I know, a lot of you will think, euh, who wears a color like this still? Well – let me tell you that OPI just released “Hands of my Kielbasa” and I thought the same, but people like it.
It reminded me a liiiittle bit of Melon of Troy, a previous (aka much earlier) OPI release, one that I actually love to wear (Hands off my Kielbasa is fugly as hell if you ask me).
Melon of Troy is a, well, melon ice cream colored nail polish that has a frosty look to it, but dries without streaks. I decided to pair it with Sonoma Nail Art Tallulah, which is a mix or iridiscent and pink glitters in a clear base. Sounds simple but isn’t – Tallulah is a great addition to pretty much any base color!
I didn’t want to mirror the melon color of my nails in my clothes (plus, I don’t have any melon colored clothes) so I decided to go pair it with complementary colors.
Let’s take a second to talk about shoes, though. I once found strappy Escada sandals in shades of turquoise and green, which I terribly fell in love with. They were far too expensive for my student income so I didn’t buy them. The shoes I’m wearing here share the same fate: far outside my budget, so I left them on the selves. Fast forward two years later: shopping time in the outlet center – what do I find on the shelves? These shoes. For a bargain – because one shoe is a size bigger than the other!
Do I care? No. I just put a couple of extra soles in! Now I get to wear and enjoy these super nerdy old school shoes – and so far no-one noticed that I’m wearing two different sizes!
