POLICE FILES: My first bride

October 19, 2010 by pam

Polish Police has launched a new service – helping brides choose what color of nail polish to wear on their wedding day.

It wasn’t planned, it really wasn’t.

Jill doesn’t just spend her time doing my nails and surprising me with polish, she’s a photographer and she runs an awesome toy camera shop. Jill shoots a lot of weddings and Marge, who is the sister of our friend Chris the glovemaker, chose her to shoot their wedding.

They had also scheduled an engagement portraits session weeks before the wedding and I tagged along with a couple of film cameras so I could shoot too.

After the shoot, we all sat down for an incredible dinner in their home, a dinner cooked by Chris, a dinner I still can’t stop thinking about. (The thought of that little Spanish sausage wrapped in that puff pastry just kills me.)

While they downed wine and I drank my cocktail, the subject of nail polish came up. “What polish are you wearing on your wedding?” I asked Marge. When she said she wasn’t sure, I told her I’d help her, promising to send bottles she could choose from.

I pored over my polish inventory and realized that while I had enough colors to keep a drag queen/two hundred giggly tweens/Katy Perry happy, I didn’t have too many nudes and bride-friendly colors.

But I was determined to find a good shade for Marge.

Days before the wedding and right before we left for our insane pig-chasing adventure in Legazpi, I sent Marge four bottles of polish.


Lippmann Collection Sarah Smile, Ulta3 Lily White, OPI Tickle Me France-y and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Petal Pusher

I was really hoping Marge would choose Sarah Smile.

I had my fingers crossed.

Marge married Luke on October 12.

After the wedding, I kept bugging Jill to show me the pictures and tell me which shade Marge wore.

It looked like Sarah Smile to me but I wasn’t 100% sure.

But Marge confirmed it. She did pick Sarah Smile.

I was so happy. Sarah Smile looked wonderful on Marge.

Congratulations, Marge and Luke! It was great to be a part of your special day in this crazy small way.

  5. Last weekend finally decided to look for the shatter nail polish and every place I went was sold out. Yesterday discovered it at our gift shop in the hospital where I work, there prices are typically high but to my surprise it was only $7.99. I polished my nails days before in a crimson color so I was kinda worried that it would not work well on my long natural nails. I was like a kid in a candy store my eyes brighten up as I watched the shatter take effect, posted a picture on fb and I am very happy with my purchase. Does make u think how did they do that?
