Valentine's Day is usually pretty exciting. Dinner with the fiance and a movie or something of the sort. This year the fiance was back in IL and I was in NY so it was a bit different. The 13th saw me falling into a melancholy mood due to the thoughts of being alone the next day without the fiance, but it turned out to be a most marvelous day! It started with a productive day at work. Then, I went to knit night which was really fun and uplifting. I followed that with take out for dinner, a bottle of Shiraz and The Fellowship of the Ring. To top that all off, I was rocking a gorgeous sparkly red polish in the holiday spirit!
Dollish Polish is one of those great indie brands that I love to wear. Combined with the fact that the polish is named for Trueblood, I can't go wrong! This is 5 coats of "I wanna do bad things to you." I really should have thought to put a red base underneath so I would't need so many coats but in the end it was worth all the coats. The red has a hint of orange to it and there are a few holographic glitters thrown in is well. I can't stop looking at this polish and I fully intend to keep it on for another week (I haven't had any tip wear or chipping yet!). The only thing I am worried about is removing the glitter but I think it will work out alright.
Last but not least, I finished my Watson sweater. Since finishing the sweater, I have worn it every day. It is warm and thick and gorgeous and Watson so I am a very happy person! Now I am working on the sleeves of the Tinder cardigan. I hope to finish it this weekend so I can wear it to Montreal next weekend!
Until next time,
happy crafting and painting!
