One of the quirky little things I like to do before races is to make sure my nails are painted and that my hair is straight. I will literally get up an extra 15 minutes early to flat iron my hair. Ditto with going to bed late to make sure even my toes are painted – you know since everyone sees your toes during races.
I’m crazy in to purples lately and had planned to wear a lavender shade on Monday but found the perfect nail polish for Boston. It’s a light gold sparkle with blue flecks! It is made by Essie and the name is “On A Silver Platter.”
A marathon finish won’t be given to you on a silver platter – it must be earned – but this nail polish can be purchased at Target.
