I find that just looking at bright vibrant colors invigorates my mind and excites my senses. Color actually makes me happy, supremely, giddily happy, particularly when it's in a liquid form like nail polish! ;o) Yes, I know it sounds kind of vain but I LOVE nail polish for just the exact reasons I mentioned above. It also helps that with a great selection of color I can make my nails look awesome! I actually have a lucite holder with shelves that mount on my bedroom wall to showcase all the cool colors I have collected over the years. It's like looking at all the watercolor paints I have in my palette, just in pretty little bottles. It's a rainbow of color!
I have a ton of colors, turquoise, red, taupe, gray, fuchsia, purple, lavender, wine, pink, grass green, olive, black etc. in both plain and glitter. It's a real love affair, I must say. (Oh, I can't wear orange or yellow, they make me look dead.) I'll tell you something that I'm sure you'll use against me later... I have them color coded. Yes, I'm a nut, but you love me anyway, right? The gradation of color on the wall almost looks like art and seeing it every morning as I get dressed truly does ding my bell and make me smile. I'll admit though, it sure is hard to pick a color to use when you have so many choices! I try to be fair to all the colors and use them equally (I mean I wouldn't want a color to feel unloved) but it seems that my penchant for green and pink tends to rule most times. Do you think the other colors will forgive me??
Anyway, I thought I'd paint up my favorite colors of nail polish into my Moleskine. Even in the Moleskine they make me happy. :o)
I'll be back soon, I want to review the Stillman & Birn sketchbook paper I generously got from Dion and I also hope to finish a book for "review and art" to participate in The Artful Readers Club over at Art & Sole. It'll be a fun and busy week!
Talk soon? Yes?? Good!
