I have to admit this Pink Wednesday stuff has made me realize I need to swatch more of my pinks. I usually have "swatch sessions" where I swatch a ton of polish at one time for this blog. I have folder I keep all my "non blogged" swatches on, and on other days besides Wednesday which ever color so to say "speaks to me" I blog about. I looked for a pink to talk about today, and I only have 3 other pinks swatches, so it looks like sometime this weekend I'll need to have a pink swatch session! I got this next Sally Hansen for sentimental reasons.
This color reminds me of the first polish I ever owned. My parents have owned a small business since 1989, and growing up they'd work on Saturdays, so I'd often spend the day with my grandpa or my aunt. On Saturdays, my aunt would take me to her nail appointments. It was fun for me because I got to look through the all the bottles and compare all the colors.
I often came across colors like the one above, and in the early to mid 1990's this is probably how cool colors ever got. I was memorized with how a pink color could have this purple flash to it. Now of course this would probably be considered dated, but I love it. I ended up buying a color like that with my aunt eventually. I have no idea what brand or what the color name was, but it was my first polish! Colors like this definitely have nostalgic and sentimental value to me.
I wasn't even into nail polish until the past few years, but I remember pretty much all my nail polish experiences!
Happy Pink Wednesday!
