Back to reality!

Doesn't it seem like it takes forever for your vacation to get here, and then when it does, it's over before you know it? I hate that! Then, you get home and need a vacation from your vacation to unpack, clean up after naughty cats that have been left alone for too long, and generally hate life because you have to go to work tomorrow.  That's where I'm at right now.

As I write this, I'm still at my parents, but have to pack up and drive home tomorrow.  You won't be reading this until I've already been home and back to work.  I'm not one to blog the same day it posts.  I am always a few days ahead so if I don't feel like polishing, you guys still have posts to see!  I don't know how people post every day, or more than once a day. That's not for me!

Today's polishes are Nails Inc Paddington and Foubert's Place.  The silly bottle shot is taken with pottery I made as a child.   I remember being pretty proud of myself at the time!


I could never make a tall pot, it always tipped over.  So this was a masterpiece for me back in the day! Paddington is on the left and is a dark greyed out khaki.  Foubert's Place on the right is a lighter greyed out khaki.  I thought I was being hip picking these two to go together.  But it didn't translate to my nails like it does in the bottle. They came out kind of similar and hard to tell apart.  I did the accent nail in Foubert's.  Here are inside and outside shots.

The lighting inside my parents is not the greatest, so it's even harder to see the difference.  Then I stamped with plate BM 214 and added my funky french.  I just know Oreo will call this look subtle.  And you know what? It is! Sometimes, the color combinations you pick rock and sometimes they suck.  You decide.

Dig that shine though! Gray polish is not in my favorite categories, but these are pretty cool with a hint of khaki green.  I just need to pair them with better colors next time!

Thoughts on this mani? Do you agree with me about post vacation hangover? What are your remedies for the post vacation blues?
