Heidi (AKA Retro Redhead) is our “Type A” store manager at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Everything has to be perfect and orderly (LOVE HER), so you can imagine she’s a bit obsessive when she sets her mind to something. Last summer her signature nail polish color for the season was yellow and this year she was in search of the perfect turquoise. She was on a mission! She wanted a bluey, minty, oceany freshness for her toes. So, first a bottle of “Model Behavior” from Sally Hansen came home with her.
“I hoped she would behave and be the summer color that I wished for”, said Heidi. “I tested her on my nails since I wasn’t getting my pedi for another day or so. Off to work I went wearing my favorite, leopard, bow ring to put the color test. Hmmm…it’s blue, but more electric than ocean. Not bad, but not the perfect summer signature color.”
Another day, another search, and then home with another bottle of polish. Could “I Need A Refresh-Mint” from China Glaze be the one? There was no time to test this on her hands, so out the door to her pedicure appointment she went.
“I closed my eyes while Nancy the nail lady painted away.” Tells Heidi. “And guess what? It’s the most perfect turquoise! My toes are smiling and so am I.”
I’m so glad that “Retro Redhead” found her color for the season before she started testing paint on other things (like the dressing room walls at Roadkill). So if you want happy feet, do what Heidi did and paint your toes turquoise!
