pics : paint me red




Hi All -

One day early, it's time for another 'Love Thursday' and these photos come with a story from this past summer. I hope you like it because I had a really hard time taking these photos and couldn't choose just one.
  • We were leaving the next day for a long weekend at the beach.
  • I needed a deep red nail polish for our photo shoot, but was too tired to go to the store.
  • Scott was going and said he wouldn't mind getting it for me.
  • Sweet, right? It gets better.
  • He purchased the nail polish and thought about his color choice after leaving the store.
  • It wasn't quite right.
  • So, he went back and exchanged it for Revlon #730, Valentine.
  • He said he liked the color better.
  • I think it was the name.
Happy October!

xo, Cindy

PS I never used the polish because I couldn't apply it to my toe nails without looking like they were bleeding. I've kept it as a memento though! And no, Scott wouldn't do it and said so before I even thought to ask him ;).

PSS Don't forget the Vice Presidential Debates Thursday night. Should be interesting.

OOO I have that shade and I love it. I only put it on my toe nails though,since my nails are always short,and would look rather odd in that shade.
I can't wait for the debates on Thursday!!

That really is a sweet story. I don't see my husband doing that, although he does his fair share of sweet things.

yes, the debates. I will be watching.

What a great story. He is a great guy...

I love October everything seems so much crisper all of a sudden, so hang in there in the midst of market crashes, and political turmoil. Yes, we can.

Kyla said...

What a sweet story! I mean how many guys do you know of that would pick out polish for their significant other? ;) Love the photos!

cindy : quaint said...

Shalet said...

Awww - sweet. I have the hardest time painting my own nails too. That's why I stick with neutral colors. :o)

S.HOPtalk said...

Your hubby sounds like absolutely sweetest! Love the photo.

cindy : quaint said...

hi shalet - i used be more limber and able to get it on myself, but i don't know if girls do it themselves anymore.

suzanne - he is, but all this attention is definitely going to his head! i hope i don't have to do a 180 degree turn in the near future ;).
