The mani that kicked my a**

So three very, very cool things happened to me yesterday.  First, a lover of my blog knew I was lemming All Love Garden by Enchanted Polish and she managed to get me one as a surprise in the secret sale that had happened. Trust me I did a happy dance all over the place.

Then, my polish bestie, found me October 2013 for $25.  I was all over that one.  So my two biggest EP lemmings squashed in one day.

Then the ultimate of all things happened.  Sam from Fashion Polish told me that she reads my blog, every post and likes my blog!  She was one of my very first followers, I had known that, but had no idea she actually READS it!  Trust that I was happy dancing my little heart out finding that out.  I am such a huge fangirl of her blog that it means a lot that she would actually read my silly stories!  Thank you for making my day Sam!!

Trying to even remember what today's mani is.  I got the pictures all ready to go days ago and I'm totally having amnesia!  It doesn't help that I'm having a migraine that has lasted two days so far.  OK, just consulted my Instagram account and now I remember!

This is the mani that kicked my ass.  I restamped and restamped that sucker three times to get the design correct.  I never have that much trouble stamping any more.  I so gave up and just went with what was there.

I also wanted to do a shout out to my all new favorite top coat.  Glisten & Glow HK Girl Topcoat has surpassed my love and dedication to Seche Vite.  This is huge people.  This top coat has been life changing for me.  Before when I'd do my nails, I'd have to be super careful for an hour after I did my base color and sometimes, I'd still dent it after all that time.

Not with this.  I'm talking this stuff is dry in minutes.  Like 5 minutes.  I've actually done my nails and walked out the door twice now.  This was unheard of before I tried this topcoat.  Now I've tried two other indie top coats.  Nailcare HQ-who's base coat I'm devoted to, but didn't love her top coat.  Glossy Glam didn't do it for me either.

Besides the speed of drying, my other need with top coat is little smearing of my stamping-this one does that plus when I mess up a design, I can use non acetone remover to remove the design but not mess up the base color underneath.  This made it through this mani and redoing it three times before finally getting into the base color. I'm telling you people, you've got to try this stuff.  My Seche now sits collecting dust.

Next time, I'll be getting a vat full!

Now on to the ass kicking mani.  Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Liquid Sky Lacquer Just Mauvelous, A Nice Chianti and Llarowe Oxen.

I started with skittles.

I've got to tell you, either I keep getting a bad batch of Llarowe, or it's just not for me. On my ring finger is Oxen and it's not very blingy and the formula was watery and jelly-like.  Not to my liking at all.

Next I stamped using my Bettina Bordeaux using MoYou Mother Nature plate 1. As I said before, I redid this design three times before I just said f*ck it and left it alone.

Yes these are birdcages-they did come out after all that work.  These Liquid Sky are so gorgeous, I'm glad I bought them all!

The stickers are just some random ones that come with some plates I bought awhile back.  I was so frustrated that I threw them on so I'd be done.

I want to say a heart felt thank you to MrsEnj, Iris and Sam who totally went out of their way to make my day and I love you guys.  Thank you so much!!!!

I also wanted to say thank you to all my readers out there that I know love my blog just as much!  You guys are the reason I'm sitting here writing this!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
