It’s not easy being green…

Ladies, I’d like your opinion. On a scale of 1 to 10, how obnoxious is my new nail polish? It’s totally not me, but I couldn’t resist it…like a jelly donut when you KNOW you don’t need it. I found it at the grocery store, and picked it up for St. Patrick’s Day and our annual Hoegarden “girls only” estrogen-filled weekend coming up in March. So tell the truth…does it make you nauseous, or does it scream “wow, she’s a fun girl” or does it inspire you to put on a pair of short shorts and go outside? Does it make you think of Kermit the Frog or the split-pea soup fiasco of The Exorcist? Do you want to hurl your Thin Mints, or does your heart sing with a sense of reckless abandonment? I really want to know. Before you vote, however, I should also tell you that I bought a vibrant turquoise color to go with it. Couldn’t stop myself. Blue and green are my favorite colors. As you can tell from this second photo, the green alone was not enough for me. At The Complete Package’s urging, I painted turquoise spots onto my neon lime nails. Why not? As long as there’s nail polish remover in the cabinet and cotton balls in the drawer, why NOT go nuts once in a while. Party like a rock star. Lose your mind. Free your soul. Act like a 14 year old girl. Live life on the edge. Over dramatize the fact that you painted your normally nude nails. You only live once, right? Here’s your chance to put in your 2 cents. Tell the truth, ladies…what do YOU think?

Note: The nail polish I purchased is Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in #450 Lickety-Split Lime and #430 Brisk Blue. They’re wild, they’re wonderful, and they dry within minutes. What’s not to love about that?
