My Cruise Mani/Pedi Choice

By on March 29, 2009

It’s not the brightest, sunniest Florida day I’ve ever seen but I’m on vacation so I really could care less. I’ve had some sort of rum punch concoction, a couple of Labatts and I’m feeling good.

We just had our lifeboat drill which means we’ll be pulling away from port soon and my internet access will go buh-bye but I want to thank you all for voting to help me choose my mani/pedi shades for the next week on board. See what I colors I went with after the jump.

Warning… feet ahead!

First, here’s the boyfriend and I in our room when we first got on board. I don’t think I’ve ever shown him before so here’s Mr. ALU. We’re celebrating our tenth year of being happily unmarried and I hope the next ten are just as amazing.

So I’m not one to show my feet on the web and if you’re offended, I apologize in advance. For one, there’s too many fetishists that have emailed me wanting to see them (eww) and second I don’t want to look at anyone’s feet, even my own, so why subject the world to them, you know? But in the interest of sharing, here’s my first and only tips/toes pose.

I decided to take your advice and go with oranges. They look better with a tan and pair well with a lot of the clothes I brought. Originally I had planned to wear CND Kumquat Dahlia on my tips but opted for a shimmer since cremes tend to dull quicker.

My combo: China Glaze Orange Marmalade (toes) with China Glaze Breakin’ (tips). “What’s Breakin’?” you say. It’s one of the new Kicks shades and it just works so well with Orange Marmalade. Don’t you agree?

I also brought my bottle of Lippmann Nefertiti along for the two formal nights since there’s NO WAY I could go 8 days without changing my polish. I know my mom, a major gold freak, will be happy to hear that. She told me the morning we left that she voted for this combo along with the majority of you so for once we agree.

Well, I’m off to grab a drink and watch the ship take off. Ciao bellas!

    Nice choice!! Many photos don’t do you justice, you look gorgeous here! But if I went on vacay, I probably would change colors every single day… that’s how I roll, I guess. It’s so hard to wear a color for more than 3 days for me.
