non-essentials and “sinful colors”

It’s time for a fall clean-out, reassessing what’s essential and what’s not. Part of that includes ruthlessly tossing stuff out, including at least ten bottles of bright red nail polish (how did that happen?). One brand is indeed called “Sinful Colors,” by the way! Lightening my load feels simply divine. And there’s a nail salon on every corner of town with plenty of reds and other “sinful colors” of their own, should I choose to partake.
