I'm continuing on with the me manis today.  This one is subtle that you can't really see unless you're wearing it.  I didn't plan it that way, but it came out that way.

Still haven't moved my office yet, am told this Friday.  Again, I won't be holding my breath.  I did go back down into the space and upon re-inspection, it's not as bad as I had originally thought.  I think all of the cubicles hadn't quite been in place yet.  It's still crowded, but I guess I haven't a choice in the matter.  Plus, I tested my iPhone and it does work in that office.  Around the corner where one of my clinics are, I get no signal. This is another bonus.

I also bought some hand made bracelets from Wakami.  It's a charity-like thing and women in Guatemala weave them, sell them to people to make a living.  I got a set of seven.  I love them.  I got earth tones, greens and browns and am wearing them on my right wrist, since I have my Pandora-like bracelet on my left.  I am just waiting for the day my boss tells me they are against the dress code.  Once I put them on, I don't take them off.  Don't get your panties in a bunch, I wash them in the shower etc.

Back in the 80s, when the cool thing was to wear the ones made by friends, I literally had thirty of them on my left wrist.  The one picture of me that is my favorite, is of me and my bracelets.  Then, in the 90s, I had many silver bracelets on my left wrist.  This was not allowed during nursing school when I had my time actually taking care of patients.  I would take them all off, do my nursing stuff, and put them all right back on. People thought I was nuts.  It was who I was.  Now having all these new bracelets on, I kind of feel like I'm back there, being all younger and hipper.

Anything that happens to make me happy, always ends up being taken away.  So I'm just waiting for the day my boss notices.  Hopefully, she will remain oblivious as she is to most things.

Now on to the mani.  Here is the silly bottle shot.

This is Essie Twin Sweater Set, Sable Collar and Shearling Darling.  Why the stupid names to Essies, I have no idea.

I started with skittles.

I am so missing my sun shots!!!  I'm not sure about that middle finger one.  Seems like a weird color to me. Next I stamped using Bundle Monster plate BM 411.

I finished this off with a new nail charm bow and my funky.  Here are the results.

Close Up

I kind of like this one. I was totally in a red mood and this fulfilled that nicely.  I'm also loving my new nail charm.  I have more, but they are so big, it takes up my whole nail.  Not sure if that is a good look or not.

I'm going back on my formaldehyde treatment.  I have gone six months with just oil and my nails are not growing and they are peeling something awful.  I'll be doing a combination of moisture and formaldehyde. I need to do something.  I've got some NailTek coming and will also be ordering some DermaNail.  Spent yesterday studying Loodie's blog and her tomes on nail care.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
