It's Ok to Say No to Free.

I follow my sister's college friend's "deals" blog. She often times has good deals posted that I take advantage of and sometimes she has links to sites that are offering free samples. She had one for a free nail polish which is exciting but the color was not. It was blue. I thought "what the heck, it could be fun" and a few weeks later, I got my Essie nail polish in the mail, full sized bottle to boot.

Yesterday during Charlie's nap, I decided to give it a whirl. I knew right away it was a mistake but I kept going. I thought maybe I'd have time to add some pink dots on them and pretend I was getting in the Easter spirit. I met my sister later that night and showed her my smurf toes and her laughter was the reaction I was fully expecting.

I think the worst part about blue toes is trying to get rid of them. That nasty polish is a bit** to get off. For the life of me, I cannot get it out of the crack between my skin and nail so now my foot just looks dirty. I tried to color over the blue in a hot pink but it just looked worse. So now I have one blue foot and one dirty looking foot. Charlie and I had a playdate with our friends Maryanne and Matthew and I wasn't about to go out in public in my toes current state so I wore my sketcher mom shoes. I think a trip to the local pedicure lady is in my near future.
