Another Parallax Polish Sneak Peak

Today I have another from the upcoming disease awareness set from Parallax Polish.  I didn't have time to do any nail art so it is strictly a fabulous swatchfest.

Remember how I told you I was back on the online dating site? I actually saw a commercial for it for the first time. The one I use is a free site that you can upgrade by paying to get other features.  So the commercial went like this.

"Why pay to meet someone, when you can do it for free?"  Yeah, not so sure that's the way I'd go with the commercial, but yeah I couldn't believe an app has a commercial.  What is the world coming too?

After three years of being on that site, I may have finally met someone worth my time.  I've already told him that if he messes with me that he'd become fodder for this blog and he has graciously (or not) accepted that challenge.  I actually had my first real date ever.  The kind where you are picked up and you actually do stuff?

Yeah. It was nice.

First, we went to a coffee house in a hip part of town that reminded me of my Goth party days when I was much younger.  Where the normal people mix with what I lovingly call the Freaks.  People with all different color hair, piercings etc. I saw so many cool hair colors, I was all sorts of jealous.  We then walked around that part of town then went to this cemetery that has Civil War Confederates buried there.

That was a cool experience.  To see gravestones from the 17 and 1800s.  Next, we went to the Fine Arts museum.  I have never been there, I am not one who understands art and paintings.  The museum was showing floral paintings by Van Gogh, Degas, Cezanne, and others that I couldn't even tell you about.  Some were very nice, others were just weird.  Like I said, I am not an art person so I have no clue or concept of these things.  When I went to college the first time, I had to take an art appreciation class.  I got through it by cheating.  Wrote notes on how to tell them apart.

Yeah, I was not a good student then! HAHAH!

It really was a nice day and I enjoyed myself big time.  Cross your fingers people! And since I know he is reading this-thank you for such a nice time.

All right onto the purpose of this post.  Here is the silly bottle shot.

This was created by a girl named Destiny.

I simply did a full mani with this.


I'm not sure how to describe this one.  I don't think it's a holo, but may have a tiny bit of holo sparkle added. It's a gorgeous blue with tons of shimmer.  This will be on sale June 1st with the other two that I showed you last post.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Parallax Polish Sneak Peak

I made the drive to my parent's house yesterday.  The closer I got, the more sad I got as I saw different things and places that reminded me of my dad.  Tomorrow is his official burial. I saw the ice cream place where he used to drive us after dinner to go get soft serve cones with sprinkles.  He always got vanilla and told the kid behind the counter to do as many rings of ice cream as he could and "don't be a company man about it."  My dad loved his vanilla.

Then I get inside the house and there's his stuff, and his pictures and paper on the fridge with his handwriting on it.  Yeah it's not been easy.  Later today mom and I have to go get the flowers to put on his casket when he is buried.  I didn't know I had to do that.  That is really going to be difficult.  I knew that this was going to have me grieving all over again and it is.

Just wanted to let you guys know what's going on as my posting will be spotty.  I had a few manis ready to go, just needed to type them up, but haven't done any fresh manis after that.  So there will be days with no posts at all.

I slept in until 0800 this morning! That's crazy talk for me.  Normally, I'm up at 0445 without fail as my cats refuse to let me sleep as that's breakfast time for them.  Sam has been throwing up a ton lately.  He is acting normal otherwise, so I am hoping it's just crazy hair ball stuff.  Besides licking himself, he licks Checkers as well when they are cuddling in their chair.  I've already told myself that if it is something more serious, that I won't put any more money into him.

Yes that's a harsh thing to say, but he is 12 and he's had a damn good life with me and I just can't fathom spending a butt load of money if he has something really wrong with him like cancer.  He hasn't thrown up food or hairballs, just clear stuff.  So I can't be sure of anything but for the fact that he is acting like himself, eating drinking and purring.

We will see when I get home in a couple of days how he is.  I told my neighbor to keep an eye on him while I'm gone.

All right! Are you excited to see the holo I helped create????  Of course it's awesome!

Let's do the bottle shot first.

So there are four girls who each helped Erin create a color.  It's for different disease awareness.  I don't know what they will be named, but right now the one I helped make is called Fingers.  It's the dark one.

You all know how I love me some dark and vampy.  Keeps me company under the rock from whence I came!

I started with a mixture of both of these.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
Oh yeah people! This is dark, vampy, bricky red and purple all topped with holo happiness.  The silver holo is insanely blingy too!

Next I simply did a tape mani.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
OMG.  I am in love that's for sure! Look for these to be for sale June 1st from Parallax Polish.  There are two others that will be in the set.  I have the other one coming up for you to see.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Essie Wrap Me Up, Polish My Life Don't Snap My Dragon

Remember when I told you it was nurse's week and the article in the paper? Well my boss had come into our office totally apologizing as she had forgotten the entire week.  She was asking my coworkers to throw a cherry tomato at her for punishment.

They all said no.

Then one of them said, "Get Fingers, she'll do it!"

So yeah, I threw that sucker so hard and it hit my boss right in the dent at the base of your neck. Bulls eye.  I was just sad that it didn't burst open.  I didn't even have to think about it.  I just went with it. My coworkers were all standing there laughing and I just turned my chair around and went back to work.

Don't ask me to do something if you're not prepared for me to do it!  You have to know there was no way I was gonna pass that up.

What would you have done?

HEHEHE. My mom called me evil-but said she liked that I did it!

Let's get to the silly bottle shot.

This is Chaos and Crocodiles My Favorite Color Is Unicorn, Polish My Life Don't Snap My Dragon and Essie Wrap Me Up.

I started with all Wrap topped with Unicorn.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
OMG! How awesome is this? BUT let me just say that this Essie is a PITA to apply.  Streaky, brush pulling mess. You have to just sort of glob it on and carefully level it out.  Since I'm not a matte freak, I don't know if it's just this Essie or mattes in general. I have heard though it's the Essie.

Next I did some tape and added studs then another layer of Unicorn.  The studs fell off by the next day at work. I am not a good stud wearer-I refuse to use glue.  Too hard to get off.

Indoor Sun
I kind of like how this came out.  I did a pretty good job of centering the point of the orange.  That always rocks my world!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
