This Week’s Nails – OPI, The Thrill of Brazil

November 5, 2011

This is a great bright red, a little brighter than I normally wear. My main reason for this color is that I am going to a Mad Men themed birthday party this weekend and I wanted something that was kind of retro.

This is also a little bit of a tribute to my late Grandma. As far as she was concerned, nail polish and lipstick only came in one color – red. She told me many times that when she was growing up, she thought that if a little red looked good, a lot would look better! :) I always remember her having red lips and red nails – and this was one of her favorite colors. Even in the last few months of her life in the nursing home, everyone always made sure that her lipstick was on and her nails were painted. So sweet.

I like to think this is where I get my nail polish obsession from. :)

    Sweet story! I must admit, I LOVE red!! In college I was known for going to aerobics with umbros (that is dating my story!), t-shirt, tennis shoes, hair up, and bright red lipstick! I have calmed down….a bit. *SMILE* Lovin’ your blog!
