I didn’t actually end up doing a cool effect this week, because if all goes well I’ll be doing something really awesome next week. The nails are getting a wee long for dark colors at the moment, but this particular thing will require at least a little length, so…anyway, we’ll see. I’m excited.
This week we’ve done orange.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in “Sun Kissed,” to be exact.
It’s…okay. It’s a nice color. It looks cheerier in the bottle than on the fingers. And oddly enough, it went on a bit gloopy, too. Perhaps it’s too dry in the house?
So really, this is a bit of a stopgap for today. I like the orange–I actually quite like orange as a color–but it’s not really exciting me. (Although again, if all goes well next week will be awesome.)
I did have a thought, though, as I was putting together today’s post, about my workspace and the fact that there are a number of different hand lotions around at any given time. I’m kind of obsessive about hand lotion, so keep it everywhere. These are the ones near me as I work (the bag balm and Aquafor are only for pre-bed glove-wearing, admittedly):
The Carmex tube I bought just before Xmas, and it’s pretty much empty, so currently I’m mostly using the “Udderly Smooth,” and I like it pretty well. Of course, this doesn’t include the cocoa butter lotions next to the bathroom and kitchen sinks, the two small tubes of L’Occitane in my purse (one vanilla, one unscented), the lavender L’Occitane or the cocoa butter ointment or extra E45 tub next to the bed, or the lotion spray in the bathroom.
So, it’s sort of about nails, because it’s about hands. And there you go. And fingers crossed I have something really cool to show you next week.
