Hey kids! I’m back from my mini vacay to Put-In-Bay, Ohio. The ultimate island party destination for us Lake Erie folk. It was a great time but not having a laptop or internet access was freaky. I had the shakes the first day or so but managed to survive. Twitter updates were my only link to the outside world.
If you’ve never been to Put-In-Bay on South Bass Island, I highly recommend it. It is home to the world’s 3rd longest bar (405+ ft), The Beer Barrel Saloon, in addition to 10+ other bars all jammed into a small town square. Between the campers, boaters and renters the tiny island draws thousands of 20 & 30 somethings every Summer weekend. Just don’t take the kids on a Friday or Saturday. The debauchery is not for young, impressionable eyes.
I had a fab time but wow am I dead tired. We plan this trip every year with friends from my days as a ride host at Cedar Point Amusement Park (the best coaster park on the planet!) but packing and planning and grocery shopping take a toll on me and the boyfriend. But getting to hang with my favorite party people make all the work worth it.
I couldn’t leave all the polish behind though; I may have ended up in a straight jacket. All kidding aside, one of my boys, Joel, is loving the look of painted toes. My friend Christine slapped a drunken coat of gunmetal gray on him in May and I noticed it being quite a convo starter with the ladies the following weekend. So he requested I bring a “manly” selection to choose from. Joel’s pick; the soon to be released Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Stormy Blue. It looked really cool and since he had to do his own toes (I wasn’t up for touching boy feet at 10 a.m. with a hangover) he learned just how hard good application is.
So I’m sure you’d all rather see the Fall polish collections than hear about my trip so let me tell you what’s in the works. I’m currently swatching/editing/reviewing:
China Glaze Rodeo Diva Flannel Fixation
China Glaze Operation Color
Color Club Musique
