Halloween Toes

Boys, I’m not even going to apologize for posting this ’cause I am so rockin‘ the black Halloween toenail polish. I wanted to ask the professionals who applied it if they could add little skulls, or aliens, or Disney princesses, or a swine flu virus molecule or something scary but I figured it would be a no go.

This picture was taken in my Scion xB toaster car in my suburban cookie-cutter ‘hood in the fabulous fall weather on the way to a friend’s wedding. (It was kind of a casual wedding, but it was a wedding, which is why I wore my sparkly flip flops rather than the plain ones. There are limits.) (Oh. And I wasn’t driving, so the taking of this photograph did not endanger anyone.)

    Jealous. Off to find orange toe nail polish since there’s no way I could pull of the black. 😉

      Yesterday I heard someone mention Candy Corn toenail polish. Like they did the orange, yellow and white deal, and it looked awesome. You should try it!

    What a cool look. You should have asked for some additional decoration. Why wouldn’t they have something on your list especially for Halloween. I love your flip flops too! Very stylish!

    Lisa, your prose is spew-worthy and ‘rofl’ as the texting teens surrounding me might say. You’ve got quite a knack for wordsmithing; every post has been a gem; so thrilled to have discovered your blog! Plan on posting the other piece before month’s end. Yowza, tick tock! 🙂

        Somebody’s gotta explain that whole cyclist-shave-your-legs thing. (Is this going to embarrass me? I don’t care, I still need to know.)

        And, for the record, all my boys painted their nails (typically crazy colors, which of course I happily provided) for years. Of course now we’re having arguments about facial piercings. (We want them to wait until after they test out getting a job for the first few times…)

    Been meaning to do a blog about the leg-shaving thing.. it’s actually more like brush-hogging lol.. but work has been so absolutely crazy lately I haven’t had time to breathe.

    Short answer: peer pressure, hero emulation (and it makes muscle-tone look really buff.)

    Long answer: easier for the massuer, scars heal better, bandages don’t stick, embrocation oil/sunscreen goes on better, etc.

    The first time is really creepy and you wonder “what have I done to myself?” and you are *very* insecure and self concious about going out in public (in shorts), but after a week or so it seems perfectly normal and you don’t think twice about it.
