Nail polish: Zoya Dove
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE spring, but I was blessed in that un-blessed way to have year round allergies. And thanks to Cardiganland's early spring, everything is coated in a fine layer of spring green pollen. (I guess that's where the crayon name comes from!) Even my car, usually clean looking because it's silver, looks gross. On the bright side I am heavily armed with Claritin and a gas mask so I should be fine.
The silver lining of all this pollen is that it means there is dogwood. I missed out on my favourite tree in the town in bloom--a windy day wiped it out, but this is what it looked like last year--and now that the dogwoods are blooming, I'm not going to miss out! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled. Also, wisteria. Am I right? Well, if you live in the great white north I'm wrong, but Cardiganland loves its things that bloom, even with the pollen it brings.
One more silver lining: my skirt is always in bloom and never discards pollen! Yay.
