I'm back from the beach. It was wonderful. I still have to take the pictures off of my camera. I hope to share them when I finally do that.
I did the ultimate nail polish test: SAND, SALTWATER, and SUN. I wore Zoya Maya on my toes and Zoya Jane on my fingers (swatches coming soon) they lasted the entire time with only minor scratches & chipping.
On another note, I wore so much sunscreen I felt like a pale greasy blob the whole time. At the same time I knew I was saving myself from future foes such as skin cancer & wrinkles. Since I don't get tan I have to ritually apply sunscreen every hour to defend my milky fair complexion against UVA & UVB rays. I don't tan, but I get freckles. Lots and lots of beautiful freckles. This is a saying that my mother loves and always told me growing up:
Now my tan husband lovingly repeats this phrase to me:) Embrace your differences & quirks!
Enjoy your weekend!
