OK, I don’t normally appreciate photos of feet unless they belong to a foot model. And I wouldn’t post photos of my tootsies if I weren’t so chuffed about my new pedicure. Or if I had hooves. But since a photographer I used to know once begged me to let him take photos of my feet (I declined), I figure they must not be too bad.
See, what prompted all this is that I’ve been itching to try the neon nails trend after seeing a day-glo toe…or ten. So the first thing I did I was scoop up a bottle of Essie Pink Parka that I’ve had my eye on.
Then I painted. Two coats, which dried fast, and dried matte, interestingly enough. I’ve never tried Essie polish before, but so far, I’m impressed. I finished with a shiny OPI top coat, and SHAZAM! Seriously pink, seriously bright nails. Like a pink highlighter for my toes. I have to admit that the color was unnaturally bright at first—almost too much. Almost. But the more I look at my pedi, the more I like love.
Now I’m looking forward to warmer weather so I can sport my Pink Parka piggies with outrageous platforms and drab, military-inspired olive and khaki shorts or skirts. Wait a minute. I’m going to be in south Florida in ten days! Woo hoo! Perfect timing.
