CbL Blond Ambition, My Broken Down Crop Duster

Please do not adjust your computer screen.  You have not entered the Twilight Zone (although DAMN that was a good show), you have reached my new and improved blog atmosphere.  It has not been easy, it has not been a good time.  But I sure hope you like what I've done.

I had been working with a blog designer.  What a mistake that was.  She didn't listen to what I wanted, she did what she wanted and it was a huge disaster.  Stupid me didn't think to back up my blog before she installed her vision, not mine and I was left with crap.  Yes I got most of my money back.  I did keep the header she made from my idea and the social media icon buttons.  The rest I deleted and started over from scratch all by myself.

I spent over 4 hours googling how to HTML code, reinstalling stuff I had before that had been deleted and generally starting over from nothing.  So far, I am pretty happy with it. I plan to still mess with the fonts and try to figure out how to make her social icons bigger.  I did figure out how to center them.  Go me!  But the overall feel is done.

I plan to live with this for while, see what I think.  Maybe in the future, I will hire another designer, but for right now, I'm happy with how things look.

PLEASE let me know your thoughts, comments, ideas for change, anything.  I really want you to be happy here when you come to visit.

Now today's mani started out happy enough.  Then in my mind, it got ruined.  But people on Instagram sort of liked it.  I'll let you decide.

Here's the silly bottle shot.


This is Colors by Llarowe Blond Ambition and My Broken Down Crop Duster on the outside, Mundo de Unas stamping polish in Mustard and Chocolate on the inside.

I started with the two CbLs.

I still have yet to wear this Blond Ambition as a full mani.  It's SO blingy, I'm afraid it will blind me! HAHA!  Man these two are just amazing holos aren't they?

Next, I ruined them by stamping on top.  One you can't see, the other takes over the bling.  I tried to do a Thanksgiving theme with Bundle Monster plates BM H-11&12.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
What you can't see are pumpkins and vines on the middle nails.  Oh well, they can't all be winners right??????

Again, please send me your thoughts on my new blog design.  I'd really love to hear from you!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Enchanted Polish Dime Piece and Presto Magic

I have a confession to make to you all.

I, Fingers, have an addiction.  I'm addicted to polish.  Nail polish that is.

All the pretty colors, I just can't help myself.

Want to know why I'm telling you this?  Yesterday, I got off work at 2pm, went to Target (tar-jay) and totally forgot all about the Limited Edition Duo from Polish My Life at 3pm.  I literally remembered at 2:58 pm.  Where was I? In my car getting on the highway. A seriously crazy, busy no holds barred highway.  One I almost get taken out on on a weekly basis.

I thought, I can shop while driving.  Then I thought, nope, not with the iphone 6 plus.  It's way too damn big for one handed things.  Man I used to be able to blindly type one handed etc with my 5S. But no more.  As much as I love my 6plus, I miss doing that.

What did I do?  Pulled off the highway on the side of the road, put on my flashers and hit refresh until I was successful in getting my LE Duo set!  WOOHOO! You see, I hadn't even known about it when it sold out the first time 2 days ago.  I'm so enamored with this brand and her creams, I had to have it.

I just think it's hilarious what we polish addicts do to get what we want!  Don't even tell me you've never done something so silly as what I did!

Oh and my nails are getting way too long.  I've already cracked the corner on one nail, that I told you about.  Well yesterday, I was making my bed and hit my nail on the wrought iron, cracked another nail.  Just now? I realized just typing here, that I cracked the cracked nail in another place. I'll be getting out my glue and gel polish in a moment to fix it.  I may be filing them down today as well. Haven't decided yet.

Since I've got to save my nail, let's get to it.  Here's your silly bottle shot.


This is Mundo de Unas Blue Navy, Enchanted Polish Dime Piece and Presto Magic.

I started with skittles.

So blingy, it freaked my camera out!  I tried to stamp with my MoYou plate, but it wasn't etched right, so I removed it and used my Nailz Craze NC03 plate and Blue Navy.

The design isn't as crisp as I normally do, but I had removed the previous stamping and some was left over.  It still looks cool though!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Polish My Life Nude Lace, Plum Mums and Mundo de Unas Violet

Today's mani was inspired by another account on Instagram.  I took her premise and made it my own. I have to say, it's a gorgeous thing!

