"Mom, fall is the best time of year," my daughter announced.
"I like fall, too," I said. "The leaves look so pretty on the trees, and the air has a different smell."
"Yeah, but do you know why I really like fall?"
"Why?" I asked.
"Because of fall fashion! There are new clothes, new shoes, new makeup, and new nail polish colors!"
I looked at the girl. "Do you really need more nail polish?"
I walked to her room to find out exactly how much nail polish she had. Do you know how many bottles were lying around? Twenty-six!
"Girl," I said. "This is ridiculous! You absolutely do not need more nail polish!"
"But Mom," she objected. "Those are spring and summer colors. I need fall colors!"
A girl after my own heart! Got to stay seasonally current!ReplyDelete
I guess if I polished my nails, I'd have that many, too! (I don't, because my nails have to be kept short for playing the violin, and to fuss with nail polish would be a major nuisance.)Delete
Wow, 26? A nail polish hoarder hahaReplyDelete
Yes, she is! She likes to go to the local drug store to see the new shades.Delete
My daughter (older than yours) would agree. She has a nail blog and constantly swaps colours. I think she has hundreds, but I'm not sure.ReplyDelete
I'm not a nail person, having an art background, my nails never were in good shape. They were full of charcoal, printer's ink, etc. I do like the amazing array of colours and lovely designs my two daughters create.
I bet your daughter has really pretty nails! I've seen some of the neat things they do to paint them.Delete
You do need to be seasonally correct.ReplyDelete
I have to admit to loving fall and winter clothes. It's a curse that I now live in a place with no fall or winter.
I've always admired girls/women who pull off different shades. 26 is a lot but I'm sure it's fun to match them with clothes and the season. I keep mine short and color free because whichever color I put, I'm sure there'll be lead/ pencil smudges all over my nails at the end of each day.:)ReplyDelete
I keep my finger nails color-free. It's too much of a hassle to keep them short for playing the violin/viola and maintain the nail polish.Delete
Love the post, I love the song Forever Autumn it says such alot.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment much appreciated.
You're welcome for the comment. I'm not sure I've heard the song Forever Autumn. Maybe I have, and I just don't recognize the title.Delete
She's all right.ReplyDelete
She's a girly girl!Delete
Fall is my favorite season too. And that's a lot of nail polish!ReplyDelete
Fall is my favorite season. I think for a girl who's twelve years old, that's a little excessive!Delete
We all need fall colors!
She sounds wonderful!
She's a very stylish young lady. I could learn a thing or two from her!Delete
wait till the winter comes....ReplyDelete
More nail polish!Delete
I...think I own more nail polish than your daughter. *hides*ReplyDelete
Oh my! ;0)Delete
Where does she put it allReplyDelete
She has a three-tiered night stand shelf next to her bed. It holds all her cosmetics and girly things.Delete
Wow, that's a lot of nail polish! : )ReplyDelete
Yes it is - more than I own! I think I have a grand total of two bottles! (If I need a different shade, I just ask to borrow one from my daughter!)Delete
She is smart -- that daughter of yours.ReplyDelete
I just saw my neighbors in their fall colors too. It seems as though I'm the only one left wearing summer colors. I think I'll change it today.
Time to get with the program. ;)Delete
(Don't worry, I'm still in summer mode, too!)
