Classic red manicure

Hi everyone,


a plain classic red manicure today with a bit of a background story.

indoors, no flash
Tomorrow is my fathers birthday. He passed away in 2010 so I can't go for a visit with cake and presents, but I can honor his memory by wearing his favorite kind of manicure: classic red without any form of nail art.

He never commented on my manicures although I did see the occasional raised eyebrow. One day, completely out of the blue, he said he didn't mind the crazy colors and patterns I usually put on my nails but to him the most perfect manicure was a plain red one, not bright screaming in-your-face red but sophisticated and feminine. Ever since he told me that, I've been wearing a red manicure on his birthday and, later, also on the anniversary of his passing.

I'm pretty sure he would have loved this color: OPI Romantically Involved.
