Hot Child in the City

I don't know why I felt the need to give my post that title!

I bought white nail polish ages ago, and I had a few ideas for what to do with it. I wanted to wait until the summer because white with bright stuff on top just screams SUMMER to me. Then, I bought this cell phone case, and I instantly knew that I wanted something like that on my nails.

There's a lot of dragging around my cuticles, but you can't really tell in real life. I was able to overlook that because the design is so cute.

The rhinestones were free! I didn't want rhinestones, just dots, but they gave me some for free.

This has been such a fun summer, and my pedicure is equally fun. That being said, I have to turn my computer over to the people at Geek Squad (issues with my motherboard). They'll have it for about 3 weeks, plus I'll be in Pittsburgh enjoying the last days of my summer break. I'll see you in September!

Non-Matching Nails

My pedicures last WAY longer than my manis, so I don't feel the need to update them as frequently. Also, I can't ever get the polish to look as nice on my toes as it does when I get a pedi. For this reason, I pick a pedi color that can go with a lot of other colors in my collection. When I say "go with", I mean it in the Stacy London/Clinton Kelly/What Not to Wear sense. Whole outfits don't need to be matchy-matchy, they just need to look nice together. It's the same thing with manis and pedis.

Two weeks ago, I polished my toenails a bright orange (Essie Bright Tights- I think... the sticker is gone) and my nails matched. After a few days, I removed the Essie from my nails and replaced it with Color Club Explosive. Both are pretty bright, but Explosive is more yellow-y. Still, I think they look great together.

I apologize for the picture of my feet. They really aren't that bad in person.

Last week, I got a mani and pedi with some random neon pink from the nail salon. The manicure eventually chipped, and that's when I got the bright idea to do the gumdrop mani from the previous post. The pedi color was a true neon hot pink, but it's not translating that well in the pics. The Orly color is more red-orange pink than true pink, but still. I liked them together.

I noticed my friend Di had light purple toenails and dark purple nails the other night. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera.
