Today's nails are totally brought to you by my sister's stash. Bossy Boots was part of the 2012 Spring/Summer Butter London collection. Yep. A whole YEAR before mint was a thing... :)
I know last year's color of the year was Emerald Green, but it might as well have been Mint Green. Everywhere you looked... there was mint, totally soaking up its moment in the sun. Spring and Summer 2013 were FULL of it, and honestly, the forecast doesn't look too different this year. Pastels are always big in Spring, a breath of fresh air after all those vampy shades and neverending snowfalls.
SO. I borrowed this shade a very loooong time ago, and up until a week or two ago, it sat on my desk at work. For a full two seasons, we had a staring contest. Short story, I blinked, and Bossy Boots won. Sunshine and degrees above 50 will do that to a girl. :)
Bossy Boots is a celery green creme polish, and it reminds me of a GAP bookbag purse I had in high school. That was also celery green, and believe it or not, I had socks that matched it perfectly. (Don't even get me started how I totally used to wear birks with socks like it was going to catch on or something. ahem, FETCH*.) Celery Green is a pretty color, and I really like this shade on me. It's a leafy yellow-leaning pastel green that reminds me of the pastel green... (Tantrum, I think?) in the original Hard Candy polishes from the 90s that I could never find. You know, the ones with the cute gummy rings? Anyway... nothing says Spring like a little pastel nostalgia. Pastalgia**, anyone?
What do you think of Bossy Boots?
