Storm Break

Today I have something very special for you.  A brand new, unreleased prototype holo. It's dark, edgy and steel grey linear.  Stunning people.  It was sent to me to try out to see if it is worthy and I totally think it is. Hopefully it will go on the market so you can get your own!

Before we get to that however, a fun work story.  I had to go to an inservice for high level disinfection. I was all prepared to be bored out of my skull as I usually am at these things, but this dude teaching it had my attention.

You see, in my head and neck cancer clinic we scope people.  Which means we have a scope, which is a long tube that has a camera on the end that the MDs stick into people's noses and down their throat to check on their cancer.  I am responsible for cleaning these scopes.

Well, this dude was telling us how if we ever were involved in a hospital lawsuit that if we don't do the exact manufacturer's instructions, that even if we didn't do anything wrong, if we didn't follow those instructions, we are liable.

He started talking about those Clorox and Lysol commercials and how they say they disinfect?  Have you actually read the label?  NOPE? Go do it now.  I'll wait.

Did you read it?  The commercials mislead you into thinking you're miss happy housewife, spraying things, wiping down things and you're killing all sorts of nasty germs right???  Well it's so NOT true.  Again, read the label.  You must preclean the area, then use enough wipes or spray to keep the area wet for ten minutes for some products out there.  One wipe dries in 30 seconds or so.  So how many Clorox/Lysol wipes would you need to keep said area wet for ten minutes?  Certainly not just the one you see them do on TV.

This is known as not following the manufacturer's instructions.  A majority of people don't.  I know I don't. So this topic fascinated the hell out of me since I use Clorox wipes every day.  But not to the specifications of the label that's for sure.

The same thing goes for dishwashing liquid.  Do you do what the instructions say? Or do you just squirt some in there to make a pile of bubbles?  What are bubbles really? Just air and air doesn't clean dishes.  Plus the bubbles obscure what's in the sink.  You could cut your hand on a knife.  So you really are just supposed to use one drop like the commercial says.

Makes you think doesn't it??????

On that note, let's see what I have for you today shall we?

This is Liquid Sky Lacquer Spring Fever and Storm Break with China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around.

I started with skittles and I apologize in advance, my fingers are horrible.




How awesome is this steel grey holo??? I love it!

Next I doodled with my brushes.  Here are the results.

Unfortunately, I smeared the hell out of it with my top coat, but I do think this is a pretty cool mani. I just wish my hands would heal so I wouldn't have to black out so much!

Do you love this new holo?  Would you buy it?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
