Dear John

A post or two ago talked about the Square Hue polish subscription service.  Today I have the February colors to show you.  I also mentioned that it's been a while since I did my stamping since I've been experimenting.  Well wait til you see what I've done for you today.  You guys are gonna die.  I mean it.

So far, people are liking that I've stepped outside my box and tried new things.  I did more reading about how to deal with glequins and I think this mani is a sure winner.

This past week at work has kicked my ass.  By the time Friday came around, I was so tired and so frustrated that I actually tweeted some to get it off my chest.  One of those tweets stated "why is it when you're in a hurry at the post office, the person in front of you needs 30 money orders.  Get an f-ing checkbook!"

This happened to me on Friday.  This chick had a stack of twenties and was buying multiple money orders.  I was so pissed-what is it with people like this?  Why don't they have a bank account like normal people?  The fees alone on all those money orders would be enough to make me rethink my money situation.  Can anyone out there explain this to me?  I just don't get it.  I refuse to go to the post office at the beginning of the month. That's when people get their social security checks and flock to the post office for money orders.  It just baffles the mind.

OK enough bitching.  On to greatness!  Here is the silly bottle shot for today.


This is A England Jane Eyre, Rescue Beauty Lounge Bruised, Square Hue Dear John and Wartime Romance with one of my glequins in front.

I started with Wartime and an accent of Dear John.  Here are the starting shots.

Unfortunately, this Dear John is very dark and hard to see the red shimmer in it. Wartime is gorgeous though, a nice mauvey creme.

Next I stamped with DRK-B using the Jane Eyre and Bruised.  Here is that step.

With me so far?  Next I used my dotting tool and one nail at a time, I dotted with Bruised and added a glequin on each square.  Here is that step.

Isn't this cool?  I felt though that it still needed a little something.  So I added a layer of holo top coat and then my funky.  The sun was nice enough to come out for this part. Here are the awesome results.

Isn't this awesome?  I am really proud of myself for this one.  I wore this for three days and only lost one glequin.  So I must have done something right!  It really didn't take as long as I thought it would either.  I used a toothpick and wet the end and it picked up the glequins no problem.  It was amazing.

So I leave you with this.  Did this mani shock you and make you keel over?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
