polish insomniac: Blue Week, Orly Blue Collar

Blue Week, Orly Blue Collar


Raise your hand if you have ever been to the 'burgh.


Anyone? Anyone?



If the Steelers and the Penguins (and the horrible, horrible Pirates) were not Black 'n Gold teams, then this Orly would be the offical color of Pittsburgh.


Don't get me wrong, I love Pittsburgh. But I never really truly realized exactly how "blue collar" it was until I spent ten years away, in "white collar" cities.



The great thing about growing up in an environment like this is that the people here really truly are great. They work hard, they play harder. We don't have too many "uppity people" here. I think living in Colorado may have actually made me forget what it is like to be surrounded by people who think how you act is more important than how you dress and what kind of car you drive. (Don't get me wrong I am planning on going back to Denver! I liked it there! I miss it!)



Suffice it to say that I slowly worked my way into debt trying to keep up with the Jones'. Now I am back, in the SAME place I was born, starting over, and for the first time I can say I am glad. Because I am getting back to me. Oh, except I do think it is fine to spend waaaaaaay to much money on polish! And I still want to go back to Denver!


I never purchased an Orly until this past year, and I must say that they are up there in my top 10 brands. Great formulas, great colors, and good sales at Sally's. What more do you need??? This one wore beautifully, I want to wear it again! Toes, maybe???
