Terrible tippy toes
Today, I embarrassed myself and with a glass of red in my hand, I take this time to apologise to those I’ve sinned against. To be subjected to sad-looking unpolished toe nails was an intentional wicked act on my part. You did nothing, none that I know of yet, to deserve to be punished in such a cruel unusual manner. In my defence my toes were freshly waxed and the nails were taking a breather from nail polishes. Going forward, in a perfect genteel manner befitting of #Foschini #FashionFriendsSA, I take these four vows in earnest.
First, I shall endeavor to keep my cool and try to never, take my shoes off in public, even if to throw them at a politician or annoying colleagues that grate my liver.
If I do fail, only perfectly manicured feet shall be revealed to my audience and my shoes will only come off when service delivery, like beating sense into a human hovering at my desk while I am trying to do online retail therapy. In such a case I plead emotional distress and mental instability.
Lastly, in case of a closed-shoe-swapped-for-an-open-toe emergency, my daily travel toiletry bag shall never be without:
- A nail polish – I love Maybelline Colorama, they offer a great pop of colour in just one application and they dry pretty quick
- Nail polish remover mini wipes – Ackermans, Dischem and Mr Price has them for a steal
- As well as a nail file to the keep my nails in shape – Essence offers a fun and pocket friendly range of nail files.
That was my beauty faux par, my confession and resolution to do better to look better. Any less than perfect moments you want to share? I am all ears and terribly interested.
With love & respect,
