a nudie????

so, i am totally off white. white nails, that is. it was perf for summer but i am feeling a transition and really need my nails to reflect that. that’s how i communicate with the world lately – a nail color code.

i told my trusty (and super chic) manicurist, dan, that i wanted something neutral before i go dark for fall. she recommended “OPI Nail Lacquer, Samoan Sand, 0.5-Fluid Ouncesamoan sand” by OPI, explaining that this is the color they put on models in photo shoots when they do not want their nail color to detract from the clothing. sold!!

i am SOOOO into OPI Nail Lacquer, Samoan Sand, 0.5-Fluid Ouncesamoan sand. i used to be all “Essie Nail Polish Sugar Daddy 0.5ozsugar daddy” and thinking that was neutral. and maybe it is. this is something different. this is nude. and i just feel like my nails are super sexy in an understated kind of way.

so, i’ve hooked you up with a “nudie” — a selfie of my nude colored nails. #obvi what do you think? barely-there sexiness or total snooze-fest?

    It’s like concealer for your nails. Hides the imperfections & just looks neat, clean &, well…polished.

    This is so funny, Caroline. I believe that Samoan Sand has been around for a very very long time, and it was the nail color I wore in my wedding back in ’97. I remember Jennifer H. recommending it to me when we were roommates 20 years ago! Guess that means it’s a classic?

      Holly! Too funny! As with most things, I am a little late to the party!!! Definitely a classic if you were wearing it and Jennifer was recommending it 20 years ago! Where does the time go??

tell us what you think!!!
