Enchanted Polish January 2017

I wore this polish on the last day before the nail polish ban was to go into effect.  I was in polish mourning as it were...........

So I returned the last two pairs of boots I had ordered to DSW.  I had worn one pair to work for a few hours so technically, they were used.  When I got home that day, I washed the crap out of the soles so they looked brand new again.

The first few I returned all the chick did was make sure the boxes had shoes in them.  This new chick however took them out of the box and inspected them like you would not believe.  In my head I'm thinking damn I'm busted.  She's gonna know I wore these.

But then she put them back in the box and proceeded to credit my PayPal refund.  You have no idea the sigh of relief I had going on.  I have now worn one of the new shoes from White Mountain and they are just so awesome and comfortable the first time you put them on.

Of course they are the same boot I've been wearing for years now.  I wore the dark charcoal gray ones. I have pictures for you, but haven't cropped them yet so I'll add them to a future post for you. Oh but don't tell my mom that I ordered a fifth pair.  I didn't know they had one in chocolate brown and you all know how I feel about chocolate brown!

So now all I need is the black pair and I'll be boot complete for a few years to come.

The chick at work who quit but then stayed and got paid to do nothing? She finally decided that this past Friday was her last day.  Yeah, I'll wait and see when I get to work tomorrow. But man I hope she's finally gone.  It's been comical having a resigned person go on interviews while on the job.

So remember how I started this post? In polish mourning? Yes I wore black polish that day.  But then all of a sudden towards the end of the day? An email appeared.  It was the most glorious email to come yet in this whole polish debacle.

This email said that the polish ban has been put on hold and there is no new go live date.

Trust I was ecstatic and happy and it was a good thing big time.  I don't know what happened but when I find out, I'll let you know.  My theory is that they never told the doctors their plan and when the doctors found out they were pissed.  They carry more weight than I do.

You see they want to ban polish in all entirety of staff.  Not just the inpatient side.  So the doctor who isn't even on campus, who's office is miles away from the hospital will have to not wear polish.

Does that make any kind of sense??

If you are not in the hospital, you are certainly well enough to be around nail polish.  And what about the patients who wear polish and their family who wear polish????  The whole thing is just stupid. What's even more stupid is there are several groups who's manager has banned polish in their section. For example the social workers manager has banned polish for them.  I told them to fight as it's not hospital policy and they can't do that.

Trust me and the assistant boss are not giving up our polish love until it is hospital policy. Nothing else will stop us.

I'm just so happy that I did some nail art!!! That's for a later post.

Here is January 2017.  My mourning polish.  This is a dupe for the early For The Win as I told you about last post.

Enchanted Polish Comparison-Original vs New

If you aren't aware, Enchanted Polish decided this year to remake all her old originals from when she started back in 2012.  I of course, own most of those, except for the pink ones.  I thought it would be cool to do a quick comparison of the first two that have come out so far.  Then in the next two posts, I will show you the new ones in their holo state.

The shoe saga continues.  I showed you last post the two that I would be keeping, however things have changed since then.  You see, the boots I love and am wearing now are White Mountain brand. I thought they were only sold through DSW.  While at work yesterday, I went ahead and googled and found out that White Mountain does indeed have their own website.

I immediately found my boots, extremely similar but for a different pattern of stitching design.  I ordered four of them to replace the ones I have worn so much they are a sad beat up thing. I ordered grey, taupe, navy and a gorgeous burgundy.  I can't wait to see the burgundy ones! The bummer is once again, the black was sold out in my size.

I emailed the company and was told it would be back in stock come Fall.  I shall mark my calendar. Hopefully, these are keepers and will replace the taupe and navy that I own now.  If they are, those other two boots I showed you will go back.  I returned the other four pair yesterday.

Trust it made my day.

I don't really have work stories for you as we are all getting along and it's really nice.  Oh a little funny happened yesterday.  Remember Ms Princess? Well she's now doing clinic nursing and was going to cover the doctor she used to navigate for.  The one who is an a*s and made me cry back in the day.  Well he told the boss that he didn't want her in the same room as him and definitely didn't want her sitting next to him.

I kind of felt a bit sorry for her as that was kind of sh*tty of that doctor to do, but I guess she should have known this as she no longer does that job with him.  Dude could have at least told her to her face and not gone behind her back.

Oh and the chick who quit but is still working there is still there doing nothing.  Damn I'm doing something wrong here!  LOL

Now back in 2012, I bought Midnight which is a black holo.  This year, January 2017 is a black holo and I could have sworn she was remaking Midnight.  I even went on several Facebook groups insisting I was right.

I wasn't.

Turns out, January 2017 is a remake of her For The Win holo that only two bottles were made.

Then February 2017 came and it is a dupe for Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, which I do own.

Here are the bottles side by side.  Remember the originals were in fat round bottles.

This is Midnight, Jan 2017, Feb 2017 and Lucy.

Here are quick swatches of them.  These are without topcoat.

As you can see, my first finger is greyer and not as deep black as my middle finger.  Midnight is on my first finger. January on my middle.  So they are not dupes.  However, my ring and pinky are dupes. Ring finger is the original Lucy, pinky is February 2017.

While Lucy looks pretty here? It's quite frosty and brushstrokey when out of the sun.  But in the sun, it's a gorgeous subtle pink holo.

Stay tuned for separate posts on January and February 2017.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Enchanted Polish House of the Rising Sun

I got the six pairs of boots I ordered from the DSW sale.  The two cheapest ones I ordered as an after thought are just that.  A cheap after thought and will be going back.  I didn't even try those on.  The ones I really loved? Well they both have damage to them which I will show you but when I tried them on? They seem to run big but my real issue with them was how they had the laces strung and with the very large tassel on the end, I cannot restring them the way I like.

Also, I just didn't like the way they felt on my feet.

It's hard to see the defect on the blue shoe but it's a problem for me. The gray pair has a chunk missing from the suede.  The blue has a scruffy hard patch in the suede.

Here are the winning boots.  Which I hate to say, my mom picked out!  HAHAHA! Just kidding mom!

What I may do when I return the four pair that suck, is get the other darker brown in these boot styles. This one.

I'll decide after I've looked through the store again.  This is why I hate buying shoes online.  You don't get to feel them and try them on etc.

And it's a pain to now have to go to the store to return them as I don't want to mail them back.

I cleaned the hell out of my 30 gallon fish tank yesterday.  It was way over due.  I last did it over Thanksgiving. When I went under my house to get the bucket I use, a ton of my fiberglass insulation was hanging down.  It was a weird sight.  At first I was thinking that maybe a critter had gotten stuck somehow under the house and ripped at the fiberglass.  But I realized that wasn't it.

The only thing I can think of is the fierce wind we have had a couple of times this season that somehow was just at the right angle to pull the fiberglass down.  Without thinking, I started pushing it back into place.  No gloves, no mask.

In hindsight I now realize that was very stupid.

Oh and the other night, I caught the raccoon at my bird feeder outside.  I yelled at him to go away and he just looked at me like no way man.  So I threw on some pants and went outside and chased him away.  Not totally sure it's a raccoon, just know it's a big fat critter!

Now here is one of my favorite EPs. I love this color!
