Nails au naturel

I'm proud of my nail polish collection.

For Christmas my mom bought me a handful of new, waiting to be painted polishes. The deep plums, purples and ravishing reds complimented the holiday season and the weather. Yet, there was one shade that didn't quite fit. Its nude, creamy colour didn't grab my attention and faded in comparison to my berry hues.

So I reluctantly tried O.P.I's "Barefoot in Barcelona"($10 at salons and Trade Secrets) and painted my nails in a flash. To my surprise, I had straight from the salon nails (and I'm no manicurist).
The colour is sophisticated, classic and perfect for potential interviews and handshakes with the PR world. When in need of a quick nail fix, I don't have time to deal with messy stains and the precision that comes with applying dark colours.

The name brings back memories of hopping across the sizzling sands of Barcelona, trying not to burn the soles of my feet.

I'm a neutral nail polish newbie and I'm lovin' it.
