Father’s Day

I’ve spent some time thinking about what to write for today’s post, and no words ever seem enough to describe a person you love and admire. Today my nails are for my dad, they may seem simple but they’re enough to be just right.

The main colour is a pastel yellow, this is the same shade as my favourite jumper that my dad wears. He has had it since I was born and one of my favourite pictures ever is him holding me as a baby wearing this jumper. This shade of yellow makes me happy because it makes me feel safe, makes me think of him.

I chose two things to draw on my nails, the moustache is obvious. My dad is a traditional gentleman and he has a fine moustache. Not quite as black as the one I have drawn anymore, but when I picture my dad thats what I see! The bird is the same as his only tattoo, I love it and whenever I see that bird anywhere it reminds me of him. So you can see that the nails may appear simple but they are him.

My dad is my hero, I admire and look up to him so much. There are no words to describe how much he loves his family and I will forever be thankful to how sweetly and lovingly he took care of me. To him I own my level headedness and the ability to use my imagination, to see the world in a positive way, always. Happy Father’s Day.
