A few weeks ago, my father, brother, and I took a little road trip so that we could attend Elton John's concert. My dad is a HUGE Elton John fan, and since it's been a staple in our household since forever, I'm slightly obsessed, too. I can so vividly remember my father pushing me on the swing at night on our porch, singing I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues, or him playing Bennie and the Jets on the piano, or how exited we were when we bought the Lion King CD (CD! Not a cassette, but a CD! We were really movin' up in the world!)
Ol' Elton is known for his flamboyant, colorful, and, dare I say, AWESOME stage outfits, and I wanted to have a jazzed up mani on my fingers for the occasion.
I went with OPI Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry Collection, and I think it was a perfect choice.
Shep or Cotton. Hmph.
Fun fact: When I was three, I decided that I would marry Elton John. I remember telling my teacher, and she sent me to all the other teachers to tell them, so that they could all have a good laugh at my expense. In case you were wondering, it didn't work out between the two of us.
And now, think about it: How amazing would it be if Elton John collaborated with OPI? Based on his personality and former stage outfits? I think some pretty cool colors would come outta that collection. He seems like such a fun guy. Just my two cents.
