Enchanted Polish Dime Piece and Presto Magic

I have a confession to make to you all.

I, Fingers, have an addiction.  I'm addicted to polish.  Nail polish that is.

All the pretty colors, I just can't help myself.

Want to know why I'm telling you this?  Yesterday, I got off work at 2pm, went to Target (tar-jay) and totally forgot all about the Limited Edition Duo from Polish My Life at 3pm.  I literally remembered at 2:58 pm.  Where was I? In my car getting on the highway. A seriously crazy, busy no holds barred highway.  One I almost get taken out on on a weekly basis.

I thought, I can shop while driving.  Then I thought, nope, not with the iphone 6 plus.  It's way too damn big for one handed things.  Man I used to be able to blindly type one handed etc with my 5S. But no more.  As much as I love my 6plus, I miss doing that.

What did I do?  Pulled off the highway on the side of the road, put on my flashers and hit refresh until I was successful in getting my LE Duo set!  WOOHOO! You see, I hadn't even known about it when it sold out the first time 2 days ago.  I'm so enamored with this brand and her creams, I had to have it.

I just think it's hilarious what we polish addicts do to get what we want!  Don't even tell me you've never done something so silly as what I did!

Oh and my nails are getting way too long.  I've already cracked the corner on one nail, that I told you about.  Well yesterday, I was making my bed and hit my nail on the wrought iron, cracked another nail.  Just now? I realized just typing here, that I cracked the cracked nail in another place. I'll be getting out my glue and gel polish in a moment to fix it.  I may be filing them down today as well. Haven't decided yet.

Since I've got to save my nail, let's get to it.  Here's your silly bottle shot.

This is Mundo de Unas Blue Navy, Enchanted Polish Dime Piece and Presto Magic.

I started with skittles.

So blingy, it freaked my camera out!  I tried to stamp with my MoYou plate, but it wasn't etched right, so I removed it and used my Nailz Craze NC03 plate and Blue Navy.

The design isn't as crisp as I normally do, but I had removed the previous stamping and some was left over.  It still looks cool though!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Polish My Life Nude Lace, Plum Mums and Mundo de Unas Violet

Today's mani was inspired by another account on Instagram.  I took her premise and made it my own. I have to say, it's a gorgeous thing!

I am still hard at work on the redesigning of my blog.  It's taking me awhile to get it just right.  I think we're almost there.  I want it to be perfect.  Once I get the header and background design where I want it, the rest will be easy.  I'm sure I'm driving the designer crazy with my changes, but I know what I want when I see it.  Stay tuned for the reveal at some point in the future!

The day this post actually posts, will be the day before I have five whole days off in a row.  I cannot wait.  I already have a list of chores to do, gutters, leaf raking, closet cleaning, that sort of thing.  I also plan to do a ton a magazine reading as I'm way behind as well as take a ton of naps.

You have no idea how much I need this break!

It's also the day I have to buy a set of new tires for my car.  I am almost out of tread and since I drive like a maniac, I need that tread to keep my car on the road.  Bummer is the expense of them.  It makes more sense to buy tires with more mileage to them so as to not have to buy them ago so soon in the future.  I'm getting 65,000 mile tires for $600 a set of four.  Not too bad, but damn I hate to have to shell out that kind of money.

Think of all the polish I could buy with that! At least the guy at my car shop is cute.  I can stare at him and the money will all be worth it.  HAHAHA!  It's my silver lining people. You have to find the positive in these things!

All right, last post I promised to show you just how amazing and crisp this Mundo de Unas polish stamps.  So let's get to it.

Here's the silly bottle shot.

I forgot to add the stamping polish here.  This is Polish My Life Nude Lace and Plum Mums.

I started with a different accent nail.  You'll see why later.


Man I love this brand of polish!

Now I got my idea for this design from Mllrdesign on Instagram.  I saw what she did and knew I could rock it out as well. I stamped with Mundo Violet using my all time favorite stamp design on Bundle Monster plate BM306. I then taped off two nails and finished it off.

Here are the amazing results.


Sadly, my camera is showing these purples as blue.  Know IRL, it is a gorgeous purple. Now I want to you to look closely at my stamping.  Notice the crisp clean stamp? That's this Mundo polish.  It's amazing stuff.  Every detail is picked up, every part equal color.  I love it!

I also love this design!  Isn't it cool?  I just wish I could come up with such cool ideas on my own!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Pipedream Polish On The List, Mundo de Unas High Green

Oh people! It just keeps getting better and better.  It's the latest on the Stupid saga!

Stupid was not at work last Friday.  Not like I give a sh*t, but I at least noticed.  I didn't even care enough to ask why she wasn't there.  In comes Stupid on Monday and she's now wearing a foot boot. It seems she now has pain in her foot and needs to wear the boot.  Right............

Want to know what I think?  I think she was told that she has to get off her ass to do clinics, and she's come up with a new and inventive way not to have to.  Yeah, I believe this to my very core.  So does one of my coworkers.  Let's see how long this goes on for.

Her other update?  She's been reprimanded for unapproved overtime.  WTF????? Overtime???? What the hell does she do all day that she needs overtime? Hmmmmmmm.  And she's the only one who got said email about this.  Maybe she's just special.  NOT.  What she did say while ranting was and I quote, "I'm not staying here."

Well, my dear, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

In other news, I told you how I was dreading Monday.  I ended up being pulled out of my regular clinic, but I refused to not do my MD conference.  So there.  Actually, it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  It was a cold, rainy day and literally over half the patients cancelled their appointments. I'm going to assume I'm covering tomorrow's clinic as well. It's just easier that way.  I busted my ass yesterday getting my work caught up knowing this will most likely happen.

I've also had several patients die lately. A couple I really liked. Yes I cried.  No I'm not ashamed of that.  As I told my dad when they were here a couple weeks ago, that when I don't cry is the time I need to find a new job.

Now, for my regular peeps, today's base color is going to freak you out.  Don't worry, I haven't hit my head or anything.  I'm still under the same rock as always with my dark and vampy.

Here's the silly bottle shot.

This is Pipedream Polish On The List and Mundo de Unas High Green stamping polish.

I started with an entire mani of this hot neon pink.

Gorgeous isn't it??????  I knew when I saw these two colors together, they would be awesome! I used plate SDP-L and the High Green.

I have to say, this stamping polish is so amazing that it even picks up the tiniest details that others don't pick up.  It'll be more obvious on the next post.

If you're a stamper, you NEED this stamping polish in your life.  I can't wait for my next order to arrive.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
