Hello! Today I have OPI’s orange-fest, iron-wearing, bright-but-not-neon awesomeness that goes by the name “A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find.”
Now, as usual, my camera made my nails — which look perfect to the eye in person right now — look lumpy and sad and my cuticles red and dry and also sad. I promise my cuticles look lush and healthy and the polish is perfectly shaped!
Anyway, onwards! Man-darin is a true orange, and it’s fairly bright, but it’s nowhere near neon status. Just a good, clean true orange. The picture makes it look like it pulls more red, but it’s not. If anything it’s “carrot yellow” … like this here! It applied like butter and has stayed on for FIVE DAYS NOW. I keep wanting to switch to a navy blue, but it’s still perfect, so I don’t want to ruin it. Maybe tomorrow — there’s some tip wear.
I’ve been leaning more towards the oranges and other warmer colors rather than the cool blues this winter. Maybe it’s because it’s January 9th, and there is no snow on the ground! Usually we look like this by now:
But instead we have fresh grass still, some frost on the ground, and we have the problem of flowers and trees blooming already! Even though we’re sure to get pounded with snow soon and they’ll all die. 😦
Well, I’m off to go watch a marathon of House Hunters International! You all have an amazing week, and I’ll be sure to post more! Yay winter break!
