China Glaze No Way Jose

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I'm pleased to be wearing China Glaze No Way Jose today, which is another rediscovered treasure. It's a light, somewhat pink purple glass flecked polish from China Glaze's Tequila Toes collection a few years back. It applied very well and I added a third coat for opacity, which did the trick, before finishing it with Poshe. This is No Way Jose.

    I love this polish. There's something about the shade of No Way Jose that thrills me, and I really don't know why. When put in combination with a glass flecked finish, I swoon, tilt my head sideways with both hands on one side of my face, and burst into song:

    No Way Jose
    How I love him
    He's got something I can't resist
    But he doesn't even know that I exist

    No Way Jose
    How I want him
    How I tingle when he passes by
    Every time he says hello
    my heart begins to fly

    I'm in heaven
    I get carried away
    I dream of him and me
    and how it's gonna be

    Other fellas call me up for a date
    But I just sit and wait
    I'd rather concentrate

    On No Way Jose
    'Cause I love him
    And I pray that someday he'll love me
    And together we will see how lovely heaven will be


    If you don't recognize it for the tune, that's Johnny Angel, a Shelley Fabares song from the early sixties. It's the most melodramatic song I could come up with to complete my declaration of love for No Way Jose - when it comes to the stanza about sitting and waiting, I picture her singing it from the bushes outside Johnny Angel's window with binoculars in her hand, which makes it very funny to me.

    That is No Way Jose and a little song for it that will likely get stuck in your head today, so I think my work here is done. Until next time, Dear Reader, love and nail polish to you!
