The perfect color

I think I have finally found the perfect color. I can hear you now, "what color"?
You see, I've been searching for this color for years. Many different brands, all so close.
I've been looking for a color that matches my skin and when you don't have much color, that's hard to do.
This color (bubble bath) is perfect! The search is over.

My hands are tired again. I think because I hand stitched the boning into the "queen" dress. I also hand stitched the lining in, I think this was just too much for my hands. Today I need to get those hooks and eyes in. Tomorrow the "queen" is coming for another fitting so I need to ignore the ache and get busy.
But at least my nails look good while doing it!
Take care, Brandie

I think the mannequin look is harder than most people realize, especially considering all the different skin tones out there. Congrats on finding your color! Now you've brought out my polish addict side and I must go paint my nails.

I also have used a shade similar by OPI, called Privacy Please. For almost 6 years, and my nail guru still tries to get me to try some color! I am with you!

I'm with you, when i (rarely) polish my nails I use very neutral colors...except my toes. My fave there is a medium blue metalic that I want to paint my 58 suburban!
