How I pick my nail colors

Yep, two posts in one day. I just wanted to post a very quick post on my very complicated way of picking out my next manicure color. I go through my drawers, pull out 4 maybe 5 colors I want to wear, normally I just can't decide on one. Sometimes I line them up on the table, sometimes I paint one nail in each color. At that point. I call over my trusty 5-year-old assistant to do the final decision.

At this point, we resort to the very scientific "Eenie, meenie, miney, moe" technique. However, results usually cannot be replicated, because "moe" tends to move around to the color he likes best. This is my favorite way to pick out polish. On the instance above, here's a closeup of the color he picked out for me.

About 75% of my nail colors are picked this way. He enjoys it, and I get a kick out of it. Today, he wanted me to do blues. I gathered about 10 of my blue polishes and he picked his favorite - Butter London's Victoriana (for a later post!).

Oh, how I adore this boy. My little spitfire.


  1. That's such a cute way to decide which colour you're wearing next!

  2. I love the combo you guys went with! I usually give my boyfriend a few names of polishes I've chosen from my to be trieds and then he chooses based on the name :)

  3. Hey, I do something similar but I am too lazy to paint before so my 4 year old has to pick from the collection of bottles.

  4. :) He really loves picking out the colors. He calls himself my Expert Color-Picker.
