As we prepare to gather as a family tomorrow to lay my grandmother to rest, on the eve of her 98th birthday – I realized something was off. My nails were chipped.
Trivial though it would seem, my Grandmother was known for her impeccably manicured nails (as is my Mother) and I thought it wouldn’t be fitting to show up in my current condition.
My G-ma was actually know for her overall elegance, that clearly surpassed just the quality of her hand care. She was always beautifully put together and I would really love to have seen her in her youth. The idea of her in the roaring 20’s thrills me.
As I knew a more somber occasion was upon us, I decided to tone down my colour choice.
Well…. Going from Neon down to just Bright and Sparkly really IS toning down in Nancy’s world.
Nain would be happy with my choice I’m sure 🙂