I am still hard at work on the redesigning of my blog.  It's taking me awhile to get it just right.  I think we're almost there.  I want it to be perfect.  Once I get the header and background design where I want it, the rest will be easy.  I'm sure I'm driving the designer crazy with my changes, but I know what I want when I see it.  Stay tuned for the reveal at some point in the future!

The day this post actually posts, will be the day before I have five whole days off in a row.  I cannot wait.  I already have a list of chores to do, gutters, leaf raking, closet cleaning, that sort of thing.  I also plan to do a ton a magazine reading as I'm way behind as well as take a ton of naps.

You have no idea how much I need this break!

It's also the day I have to buy a set of new tires for my car.  I am almost out of tread and since I drive like a maniac, I need that tread to keep my car on the road.  Bummer is the expense of them.  It makes more sense to buy tires with more mileage to them so as to not have to buy them ago so soon in the future.  I'm getting 65,000 mile tires for $600 a set of four.  Not too bad, but damn I hate to have to shell out that kind of money.

Think of all the polish I could buy with that! At least the guy at my car shop is cute.  I can stare at him and the money will all be worth it.  HAHAHA!  It's my silver lining people. You have to find the positive in these things!

All right, last post I promised to show you just how amazing and crisp this Mundo de Unas polish stamps.  So let's get to it.

Here's the silly bottle shot.


I forgot to add the stamping polish here.  This is Polish My Life Nude Lace and Plum Mums.

I started with a different accent nail.  You'll see why later.

Man I love this brand of polish!

Now I got my idea for this design from Mllrdesign on Instagram.  I saw what she did and knew I could rock it out as well. I stamped with Mundo Violet using my all time favorite stamp design on Bundle Monster plate BM306. I then taped off two nails and finished it off.

Here are the amazing results.

Flash

Flash
Sadly, my camera is showing these purples as blue.  Know IRL, it is a gorgeous purple. Now I want to you to look closely at my stamping.  Notice the crisp clean stamp? That's this Mundo polish.  It's amazing stuff.  Every detail is picked up, every part equal color.  I love it!

I also love this design!  Isn't it cool?  I just wish I could come up with such cool ideas on my own!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Pipedream Polish On The List, Mundo de Unas High Green

Oh people! It just keeps getting better and better.  It's the latest on the Stupid saga!

Stupid was not at work last Friday.  Not like I give a sh*t, but I at least noticed.  I didn't even care enough to ask why she wasn't there.  In comes Stupid on Monday and she's now wearing a foot boot. It seems she now has pain in her foot and needs to wear the boot.  Right............

Want to know what I think?  I think she was told that she has to get off her ass to do clinics, and she's come up with a new and inventive way not to have to.  Yeah, I believe this to my very core.  So does one of my coworkers.  Let's see how long this goes on for.

Her other update?  She's been reprimanded for unapproved overtime.  WTF????? Overtime???? What the hell does she do all day that she needs overtime? Hmmmmmmm.  And she's the only one who got said email about this.  Maybe she's just special.  NOT.  What she did say while ranting was and I quote, "I'm not staying here."

Well, my dear, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

In other news, I told you how I was dreading Monday.  I ended up being pulled out of my regular clinic, but I refused to not do my MD conference.  So there.  Actually, it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  It was a cold, rainy day and literally over half the patients cancelled their appointments. I'm going to assume I'm covering tomorrow's clinic as well. It's just easier that way.  I busted my ass yesterday getting my work caught up knowing this will most likely happen.

I've also had several patients die lately. A couple I really liked. Yes I cried.  No I'm not ashamed of that.  As I told my dad when they were here a couple weeks ago, that when I don't cry is the time I need to find a new job.

Now, for my regular peeps, today's base color is going to freak you out.  Don't worry, I haven't hit my head or anything.  I'm still under the same rock as always with my dark and vampy.

Here's the silly bottle shot.


This is Pipedream Polish On The List and Mundo de Unas High Green stamping polish.

I started with an entire mani of this hot neon pink.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
Gorgeous isn't it??????  I knew when I saw these two colors together, they would be awesome! I used plate SDP-L and the High Green.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
I have to say, this stamping polish is so amazing that it even picks up the tiniest details that others don't pick up.  It'll be more obvious on the next post.

