Remember when I swatched OPI’s Royal Rajah Ruby and expressed that while it technically worked well with my skintone, I just couldn’t get into the shade? Well, color me mistaken. Check it out as a pedi shade!!!!
I had another shade that I felt similarly about, Deborah Lippmann’s Nefertiti - a gold flecked with bits of pewter – and the lovely Eugenia of Ommorphia Beauty Bar had a suggestion to try it out as a pedicure shade before dismissing it altogether. Though it didn’t work either way (and just last week I unloaded it, along with about 20 other polishes, on the perfectly polished Sparkled Beauty), ever since I’ve been giving any polish shades that just don’t float my boat a second chance on my tootsies. Royal Rajah Ruby was a resounding success!!! I absolutely adore this on my toes and I literally had to be careful not to walk into walls while wearing it, because I kept admiring my feet
Especially with these sandals, I just love love loved it! So, moral of the story – play around a bit before you completely give up on an item. I’m so thankful I did, as I’ve just found my fall pedi shade!
It’s just a quickie post today – I have two products that I’m insanely delinquent in showing you, but honestly – I’m just not sure I love them all that much! I’ve worn them both only once and have had them for over a month…I just don’t know how I feel about them, and without actually giving them a real chance, I can’t feel good about discussing them. But I plan to wear them again this week and I will finally make a decision. Could be that they’re just like the polish – I just haven’t found THE way to wear ‘em yet!
What do you do with products you’re unsure of? Do you play around with them and figure out ways to wear them, or do you just decide they’re not for you and return them (or give them away!)? And also – do you wear polish on your toes during the cooler months??
