I don't get my nails painted the same colour. The manicurist always gives me a weird look, but whatever. I get to try more colours this way!
A little over two years ago, I got two colours on my feet. One of them was OPI's Blue My Mind (coming up in a few posts!) and the other...At Your Quebec and Call.
I didn't know what I'd gotten myself into.
It helps that olive is one of my favourite colours, but nevertheless, I looked down at my freshly polished feet and gasped.
It is the most beautiful combination of olive, gold and glowiness.
See for yourself!

I nearly cried. I couldn't even find it on eBay.
Fast forward to September 2009 - Tod and I are doing some outlet shopping and we come across a beauty supply outlet. Not even a major chain, it was just a family-run store. I'm perusing the racks and I turn one to find not one, not two but EIGHT bottles of this golden olive bliss. I nearly died. And promptly purchased six. I would have gotten them all, but Tod restrained me like a German Shepherd puppy after a smaller dog.
I gave one to Alexander, one to Tod and I haven't even worked my way through one yet but the remaining bottles are my most prized possessions. As in, if my studio were to catch fire and I only have time to put on my shoes...I'm grabbing the remaining three bottles. And my dad, because it's his birthday today.
