There are hundreds of different colours to choose from, but I still pick the same one … OPI's Chick Flick Cherry.
Four more double spreads have been added to my One Little Word traveler's notebook: our trip to Jersey, the significant birthday I keep mentioning, a dinner party and the GoGo Getaway weekend … the TN is now so fat and bulky, it's actually quite hard to open flat.
