Earth Tones

I'm sitting here, eating Lucky Charms cereal out of the box trying to come up with something to talk about.

At work this week, we all got brand new computers that actually run Windows 7. Plus I got a huge 21inch screen.  I'm feeling all sorts of important.  In reality, all the computers where I work are being replaced.  It's about freakin time that they are mainstream.  It's nice and fast too.  The problem is, we have been using Word 2003, now we have Word 2010.  Exponentially harder in my opinion.  I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to that now.  Most of my job uses Word so I will need some time to adjust and figure out what I'm doing.  It's definitely slowing me down at this point in time.

My other issue today is with Zoya.  I'm pissed as hell.  I have been waiting forever to buy their new Cashmere collection and waiting for a sale.  Well none ever came so I caved and ordered it.  The day they arrived at my house?  Zoya decides to have a BOGO.  I could have gotten this set at half price.  You had best believe that made me very mad.  I tweeted Zoya, I emailed them and I called them.  I was told sorry there is nothing we can do.  Most companies will let you have the sale price especially when it's within a week like this was.  Nope.  I'm screwed.  Trust that I will NEVER buy Zoya again and never again unless there's a sale.  That's just bad customer service.

After this let down, I had to hit the grocery store on my way home from work.  I'd been putting it off for far too long.  Guess what happens?  It starts pouring rain and I mean pouring hard.  I had no umbrella and was forced to shop and sling groceries in the rain.  I got soaked, my groceries got soaked and to top it all off??  I broke a nail.  Yup.  Topped off my very bad day.

I've decided that my nails just may not be able to handle the square shape.  Every time I finally get some length past my finger, I break a corner off and have to nubbinize.  I think I'm going to have to rethink my nail shape. I'm tired of this happening every time.  Today's post will be the one before the broken nail.

Next time, I will be showing off a new shape.

Here is your silly bottle shot for today.


Oh how I love these kinds of colors.  This is Bettina Earth and Trend, Nails Inc Fenchurch St and Joe Fresh Caramel, Moss, Teal and Khaki.

I started with a Skittlette with the Joe Fresh.  Here are those shots.

How awesome are these colors together???  I live for colors like this.  Next I placed a lot of striping tape. Here is that step.

You can see I almost forgot to take this picture!  I filled all these spots in with the rest of the colors.  Here is that step.

I then removed the tape and did some cleanup.  Here is that step.

I'm not sure if the blue nail goes with the rest as it is so different.  Anywho, I then did more cleanup and added studs to the base of each nail.  Here are the very cool results.

I happen to love this.  I love the colors, I love the design.  Now that I have the new Zoya Fall colors, I'll be playing with more colors just like these.

What do you think?  If you follow me on Instagram, you would see this a week sooner!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