If you're a stamper, you NEED this stamping polish in your life.  I can't wait for my next order to arrive.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Polish My Life Birthday Suit, Enchanted Polish October 2014, Pipedream Polish Light of Day, Tape

I'm behind in my time schedule today.  I should have already painted my nails by now and be relaxing on the couch.  Nope, I'm still writing posts!  HAHA!

The one sort of good thing that happened this past crap week was my really high up boss (my boss's boss) told me my ears should be ringing.  This is code for someone's talking about you.  Apparently, they are finally realizing what I do at my job.  Even though I've been doing the same thing since 2009.  My last boss could care less because I took over her old job and redid it and made it way better.  But now with my new boss, people are finally paying attention.

So she wants to meet with me at some point and go over what I do exactly.  I told her then, that I'm just the dictator of my domain.  I'm not so sure she liked that remark.  But oh well.  While I'm happy that they are finally recognizing my greatness, it sucks that it's taken so long.

Oh and the meeting I skipped? Stupid and my coworkers were told basically to suck it up, this is how it is from now on.  There was supposed to be a followup meeting this past Friday, but the boss couldn't make it.

Bummer for them.

Here's the silly bottle shot.


This is Pipedream Polish Light of Day, Enchanted Polish October 2014 and Polish My Life Birthday Suit.

I started with all Birthday Suit.  It's a gorgeous off white cream.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
Gorgeous isn't it?????  This is why I sold off some polish.  To make more room for this brand!

Next I placed tape and did this.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
Kind of evil eye-ish? This is the newest EP color.  I need to wear a full mani of it.  I don't think you get the green hints here.  Not sure I'm in love with this design, but I do love these colors together!

What do you think?

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?

Pipedream Polish High Roller, Polish My Life Storm Clouds, stamping

So I've done it again.  I've run out of polish room and had to destash.  I've got over 100 polish up on NNR on Facebook.  I need this stuff gone!  I don't get enough traffic here to do it on my blog anymore.  But if you're in that group-buy my stuff!

I've also gotten my first cracked nail since I did the gel dip.  Damn eye glasses have cut out designs on the side and it caught one of my nails just right and cracked the corner. Luckily, it didn't break completely off and I was able to use nail glue, Orly nail rescue and gel polish to glue it back in place. It seems strong, but now I'm all sorts of paranoid. Should I go back to three coats of gel?

Stupid glasses.

I had the week from hell last week.  It culminated in my boss calling me Friday afternoon to tell me she was once again taking me out of my regular clinic to cover someone's clinic who is on vacation. Remember my bitch fest about this very thing before?  And I ended up doing both clinics at the same time? Yeah, it's that again.

I simply told my boss that no I won't do it, that it's not ok and why did I bother training the other chick if you were just going to pull me again? There was a long silence and then my boss said, I'm telling you, you will do this.  I hung up the phone on her, clocked out and left work half an hour early.  I'm pissed.  This is not ok to continue to do this when you knew two months ago, she was on vacation Monday.

I'm not looking forward to tomorrow at all.

Here's the silly bottle shot.


This is Polish My Life Storm Cloud, Pipedream Polish High Roller and Mundo de Unas Violet.

Forgot to mention, I added a layer of holo topcoat to these!  These Polish My Life creams are my new love!  The neons are fun too!

Next I simply stamped with Violet using Cheeky jumbo plate 7.  Why? Because a light bulb went off when I saw this idea in my head!

HAHAHA! Get it? A light bulb went off?

Yeah, that's my humor talking!

My Favorite Color Is Holo, Cbl Black Gold, Stamping!

I am so tired right now.  I'm barely awake as I write this.  It's nails day again today.  I have been getting so many "nice nails" compliments lately, it's a funny thing.  I've never had that before!  I'm still not ready to cut down length, but I'm not going much longer than the length in today's post.  I don't want to have talons.  But since I've never even had nails this long, I'm enjoying them.  I do fear that the longer the free tip, the more likely I will break them off.  Hard to do, but I'm me and sh*t happens.

Yesterday was the day from hell at work.  My stupid coworkers were whispering too each other less than two feet from me.  Apparently they were discussing the meeting from last Friday that I skipped. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but damn is it rude to be talking about me when I'm sitting right there!  Just quit already and I can work in peace.

