Before I worked at Fashionista, I was employed by a number of random organizations and companies–including but certainly not limited to Dunkin’ Donuts, the US Census, a pizza place (see my bio for how that played out), and Nestle Waters. It was at the latter that I discovered that one, people take their bottled water home deliveries very, very seriously; and more importantly two, this is my favorite nail polish ever.
See, one morning during my approximately five-week stint as an over-the-phone customer service rep back in 2010, we were given sample bottles of some lemonade that wasn’t going to be available in our region anyway. It was decent–but I really fell in love with the pretty, light purple-y accents on the glass bottle’s paper label. That day during my lunch break, I ran to CVS, empty bottle in hand, on a mission to replicate the color on my nails. I WAS A WOMAN POSSESSED.
Anyway, I found an exact match without having to look too-too hard–Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in ‘Lively Lilac’–and it’s been my favorite ever since. I’m actually on my third bottle–that’s how much I love it. It never fails to brighten my mood for reasons I can’t quite explain, but I don’t think I need to. It’s just a really lovely thing. In fact, I think I’ll put some on tonight.
