|She’s just smiling because she too wishes she could have a pedicure.|
You’re probably thinking one of those tiny dogs with “big personalities” has joined our family or that I’m planning a trip to Mexico.
|My Chihuahua Bites — it’s the name of this color.|
Mais pas de tout, I’m talking about my latest pedicure. Last week the young woman who has been doing my pedicures for years talked me into getting a semi-permanent polish. She convinced me by pointing out the color dries in 30 seconds (it did), the finish will remain super shiny (it does) and the pedicure will last almost two months (we’ll see). Then she handed me the color swatches from O.P.I. and I chose “My Chihuahua Bites” which I consider one of my fashion nods to Pantone’s fall/winter color chart.
|OK, so there is a slight difference in My Chihuahua and Aurora Red, but when I put my foot next to this picture it was minute.|
I think the color is almost exactly Aurora Red, that sort of brick hue I find so pretty, but not necessarily next to my face. When I pop out of bed in the morning, my toes shine with this cheery color and my day begins on a happy note. (As I’ve mentioned on many occasions, I have a thing about my painted toenails. I’m not even sure it’s normal.)
Part of the fun of Essie and O.P.I. products is the silly names on the bottles that don’t actually explain the colors.
