Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone.

I don't get pedicures that often. I'd say I average about four in a given year, so when I get one I usually go with something safe.  Red, pink, coral. You know, the colors that toes should be. The colors that I won't mind three weeks after I've been living with it. The colors that look good if I wear khakis or jeans, white shirts or black shirts, and if my shoes are brown or green. 

I rarely get the "flower" that is offered even though I think its awfully cute. 

So it was much to my own surprise when I gave in to my impulse to try something new.  And when I didn't ask the girl to change it after she started painting. 
See Exhibit 1. 

Do you see it? My toenails are purple! A shiny, shimmery purple!
What's that? You need a closer look? 

See Exhibit 2.

Talk about an adventure!  I'm not sure I'll be doing it again, or that I'll leave it on for a month, but I'm finding it kind of fun for a few days!

Yay for purple! I just did purple the other day, too! (But mine is a little more fuschia-y). Enjoy your super cute toes :)

I think it is a delightful colour! Way to take a leap! I get a pedi, um, only in developing countries which means I've only had like 4 in my lifetime.

What? This is the first time you've had purple toe nails? You haven't LIVED until you've had purple toe nails. Ha, ha, just teasing you, but they look fabulous! I love purple nail polish.
