Rock My World Subtle

Just finished vacuuming and dusting my house.  The furball tumbleweeds had started taking over and I just couldn't stand it any longer.  I always like the end result, just not the actual getting it done. My vacuum has started rebelling or else it's possessed.  I haven't decided which yet.  What I have decided is that I need a new vacuum.

This one has started rolling in the power cord all by itself, while I'm using the vacuum, plus the HEPA filter trapdoor unexplainedly pops open on its own and loses suction.  It has become one huge, heavy pain in the ass.  I'll be vacuuming along, singing Lady Gaga very loudly, dancing and I'll wonder why the power cord isn't reaching as far as it normally does. Then I realize the power cord has retracted on its own again.  I'll be doing the floor and it refuses to pick up the cat fur that it has moved into a pile.

I'm telling you, the thing is acting possessed.  I will have to get a new one.  It's just how it is.  Mom you're getting a new vacuum!

Now today I tried something I have never done before.  Wearing a holo when there is no sun.  Yes it's kind of sad without the holo rainbows so I won't be doing that again.  But I was able to use my flash to show off some of it. It's just not the same without the sun.  I desperately need to make a light box!

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Liquid Sky Lacquer Rock My World, Sugared Berries, Black Opal and Walk on the Wild Side.

Did you notice something????  It's showing the purple!

I started with a full mani of Rock My World.  Here are the starting shots.

For some reason my camera has decided to show this color accurate and purple! What I did was have my Ott Lite in a dark room with it being the only light source. Whether it's that or my camera playing nice I have no idea.  You can see some of the linear rainbow here.

Next I sponged a gradient with the rest of the colors.  Here is that step.

Again, just as messy as my last post.

Here are the results after the cleanup.  I was feeling quite lazy and did no design over it.  Just the gorgeous subtle gradient.

I'm told this is way too subtle and you can't see the gradient.  I see it but realize it is subtle.  Sometimes a little subtle is a good thing!  I like how the flash shows the rainbows, it's just not the same as the sun.  But in a pinch, it'll do!  I have way too many new holos to show you to wait for the stupid sun to shine!!!!

Can you see the gradient?

Any vacuum recommendations?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
