the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Sweet Heart OPI nail polish

After I recently posted a picture of one of my many wedding rings, I got a slew of email asking about the color of my nail polish. Don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post this, I’ll blame placenta brain, but it’s the shade Sweet Heart by OPI. I picked it up at the grocery store thinking it was the perfect neutral, and I was totally right. Just a couple of coats leaves a really natural shade on my nails which I prefer to a color that screams CIRCUS! This is also similar to the color my mother always wore while I was growing up, so maybe it’s my not so subtle attempt to be as glamorous as she was.

Also, this color looks great on the dogs.
