I’m mostly giving myself advice here… I have a really hard time trying bright summer colors. I’m a dark red – kinda girl. None of this bright frilly stuff. So I’m trying, I’m really really trying to brighten up my toes for the summer. Erin and I got a pedicure on Thursday – and I did, in fact try a bright fun color this time. Here it is Tuesday, and the color is STILL on, so it’s not killing me!

ULTA has some 60 colors to choose from in their inexpensive ULTA nail laquer line!
