In light of my total inability to compose anything coherent since last Wednesday, I thought that we probably needed to workshop a topic that hasn’t really seen the light of day in a LONG time.
Yes, y’all guessed right.
It’s Mitts and Paws time.
On Friday, I needed a little something to perk-up my weekend, so I rolled over to CVS to pick up a few necessity and in the process, may or may not have thrown a couple of experimental bottles of polish into my basket.
The results were…experimental.
As you’ll see from the snaps below, the only thing I managed to ascertain from the experience is that I shouldn’t be a hand model.
Option Uno: Revlon’s 907 Steel-her Heart
Option Dos: Revlon’s 925 Gold Coin
While I was sporting Option Uno, I thought that it seemed like a little much. And maybe a little bit whiny. Because gray seems to be all about having feelings…and stuff. But once I swapped it out for Option Dos this afternoon (brighter! more upbeat!), I started to wonder if I should be wearing metallics at all.
When I see other ladies flashing boldly-painted nails in the wild, they always look so confident, and these mitts of mine just had me second-guessing the entire time.
Yes, I realize that’s probably a sign.
I suppose if worst comes to worst, I could always re-purpose the Gold Coin for Holidays Only or Paws Only. My Spider Sense is telling me that the Steel-her Heart wouldn’t look nearly as versatile (and likely more corpse-like) on my toes.
Impromptu Vote: Option Uno or Option Dos?
Are you a gray/silver person or a greige/gold person?
Jewelry-wise I’m a silver person. Mitts-wise, I’m greige/gold I think. Or more broadly, “warm.”
