I'm seeing spots

It's a monumental day here at FPM!  You all should know by now, that I am a brown fanatic.  I have so many brown polish it's insane.  But guess what.  I have found the brown that beats all browns.

Before the unveiling, you know I have to tell a story!  I've been telling you all about my new computer.  It's freakin amazing.  I'm sorry to gush so, but you have no idea just how old my other laptop was and how tech a licious this new one is. Yes I just made up a new word.

I have basically figured out the touchpad, but still struggling with the spacebar.  It only works if you hit it in the middle. Not the left, not the right only the middle.  I consider myself a pretty fast typer and this is slowing me down.  I have moved all my music from the old to the new. Only had to pay $25. Why does everything have to cost money?  I have yet to move over my Picmarkr program because I have lost the license key.  I really don't want to pay another $40 but if I must, I must.  This is the program I use to watermark my photos.  I'm sure there are better programs out there, I may research some, but I am used to Picmarkr.  Any suggestions out there?  I know about Photoshop-but don't know how much that costs.  I have emailed the company and have not heard back yet.  So I am watermarking on the old laptop and then moving the pics to the new. Kind of laborious, but necessary at this time.

Ok enough stalling!  Here is your silly bottle shot of today.

Now you knew I just had to show you this beauty!  This is off, but the keys light up when it's on. It's cool!  I like having the separate number section on the right.  Growing up, one of my chores was to check the math of my dad's employees.  I learned how to use the machine lightning fast so I could go out and have fun.  So I can now use the numbers without even looking at them.

This is Rescue Beauty Lounge Poco a Poco.  Yes people, this is a dusky pink with a bronzey shimmer.  Then Elevation Polish Monturull which is a gorgeous brown with a bronzey shimmer as well. I thought the shimmers on these would go nicely together. Finally there is Lilacquer Kitsune.

I started with Poco with an accent of Monturull.  Now it was raining, so I have only Ott Lite shots for today.  Here is that step.

Is this not the most gorgeous brown you've ever seen?  The color of melted milk chocolate with shimmer.  Oh I am in love people.  I need to do a whole mani using this and get sun shots to show off that shimmer.  Believe it or not,  I really think this pink is pretty.  It's not Barbie pink. It has sophistication to it.

Next I stamped using Monturull and plate SDP-L.  Here is that step.

Pretty cool so far right?  Next I added dots with OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys.  Yes it just dawned on me that I left that out of the bottle shot.  I'm sure you know what OPI looks like!  Here is that step.

Still with me here?  Next I added a layer of Kitsune, which is like Selkie, but with red shimmer.  Here is that step.

I agree, it's hard to see.  I wish the sun had come out for this!  I ended, as always, with my funky using Monturull and Suzi.  Here are the glorious results.

I think this is really cool.  You will be seeing this brown again.  Maybe very soon!

I think I need a tutorial for Windows 7. Stuff keeps happening while I'm typing and I don't know why.  Stuff moves around, things light up.  It's freakin me out!

Does this brown make you as happy as it does me?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
