This Weeks Nails

While the love affair I've had with summer nail colors has been great (you can read about it here, here and here) I am so (picture that "so" repeated 100x) excited about fall nail colors.

The first one I've purchased is from the OPI San Francisco collection.

I especially love it when they come out with a collection from a place I've been to. I got to visit San Francisco the summer of my junior year in high school. 

I got to see fisherman's warf and Alcatraz (from afar), I got to ride in a trolley (and sing the "Rice-er-oni" theme over and over). I even got to ride in a cab down that really windy street (I forget the name). But the thing I remember most about it was the wind and the fog.

It was very windy that day. All the pictures my dad took of my mom, sister and I have our hair blowing completely sideways into our faces. I remember getting to wear a dress that was basically spaghetti strap. 

I wasn't allowed to wear spaghetti strap, so this gray dress with it's 2 inch wide straps and ill fitting body, it was my favorite and made me feel so grown up. 

I also remember not being able to see the Golden Gate Bridge very clearly because of the fog, so the fact that #thisweeksnails are named "Haven't the Foggiest" from the San Fran collection is so fitting.

And the fact that it's a metallic silver? Well that just makes me feel close-to-spaghetti-strap cool all over again.