My computer decided to die on me as well and I had a stack of work to get done.  The computer guy came, couldn't fix it either and had to get someone else to come fix it. Yeah it died good!  So he then claims it's done, doesn't have me log in to be sure and leaves.  Of course, then I log in and another problem crops up and I have to call him back in.  Then he gives me attitude because he didn't fix it right? WOW.

Then our printer died and another computer guy came and decided to use TAPE to fix it. Yeah tape. Of course, what this caused was a new error message we've never gotten before.  I then removed the tape and it worked again.  So I had to call him back for that. He came back, replaced it with a "new" old printer and left.  Can you guess what happened then? Yeah, it didn't print.  Had to call him back a third time.  Seems he forgot to reprogram the printer number so we can print to it.  Again, he left without us testing it out, that's on him.  Another guy giving US attitude because you're an idiot.

Oh and he smelled bad too.  So when he left, the office had that smell lingering in the air.  I tell you it was awful.  Just awful.

I won't even go into the rest of it that made the day so bad.  Just know, I was glad when the day was done.

Oh and get this? I got a text from my mom! Seems I did teach them something! HAHA

Here's today's silly bottle shot.


This is Colors by Llarowe Black Gold and a made for me not for sale red from Cathy at More Nail Polish she named "My Favorite Color Is Holo" as that is true about me!

I started with the red and an accent of black.

Flash

Flash
I gotta tell you, this red freaked my camera out big time.  I had a difficult time getting a decent picture as it's so blingy!

Next I stamped using my Mundo de Unas stamping polish in Black and White using SDP-L plate.

Flash

Man this stamping polish works really well with these intricate designs!  I've already placed another order for more!  So stay tuned for lots more stamping!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?

CbL Young Grasshoppa and Mundo de Unas Stamping Polish!!!!

Finally.  After three long weeks of waiting, my new stamping polish from Mexico has arrived!

And boy does it smell like a chemical spill!  Phew!  But beyond that?  It's amazing stuff. I am in love and wish I had ordered more.  I bought eight dark colors and white.  Now I'm wishing I had bought some light colors as they are great for stamping on dark polish.  I do believe I shall be placing another order very soon!

I have to say though, the smell really is overwhelming. So if you are very sensitive, you may want to stamp outside, or not use this brand.  Not me man.  I'm all over this!

Since my parents and I were shopping all day yesterday, can you say screaming kids?, I didn't have time for anything fancy.  Since I hadn't done anything green in a while, I decided on that.

Here is the silly bottle shot.


This is Colors by Llarowe Young Grasshoppa and Mundo de Unas Military Green stamping polish.

I did yet another one color mani with Young Grasshoppa.

Flash

Flash
Holy crap!  How can you NOT love a holo like this???????  Let's just pause a moment and gaze longingly..........

Next I simply stamped using MoYou Suki plate.

Flash

Flash
Yes, it's subtle here, but oh so gorgeous in real life.  And this stuff stamps like a dream. Oh my people!  I'm in love!!!!!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

LSL Bippity Boppity Boo, Enchanted Polish La La Land, CbL In The Navy, and Tape

I ended up skipping the meeting I told you I was supposed to go to.  I made sure my clinic ran over so I didn't have to hear the whining.  Sad thing is, I had to hear it anyway when they came back to the office afterwards.  I am so hoping Stupid will just up and quit.  Ahhhhh how awesome that would be.

My parents are expecting me to rag on them for wearing me out during their visit to my house.  So I can't disappoint them can I?  I've started teaching them the basics of the iphone use.  So far, it hasn't been that bad.  Later, I've got to figure out their new car and the bluetooth hands free thing.  I've no idea about that.  Should be interesting.  What I do know is, today we are eating Thanksgiving dinner as they won't be here then, we thought we'd do it now.  The smells right now are killing me they smell so good!

Since I have more teaching to do, I'm going to get on with it.  Here is your silly bottle shot.


This is Colors by Llarowe In The Navy, Enchanted Polish La La Land and Liquid Sky Lacquer Bippity Boppity Boo.

I started with a full mani of Boo.  Damn, two in a row!

Flash

Flash
Wow I love this color!

Next I added some nail vinyls zig zag tape and did this.

Flash

I so wish the sun had come out for this! I bet it would have been that much more blingy!!!!  Not too complicated a mani, but very cool results.

All right, I'm off for more iphone teaching!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
