I have to say, as far as dads go, you're my favorite one. I might be biased, but we'll just leave it at that. Remember that amazon gift card you sent me? I know you may have thought I'd use it to enrich my mind in some way, maybe buy a book or even a DVD or something. But one word flashed through my mind when I held the card in my hot little hands: LIPPMANN. This might not mean much to you, dad. But to me it was an opportunity to own a ridiculously expensive bottle of nail polish and I jumped at the chance. I blew that whole gift card on this little bottle. Sometimes I tend to sort of build things up in my head. This is gonna be AWESOME, I thought as I eagerly awaited my package. And guess what? It's awesome.
You enabled this, dad. And so, thank you. I haven't been this excited about a bottle of nail polish in a very long time. I love everything about this. The nice minty-blue color, the little black hex glitter, the way the first coat of glitter gets covered up but sort of peeks through (three coats shown here). I have been nail-gazing allllll week because of this polish. It was something little (but kind of big because Lippmann) to get excited about in the middle of my finals distress.
Sadly it also makes me want to eat mint chocolate chip ice cream, which, as you know, is among my favorite ice cream flavors.
This polish will get a special spot in my stash (or in the vase on my windowsill I have taken to calling The Polish House).
Your favorite [only] child,
