Oh...To Be 25 Again


I decided to treat myself to a manicure and pedicure last week. My feet needed some desperate attention before I could bare them to the world and thought I'd get the nails to match - how fancy of me.  I don't normally get manicures because I seem to be the kind of person that walks out of the nail salon and immediately smudges the polish. This happens without fail and sometimes while I'm still in the shop which then requires me to sheepishly ask the woman to touch up my newly painted nails.  

Anyways the colour of this nail polish made me smile and made the smudge that happened right after I snapped this photo much more bearable. The colour is by O.P.I and is called 'Oh...To Be 25 Again' - how great is that name?  Somewhere, someone gets to come up with all these insane names for nail polish - I want this job!  So while I'm not sure I'd like to rewind the years, at least my painted nails allowed me to have a lovely trip down memory lane...

The names of all the OPI nail polishs amuse me and make me smile all the time!
The one I wore on my wedding wday was "second honeymoon"!

I too am terrible with the manicure. And impatient that I leave the salon before they are completly dry... You would have thought that we have learnt our lesson be now... (Oh, to be 25 again! I love it!)

Ah ! I feel your pain, I'm the worst with manicure... first of all my nails have a weird round shape (due to years of biting them like an idiot) and last time I went, I ended up messing up one nail while turning pages of my US Weekly... good times :) xx

i used to think that about paint names at the hardware shop and thought it would be a great job to be the one who gets to name them.
but you're right, that's a fantastic name for a nail polish :)

OPI always has the best names for their polishes. I've never, ever had a manicure or a pedicure (I don't think I'd want a pedi, hate my feet being touched) but I'm 30, I really should have a manicure at some stage!

I just got my first manicure, which is completely ridiculous because i take 0 care of my hands and nails, I smudged it as soon as I walked out of the shop! *s*
