fuchsia fingers









Typically, I am a dark nail polish kind of girl, but there is nothing like a pop of color placed perfectly at arms length to perk up you day. I have been getting a little bored with the standard winter colors I often flock to -- you know the deep reds, purples and navys -- and this is just the pick-me-up I needed. Honestly, I don't own many pinks in my library of nail lacquers, however, that might need to change -- ASAP. The surprise touch of red adds that much needed quirkiness I love and I seriously cannot stop staring at my hands. So much so that I decided I needed to share my new love with the world! It is such a subtle detail, but it really adds a lot. Hope you like my sweet hand modeling skills (I am totally channeling the crazy hand model lady) and how refreshing it is to see brights during this drab season.

  10. Pretty colors! I like switching it up with a light color every once in awhile. I like that yours still looks red, but had touches of pink.

  11. That mug is hilarious! Loving the nail colour as well. I love a good shade of red although always hate the stains they leave!

  12. I completely agree! I had on dark nail polish of varying shades - red, purple, green, navy, teal, and gold for months straight! I finally changed it to a pale, barely-there shade about three days ago and it is so refreshing. Now I think I'll have to switch to bright pink!

  16. Cute post! Love nail polishes though I can say that I'm a late bloomer doing this thing. Like you, I can't help myself wearing a touch of reds and I always have them in my polish box.

  33. That mug is awesome!! My favorite pop of coral is from Essie, Geranium. You must try it out, it's such a bright and beautiful color, and definitely a change from the winter colors. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following. I am following now on Bloglovin and Google Friend Connect.
    All the best!

  35. Beautiful photos, as always! I love the use of the cute mug and pretty rings as props....Ellen Sirot is crazy, though! I've watched so many of her videos on Youtube...so funny. But seriously, I love the color - it's the perfect blend of pink and red and I'm really liking the OPI color you showcased at the end of your post. Happy birthday to your Dad!

  41. thanks for following back!! (: i love your nailpolish, it was exciting to come across.

    these days i don't wear a lot of pink either, but... there was a time in 6th/7th grade when i ONLY painted my nails different shades of pink, and i did that every single weekend. i was also obsessed with the movie legally blonde (those were my lost years). haha

  42. Oh my gosh this is so fun! Seriously - how creative you are. Love a pop of color on the fingerlings, my fav!

    You are too cute :)

  49. Haha, hilarious! But this is a very bad post for me... in the summer I kept buying one shade of nailpolish only to immediately start coveting another. I thought I'd recovered but...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Man, I love how that looks, but I have yet to find the right shades for my own fingers. I have one red that I like, and zero pinks. Boo. Trial and error, I suppose!

    PS Thanks for the visit!
