This morning, a woman walking ahead of me carried an umbrella that read in brush calligraphy:
The tears I shed yesterday have become rain.
I guess that’s supposed to be inspiring—and yes, upon Googling it, I realize it’s a quote from a Buddhist monk—but my first thought was, You must have been utterly despondent, because it’s raining cats and dogs today!
I’ve been pretty on the money with matching up my nail polish of the day with Toronto weather. Yesterday, it was crisp and cool, and I posted a crisp, cool red. And today, I have Moka Chic (662), a dreary brown cream for a dreary day.
Please don’t let that description put you off, however—this one actually lives up to the Chic in its name.
It’s a mouse brown cream that is well-balanced: it’s neither too yellow-toned nor too red-toned. It has the right amount of grey to keep the color interesting, and not enough to give me dead hands.
