Orly Ancient Jade

I had no plans to get any of the new Orly colors. Nothing really jumped out at me but my Dad bought me this.

Dad - I had alligator gumbo today.
Me - Yeah? Did you like it?
Dad - It tasted like pork.
Me - What type of pork?
Dad - General pork flavor. I liked it. It's better than snake and rabbit gumbo. More meat compared to a squirrel.
Me - Ah, Dad. You are the Dr. Dolittle of death.
Dad - *glares* I went to that lady store that sells nail paint.
Me - What?
Dad - You know, that store named after a lady.
Me - Sally?
Dad - Yes. I bought you a green since you like it but this is a more lady like green and not a snot green like you wear. The woman there said it was new.
Me - I don't wear snot green. Snot green is too pale. I prefer a more army green.
Dad - You should wear Air Force blue. I was in the Air Force you know.
Me - And fought the dinosaurs when they tried to take over America. What polish did you get me?
Dad - Here. Smartass.

I like it. It's no too stark but is still soft. I needed three coats but it smoothed itself out as it settled. It's pretty and, like my Dad said, is lady like but still green. It has a very vintage feel and reminds me of old Pyrex.

Oh my gosh! Your dad!!! *SNORT* What a guy! Can tell where you got your whacky (and completely awesome) sense of humor now!!! Growing up with those kinda dads you just gotta - part competition, part self-defense. ;) He sounds amazing. And abviously adores you. Thanks for the laughs so much. Really needed them today.

Your dad sounds awesome! He sounds so much like my father. I bet he and my father would get along great and have the oddest conversations. I must get this polish now, the more I see it the prettier it is. I passed the first time I saw it but I am thinking I must go back now. :)

You all think my Dad is funny (and he is) but he wasn't trying to be funny in the above conversation. He was serious which makes it even funnier. I think I'll keep him. Of course he now thinks he is a rock star with all the comments.

The conversation between you and your dad is hilarious!!!! And the polish he chose is awesomé!!!!

Mc Huggs March 23, 2011 at 5:20 PM

Love your dad, his comments and his thoughtfulness of actually knowing what you might like or not. Snort Green, LOL

I love the colour and the shape of your nails, very lady like indeed. Perfect shape and colour for your skin tone BTW. I can only imagine what he thinks of a straight guy who loves to paint his toe nails, former Army veteran, LOL

I just got the polish last week and I'm loving it. Also, that's so sweet that your dad bought you a polish!

purplegreenjoy March 23, 2011 at 10:48 PM

This is hilarious! You and your dad could team up and fight crime - with nail polish!

Kalee March 24, 2011 at 12:43 AM

Shelly March 24, 2011 at 4:07 PM

Joan March 27, 2011 at 3:20 AM

Aww, that's a GORGEOUS delightful shade! :D I love it!

Also, hahahaha, your conversation with your father is so amusing! You two are too cute! And also, "Dr DoLittle of Death". LOL!
