One day last summer, I decided to get a mani/pedi in Sag Harbor. As always, I can never choose a nail polish color. Why do they have to look so different in the bottle than they do on?!
The lady who helped me suggested a color. She said it was "very in - very stylish." I assumed she knew more than me and agreed to try it.
When she finished my toes, I looked down and was shocked to see a color that looked like a mix between mud and excrement. She saw the look of horror on my face and exclaimed, "You don't like it!" I whimpered, "It's just that I've never had anything so...dark before." She said that if I didn't like it, I could come back in two days for a polish change. I looked at her and declared, "I'll be back in two hours!"
The day was busy and the next thing I knew I was a guest at my friend's beach club for a lobster boil that evening. As we sat down, my friend looked at me and whispered, "I love your mink muffs." Perplexed, I looked at her, "Excuse me?" "Your mink muffs," she purred, looking pointedly at my toes, "I love your mink muffs." I looked down and could see everyone at our table was wearing Essie Mink Muffs on their toes!
I wonder what the "in" color will be this summer...
