Tribal Fail

I know I keep telling you how much I love Coewless and her tribals.  I so want to be able to do the graphic detailing she does.  She also just did this fantastic dotticure that you just wouldn't believe. I beg you, please click on all these links and see her awesomeness.

I know I'm damn good at stamping, I also know I suck ass at freehand stuff.  Today is no different.  I have ordered some new nail art brushes and I'm going to keep trying.  I think it's good to show you failures so people out there see that these things do happen.

Before that though, the fun things at work.  There's a rumor that my new boss is becoming a dictator.  I guess I should have appreciated my do nothing boss from before, because she at least did nothing.  This one is doing such nit picky stuff that it's just going to push more people to quit.  There is already such a high turnover rate for the staff, that that should be the focus.  Plus the abnormal number of times people call in "sick." That's what needs to be addressed.

Now she's saying she's going to reprimand people if they are using their cell phone. Yes if you are in front of a patient you are taking care of playing solitaire, I get that is a no no, but come on man!  The other rumor is getting reprimanded if you clock out at 23 past the hour, which in reality is allowed, but the new boss says "it's cheating" and you cannot clock out til the exact hour or half hour, like 4:30 instead of 4:23.  Well, I for one do this all the time.  I live an hour away and if I don't get out at 4:23, I literally run into more rush hour traffic and get home later.  For me though, I rarely take my full half hour lunch, or work through lunch so if she tries to mess with me, I'll just bring that up.

The other thing?  It blizzarded again.  As you know, I got in trouble last time so this time, I knew I had to make it in.  Trust me I tried people.  But it was so bad, it took me 30 minutes to go 2 miles.  Now I live an hour away, so it would have taken me three hours to get there.  I just had to turn around and come home. My neighbor made it six miles away and turned around herself, saying the roads were ice.

The funny thing?  My stupid coworker who lives more north then I do, got her husband to drive her and they left at 5AM before the snow even started.  So that made me look even worse.  When the blizzard finally hit where my job is, they realized oh it's really bad out there and sent everyone home at 12:30.  So I am planning on losing pay again, but am hoping because people got sent home, I won't.  I haven't been called into the principal's office yet, so fingers crossed.

More fun work stuff next post.

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Misa Icy River and Liquid Sky Lacquer Sugared Berries.  More purple in real life of course!

I started with all Berries.

Close Up

Yes I know how bad this looks-but I haven't given up yet!  It took lots of practice to get to be a good stamper-so I'll keep trying.  I did get my new brushes and they are so tiny and delicate that it seems they will be way better for the small detail.

Yes I wore this to work and from a distance it does look new agey and such.  If I'm telling myself a tale that is!

What nail art do you wish you were better at?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
