I’ve been on a quest this year to be nicer to myself – getting regular massages, treating myself to manicures, among other things. If you know me, you know I like to fade into the background, I don’t like to stand out. So when I treat myself to a manicure I usually go for an understated color. I’m not sure what happened this time – maybe it’s the fact I’m leaving for Italy tomorrow – but I chose a burgundy color (Bogota Blackberry). When she applied the first coat, I panicked a little and started doubting my choice. It was really bright!! But it turned out nice, if I do say so myself. It’ll be fun (I think) while it lasts.
