Sticks and Sticks

The saying goes sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.

What a load of crap right?  Any of us out there who has been picked on, knows this very well.  I'm wondering how and who came up with this saying?  I'm sure if I were ambitious enough, I'd google it.  I'm just not that curious I guess.

I get that it probably means names will never physically hurt you like sticks and stones. I never did like this saying.  When I was a kid, I was picked on big time.  I was the band/choir geek, not the jock that most of the school was.  I wore piano ties to go with my geekness.  I remember being picked on and you better believe it hurt.  Some of it is still with me today.

Why am I on this tear today?  No idea really, it just came to me as I was sitting here writing this post.

I decided it's been a while since I did a me mani.  What this means is a total brown fest just for me to enjoy.  Believe me, I needed this little pick me up.

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Rescue Beauty Lounge Decorous and Fortissimo.  Two of my favorite browns.

I started with Decorous and an accent of Fortissimo.  The sun was no where to be found. So you'll have to settle with inside shots.  Here they are.

Decorous does have subtle shimmer in the sun, but it's hiding here.  Aren't these to die for?  I love this!

Next I stamped using plate Pueen05.  Here is that step.

Now you get where the sticks and stones came from right?  I topped this off with my funky.  Here are the chocolicious results.  Yes I just made up a word.

Personally, I think this is very cool.  Then again, I did do this just for me to enjoy so of course I'd like it!

You other brown lovers out there-are you loving this too?  Brown lovers unite!!!!  HAHA!

Just trying to convert the world one mani at a time.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
