Another Simple Tape Mani

I am continuing on with my clean and simple.  I'm trying really hard to do nice, clean manis.  As I master those, I will progress to harder stuff.

My parents will be here this weekend, they are planning on staining the back wall of my house. I also have my photo shoot that I told you about.  So don't be alarmed if I miss a couple of posts.  I'm not sure I will get the time to write them up with all this action.

Of course I had to get a huge zit right on my chin days before the pictures are to be taken.  I'm trying really hard to get it to heal up by then.  Karma eh?

I don't have any good stories for you as of now, so I'm just going to get on with it.

Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is OPI My Vampire is Buff, Painted Polish by Lexi Peas in a Pod, Lime Crime Crema de Limon and Bettina Yellow.

Oh and I have the new set of 10 Bettina spring colors in the mail on its way to me.  Oh how excited I am!!  I will be almost up to 100 Bettina with this.  There is no way I would ever sell these!

I started with Vampire and an accent of Pea.  This is a light holo, but unlike the last post, you can see the sparkle better.

Simple Tape Mani

So I in fact made it to work yesterday at 0730 for the stupid staff meeting that had nothing to do with my job.  Actually, only one of about 20 people in that meeting directly did the tasks discussed.  How does this help me do my job?  I was so focused on getting there on time that I got up at 0430 so when I did get there, I was not awake and left my damn iphone in my car.

My life is in that iphone.  If I were to lose it, it would be very bad for sure.  So the whole meeting all I'm thinking about is, "did I leave my phone in the car?" and "please let it be there."  As soon as it was over, I went to the parking deck to my car.  I was wearing my high heeled combat boots and again was not awake yet so I wasn't really concentrating on walking and all of a sudden, my right ankle gave out from under me in front of a pile of people at the elevator.  First let me just say OUCH, it really hurt, but even worse, I was all sorts of embarrassed, like I had on new shoes or new feet.

So stupid.  I got to my car and yes my phone was there.  Phew.  I did make it back in without killing myself or breaking my ankle and finished my day.

Here's the other weird tangent. You know I feed the birds and the squirrels in my back yard.  The feeder hangs from a wrought iron stand thing and I've had it up for about 5 years give or take.  Well lately, I've been waking up in the morning to the iron being bent at an almost 90 degree angle to the ground.  It ain't squirrels so I'm wondering if I have a raccoon messing with it.  Although I have no idea why since the food isn't missing or anything.  At some point with all this bending back and forth, it's going to break and I will have to buy a new one.  Yes I do bend it back, but it's just weird you know?  Makes me wonder if there's a person doing it to mess with me, but that's probably irrational.

I could go out and buy expensive night vision cameras and videotape the scene-but I'm not there yet. For now I think I will just have to take the feeder in at night and see what happens.  At least until I can be sure the raccoon or other critter is over it.

What else could it be?????

Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is Painted Polish by Lexi Honeysuckle and Sea Lavender with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls in the middle.  These are touted as 'light' holos.  You can see the rainbow in the bottles, but not so much on the nails.

I started with Boyfriend and an accent of Lavender.

My poor little nubs!  Anywho, I next simply did a tape mani.  I wanted to do clean and simple.  This turned out really awesome though.

If you look real hard, you can see some sparkle in this Lavender.  I am loving this mani, even if it's purple and pink!!!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Wicked-Malice

So I have a very simple yet oh so awesome mani for you today.  I am still in the clutches of this bad cold.  I have to say it's getting old all this coughing and nose blowing.  It's a week today.  Damn I'm over it.

So that's another reason why this mani is so simple.  No energy nor the care to do anything more daring.

Talked to two of my friends from my past life in St Louis yesterday.  Walking down memory lane and catching up on the happenings since we last talked.  It's always nice to talk to people who have known you as long as they have.

My one friend is a Nine Inch Nails freak, so we had a long discussion about them and the new album they put out late last year.  I sampled it and decided I needed to get me a copy.  Trent has got the most awesome voice doesn't he NIN lovers out there?

Now since I really need to go lie down and nap, here is your silly bottle shot.


This is Chanel Malice, Essie Wicked and YUP THE Clarins 230.  That elusive polish I managed to get my hands on last year.

I decided I needed to do a mani with my all time fave reds.

Yes this winter has been mean and cruel to my hands.  Ignore that and concentrate on the gorgeous reds we have here!  Oh how I love Malice.  I've already worn it so many times I may need a backup!

I simply added a layer of Clarins 230 to the Wicked nails on the outside, left Malice alone.

Can you see the glow of the 230?  This has shimmers of green that I couldn't capture, you have to be at a weird angle and lower light, but believe me, I could not stop staring at my nails and wore this for longer than I normally do.

Simple can be awesome.

I'm off to take a nap now.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
