Pearly Pink Does It Again

Tutti Frutti Tonga by OPI was another color found at the supermarket on clearance. I guess people don't usually pick up their polish while purchasing leafy vegetables. This creation is composed of a simple yet complex silvery pink metallic lacquer. Since I've worn this new color, I like its flattering iridescence and understated elegance. Again, sprinkled with a touch of Orly Fifty-Four it gives it that brilliant edge.

I wore it to the fair this weekend with my favorite sandals, dark blue jeans, and a casual polo. The outfit came together well, I thought. It was quite dusty and being as subtle as they were, the fine dirt blended away the panache of my toes. Made it to the movies too. I saw "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" in 3-D with the fam. It was fun but looking through my own eyeglasses and the special plastic 3-D glasses gave me a headache. Ay!

I am travelling to Phoenix for business and to visit my brother. What color should I shock him with? I'll not hear the end of it but I have to stick to my guns. It was easier to present them to my mother-in-law. Even my own mother, who once asked if I was gay because of my pretty toes, at least tolerates it and won't say a word about them now. I wish the thought of decorated piggies had crossed my mind in my younger years. It will be fun grilling and cooling off in his pool as it is hellishly hot there. I'll meet his new dog. I miss having a dog. My thoughts are drifting,.. riffftngg... ningg..... It's late and I have a meeting at 630am. Ugh!


  1. GRRRR! I just had a huge comment disappear thanks to Google.

    My ultimate suggestion: China Glaze Ruby Slippers. Gorgeous red, all glitter, cannot be ignored or brushed under the rug. The red will work on any skin tone (as far as I can tell), and while 2 coats is sufficient, 4 coats will stop a person in their tracks.

    If I'm up to trying to reconstruct my original comment in the near future, I'll try. In the meantime, my alternate suggestions are: OPI My Private Jet (super-smooth black with multi-colored holographic glitter), OPI DS Vintage (deep pink holo), and OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress (unapologetic RED).

  2. Thanks for the suggestions. Ruby Slippers sounds like just the thing for me. Am I repressed?
