Abundance of Amethyst, turning 94, and February Birthdays

Today is my Grandma's 94th birthday :D
Happy Birthday, Grandma!  When I was young, she taught me that she would always be 70 years (and a few weeks) older than I was.  I've never forgotten her age :)

Recently I painted her nails and her caregiver's nails China Glaze Anklets of Amethyst.  What a pretty color!

China Glaze Anklets of Amethyst

It took three coats for nearly-full coverage, but it has an incredible sparkle.  I really like it!

Oddly (and I would love to say I did this on purpose but it actually was just an odd coincidence), I am wearing Always Amethyst today, a new polish I picked up a few days ago.

Sally Hansen Always Amethyst
Not exactly amethyst, but a pretty color nonetheless!  It covered great with two coats and dried fairly fast.

Hope you enjoyed the double dose of amethyst this evening!

Your Grandmother has very beautiful hands. They don't loo like they belong to a 94 year old woman I'm sure she enjoyed the manicure. Thans for the post.

Happy birthday to your grandma!
Also, I'd say more ruby than amethyst for the 2nd one.

Thanks everyone!!! I'll pass along the sweet birthday wishes :)

Rebecca - yes, RUBY! That's exactly it. I was exhausted last night and struggling to define the color - thanks for giving me the word I was searching for :)
