We Canadians love our winter accessories. From parkas, to toques (a.k.a. knit hats), we have made a fine art of bundling up for bad weather in style. In September, the Hudson's Bay Company (a store as old as Canada itself) released a pair of red,knit mittens in hopes of selling 1 million to support our Olympic team. Well, six months and 2.3 million pairs later, these mittens are the most sought after accessory of 2010. They're sold out on the website,sold out in stores and whenever they're replenished they sell out again!Canada is truly Smitten with Mittens.
I have a love hate relationship with mittens.I love them because they keep my hands warm,and I don't love them because they cover up my nails. I'm still on the hunt for my own pair of red mittens.I guess I'll just have to wait.
Which brings me to my other topic;Nail polish.
OPI is also Smitten With Mittens!
(corny,but it works :P)
This colour was released earlier this winter as a part of OPI's Holiday Wishes collection. It a beautiful claret-coloured polish with gold glitter. The glitter isn't as prominent as some of the other red glitter polishes (Ruby Pumps,for one),but the effect is no less dazzling. I only wish I'd purchased a back up bottle because it looks like it is sold out everywhere.
Just like those dang mittens.
