I don't know if I'd be as horrified about my attraction to Justin Bieber's nail polish if I didn't get hung up on grammar.
Although I probably would. Wouldn't I?
Also, I know my hand looks kind of deformed and clenchy, but it's kind of hard to take a normal looking photo of your own hand while trying to show your nails. You try it. I'm not kidding.
So I was in Target all by myself and just that fact alone felt like magic and then I didn't have time pressure and so I headed over to the nail polish section. And driven by my love of all things shiny and sparkly, I immediately noticed this clear nail polish with large silver sparkles. Exactly what I neeeeeeed.
Upon inspection, it was Justin Bieber for OPI. His One Less Lonely Girl collection.
Did you know about this? I didn't. Which was OK with me, really.
One Less Lonely Girl. Naturally, I was all: It really should be "One Fewer Lonely Girl." Girls, as we all know, are nouns you can count. In which case, fewer is appropriate. Not less. Unless, of course, she's just less lonely when she's with you. But still lonely. In which case, you're still an idiot.
An idiot whose nail polish I really like.
The specific name of the concoction I chose is Make U Smile. From the Justin Bieber One Less Lonely Girl collection.
But...it was so...full of prettyshinysparkly! I put it in my basket. I carried it around the store. I liked it, and yet, it was so stupid.
I texted a friend. He said to walk away. I walked away...
And when I returned, it was gone. There was only one bottle to start with.
I thought about it for a whole week. Yes. Because I have nothing better to think about like my family, my job, pregnancy, nutrition, etc. I mean, intermittently. Not solidly.
But still. I spent a week of my life, time I will never get back, thinking about Justin Fucking Bieber and his glittery nail polish.
And then, when I dashed into Target to get snacks for the ride home from Thanksgiving, I minced by the nail polish aisle. And there it was! One of two bottles!
Made Me Smile!
My nails, they are less lonely now.
