Happy Monday, polish fiends. I am tired. Very tired. This post may not make so much sense, but it does in my head. You see, I go through these periods of only listening to one album. For about two years (yes, two years) it was Abbey Road. I still listen to that fairly often. Then through the summer and fall it was Tom Petty's Greatest Hits. Right now it's the Eagles, Hotel California. The song Hotel California in particular is of course one of my favorites; I often requested my boyfriend play it on guitar for me. It also reminds me of one of our favorite movies, The Big Lebowski. The Coens play a cover of it during this scene.
Oh John Turturro, you are too amazing.
Anyway, Hotel California inspired my nail color for today. I had a request from my dearest Kelsea over at kelsealaurel for Metro Chic, which she posted recently. I'll probably use that later in the week. Today I busted out a semi-oldie but an always goodie. Again, sorry my hands are so dry. I'm a compulsive hand-washer and it's winter in the midwest.
For Audrey, artificial light
Natural light, by a window
With cute nail file
For Audrey is of course an allusion to the famous "Tiffany blue" color that Tiffany & Co. uses for its boxes, pouches, etc. The polish isn't an exact match because I believe that the color is actually trademarked. It's pretty close, though. I am, of course, quite fond of Audrey Hepburn. She is sort of my style icon, along with Jackie O. This was my desktop for like a year and a half (yes, I get into music and desktop ruts; the movie poster for Fur is my desktop now).
For Audrey is still a pretty popular color, from what I know. The formula on my bottle is pretty thick. I might add a couple drops of thinner. I would have been okay at two coats, but I got cuticle drag on a couple nails. Ack. It looks nice though, doesn't it? Who else loves it? Has anyone found a better Tiffany blue polish? I know Polish Hoarder Disorder did a series on Tiffany blue recently...
BY THE BY, look what I found at CVS last week.
Hm, what's that?
Um, yeah. Squee. I got this Tracy Reese polish for $2.50. I'm telling you guys, go to CVS. All kinds of stuff is on sale; you never know what you'll find. Angela has also alerted me that Revlon products are buy one get one free today. So go on!
