Reminds me of floor tile....

Yes I know, this post is late. Should have gone up at 0500.  I usually have scheduled posts all set up for a few days in advance.  But when you do your nails three times a week but post every other day, when you do the math, at some point, you will run out of stuff posting.  This is where I'm at right now.  Unless I do two manis in one Saturday or a holiday comes up, I run out.

Yesterday driving to work, I noticed the damage the cicadas did to the trees where I live.  After they've laid their eggs in the branches, those branches die.  It makes me wonder if they'll grow back next year or not.  Some of the trees were so desiccated that I was shocked.  I mean I lived through it and know in my mind that there really were that many bugs but really didn't compute that the aftermath would leave that much damage.  There's this one house on the way, that has this one huge gorgeous tree in the front yard. It's my favorite tree and it was just blown away with damage.   It kind of made me sad.  Yes I know it's a tree people-but I'm like that sometimes.

Oh and I'm halfway through watching this documentary on PBS called NOVA Earth from Space.  OMG is it good.  It shows you how the world is all connected.  For example, Antartica sets up the flow of water that the ocean takes, keeping the ocean moving.  When the ice forms, the salty brine drops down this underwater waterfall 500 times the size of Niagara Falls and two miles down.  This briney flow generates the current that flows around the world.  I mean it's stuff like that they are showing on this program.  It is freakin awesome.  If you get PBS, you ought to see if it's still playing and watch it.  Totally worth it.  Yes I'm a geek about these things.  So fascinated by it.

One totally different tangent. People in the USA-do you really think all the fallout from Paula Deen using the 'N' word years and years ago warrants all the bad stuff happening to her now?  I kind of think it's gone a little too far.  I mean I hate that word and never use it, but when I was married, my husband's father used that word. It's how it is in the South-especially in the sticks.  I'm not a Deen fan, really can't stand her accent but I do feel sorry for her right now.

**EDIT** I am in no way, shape or form condoning what Paula Deen has said.  My thoughts are that she is just totally ignorant and stupid and raised in Antebellum South, which if you haven't experienced it, you can't speak to it.  I don't think she's doing it with any kind of malice.  I think she's just ignorant that what she's saying is wrong.  This in no way means I'm ok with what she's been saying and doing.

Alright, since this is late-here's your silly bottle shot.


This is Chanel Malice and Enchanted Polish Stay Classy San Diego.  This shot being a little different than I have been doing lately.

I was so in a red mood that I just had to wear Malice again.  I started with Classy and an accent of Malice.  Here are the starting shots.

This Classy looks like it has some pink to it in certain light.  I didn't even bother with the Ott Lite today.  Malice is still stunning and I'm so glad I braved EvilBay for it.

Next I stamped with the opposite color using Cheeky jumbo plate 10 Happy Nails. Here is that step.

When I did this mani, I thought this looked like basket weave.  But when I was watermarking, I got the feeling this looked like floor tile in an apartment building.  Do you see that?  Yes I stamped with Chanel. Think Coco would have a heart attack?

I finished this off with my funky natch.  Here are the results.

Oh how I love holos!!! I still have a ton more that I haven't even shown you yet. Can you believe that?  I'm going to go work on one now!

What do you think about Paula Deen?

Do you geek out on documentaries too?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
