OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know?

One last time, ladies and gents! Mostly ladies, a few gents, I think. Go enter my Give Clean Water Giveaway! It ends tomorrow! That's right, tomorrow, I begin fasting for 30 hours. I'm kinda scared. I've been training. I find I can go 5 hours without eating before I get a lil' light headed... That's not even a quarter of the entire time. Eeef.

I love this polish! It's so awesome! Can you tell? I am excited. Hahaha. Wooden Shoe is a gorgeous, creamy milk chocolate brown creme with gold shimmer. That gold shimmer is so nice. I love it. I highly recommend you click the picture to see the hi res version.



Two coats with topcoat. Applies smooth and flawless. I have bubbles, but that's from my super thick bottle of Poshe. Sorry about that. Time for some thinner.

Morbid Thought of the Moment: So I was thinking last night, what would you want to happen to your polish when you die? I know, totally morbid. But I've been feeling the morbid lately. I know many of us must have a lot of polish at this point. And probably lots of friends and family who aren't interested in our little obsession. I personally have more than 600 bottles. And it takes up quite a bit of room. So if you suddenly were no longer of this world, what would you want to happen to your nail polish?

I think the only person who would really have any appreciation for my collection is StBFF. I'd will it to her and she can do as she pleases with it. Ideally, I would like for what polishes she isn't interested in keeping to be donated to a museum. But I can't really see a museum taking my collection. Most fashion museums deal with textiles primarily, or shoes, costumes, hats, jewelery, etc. Not make-up. Which is too bad, because nowadays the packaging for make-up itself can be works of art. Maybe someday I'll start one. Who knows.

  3. Are you going to stuff your face an hour before the fast? I did that with some high protein stuff. Stay away from quick acting carbs if you do that, or you'll be really hungry later :( I really like this polish too. It's really nice.

    1. That's the plan! I have about 3 pork chops and 2 hard boiled eggs prepped for right before.

  4. I love your morbid thought! I have it all worked out for me. I have two daughters, now 7 and 9 years old. Just some months after I started to collect polishes (they were 5 and 7 then) they made a solemn agreement that they will split the polishes evenly between them when I die. Mummy laughed a little when she overheard.. :-)

  5. Your morbid thoughts are not this morbid - death is a part of life. It's legitimate to wonder what will happen to all the junk we have accumulated during years, no? I'm not too worried about my polish collection in fact. I know my sister would take care of what is in my Helmers. I don't know if she would sell it, keep it or eventually trash it. Your passions die with you I guess, it's the curious vanity of existence. To tell it in a brutal way, at this point I don't think I'd be here to care about some liters of paint, my record collection, or my books. I'm actually more concerned about letting my body behind. My body no more as myself but as a manipulable object behind me. I'd love it to secretely disappear in the cycle of nature and life with my last breath, usefully nourishing new trees and flowers, without any creep can get it emptied from my gutters, manipulate me like a dead meat doll, make me up out of style like I'd never made up alive and all those ritual burial things. You feel morbid, you say?

    1. Wow, those are some deep thoughts. I think those are less morbid and more... Thoughtful.
