The colors that caught my attention were the pastel shades on the left.:

These colors caught my attention because I feel old. Dated.
When I was in high school, I bought a nail polish from a delias catalog (see I am dating myself tenfold here - there were no delias stores back then, and that catalog was the only one of it's kind - for "alternative" clothes) by a company called hard candy. Mine was a mint green, not unlike the one pictured above, and it came with a ring around the top in the same color.

You must understand that I was living in a teeny, tiny little town and went to private school. Everyone was preppy and rode around in boats. This tiny little bottle of nail polish was my way of identifying with something that seemed to exist so far away. Grunge music and x girl. Music festivals and baggy pants.
So to see these pastel shades come back around again does bring a sense of nostalgia, of course. But does that mean I won't buy the mint green and re-live my youth? Nope. I will be on the look out for it as of now.
Would you wear these again?
