I loved reading this section again as an adult. It didn’t register to me as a child but now it resonates with me in a beautiful way. I hope you enjoy it as well. 💗
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
“Once you are real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”
It Lasts for Always is described as a blue to beige thermal with gold and copper shimmer. This is a truly gorgeous thermal, the blue to beige has always been a favorite of mine for thermals and the shimmer just adds an extra layer of fabulous!
The formula on It Lasts for Always was flawless. The viscosity was just right and the polish went on the nail smoothly and effortlessly. The blue was mostly opaque in 2 coats but I did 3 coats just to deepen the colors, and getting some more of that incredible shimmer didn’t hurt either! Sealed with glossy top coat.
