This is my child's hand.
My son's hand.
We were at Target the other day and I was looking for a good turquoise nail polish color. But, since my nails were already done (in Commander In Chic), I didn't want to test the colors out on my own nails.
(Wait - I'm not the only one who tests nail polish colors out in the store before buying them, am I? Shoot... bigger confession than I though maybe...)
Anyway... I needed bare nails and there his were. All cute and tiny and fresh for the painting. What's a Mama to do? He was very much a willing participant (though I think it may have been a different story if I had been hunting for a perfect pink).
It turns out they didn't have the color I was after. (A girlfriend of mine was wearing this perfectly matte teal at our wine tasting and since I'd been hunting for the perfect teal I asked her what it was and where she got it. She said Target but my Target didn't carry it. Hence the attempts to find a substitute by painting my son's nails many wrong shades of green.)
Sheesh, this story got long fast.
Let's wrap it up, shall we?
All of that craziness to say that the perfect summer teal nail polish color has been found and it is available. (I know, y'all are so relieved, right?)
Ladies and Gentleman...okay, maybe just ladies...I present to you:
Aaaand, that was officially the biggest waste of your day so far. Sorry!
(Or, if you've also been hunting for matte turquoise perfection in a bottle; you're welcome!)
