Hello darling readers! I'm a happy girl today. Worked all day and came home to comfy pants and a cupcake sock. (the other has zigzags.. we know I don't match my socks!) I wanted desperately to go polish shopping but I didn't get to work at all for the past two weeks, so my paycheck was $0... and Valentine's day is right around the corner. My poor sweet boyfriend is getting handmade gifts and I'm probably wearing jeans to dinner. Ha! We'll see.
This polish is OPI Ink, a gorgeous dark purple with a pinky purple microglitter. The formula was perfect- opaque in two coats. It dried quickly too. Keeping with the Valentine's Day theme, I decided to do a heart but not in the traditional pinks and reds; the heart for this mani is gold, inspired by my boyfriend. I'm a sap (seriously it's friggin revolting) and I could write poems and novels about how crazy I am about him, but instead I'll give you a just little smidgen, and then we can all groan in unison and move on! ha.
IT'S ABOUT TO GET SAPPY, FEEL FREE TO SCROLLLL TO THE SWATCH'EMS
Brian and I met in October of 2010, and twenty minutes into our first date I was enraptured like I had never been before. I just backspaced a whole paragraph of sappy BS. Moving on. Brian was such a breath of fresh air, and it took about two months for me to learn what that elusive L word really felt like. I didn't love him like I love cupcakes, or like I love kittens, or like I love nutella... and I friggin LOVE that shit. No, what I felt was overwhelming, and it astounds me to this day. This love is so scary and bright and bigger than me, or him, or the life we have. It's the knowledge that I would lay down and die for him without a second thought. DAMN.
I have a serious skin condition and most of the time I feel awful. I've had surgeries, procedures, radiation, countless meds and tears and doctors. I don't wish I didn't have it- It makes me who I am. But I never thought someone would love me past my scars. He does, and I know he always will. He's selfless, he's kind, and he truly has a heart of gold. okayI'mdoneIpromiseI'msorrrryyyy
HEY OPI Ink, you're pretty.
|why are you so beautiful|
|there's a glare but GAH look at that shimmah|
The heart is done with a little heart stamp from a BM plate filled in with China Glaze Blonde Bombshell, a gorgeous gold glitter that I can't stop looking at.
