Paisley Jelly

Besides houndstooth, paisley is my other favorite design.  It just so happens that the new set from Bundle Monster had a paisley stamp.  Of course, I just had to play with it.

Still no updates for you on my online dating adventure.  The ones I like, don't like me and vice versa.  It's scary to see just how many of these 40 somethings have never been married.  Do you see that as a huge red flag?  I think I do.  It makes you wonder what is so wrong with these guys that no woman has hitched her wagon to them.  It also makes me wonder what's wrong with me?  I'm hip, I'm happening aren't I?  Well only in my mind people.  I used to be hip and happening, but that was a long time ago.  Now I'm just a legend in nail polish (HAHA) and guys just don't get that.

Let's get on to what I am good at, and that's the silly bottle shot.

This is SoFlaJo Open All Night from her new Life's a Beach collection, The Nail Junkie Yellow and Green Jellies from her summer 2012 collection and Bettina Yellow.

I started with the Green jelly which is a squishy, sheer sparkly neon green.  Here are those shots.

Yes this color is loud and it freaked my camera out some, but in the Ott pictures, you can see the sparkles.  It is sheer, but does build up nicely.  I usually hate VNL, but I knew I'd be doing my funky and that would cover it up.

Next I stamped with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White using BM plate 315, added a layer of Open All Night which is a green shimmer color changer. I then did my funky first using Bettina Yellow and topping it with the Yellow jelly.  This was because the jelly was too sheer to funky alone.  I screwed up and didn't get my usual step by step shots.  So I have already smacked myself for that one!  Here are your final shots.

Check out the detail in this stamp!  Bundle Monster truly did a good job with these plates.  I am loving the crispness and detail on this paisley.  One other thing?  I woke up in the middle of the night and my nails were glowing white.  It sort of freaked me out, til I remembered I had bright polish on.  So be aware of that!

I just love the contrast in this green and yellow.  The shimmer is from the SoFlaJo and I just love that too. Any thoughts on my online dating drama?  Should I give it all up now and save myself the misery?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
