NOTD~Gosh Dusty Rose & OPI Dulce de Leche (#3 Toasted Almond)

Posted on: March 22, 2012

This is #3 on the list of Top 5 Nail Trends (Allure magazine).
I have a half and half with Gosh Dusty Rose (on pinky & ring) and OPI Dulce de Leche on the rest of my fingers. My right hand is opposite.
Allure magazine has listed the top 5 nail trends for summer 2012. They are:
1. Hot coral
2. Lilac
3. Toasted Almond
4. Muted Teal
5. Creamsicle
I must say I can’t argue with this list. The example they used for the toasted almond look was OPI’s Did You Ear About Van Gogh from the new Holland collection.

Tom Ford’s Toasted Sugar (Tom Ford polish is $30 a bottle. Really?)

And from Zoya Farah

I like my take on the Toasted Almond trend. I’m also currently obsessed with the half and half manicure. I haven’t seen this on anyone else, and I don’t know what else to call it. It started with me not being able to decide between a pink and an orange last week, so I used both. I loved the effect. And as I said in an earlier post, I got so many compliments, I had to do it again. I’ve already planned my next half and half but I will leave that as a surprise. Do you have a better name for this style of manicure? I would love to hear it!
As a side note, I had a job interview this week. I originally had a baby pink polish but my favorite daughter told me that was a no no for an interview, so I changed to the Dusty Rose by Gosh for the interview. After the interview I added the Dulce de Leche. Fingers crossed on getting the job. I’ll keep you posted!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
