Happy Valentine's Day. Woop-De-Doo.  My hubs and I don't really bother with it, which is fine with me. Every couple of years or so he'll surprise me with flowers, but this year we didn't even bother with cards. One thing about Kev, he never needs a special occasion to let me know he loves me. The guy is a gem and treats me like the "queen" I pretend to be. That being said, I hope someday we're rich enough so I can collect some more diamonds. I love me some diamonds.

To close out this not-so-hot bunch of VD mani's, CNS asked me for a straight-up pink. And that's exactly what I did. 

China Glaze Strawberry Fields is very, very pink. Like, very.  I remember right after I started painting my nails I acquired a bright pink that I tried. It was horrible on me so I really didn't think I was going to like this. As it turns out, I honestly do like it.

Of course we all know there was no way I could just leave it alone. I had done this in the evening and did paint both hands for once, but the next day I was bored so I added a stamp.
China Glaze Strawberry Fields, Essie No Place Like Chrome, Ninja Polish DRK-B stamp
For the stamp I used Essie No Place Like Chrome with a pattern off of my Ninja Polish DRK-B stamp plate. I didn't get to wear this one anywhere because I didn't leave the house, but it still looked good. Lord knows I need my nails to look good for myself.

Tomorrow Kev and my son-in-law are going to take Griffin into the city to go to the Chicago car show, and then it's time to get back to Escanaba. I'm not happy that my visit is over. I probs won't see them again for a couple of months because they don't come as often in the winter. So I'll be sad to leave.
Now I'm off to watch Project Runway's Under the Gun with Tyler and her neighbor. Kev and Tyler's husband will be super pumped to watch it, I'm sure. 

I hope your Valentine's Day was spent with someone you care about. Luckily I got to spend mine with more than one.
