For Audrey - my first blue in 20 years
I'm a lawyer. I work for myself, but I am still in court a lot of the time. Besides that, even though blues and greens are some of my favorite colors, they never appealed to me as nail polish colors. But since I have gotten back into wearing nail polish again (thanks to Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri topcoat) I have been reading makeupalley's nailboard more (always bad for my bank account!) and somewhere between http://www.ocnailart.com/ and the polish addict I discovered China Glaze's For Audrey. Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my favorite movies, so I loved the clever little "shout out" of the name and the tiffany blue box color. I had not worn blue nail polish since I was probably 8 or 10 years old, when I used to wear electric blue and hot pink nail polish in stripes. I loved color even as a kid! But I could not get For Audrey off the brain. SO I took a trip to Sally's and voila! They actually had it! I picked up some other goodies - naturally and went home to try it. Luckily my Konad kit came the next day, so I also experimented with that.
