Nine Years

Hey all,
Happy weekend! How was your week? 
I celebrated my anniversary on the 11th. 
Lucas and I have been together for nine years now. 
Since I was 17... and he was 15 :O 
We met in highschool art class. Of course, it had to be art class. 
We bonded because we were both misunderstood outcasts with a flair for the artistic. 
Nothing much has changed :)
I'm not the type of person to scream my love to the heavens, but I will paint it on my nails.
This one's for Lucas.

On my ring finger I used striping tape and a dotting tool to create Lucas' initials.
When I first met him he drew what I thought was some alien symbol, on everything.
Turns out it was just his initials angled and stacked on top of each other.

On my middle finger I created the roman numeral for 9. It's on the middle finger for a reason.
Over the years there have been people, masquerading as friends, who wanted to split us up.
That finger is for them.

Lucas chose the polish for this manicure.
Topshop - Jewel in the Crown & Zoya - Dahlia
He was a bit disappointed that the teal didn't pop more, but I think it's a striking combination.

I'm not a fan of love songs. Most of them are cheese-ball and gag-tastic.
So for Lucas I chose a rockin Liz Phair song which is closest to my kind of sentiment.

Have a great weekend and an awesome manicure!


  1. Happy anniversary then! So cute that he chose the colors for your manicure and you made his initials as the design :)

  2. These are perfect. I love how you made it so personal & you know I'm a hopeless romantic so little details like that instantly make me giddy. I'm so happy for you guys. I'm glad I've been apart of your lives :) Congrats!

  3. Happy Happy, Joy Joy for u and Lucas! Love u both : )

  4. I'm not a sentimental or romantic person, but I can appreciate what this manicure represents. What a simple, yet beautiful and poignant way to express your feelings and celebrate your relationship! Belated congrats to you both, and I hope you keep adding years to that middle finger. ;)
