Go with the Lava Flow: OPI and being Slovak

What is your favorite Nail Polish name?


OK, when you are a little bit blue or you need a “pick-me-up” – getting a manicure/pedicure can do the trick. (unless you are Master and cannot tolerate anyone but dievca, touching His toes…)

dievca had to take a break from her pedicures to let her nails “breathe” (did you know nails need to breathe?). They dry out and get brittle from the nail polish and remover.

It had been 2 months of healing. Master didn’t mind because dievca’s toe nails were buffed and Her feet were soft, clean and neat.

But dievca delights in having her toe nails polished and half the Joy of a Pedicure (for dievca) is choosing a nail polish with a fun name!

She opened the new season with some words of Wisdom:


Go With The Lava Flow

And for her next pedicure, she’s going Central European!  Noteworthy – there is not a color named after Slovakia….why is that she wonders?….good skiing in Slovakia. Sigh.

Yes, next time she is going for the whole Kielbasa~

And finally if you are someone who is looking for the name of that nail polish shade that you used two years ago or you would like to see all the OPI/Essie/Etc names people could remember, dievca ran into this Blog during her research:

A dievca disaster….

dievca gets a manicure/pedicure when needed — about every three weeks.  she normally just gets the color on her toes because nail polish comes off her fingernails within 3 days.  Now, if she has a Gala or dinner scheduled – then she will put color on her fingers, too.

dievca was looking for something summery and different.  she tried a couple of colors on her finger nails and decided to go with OPI Hawaiian Collection: My Gecko Does Tricks.
It is a bright pearly green.


Which looks like crap on her toes….a disaster.

But, as Master is traveling for 3 weeks…dievca will survive with it…unless she keeps looking down at her toes and cannot take it anymore.

Sigh, but the Nail Technician did such a nice job~

Well…it does match her Sundance WILDFLOWER EMBROIDERED TEE:

and she can wear the Ecote Farrah Culottes with the K Jacque Black Cork Sandals

Alright…work it.

BTW — has anyone else had some disasters  with nail polish colors?
