1. That the souvenir be a coffee vessel
2. That the souvenir feature a lobster prominently (I associate New England with lobsters...as well as with the Kennedy family and Lorelai Gilmore)
3. That the souvenir be really, really kitschy
She returned with this for me.
My new lobster mug says, "Steamed til I get my coffee." PER-FECT. New favorite coffeetime mug.
(Please excuse the windswept hair)
To celebrate my gift I decided to choose a polish that reminded me of lobsters a little bit and that is also one of my favorites, China Glaze Sneaker Head from the summer 2009 Kicks Collection.
This polish change was rushed and I got Sneaker Head all over my cuticles. But I couldn't be bothered to do any clean-up, just like I apparently couldn't be bothered to brush my hair before I took a picture. I. Love. Sneaker Head. It's a lovely red creme with a generous amount of pink happening that makes it almost berry, but not quite. The formula is perfect, too. Is it unique? Probably not. But it has a permanent home in my collection (and I love it on my toes!).
That's it for today! As this post goes up I'll be knee-deep in research for my internship, and then I work at Coffee Inc. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and I think Sunday. It's a busy week for me, but I'm going to try to get another post up before the end of it.
Opinions on Sneaker Head? Does anyone else have any favorite polishes from the Kicks Collection? I'm partial to Custom Kicks and Breakin, myself, but...every color in that set was pretty awesome.
