If I don’t get my hands on some Skittles soon, I just might devour my nails, LOL! That’s because they look delicious all painted in fruit candy colors, courtesy of China Glaze Kicks.
Each of these six pink, orange and red nail polishes ($3 each; full collection contains 12 shades) looks good enough to eat — just like the first batch of colors did.
For a look at the 2010 fall collection…
China Glaze Vintage Vixen
The 12-piece collection was inspired by brightly colored tennis shoes, and being a footwear enthusiast (aka I have a shoe obsession, but it isn’t pervy, I swear), I lurve this collection somethin’ fierce!
I like these particular shades a lot, but I think I prefer the six from my first post. I think those blues and greens were a little more original than these.
The two pink shades, B-Girlz and Laced Up, appear almost identical, with B-Girlz being slightly darker and more shimmery hot pink, while Laced Up has more of a creamy, rosy pink thing going on.
And Oh How Street It Is and Style Wars, the two creamy reddish orange shades, could almost be twins, but I think Oh How Street It Is applies with just a touch more red.
Out of these six shades, the two that really pop for me are Sneaker Head (a creamy orangish magenta) and Breakin’ (a shimmery medium orange). Both remind me of this pair of orange and red strappy Aerosoles high-heel sandals I rocked back in the summer of 2002.
I wish I had a picture because I loved those shoes… I ended up donating them to Goodwill because they no longer fit me well (I guess my feet grew, ha!).
Nowadays I wear a size seven shoe, but when I bought those sandals I was about 15 pounds lighter and able to squeeze into a six and a half. Everything changed when I discovered Haagen Daaz Dulce De Leche ice cream. Hello, chubby feet and stretchy pants!
Anyway, I figured the shoes would be better off giving joy to some other woman than they would have been sitting in my closest, sigh.
Question: When your dress size changes, does your shoe size change, too? Or am I the only one that happens to…
