bubble bath is much needed…

I made it out alive people!!!

For those of you that follow my blog you know that I had a very important interview today.  So important that I had to take a whole week off from blogging to STUDY for this interview.  It was hard staying away from here though. I was always thinking about you guys =)  I even have quite a few ideas for posts, so get ready!

But for now this post is about being “professional.” While doing research on what to wear for an interview, I think it’s pretty obvious that you want to go in looking your best.  But you also shouldn’t go in with a full suit and bright green nails.  It may say “Yeah I’m an awesome, daring chick.” But it doesn’t quite scream “I’m always professional.” So for my interview I went with a sweet, soft pink.

OPI Bubble Bath

It was perfect.  It even matched my pink cardigan that I wore! The girl that interviewed me even noticed my nails when I came in. It was perfect.

But the interview is over now so I can rest for a little bit. But now you wonder if I’m going to wear this plain pink all weekend. And I am going to say “Yes ma’am!” I just recently ordered an item from amazon.com that was on my wish list.  This color is part of the Femme De Cirque collection by OPI that came out April 1st.

OPI I Juggle...Men

Doesn’t look like much does it? But let me tell you, this baby takes your flat cream nail polish to a whole different dimension.  What do I mean? Let me show you. First I took a picture of my nails before I Juggle…Men…

OPI Bubble Bath

Pay no attention to the dings. I painted my nails at 8 in the morning before I drove off for my interview (gosh I sure love Drip Dry). But this is the Bubble Bath with no top coat at all.

This is Bubble Bath topped with I Juggle…Men as a top coat.

See the cute specs of holo glitter?? Love it. It was worth the $5+shipping and the  4 days of waiting for my shipment to arrive! =)

Recap:

If you’re going for something professional but still want to show a little personality try a light pink or a good nude color.  But if you want to take it from professional to fun, I suggest getting I Juggle…Men. Two quick swipes with a drop of Drip Dry and you’re ready to go.

Happy polishing!

Oscars 2011

Let me first start by saying, I did not watch the whole awards show.  My mom had called me over for ribs that night, I didn’t have a hard time choosing between the two.  I love me some home-cooked ribs. BUT I saw more than enough.  As far as nails go, it looks like it was a nude show.  The only one that dared to wear a bold color was the stunning host, Anne Hathaway.  

Most actresses decided to not take away from their gorgeous dresses.  I would say the best dressed was Mila Kunis.  She matched her lacy fit with a nude polish and nude clutch. Perfect.

The always adorable Amy Adams did a slightly darker nude, bordering on a tan polish.  At first glance I thought it was a pale pink, which would have been absolutely fine too. 

In this picture of Jennifer Hudson, she paired her vibrant orange gown with a light metallic.  It was a flawless match, in my opinion.

With Spring approaching nudes are a perfect answer for what shade to wear.  Here are a few colors that I can’t wait to use.  The first is a few new bottles I picked up last week.  From L-R: Sew psyched, In Stitches, and Topless & Barefoot.

These two almost look the same in the picture.  On the left we have It’s totally Fort Worth it.  It’s part of the new Texas collection from OPI.  It’s a light grey with a light holo(graphic) tone on it.  On the right is Moon over Mumbai.  It’s a a flat light grey, almost white.

A few light pinks. From L-R: Malaysian Mist, Hearts & Tarts, Bubble Bath, No Bees Please. And the last are pearls.  Pearls are always classic.  Again, L-R: Pearls Night Out, Pearl of Wisdom, and Oh So Glam.

Thats it folks.  Sorry for the long post!

Happy polishing!
