TGI Lavender

9 05 2010

Last night I had the privilege of seeing my friend of 14 years, Em, who was in town to run the Indy Mini Marathon yesterday. She had her personal best time! I tried to meet her at the finish line but guess what? Parking, while there’s a mini marathon? Not so easy.

There was a TGI Friday’s in her hotel so I drove downtown to have dessert/drinks. You all are way lucky that I don’t have any of my old photo albums (they’re in storage because guess why? Our house is TINY! This is a theme, people) or I’d be showing you some hilarious shots. Em is about six inches shorter than me but I squatted for this picture:

Yes, we wore the same-ish shirt.

I dunno if you can tell but I am wearing a different nail polish color than my usual! In case you were wondering, this is my usual:

(From the wedding, natch) I wore this color, Vixen by Revlon, all the time, pretty much exclusively. It looks really dark in photos but basically it’s a very rich deep plum color. I bring it with me to get my nails done, on the rare occasion it happens. But I wanted to branch out. Nothing has ever grabbed me before, until I started seeing light, gray-ish lavender on people this season. I normally am not up with the trends but I saw it everywhere! I went to the drugstore, cause I’m cheap, and tried on a few. But I did not like any of them.

Thumb was too dark and grey. Pointer was too pre-teen. Middle finger was too white. I felt like Goldilocks. Where was my “just right?”

Finally I was at Sephora and found one I liked. It’s still a little to bright/purple for me, but it doesn’t stand out too much either. For $9, win.

Aptly, it’s called “Call Your Mother.” You know. Cause today’s Mother’s Day?

Whattaya think?

It’s sad that it takes so long for me to pick a color. But back me up girls- it’s important… right?

It’s cool, I have to do the gray/grey debate in my head sometimes. Ps Vixen isn’t discontinued, at least as of my last trip to Walgreens…
