I've been trying to stay away from Sephora lately because I can't really buy anything right now and it's way too hard to look and not take stuff home. I'm shallow like that. But yesterday I had to pick up something at the mall and if you think I can find myself standing five feet from the entrance and not actually going in, well, you don't know me very well at all. It was like a magnetic pull towards the front displays. I was powerless to resist! And out of everything I saw in there, the one thing I really, really (really!) wished I could walk out with was Ciate's new Shell Manicure. It's the coolest looking textured nail ever with crushed shells that you wear on top of the polish (either on all your nails or on just one as an accent nail). It's available in three shades - Wish Upon a Starfish (a holographic white), She Sells Seashells (a pink multicoloured) and Mermaid You Look (a pretty purple). I'm not normally a huge fan of purple shades, but I LOVE this one. It's almost got a grey tint to it so it looks a little neutral and you could definitely wear it to the office if you wanted. I have a sneaking suspicion that it wouldn't last all that long on your fingers as an every day manicure because the shells seem like they would probably pop off easily, but when it looks that cool, I almost can't bring myself to care. I kind of just want to own it for the next special occasion I dress up for - wouldn't it be a great accessory for your favorite LBD? I seriously need this. Immediately. Quick, someone give me a reason $25 isn't too much to spend!
