Kim’s UV Toes

Did you ever have a friend ask you to make her toes famous on your fancy interwebs blogging site and you said you would and then you totally didn’t post the pictures?  I know, it’s a tale as old as time, right?

Anyway, the story went like this: I was at my friend Kim’s place and she was super excited about her toes.  She was all “check out my toes!  What’s on my toenails?”  And I looked and this is what I saw:

And so I was like, “Um, there’s nothing on your toes,” and she ran outside and said, “Come and look at them now!” And I looked and this is what I saw:

WTF??

Turns out, she had bought some UV-activated nail polish.  It looks clear until it gets hit with UV rays and then it turns into a colour.  I said that only thing one can say in the face of such thing: “I’m totally blogging that.”

This, mind you, was back when we had sunshine.  I didn’t say I was going to blog it soon.

    • Nope, she got it on a trip to Palm Springs. Del-Sol does sound familiar.

      Dare I ask why you know that? Oh wait, you used to work on cruise ships! Is this a common thing on cruises?

      • Not on the cruises, but in ports. They're all over the Caribbean (and even in Alaska). The cruiselines have partnerships with certain retailers onshore — they'll include coupons for free stuff in port shopping guides/shopping books, and people will stream into the stores while in port. Del Sol is one of these. I got a free Del Sol bag on our Caribbean cruise, and I picked up a few t-shirts for the neices (getting free sunglasses too).

        We saw Del Sol in Monterrey, CA too so I'll be it was in Palm Springs.
