A place to share your most trivial of struggles that are keeping you from attaining nirvana.
Yesterday, I decided that after a more than a five year break from nail polish I MUST give myself a manicure. Immediately!
I pulled down the exquisite box I kept all my polishes, cuticle treatments, drying agents to find they had all gone past their prime.
I had gone cold turkey on the nail lacquer as I finally had to admit to myself that I was powerless over OPI. But to see the wreckage of my past! Oh sure, there were a couple of Revlon bottles of no consequence. But...to see bottles from my Greek Isles Collection; Melon of Troy, Greece just Blew Me Away, and my favorite, Titan Your Toga separated, dried, unable to dry when applied, almost made me weep.
There were others I bought that I never really feel in love with, such as Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, Diva of Geneva, but they were bought when my mind wasn't right.
Sahara Saphire...I can't talk about it. My heart aches for this lost friend. Maybe I can mix in some....no....don't Chai....you can't, don't kid yourself.
On a happier note, I did have some top coat and a bottle of Drip Dry that had never been opened, so yes, thank God they are safe.
AND! They were having a sale at Ulta, 2 OPI's for $16 AND I had a $3.50 off $15 coupon!
So I now have fresh base coat and Silver on Ice, from the Infinite Shine Collection. It's all I'll get. No more. Nope, not me.
But still, my lost friends....<choke>
