all day margaritas

Imagine Joseph buying you both tickets for a tropical cruise.

With Amanda in college you have quite a lot of free time, Mary has the kids and she’s encouraging you both to go, so that leaves the both of you free to have your little paradise.

You both lounge about all day and sip margaritas watching the sun glimmer off the waves. You eat the finest foods they have to offer and at night you and Joseph crawl into an over sized bed with over stuffed pillows and roll around together until the buzzing feeling from your drinks inevitably puts you to sleep.

You are …. lo-fi!
You’re a blissed out babe who’s down for whatever, as long as it’s chill. Your big summer plan is to relax in a hazy dreamscape wonderland, preferably on the beach with some sand between your toes. Painted on your nails: tinted topcoats, matte metallics, and elemental shades.

You are …. a color chameleon!
You can’t be constrained by labels, man. Sticking to a single look is just not an option. Your summer is full of endless possibility, so your nails need to take you from day to night. You gravitate towards grainy, glassy nudes—but then you surprise everyone with a fluorescent pop on the tips.

You are …. high volt!
You’re intense, friend, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. You’re amped to have a supercharged summer full of sporty adventures and hitting up the social circuit. On your nails? Saturated colors with infinite shine.
