Impulse Buy

I have a confession to make. I've never gotten a pedicure (or a manicure for that matter) and the last time I painted my toenails was for my wedding 3 years ago. This seems sort of weird to say, but it is not something that I even think about...until last Friday.
I was at the gym on the treadmill, which conveniently overlooks a Target. I decided right then and there on mile 2 that I needed to paint my toes a fun color for a while this summer. 15 minutes later I was trolling the cosmetics aisles looking for the most economically priced polish that I could find.
Low and behold, SINFUL COLORS: PROFESSIONAL ended up in my basket and eventually on my toes. One foot was purple, the other blue. When the husband came home I asked him which one he liked better. I think his reply was non-committal and sounded a bit like "Ummm, wow, interesting."
No worries, I chose on my own and decided on the blue. The purple was not vibrant enough for this experiment and sort of looked like a sparkly princess polish. So, blue it was.
And here I am admiring my blue toes while kayaking.

Tell me, can a woman over 30 (barely) wear bright blue polish in the summer?

Heck yeah you can wear blue! I'm approaching the three-oh mark in less then a year and have no intentions on stopping w/ the fun summer colors. Now you need to try a pedicure! I never had one until I got married (forced by my cousin to do so, I might add) bc I hate people touching my feet, but now I go twice a year as a little treat.
