Enchanted Polish Engineered to Destroy

I have reached yet another milestone today.  As you read this, my blog officially turns 3 today.  I cannot believe I have been writing on this thing for so long!  It's a crazy thing to fathom.  Who knew when I started this.  I sure didn't. I just started this to pass the time, keep me out of trouble sort of thing.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I'd own polish valued at $500 or so many damn bottles of polish.

I have to admit though, that I am kind of tired doing this blog at the moment.  I haven't been reading any of my normal blogs at all in the past few months.  Ever since Google Reader died and my work started tracking what we do on the internet.  I have been more focused on my Instagram page, which now has more followers than this blog does.  I am also active in several Facebook groups as well as running my own holo group.

Lately, I have had thoughts of not doing this anymore and just concentrating on Instagram.  Those of us who have a blog knows how much damn work goes into it.  Plus I have my new camera I want to play with and start doing nature pictures.  I've started a new Instagram page just for that.

I know that people are still looking at this blog, as I see the stats.  About 200-250 a day look at my pictures. I'm not sure if people are actually reading my words or just skipping to the pictures.  If no one is actually reading this, I'm better off just doing Instagram which doesn't need words, just pictures.

On the other hand, I do get a kick out of sharing my stupid life stories here with you. Let me ask people-would you miss this blog if I quit doing it?

Let us revisit the very first picture posted on this blog.

Oh the horror that is this picture!  Taken with my iPhone 3G and just awful.  I won't even go into how bad my stamping was back then either!

I've come a long way baby-and what a strange trip it's been.

Today I have a polish that is so special, I wore a full mani and did no art.  WHAT?????

Three cameras, three iPhones and three years later-how cool is that statistic?????  This is Enchanted Polish Engineered to Destroy, one of the collaborations with Mishka.  Oh yeah people. I had to have this one.  I swapped one of my original EPs for this set of three.  ONE of mine for three new ones.  Yeah, it was worth $300.

Who knew back then when I bought up all the Enchanted Polish that this would happen? Trust that that will be the one and only EP I ever let go of.

Oh and since I got this new camera? Please click on the pictures to get the full effect of the awesomeness.

Oh the beauty that is this polish and the beauty my camera makes of these pictures!  I still can't get past that! The one bummer I will say about this stunning polish?  It's not that pretty out of the sun.  Although it does has flashes of being green at certain angles which is cool, I would not love it as much as I do had it not been this pretty in the sun.

So there you have it.  Three years, three cameras and three iPhones later.  A chronicle of my polish love and my vast improvement in technique.

What do you think?  Would you miss this blog if I stopped doing it?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
