You Know What They Say About Great Minds

I got to take a quick jaunt through L.A. last weekend.  It was just a 24 hour marathon visit tacked onto a business trip, just enough time to see two of my good girlfriends from college, Don Johnson, two actors from Heroes, and Vera Wang.

You know, the essentials.

It was great to catch up, but the weird coinkydink moment came when my friend, who I have written about before, met us for lunch and all I could do was stare at her nails.

They were a smooth grey with a hint of purple.  Darker than the color that I was crushing on this fall, but still totally chic.  And, I never found a light grey that met my specifications.

So, after we got through the niceties of how-are-you, how-is-work, significant-others-etc.  I couldn't contain myself any longer and I blurted out...What color is your nail polish?!?!

I mean seriously, you can't take me anywhere.  I have no social graces.

She looked a little taken aback (I mean literally, she had gotten through"work is goo-" before I jumped in) but said that she was shocked at how many comments she had gotten on it.  And that it was OPI by Sephora.

And I knew exactly which one she meant.



I know, because I have been to Sephora, oh, maybe 20 times to look at it.  It's the closest I've seen to what I want, but I was unable to pull the trigger and just buy the damn thing.  

Well, no longer!  Because my friend also said the magic phrase.  She told me that it was - nojoke- the best nail polish she's used.  No chips and going on 10 days.  Well, that seals the deal.  I plan on heading for that little bottle like a fricking heat-seeking missile or an intern for the cheese platter at a Rayburn reception.

Yeah, it's on.

After the nail polish issue was cleared up, I did get all the life scoop from my friend and catch up and everything.  I take this as reaffirmation that we are meant to be friends.

Oh, she also was carrying the bag I was about to buy last week.  Freaky, yes?

LOL - I have been having the same reaction to that nail polish myself. I just wanted to stop by and say hello - I used to write Beauty Musings and commented a couple of times here (or maybe i just lurked a lot). I moved back to Washington a few months ago and it occurred to me I had not visited your blog in a long time.

I saw this post a while ago and meant to leave a comment. I understood what you mean by color obsession because when I was cut off by an SUV on the Pike the other day, the only thing I could think of was that the color of that car would make the perfect nail polish. I found a kind of match by Essie, but I think one of your Sephora ones may be IT. I love your lavender gray. thanks for sharing.
