Can't get enough

Found out a tasty tidbit the other day.  It seems that police officers have an unwritten rule not to write tickets to nurses.  HUH!  My reply was, damn I wish I had known this.  If I had, I wouldn't have had to resort to the crying jags I normally do to get out of tickets.  Next time, I'll just whip out my badge and see what happens.

Yes I have had many speeding tickets in my day.  I've been much better about it lately.  No I still refuse to drive the speed limit.  I just make sure my cruise is set only 8mph above the limit.  This is only a two point ticket and most of the time, they won't bother to mess with you over 8mph.  For example, on the way to work the speed limit is 70mph. I drive 78mph.  I pass many a cop and have never been stopped.  It could also be that I've been driving the same road for the past nine years and they have come to know my car. I'm sure that has something to do with it as well.

I've been known to do 80mph in a 55mph. Yeah I was really out of control and the points on my license was insane.  Plus all the fines aren't pleasant to pay either.  My worst ticket was a reckless which is 20mph over the limit.  Yeah not proud of that, but what are you gonna do?  It's fact.  I own the facts of my life.

There is very little I regret.  I've done a lot of things in my life so far, and the one regret I can think of, is letting my first serious boyfriend get away.  I often wonder how different my life may have been had I married him.  I once looked him up on the internet-at least I think it was him, and mailed him a letter.  Of course I never heard back, but letting him go was a big mistake.

Have you any regrets like this?  The road less traveled kind of thing?  Do you imagine what your life might have been like had you taken that road instead of the one you chose?  Wouldn't it be great to have a do over? Or like the movie Back to the Future, be able to go back and see what life would have been like had the other road been taken.

Wow am I totally rambling today.  I'm off for five days for the Thanksgiving holiday and have lots of chores to do.  I've already done a couple of them this morning.

Now onto today's mani.  It seems I can't get enough of orange lately.  I've already repeated a polish in today's mani.  Yup, it's that kind of love.

Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is Enchanted Polish Citric Acid Trip, Jade UAU and Seche Silly but Sensible. Yup this Seche is a repeat already.  Like the same week repeat.  That's orange love.

I started with skittles.

Let's just take a moment and swoooooooon people!!!!

Now for you newbies out there, the difference between a scattered holo and linear holo is apparent here. See the line of rainbow on my middle finger?  In the sun that line stays together like this and moves across your nail depending on the angle of the sun.  A scattered holo is like my pinky, you can see little dots of rainbows.  No line of rainbows.  Now you understand.  Personally, I'm a sucker for linear holos. These Jades are as strong as the Dance Legends.  They are not 3free, which I don't care about, but that's why these are so much stronger.

Next I stamped using MoYou Biker plate 6 and I didn't want to cover up the Jade, so I simply dotted.  Here are the results.

See how the line of the rainbows is now in the middle of my nail?  It's the angle of the sun.  Love this!  I think I should have maybe added a layer of holo top coat on top of the Biker design.  The black seems so stark next to the blingy.

Do you have any life regrets?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

I swear it's purple

Man some days I hate my camera with a passion.  Especially when it comes to photographing purples.  I'm thinking about a new camera.  One of those fancy ones, but I have NO idea about how to use one of those. I'd have to take a class and that just seems like too much work right now.  I can be a bit lazy sometimes.  I'm looking at reviews and reading about different cameras. I like Canons, but again, I am clueless about these things.

I am also wanting to vamp my blog some.  Not change the black and white-that's not happening.  I want to redo my labels so they are in categories.  I tried to google this and was just overwhelmed.  My other problem is back when I started, I never knew I'd have so many Enchanteds.  So my labels for those are all indie polish.  Well now I have 130 of those labels and it doesn't help people navigate my blog when they are labeled improperly.  Am really thinking I have to go back to the beginning and redo them all.  Is there any other way?  People out there-help me!  I've seen other blogs that have cool drop down things and ways to better navigate their blogs.  I need to do more research-but if any of you know someone who could help me, let me know!

We interrupt for a random thought.  Isn't it awesome when it's cold outside and you put on a nice, clean warm sweatshirt fresh from the dryer?  Just did that and it's so nice!

Now today's mani is purple.  My camera will be showing it as blue, but I have added a couple of pics from my iPhone, and they are more color accurate.

Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is Enchanted Polish Awesomeness, Stiletto Pumps and Glitter Gal Light As A Feather.

I started with skittles.

 This next picture was taken with my iPhone and almost color accurate.


Next I stamped using MoYou plate Artist 11, dotted and studded.  Here are the results.

What you can't see is that I actually did a big purple dot and a smaller dot of the Feather holo on top.  It seems they melded together.  Next time I need to let them dry more first.

