Pastel Polish

Lately I've been seeing a lot of nail polish that I've been envying. Mint green, baby blue, lilac, glitter gold, pale yellow...I've seen these out in real life, on movies and around the blogosphere - and I really wanted some too.

Last night after dinner with my dear friend Amanda, I stopped at Walgreens to treat myself to some new polish. I knew I definitely wanted to find this mint green color, and I was open to a few other options as well. Apparently I was in a very spring-ish mood, and picked three lovely pastel shades.

They all look a tiny bit darker in the pic, as opposed to real life.
I also got a new bright red polish, because my old one was basically empty. The mint green one on the left wasn't price marked, so I had no idea how much it would be. The other two were both a whopping $1.99, and the red was $0.99. Turns out, the green one was on sale, so I payed only $8 for all four polishes! That's an incredible deal for those of you who don't know nail polish prices. (Good ones are usually $6-7 each!)

I did the purple one last night first, and I love it. It's so springy and lovely and pastely and I can't stop looking at my nails :) Can't wait to try out the other two soon! I'm ready for flowers and Easter and spring and lovely weather. Bring it on Spring!

I pride myself on painting my own nails semi-perfectly.
This girls' not wasting money at a nail salon! No-siree.

I'm so jealous! I can't ever paint my nails because it's distracting when I interpret...unless I want to paint them french or some boring nude pink. blech!
