I'm boring predictable consistent!

I forgot to mention that the night before I ran my first 5K, I treated myself to a pedicure and manicure at Express Hair and Nails in Springfield. Oh, I just love that place! If I lived there, I think I would go quite often because of how great their prices are. And because they do such a nice job.

Anyway...

When I select a color, I always go for the red/burgundy shades. I just can't break out of the mold. As I looked at each shade, I turned the bottle upside down to read the name of the color. This often will give me a chuckle, and sometimes I'll pick out the shade based on the name. So I selected I'm Not Really a Waitress and asked the girl to use that color for both my pedicure and manicure.

Fast forward to this week on Tuesday.

I was walking into my bedroom, and for whatever reason my toe lunged towards the foot-board of my bed, and it chipped about 1/3 of the paint off of my first toe. I was heartbroken. The perfect pedicure that I knew had to last for a long time because I hardly ever get pedicures was ruined. Not to mention the weather was nice enough that I was going to wear flip flops to my son's soccer game that night, so I just had to think of something.

There wasn't enough time for me to redo all of my toesies, so I looked in my nail polish collection to see if there was something close enough to just get me through that night...just so I could cover that little section. I figured from a distance no one would be able to tell anyway.

As I put the color I found in my drawer over the ruined section, I came to a realization. The color was exactly the same. It was not an OPI color, it was actually an Avon color. But I had picked out two identical colors at two completely different times. This is my "repaired" first toe with two different colors...












And I decided it's not because I'm boring...

...or predictable...

...but it's because I'm just consistent!


How does that sound, Sonja? :o)

I love pedicures, but like you don't get to enjoy them very often. The next time you are in Owensville you should stop by American Girl and see Lana. She gives the best pedi's, and her prices are the cheapest I have found (worth the drive, believe me). She can literally paint a masterpiece on your toes! By the way I love the color you picked, and the name is hilarious! :)

Red Rocks and it is not boring or consistent!
That is a french or clear- red has character!
And is bold- because once it chips, you either got fix it or take it off and you know how much we all hate to break out the nail polish remover.
Clear and french is safe and if it chips you usually can't notice it like red.
just a thought
