Love Bites

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.


  1. I love the green!
    I am 36 1/2 (don't forget the half, I earned it) and I go in Claires, Hot topic, Rue 21 and I am the coolest person in the place...why, because they are copying my style from 20 years ago! lol

  2. I really like the green. But I always like green. I'm digging this avalanche of mint polishes lately.

    I have a love/hate relationship with yellow polish, though. I always lust for it, but I'm usually disappointed with the streakiness of the formula. I bought a mustardy yellow from Sinful the other day. The formula was nice, but the color looked awful on my hands. I topped it with a couple coats of CG Cleopatra glitter and it was more palatable then.

  3. @Evil Angel - I'm a few years younger than you. I'm 31.. AND A HALF! (Are you another July baby?) It is funny to see all this 80s-looking stuff coming back in vogue. :)

    @gildedangel - Thanks! :)

    @Teresa - I always gravitate towards blues and greens and purples. I too am digging the mints!
