Happy Valentine's Day! Nails
When I was younger, I viewed Valentine's Day with a certain amount of disdain. I liked to maintain that it was no different than any other day of the year, that a holiday didn't make you love someone more or less. You know, I was the type that grumbled something awful about how it was a holiday set up by the greeting card industry and florists. To me, the best part of Valentine's Day was the clearanced candy at Target the day after. Cheap chocolate, for the win.
Now, for the first time ever, I'm equally excited/sad for Valentine's Day. I'm just genuinely happy to celebrate holidays for the sake of celebrating. My boyfriend, Morgan is trying his hardest to be romantic from 2,000 miles away. Self described as 'terrible at romance', his efforts are quite cute in a honest, blundering sort of way. For instance, he told me he was going to get me roses because he didn't know any other flowers. He was quite excited when he found out about lilies from the florist.
I was thrilled when I came home to a beautiful arrangement today!
I'm a tiny bit sad, not feeling particularly lonesome or anything. It's just that I wish we could do things as a couple that aren't possible at the moment due to the distance. It doesn't even have to be romantic or sexy, I'd be plenty happy ordering Thai food and watching re-runs of NCIS (do I know how to have a good time, or what?).
I made Morgan a card with Microsoft Paint that promised bacon roses. (Yes. Bacon. Roses.) He said I was the greatest ever. He bought me a ticket for CA last week, I can't compete with that.
Oh right- the nail polish. I used a white franken as the base and free handed the heart rings with Zoya Mia and Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Golden Tourmaline.
Happy Valentine's Day!
