New Nail Color

I’m a French-manicure girl for sure.  My nail girl (Cindy) doesn’t even ask me to pick out a color because she knows it’s always French.  Except for last week.  I got a wild hair and chose this bright pink shade by OPI.  And it’s not lost on me that a “wild hair” for me now includes a change of nail polish color!

    I am normally a french girl too, but I LOVE a bright color for summer. Looks great!

    Funny how the definition of "wild" changes as you get older/reach new stages in life. One of my fav OPI colors is Paint My Moji-toes, and I wrote about it just a few days ago. 😉

    My favorite at the moment is called "You're a Pisa Work"….for my toes. I am usually a pale pink on my nails.

  4. I love that color too. . . haha! I am a french manicure OR OPI Bubble bath on my nails (always, they don't even have to ask) but bright pink or red on my toes. . . You new nail color looks VERY southern cal! 😉 It is the little things in life! 🙂

    Love that color! welcome to the wild side 😉 – right now I'm wearing Flirt by Essie.

    Love that shade. I used to get pedicures about every other week. Before I had kids. I never did go for nails b/c they always chipped right off. I attempt to paint my own toe nails now, but I might as well ask the dogs to lick the polish on b/c it looks so awful. I think I'm due for a pedicure, and I want that shade!

    I heart the color!! I use to get only french manicures but for the last couple years, I only get color and I love it.

    Love it! I painted mine bright red last week…I think polish changes are total mood pick-me-uppers! Happy Tuesday xo

    I love it! I did my toes a really similar color for the wedding last weekend. I am a pink nail girl all the way!

    LOVE that colour!

    What a great summer color. Love the name too! Doesn't OPI have the cutest nail polish names??? Have you seen the Texas line?

  13. June 14, 2011 / 5:32 pm

    Love the color! I used to get mine done all the time too, and always did french on my fingers…but I am ALL about color on my toes. Currently, they are the most obnoxious blue purple with a design. However, they desperately need to be redone. Love OPI's Texas collection!

    I was always the french manicure girl too until I found Ulta's nail color, Mango and now that Target sells Essie, it kills me though at $8 a bottle, but the colors are so bright and it easily goes on my fingernails. I love how nailpolish can add that extra POP of color in your wardrobe

    That color is fabulous! I have something similar on my toes, and am loving it!!!

  17. June 14, 2011 / 8:45 pm

    I am sooooo boring with french on the toes and clear on the hands . . this might inspire me to go pink! Fun color.

    You wear it well! Wearing darker colors on my fingernails can be really fun (and when I say darker, I mean anything with color — I'm a neutral nails girl!), but just requires a little more maintenance.

    I've been considering doing the gel polish with a pretty pink color. I had the gel done recently for our wedding in the French style and I LOVED it. It lasted over 2 weeks!

    Ohhh la la! I love it. I always get french when I get my shellac manicures, but I do color when I do them myself. Love the pink!

  21. June 14, 2011 / 11:40 pm

    oh my word I love that color. so summery & fun. I usually get the whole frenchy done as well lately, I have been all sorts of colorful. Sometimes it's fun to change them every few days depending on the mood!

  22. June 15, 2011 / 12:06 am

    I love that color too! I am definitely a bright nails girl, so that pink is just another great one to add to my collection! Glad you're converting to the bright side 😉

    Cute color!! I love to have my nails done up in colors for the spring & summer. I usually stick to french in the fall & winter.

    You are so brave. My nail gal tried to get me to paint my nails last week, and I just couldn't do it. I am french manicure all the time. -KD

    Fun color, Megan! I've always been French on my nails and I might need to try this pink for a change. Great pop of color for summer. Your nails look pretty!

    That's funny. I never get my nails done, just too much maintenance for me. I do love to get my toes done though and am a french pedicure girl, too. I am trying to venture out into bright pinks and reds when I get color. I do find it helps me get out of my comfort zone and it is fun! 🙂 Cute color by the way!!

    I love painting my nails fun colors! I feel like it's one way for me to rebel a little at the office! 🙂

    i LOVE it! (and the dining room in today's post!! soooo you!)

    I've always been a bright toes girl, and mostly naked nails. When I do paint nails, they are bright too. That color looks great on you!

  31. June 18, 2011 / 8:52 pm

    Weeee! Great way to be wild! I too am a french gal, however with all this reupholstering I'm doing lately I don't even bother with that, my hands are shot. Love the pink!
