Pedi-CUTE OTD!

Today the weather was so pefect-o! I didn't get a chance to go outside and indulge in the sun yet, first step was to give myself a mini pedi-cute! So I dipped into my nail polish bin and found all the colors I've been purchasing over the winter, anxiously waiting for summer. So today I finally got the opportunity to let my toes free. My favorite nail brand is Essie. I usually go for funky colors because I've collected so many pinks and neutrals along the way, I like my toes to have some shock value now. The color I chose was Essie-Shelter Island. This is my only tattoo I have, so I like to wear sandals to show it off:

Story behind the tatt: I got this tattoo in memory of my sister, on her birthday 3 years ago. I am a baby when it comes to needles so this was a brave thing for me to do. I wanted to have a memory of my sister with me at all times. This tattoo is from a journal my sister and I shared when we were younger. She signed the journal "Lots of Love" and then her name. I went to the tattoo parlor and they copied her handwriting straight from the journal onto an ink based paper that they placed on my foot and perfectly sketched her hand writing on my foot, forever. So every day I walk, I walk in her memory :)

What's your favorite nailpolish brand and are you funky or more neutral with your shade picks?

  1. First of all, I love that nail polish color.

    Second, I absolutely love your tattoo and the meaning behind it. That is so special and a great idea, it looks so cute and carries so much meaning! What a great tribute to your sister! I have been thinking lately about getting a tattoo, (ankle area) also one that will mean a lot to me if I were to get it, but I haven't made up my mind, I guess I'm really scared of taking the plunge :-x

  6. That's a meaningful and nice tattoo.

    I've a lot of pink and neutral nail polish. I love bright colours but not something too crazy ;) My favourite colour at the moment is China Glaze For Audrey.

  7. @Jennifer: For me personally, I think it's very important to know that you want to get before you step into the tattoo parlor. But some ppl are wild and just go in and get anything. But I think you won't regret it as long as you means something to you. I blogged a post in January about how to cover a tattoo it's called "Most of the time it's what happened in Vegas" check it out. lol

    @MissA: I'm gonna google your fav color, want to see it! lol

    Thanks everyone, my bf actually noticed I changed my pedi today too because it was so bright lol

  19. everyone else noticed your pretty nail colour
    but what i noticed first thing is your pinky toes.
