So that's the brand name of the polishes I picked up at Rue 21 today.
Sidenote -- I am getting to the age where I feel slightly ridiculous going to Claire's and Rue 21. I still wear chucks and put bright red streaks in my hair, but I am always super conscious of the fact that I'm actually thirty-something when I go into these places. I'm pretty sure that none of the clothes at Rue 21 would fit me -- well, maybe the biggest sizes would, but that's probably it. Not to mention I'd feel ridiculous wearing them. Every time I watch "What Not To Wear," I also notice that I dress like the "before" woman, more often than not. LOL. They would totally tell me it's time to grow up. Whatevah!
Anywho, I mucked up the mustard yellow, but since it was just for swatchin' and not for a real mani, I let it stand. I dig this color. It's different. It's a yellow that doesn't look like corn. It's actually more muted in real life than it is in this picture.
And this is the mint green I picked up. I'm actually wearing this now. I dig it! I dig it a lot! I did notice that I picked up three colors today that are all very similar -- this is one of them. Oops. This also has the slightest amount of shimmer in it. I don't think it makes my fingers look as red as this photo would lead you to believe, but I could be wrong.
