Dark,Vampy but Meh?

I stole a word my BFF Sarah at Spellbinding Nails always uses.  Meh-means it's ok but I'm not overly thrilled with it.  I was trying out a new sequence of layering, kind of like Canadian Nail Fanatic has been doing lately.  The sun has been in hiding for a while, so I didn't get sunshine shots and I think those would have really made this all better. Maybe if it comes out today, I will try to snap some and add them later.  There is a lot of tip wear.

My online dating is still ongoing.  I am currently "talking" with three different men. Does that make me a 'ho'? But have yet to meet any of them in person or talk on the phone as of today.  You guys have heard my stories so I'm sure you understand my wariness. These three seem very nice.  But it's only been two days so the jury is still out.  At least it's conversation right? Oh here's the latest scam story. Dude writes me how beautiful I am and OMG and all that crap.  I say to him, thank you but don't you have anything else to say? Oh and full disclosure, this guy was freaking HOT.  Then he tells me how he pays all this money in child support and really doesn't do anything and it's tough at times yada yada yada.  I write back, I don't do much either and I never hear from him again.  I ask my girlfriends and they tell me he was looking for a sugar mama and when I didn't say "that's ok honey, I'll pay for everything" he went elsewhere.  I'm sure he will find what's he's looking for.

On to the mani.  Here is your silly bottle shot for today.

This is my tackle-box stocked and ready to go on vacation!  Come on Labor Day!!!! Inside, this is OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest and Lynnderella Connect the Dots.  I had to have this OPI when I saw it.  I have neglected my no buy lately.  The Fall colors get me every time!

I started with the OPI.  I loved this color so much I didn't even do my normal accent nail. Here are the starting shots.

You've got to trust me that this is one gorgeous shimmery winey eggplant color.  It is stunning.  I next added a layer of Connect the Dots.  Here is that step.

I get that you can't see the black glitter.  That wasn't the point.  I don't have plain white glitter anymore.  I next stamped with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White using plate SDP M. Here is that step.

I wish this came out as cool as Canadian Nail Fanatic's.  She has done glitter under stamping and for her it just worked.  Maybe if the base color was lighter?  Anywho, the final step, you all know it my funky in the original OPI color.  Here are the results.

I think overall this is kind of cool.  Just not as cool as I thought it would be.  I definitely am loving this OPI color and plan to wear it again and again!

Do you have a word like Meh for when you do something subpar for your mani?  Thank you to Sarah for telling me this word!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
