Tropical Polish

It is snowing again. Dumping obscene amounts of snow across New England. Boston’s suburbs are blanketed, school is shut down and the record books are quivering with delight at the new heights reached with the freezing cold white stuff.
reversecommuter could choose to wax on about Snowmageddon 2015, but instead I’ve chosen to zero in on tropical nail Polish offerings.

What’s better than a brilliantly cute named, beach friendly OPI nail polish to take the brrrr out of February?

Isn’t it amazing the power of a good pedicure? Practically transports you to a beach!

Full Disclosure – reversecommuter has escaped the snow for the next couple of weeks…and brought the polish for touch ups!

O.W.O. City/Beach Style

Ever been to a busy bustling city that has a sandy beach one block away from your hotel?

reversecommuter is experiencing this strange phenomenon right now in Chicago…and liking it!

Perfect outfit to take you from surf & sand straight to shopping at THE coolest shop in Chitown?  Shan bikini, 100% Capri linen oversized shirt, Rag & Bone cut offs, Havaiana flip flops and a Panama hat to cover up the post-swim hair!

P.S. Completely addicted to the contents of this bottle.  Harmless Harvest’s Pink, raw, delicious coconut water (did you know it is better than sports drinks to replenish and rehydrate?).  Can you think of a better way to recover from the beach and strengthen up for shopping?!?!?
