(a mixture of BYS Mint Condition and Bright Light)
As soon as the weather warms up enough to bare the ol' tootsies I like to get some funky nail varnish on to my toenails. The weirder and wilder the better.
This week I wanted something toxic. Something urban and nuclear-waste. Something neon and horrifically bad taste. So I was sitting outside and painting this on when I was joined by a friendly and furry lovely in the mood for companionship. She came purring over and flopped down beside me and as she blinked lazily at me it struck me that the crazy shade of my nail varnish exactly matched the golden-green luminosity of her eyes, how they appeared bathed in the reflected glow of warm sunlight off the bright new grass... at once the colour became less toxic to my eyes and suddenly one that was rather lovely, natural and beautiful.
... is there no such thing as an "un-natural" shade?