Here is the plate I used.


How cool is this plate?  I am loving these MoYou plates.  They stamp so great.

Is it just me, or is this year going way too fast?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Pink Snowflakes

Well, Polish Amor and I broke our pact before it even started.  I'm ashamed to admit. So it restarts now. HEHEHE.  How pathetic is that sh*t?

I told you how I had to build another book case right?!  I rearranged stuff yesterday and it's looking pretty good.  I officially own 60 Enchanted Polish at this point in time.  There is a restock today.  That number will be increasing. I also had to make room for some Liquid Sky Lacquer holos I have coming.  I wanted to move all my holos to one bookcase, but they just won't all fit on one.  Yeah I love holos. I can at least see what I have which is the whole point of building another one.  Oh and I'm doing a swap with someone in Belgium and will finally be getting my first KOH polish.  Those I have been lemming forever.  I hope they have been worth the wait.

Can you believe it's almost Christmas?  It seems like this year has flown by exponentially fast.  I only have to work two days this week, then I'm off for five days. I have a long list of chores I want to get done.  Plus I need to do a mani a day so I can have posts written up for a while.

Oh and I've been listening to Lady Gaga's new CD a bunch.  It's growing on me.  My favorite song besides Applause is now Swine.  Am digging that song.  My issue is the songs will be going along all heavy beats and techno and then all of a sudden it's not.  It seems disjointed.  I will say that I do like most of the songs on this album. My first listen opinion is no longer.

For those who read my blog, you know the one color I am not a huge fan of.  Well you're gonna get a load of it today!

Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is Enchanted Polish Electric Daisy and Penny Lane with Seche Up Close and Personal in the middle.

It's a pinkfest.  I started with skittles.

Yeah I'm not a bubblegum pink fan-but a holo is the exception to all my rules.  Next I stamped with MoYou plate Christmas 2.  I added some dots and my funky.  Here are the results.

Oh how I love snowflake designs!  Here is a picture of the plate I used.


That's right-a whole plate of snowflakes. Of course I had to have this one!

Hope you have enjoyed this pinkfest!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?

The inevitable has happened

I held off as long as I possibly could, but then I faced reality.  I am a polish hoarder. Big time and I have totally run out of room on my five bookcases for any more polish.  I have them so crammed on these shelves that I can't really see what I have anymore.

You know what that means right?

Yup, I built my sixth bookcase.  Hangs head in shame...........

I haven't figured out where in the polish room it will be going yet. There are only two different places where it even fits.  I just realized that I hate how crammed my polish is and I want to move all my holos to one bookcase and spread them out so I can see my pretties.  Plus Polish Amor and I have made a pact that we can no longer buy any polish except for Enchanted Polish and Liquid Sky Polish.  Any other purchases have to be approved by the other.  Like asking your mommy for permission kind of thing.  We have realized we are out of control and can no longer control our impulses.  We need the other to reign in our spending and hoarding.  I have one exception which is a Jade holo which I have on back order.  I can also buy MoYou stamping plates.  Other than that, nada, zilch no more polish.

We shall see how this works.

Oh and the awesome news for today?  Fashion Polish knows who I am!!!!!!!  Yes the awesomesauce Sam who gets a million views a month knows who I am!  She followed me on Instagram and left me a comment on how she liked the colors on the mani I am about to show you for today.  I was speechless, did a happy dance and proceeded to tell her how awesome I think she is.

It made me day.  You all know how I have been down lately over the contests and the blogazons.  For her to like my little nubs really meant something to me.

OK enough of all that.  I will say that I have new favorite colors in today's mani.

Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is also a new brand to me.  This is LCN Audrey, Seche Silly and Sensible and LCN Rita.

This is now my new favorite yellow and orange of all time.

I started with skittles.

I tried to shape my nubs a bit.  Oh and this green is no slacker either.  Top five for sure.  It has hidden shimmer-did you see it?

Next I stamped using my new MoYou plate Artist 7 using their stamping black polish.  I added a stud to the green and voila.

What makes these MoYou plates so awesome and different from other plates? They are their own scene.  Each plate could be framed and hung on the wall.  It's something no other company has thought of before.  Here is the plate I used today.


So you choose what part you want to use.  How awesome is that?  I have many more to show you and more on the way.  This is why I sold off all my other plates!

Also, I have a serious fascination with Ancient Egypt and Hieroglyphics. I even bought a book to learn how to read and write it.  I have the belief that I was there in one of my past lives. Yup I believe in that stuff.

Anyway, this is the mani that Fashion Polish liked of mine.  Still have the big stupid grin on my face.

Plus, I just love this one even had she never liked it.  These are my kinds of colors!!!!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
