Stop Staring!

Today's post is one I am really loving.  I really tried hard to make my stamping perfect and my nails perfect.  I think I did a pretty good job of it.

First, a funny story.  I had read about this cuticle remover called Blue Cross.  I decided I wanted to try it.  I went on Amazon and ordered it up.  The day it arrived however, I was amazed at how heavy and big the package was.  When I opened it up, I realized I had ordered a QUART of cuticle remover.  I totally did not pay attention to what I was buying. When will I ever use a quart of remover?  It wasn't worth it to pay to ship it back, so I kept it.  Has that ever happened to you before?

I tried it out and it's as liquid as water.  Picture me at the sink with a quart bottle trying to pour a watery liquid just on my cuticles. Was quite the funny scene.  Of course it spilled everywhere, and was all over my hands.  If only I wasn't so lazy as to get a small bowl or eye dropper to apply it.  That's for next time.  I did spend a good amount of time on my hands and nails this time.  It was over due.

Before we get to it though, I realized I hadn't shown random kitty shots lately.  Here are my babies snuggled up sleeping.

Aren't they adorable?  I know I've shown this sort of picture before. They always sleep in these positions.  I was digging how Checkers had her little paws on Sam's head.  This next picture is after Checkers got up and Sam had the whole chair to himself.

Yup, that's him in all his 26lb glory!  He's my big baby!  Although he is ten and technically a senior kitty.

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy, Bondi Starry Night and Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse.

I started with a full mani of Starry Night.  This is a gorgeous dark blue with shimmer. Here are the starting shots.  Please note my gorgeous cuticles and polishing!

For the moment, my nails are looking pretty good so I'm enjoying it while it lasts! Must be all that cuticle oil I'm bathing them in!  Isn't this a gorgeous blue?  I just love it!

Next I stamped with Blue Mousse and Cheeky Jumbo plate 1 Viva Mexico.  Here is that step.

Now you get my title don't you?  I have to say, I did some great stamping here!!  I finished this off simply with my funky in Stormy.  I tried Selkie on my thumb, but it just wasn't a good idea.  Here are the results.

I am totally in love with this mani and these new Cheeky plates!  They are so cool!!  I suggest you run out and get them!

Have you ever bought something and when you got it were shocked at what you got?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
