Hey people! A short one today, I don't have much time. But it's a very special day today, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien would celebrate his 120th birthday today! As my regular readers have already noticed, Tolkien means a lot to me and I'm a complete fantasy geek.
We're celebrating his birthday today with our Tolkien Society, as every year, and of course I needed to do a mani just for my favourite Professor on the planet. I wanted something green again, but this year I wanted it to be mossy green. I planned to top it with mossy glitter, to bring in the extra bling, but to my great surprise China Glaze It's Alive is so opaque, it looks like I'm wearing it alone, not over Zoya Dree.
And these are REALLY thin coats of It's Alive! When I took a closer look I could see Dree peeking through, but apparently it's such a good base colour for It's Alive, it blends right in. Anyway ... this reminds me of mossy forest ground, with forest being a bit gloomy. I didn't want to take typical forest green, just to keep it more interesting. Plus, It's Alive is probably my favourite polish of this year. One of them, at least.
Anyway. Tolkien gave me so much with the world he created. Happy birthday, Professor! Wherever you are, hope you are well and happy.
Thank you for reading!
