CougarTown

I'm what you might call "obsessedicals" with nail polish. Bold, neutral, shimmery, whore glitter; I'm the affirmative action of nail polish--I do not discriminate. 
So when I was perusing Tom Ford's new beauty line of polishes, I was ready to snatch them all up. However, at 10 times the price of a bottle of three-buck-Chuck, I was only ready to splurge on one to start. This color spoke to me, and not only because it's called Ginger Fire (although I'll be honest, it didn't hurt).
What you can't discern from these photos are the small flecks of shimmery gold throughout the bright orange color. It's just enough to keep it from being too flat. Or something. I'm just trying to sound like I know what I'm talking about, you guys.

I obviously had to paint my nails with this as soon as I got it, but I couldn't stop there. I decided a bold polish needed a bold lip. And eye. And outfit. And jewelry.  What I realized was, I needed to look like a cougar. 

And so with full red lip, heavy black eyeliner, my red and white striped Stylemint tee, the leopard infinity scarf Jenna got me and a jaguar-faced cocktail ring, I was ready to bring all the boys to the yard. And then tell them they were smelly, making a mess, and pissing me right off. Because that's the reaction the boys young enough to be equivalent to my 27-year-old cougar would elicit from me.

You're so much prettier than Courtney Cox too, don't forget that important fact. But really, your face looks top notch in this "pose". Has anyone ever told you that you're pretty?
