So, today when I got my nails done, I had a color dilemma. I have to tell you, with my being a rather plain Jane in that area - I'm traditionally either a classic French Manicure type, very neutral/natural type -- or, deep dark reds. Usually not a tough decision. But today...a dilemma ensued.
I found some fun and bright pinks that I just could not tear myself away from! It was either going to be a very fun and vibrant pink, such as "I'm India Mood for Love", or something a little more subdued as "Aphrodite's Pink Nightie" - but it was a little too shimmery. So, I ended up with the very Easter-eggish shade of "Got a Date To-Knight". Which, if I'm being completely honest -- I don't love. Clearly just a sign that I am too pale looking and need to have my sunless tanner start making it's appearance for the season. So, note to self: Please don't use pale, pale flat colors when not tan. Really, not a good look.
It's Cinco De Mayo! Totally a great opportunity to throw back a few Margaritas or in my case - Cervasas to celebrate the....hmmm. What are we celebrating again? Oh right - the independence of Mexico. Well, sort of. The troops from Spain didn't actually leave, despite the declaration of independence. Ah. And yes, us here in America eat drink and be merry to celebrate the independence of a country who's people we don't want here any longer?
Interesting, the irony. But I digress.....as I sip on my Cervasa.
Hasta manyana mi amiga/amigos.
GO SOX. (Same in all languages I do believe....)
