When we were maybe 8 years old, our family took a winter vacation to North Carolina for an en masse ski trip. And by family we mean the whole she-bang; aunts, uncles, ugly cousins and dogs all piled into one cabin. We were never graceful creatures and the age of 8 we were particularly gangly. Unfortunately, this wobbly way of walking also meant we were totally unfit to be skiing. And in the one day we attempted Olympic greatness, we hit the same damn safety fence at least 14 times entertaining our family and on-lookers alike. We have the forehead scars to prove it. So now we stay off the mountain resting comfortably next to an artificial fire admiring the faux snowfall Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven Nail Polish ($18) provides.
