|Knitting and nail polish - my|
Aren't they pretty? What we have here is Nubar Pink Lily and Adore, by Kim Hargreaves, a wide scarf knit in Kidsilk Haze.
Pink Lily is the sixth polish I've tried from this collection. Maybe this one applied differently, or maybe I've just resigned myself to the fact that these take 3 coats to be opaque. But I really love this. I had a hard time capturing the true color; it's quite a bit darker and more Pepto-esque in real life. In the bottle it looks like it would have a more pronounced shimmer (like Blue Hydrangea), but I can't see it on the nail.
It makes me feel pretty. Isn't it funny how pink can do that?

The Adore scarf is a project I started to take with me to California last month. I didn't work on it a whole lot because I was busy taking long walks on the beach . . . I get it out every once in a while and do a few rows. It's the kind of thing I like to keep going, for when I get bored with whatever else I'm working on.

It's done in a very easy but very effective stitch. The yarn is a shade of Kidsilk Haze called Majestic. It's a hard color to describe. Is it grey? Is it lavender? Is it taupe? Whatever it is, it's very pretty. And it goes great with pink nails. I think I'll do a few rows now . . .
