Sephora by OPI Merry Me

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I'm a very, very late showing you Sephora by OPI Merry Me, one of the holiday releases from last year.  Since it's a ton of glitter in a cranberry red jelly base, I figured it was worth hanging on to until there was something to be all celebratory about.  It's none of the obvious stuff, certainly not an engagement or proposal - I'll tell you more after the picture so those who don't care can stop reading before I get there.

    Merry Me was just right after two coats, and every bit of glitter shines through.  It's like a violet red OPI Absolutely Alice.  It did require a few coats of top coat to be smooth, but that's not a big deal, especially for a polish this pretty.

    So what's worth breaking out a celebratory polish?  Today, it's been thirty days since I quit smoking.  In that time, I started a new job, had the new job become an ethics nightmare immediately and then quickly end, my parent's anniversary and Mother's Day came and went, I peacefully sent my then-beloved packing, a dear family member had cancer return (this time in her bones and lungs), and it's now May 10 and I have zero ability or viable plan for how to even pay my rent in June.  But I haven't smoked, and I'm going to celebrate that because it is worth celebrating.  The reason I offer the litany of stressful events is because life happens and so there isn't ever a convenient time to quit, and I wanted to illustrate the point that anyone who wants to can do it just the same.  I smoked my entire teenage and adult life, and I really do believe if I can do it, anybody can.

    That's the update for today, Dear Reader.  I'm off to finish up a batch of cover letters, have some coffee, not smoke, and admire my sparkly red manicure.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
