Chanel Khaki Vert, Polish My Life Milk Chocolate Goodies, EP Flashing Lights

Today I just had to do a mani for me.  One where the colors are my favorite and I do it just for me to enjoy. Knowing others most likely will not.

Yeah it was one of those days.

Remember how I told you I've been swooning over YouTube lately?  Well, stupid me forgot that all those videos eat up my GB from my data plan.  I'm watching a bunch yesterday and I get a damn text message saying I've used 75% of my allowed GB so far.  I've even gone into the ton of rollover data I've collected.

Usually, I've been using about seven of the ten GB I have each month.  Right now, I'm already almost at eleven and there are five days left in the billing cycle.  Whoops! I'll need to be more conscious of that in the future.

So the news you've ALL been waiting for.  I've gotten several comments about Stupid and how my work place has been sucking lately.  Well I told you that the woman who does all her work was retiring.  That actually happened.  I wasn't for sure until it did.  Then one day last week she was unable to whine and cry herself out of getting off her a** and doing a clinic. She just complained about how hard it was and how it was just too much work.

Gee, she did one clinic with eleven patients.  I do three clinics with up to fifteen each.  What a baby.

Then it happened.

Stupid turned in her resignation!

Over that one day having to do a clinic.  She quit.  You better believe I stood up and did a happy dance when I found out.  There's no way she could have found another job already.  So that's really stupid of Stupid to do. Right before the holiday weekend, she was packing up her desk in several boxes and I had a smile on my face.

I'm not quite sure when her last day is, it's either this week or next.  All I do know is, my office is going to be so much better without her there.  I am so sick and tired of her and her whining and her nails on a chalkboard grating voice.  There is no better present for me at this moment in time then her leaving and never coming back.

Let's get to it.  Here is the silly bottle shot.



This is Polish My Life Milk Chocolate Goodies (so wish the holo would transfer on this one), Enchanted Polish Flashing Lights and Chanel Khaki Vert.

I started with skittles.  My stupid camera is acting up lately.  I've no idea WTF so these aren't the greatest pictures.

I so wish the holo in the bottle would show on the nail as I said earlier.  Anywho, I then simply did a glitter gradient with the EP.

These pics came out so much better.  It's just the flash mode that's acting up.  How pretty is this? I love the bit of sparkle, but it's not overpowering the colors underneath.

Yeah this is a perfect me mani.  It was not popular on Instagram, but I knew that going in.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Bettina Heavenly, EP Dark Fantasy, Chaos and Crocodiles City in the Clouds

I got a comment the other day from a reader asking about my swatching for SinfulColors.  I have always told you guys that I am a drugstore snob.  This person was asking if I still was.  My answer is yes I still am totally a drugstore snob.  There is a difference between what I actually go out and buy for myself and being sent free colors to show off for those out there who do buy drugstore brands.

I'm even showing you guys glitter! I mean I'm taking one for the team every time I put a glitter on for you.  Do I like the SinfulColors formula and colors that I've reviewed so far? Hell yeah.  I've never bought one before, except for the one called Cinderella that was all the rage a few years ago.  I sent that to the UK before they banned mailing nail polish.  For $2 a bottle, this SinfulColors formula, brush and variety is awesome for those out there who don't want to spend the $20 a bottle on the indie polish I prefer.  Will I go out and start hoarding this brand? Nope.  I will still only buy indies for myself.  But you bet I'm going to swatch for companies that ask me to.

Maybe someday, the indies will figure out where I am in the world and ask me to be their swatcher! Wouldn't that just be the be all end all?

I did something the other day that I haven't done since I was 19-20.  I rode on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle.  Damn was it fun! I haven't had that much fun in a long time.  I had my miniskirt on, tucked up under my a** so I wouldn't be showing off my stuff to the highway.  I had on one of those sort of half helmets that the Hell's Angels wear.  AC/DC was on the radio and yeah I was tapping my fingers, singing along and just enjoying the hell out of it.  The guy had two full tattoo sleeves and looks like a bad a** but is in fact a very nice guy.

We were on some country road where the corn was growing and the sun was shining and yeah I had a damn good time.  I had a smile on my face the whole next day at work.  I sure hope I get the chance to do that again. Back when I was 19, I had on a long maxi skirt and would just pull it up to ride on a motorcycle.  My friend would pick me up to take me to work.

I just love being on the back of a motorcycle.

Now, I couldn't find the holo color I wanted for my base.  So I used my Bettina and added holo top coat.  I love doing that!

Here is the silly bottle shot.


This is Enchanted Polish Dark Fantasy, Chaos and Crocodiles My Favorite Color is Unicorn, City in the Clouds and Bettina Heavenly.

I started with Heavenly topped with Unicorn.

Yes I thought about using EP Halo, Lilac etc, but I wanted that lean of grey.  Next I did a tape mani then added flowers.

My flowers still need help, but I'm getting better at them I think.  I realized after I did this, that this is similar to the purple mani I did a few posts ago.  Oh well, it's still cool!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

SinfulColors Out of this World, Mint Apple, Copper Pot

Remember I told you there would be more SinfulColors polish to show you? Today's mani is a gorgeous one if I do say so myself!

I told you how I had stayed away from Facebook for a long time and now I'm in a bunch of groups and even have my own group.  Another I've stayed away from until now is YouTube.  I never understood why it was so popular.  There is even a TV show that shows nothing but freakin YouTube videos.

WTF?

I hang my head in shame as I tell you this, but I have been watching a sh*t ton of videos lately.  I even subscribed to a few channels.  I added the app back to my iphone.  What the hell is wrong with me???  Oh and most are not even nail polish channels.  I know how to do most of the art out there, I just don't have the talent or the patience.

What I've been watching are makeup videos. I have always been one who just slaps makeup on, not really giving a sh*t and not really taking the time to even try to make it look good.  I've never been one who wants to wear a ton of makeup, but I know I could do better.  Two in particular I've been watching is NikkieTutorials and Stephanie Lange.  If nothing else, please go watch Nikkie's Power of Makeup video.  It's amazing and powerful to all women out there.

So yeah, I've been watching their channels like I have nothing better to do.  I can't see myself watching anything else on YouTube, however there was a funny one about that doctor who hates me I told you about last post. You know the Snickers commercials where the person isn't themselves until they eat the Snickers? Yeah the medical residents did a mocking one using that doctor as the angry guy that he is.  I wish I could link it for you, but I better not.

If any of you out there really loves a particular makeup channel, let me know!

All right, on to the cool mani for today.  Here is the silly bottle shot.


This is SinfulColors Out of this World, Mint Apple and Copper Pot.

Remember when I bought OPI Kyoto Pearl as I wanted a frosty white? And remember how that was an awful brushstrokey mess? Wait til you see this one.  I wish the sun had been out for this.

How beautiful is this???? This is part of the July 4th set coming out in July. You need this people! I just went out in the sun and yes there are glittery sparkles in here too!  No brushstrokes either. And no I wasn't careful about it.  Yeah I'm in love.

Next I wanted to do just a color block as I thought these three colors go great together.

Look closely and you will see the pretty shimmer in this Mint Apple.  Copper Pot is a gorgeous metallic shimmer. I think these three go great together.  Apple and Copper Pot are already out for sale from the summer collection called Street Fusion.

I love these together.  I have to say, that I have never tried SinfulColors before as you guys know I don't do drugstore brands.  BUT, after trying these that I've shown you so far, I've really been impressed with these. They go on nice, last without chipping the three days I wear polish and for the price, how can you go wrong??

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
