Clear blue skies and humid temperatures in the 40s call for three things: 1. Air conditioning, 2. A swimming pool and 3. Watermelon. Actually, these are pretty much the only conditions under which I’ll eat watermelon, as I’m really not that fond of it. It’s a filler fruit, like honeydew. And cantaloupe just flat out makes me want to hit things. I’m clearly melon biased.
Except when it comes to this fun glitter topper, Whimsical Ideas by Pam’s Wacky Watermelon, a fun, summery favourite of mine that I layered over a pretty new acquisition, OPI’s pale turquoise creme, Sailing & Nail-ing. In the last week alone I’ve used this polish in three different manis, it’s that great.
I did have a bit of trouble with Wacky Watermelon in that it bubbled fiercely, leaving unsightly pockmarks all over my otherwise pristine manicure. I’m chalking this up to the unholy humidity we’re experiencing – I’ve actually noticed that none of my polishes behave all that well in these kinds of temperatures. Just like me!
