Nude, but --

-- oh my dear and fluffy Lord, my horrific cuticles. I've about decided it's impossible to maintain decent cuticles when it gets to 107 every day. (High today projected 109.) This is WITH hand lotion and shea butter. They just crack and stick out and ugh.

So please forgive the crispy closeups of the dry hands?

OPI Dulce de Leche. I bought this thinking only that it was a nude-ish color that might be closer to my skin tone. I tend to the pink/red end, and most nude polishes look yellow on me. I wasn't in love with the polish, per se, only the chance of a good match.

Erm. Now I'm kind of in love with the polish. It's much prettier on than I had anticipated.

Later I'll play with stamping a bit more. Now I'm going to go heat up a bowl of olive oil and see if I can resurrect my crispy hands. ::sob::


  1. It's a really pretty shade for you. Stealth polish!

  2. I was really surprised and delighted with it! Now I'm going to ruin it by practicing stamping, but hey. *g* I have another new color to try today anyway.
