These 10 digits

It was a really neat coincidence that Krissy from Shimmer Like Gold recently dedicated one of her inspiration posts to hands just when I decided to have an impromptu shoot with my own digits today. To be honest, I don't think my outfit was that exemplary, but I wanted to do something fun with that softly lit gauzy curtain and my hands. I think that hands are one of the easiest things to model with because unless you've been unfortunately/fortunately born with hook hands, they're easily accessible and unique. Nail polish and accessories don't hurt either-- this minty color is something I've been hunting for awhile. So during this past weekend when I discovered that my friend had a bottle full of it, I immediately stole it from her. No worries, I eventually gave it back. I'm not quite so terrible to smeagol nail polish from a friend (did I just say smeagol? oh my, I need to go to bed).

That bracelet is fabulous! Haha, camping is cool, but I know what you mean about camping during a storm! I remember one time it was so windy that the next day, we all shifted from one side of the tent to the other!

This set of photographs is just gorgeous -- I like that you decided to depart from the norm a bit. Actually, I think you should do more like these. I can just see people adding your photos to We Heart It.

Would it be possible for me to steal your friend's nail polish too? I just want to borrow it for one quick little manicure...I LOVE IT!

I love this photo shoot you had with your hands! That mint green nail polish is absolutely gorgeous. It's one of the rare shades of nail polish I'd actually wear! haha

I haven't been camping in so long. Glad you made it through the night without getting blown away :P

Beautiful!! I don't like my hands - I think they're a bit manly. and big. and long. I blame years of piano.

I want your nailpolish! I've been looking for mint green for such a long time but only found it in a really shitty quality polish. Camping and smores are always fun!
ps. I hope to reply to your email soon but i have no time! :(

I like your bracelet and how it has hanging beads off it that probably could be used as a weapon. Those photos are rad, too. I LOVE YOUU
