San Francisco is famous for foggy summer days, especially through July and August. It’s part of the city’s charm, not knowing what to expect from the weather, and why visitors to SF should always dress prepared. πŸ™‚

Sometimes, though, when it’s warm almost everywhere else in America, SF’s overcast days get *really old*.

Up here in Marin County this morning, about 10 miles north of the city, I woke up to one of those foggy summer days.

I decided to brighten my outlook with brightly colored nails — a crazy mix of colors from the new Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Nail Color collection ($6 each).

Here are seven of the collection’s eight shades (click here to see the eighth color, Digital, a shimmery cool pink).

To make the vibrant, shimmery polishes in this collection, Sally says they used liquid crystals and pure pigments. The colors are supposed to be as clear and brilliant as high definition TV.

Looking at these colors, I can’t help but smile. The shades are like little bursts of bright color on my nails!

I think it’s time for a giveaway. πŸ™‚

  9. emma says:

    what cheers me up on a gloomy day:
    tea, horror movies, bubbles baths and card games : )

    did you wear all these amazing colors at once? i love multi-colored nails, its so much more fun not to have to pick a color.

  10. Kerry says:

    On a gloomy day, I like to wear a little brighter blush than usual. It makes me look more awake and alive.
    Also, there’s nothing like a great cup of coffee and a piece of chocolate brownie. Here in New Zealand, we love our “flat whites”, they are kind of like a latte, but with more espresso, and only a wee bit of velvety steamed milk. Mmmm πŸ™‚

  11. Tuhina says:

    On a gloomy day I cheer myself up by watching one of my favorite movies… Dirty Dancing… or one of my Bollywood fav’s Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.

  12. Allilanta says:

    Sipping a mocha latte from Starbucks and giving myself a bright mani/pedi cheer me up. Though I have to admit, reading makeup reviews and planning my next haul is even better therapy.

  13. Flavia says:

    Relaxing in the tub and cuddling my dog πŸ™‚

    If he’s not around, I read a good/funny book (by Jennifer Crusie!) to get away πŸ˜€
