I didn't realize how long it's been since my last post! Oh well, better late than never :)
So last night at around 11 I was falling asleep watching TV, and got the strong urge to paint my nails. I have a small collection of 1-3 year old nail polishes in colors like deep rose, red orange, red, maroon, purple and blue - pastels never appealed to me, seasonal correctness or not. Anyways, of all my color options I somehow, in my sleepy delusion, pick a bright, metallic purple. Never mind that I had already planned to wear blue today, which doesn't really go with the nail polish.
This morning on the train, I bypassed my 200 puzzles of Sudoku book to work on a new quick stitching project, that I started this Sunday with the intent to work on it during my commute. It's the "Tartan Thistles Coaster Kit", as seen on this website, that I bought 2 years ago when I was in Scotland. Per the instructions, I've started stitching the light and medium purple borders, and I realized this morning: My nails match the medium purple exactly.
Coincidence? I think it was my subconscious. My psych-phd-student cousin would love it.
