Essie Nude Beach and a rainbow

Today we are having a flashback.  Back to the days before I really discovered nail polish.  Back when all I was sporting was a classic French mani.

So haven't updated you on the online dating stories lately.  I just haven't been into it and have stopped believing anything other than blog fodder will come of it.

Just got a message that simply said, "I like your face."  OK thanks I think.  Then there's the guy who seemed way too into me before we even met.  Plus I was on vacation and he claimed I wasn't giving him enough attention.  Really?  Then after I got home, I made the mistake of not telling him I made it home-what are you my mother? And I woke up the next morning to a tirade of about 16 texts.  These would have been funny had they not been so crazy.  When someone throws their income at you and how many other woman they could have besides you, there's an issue. A big one at that.

I decided to leave that one alone.

My other recent enlightenment is regarding the Facebook groups I'm in.  Why is there so much negativity and put downs out there?  You know I love my Enchanted Polish, it's my favorite holo brand.  Well it seems each and every time a new color comes out, there is such a mass of hate and eww that color is ugly etc.  Why can't she make this color or that color?  Well perhaps because it's HER company and she can make any damn color she wants and if you don't like it, don't buy it, or better yet, go out and make your own. It makes me so upset every time.

Someone said to me that this is bound to happen any time any product is made and that bad publicity is still publicity and I get that, but why can't you simply say, that color's not for me and leave it at that?  Why is it people have to go the extra mile and put it down?  I admit, maybe I'm too invested as I love it so much, maybe if I saw it about another brand, it wouldn't affect me.  I don't know.

What I do know is I left a bunch of the groups I was following.  Lately, I just haven't the wish to read each and every post and reply and all that work.  I was in like 10 or 12 groups.  Now I'm in 7, one being the group I started to stop the negative at least in my small part of the internet.  I want to leave more of them, but I'm still thinking about the others.

OK. Let's get to it.  I have nubbing to do!  Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Essie Nude Beach and Bettina Lingerie.

Oh also one last thing. You may have noticed instead of posting every other day, I've been doing Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.  I've noticed my reader numbers are way down plus I've just been feeling blah about the whole thing again.  This is officially my 602th post.  Holy Crap that's a lot of stories!

Remind me next post to talk about the new iPhone 6 Plus! MUST HAVE!

Anywho, this Essie is NOT 3 free and is from years ago.  When I was using it, I got that old time chemical smell.  Know what I mean?  I've no idea if they even still make it. This was my pink for my classic French.

EDIT** They do still make it and I just ordered a new bottle!

For this mani, I did two layers of Lingerie and a layer of Nude.


Pretty right?  The crazy thing though?  I'm used to darker colors and when I'd glance at my hands, it was like something was missing.  HEHE!

Next for something very cool, I did a different type of French mani using acrylic paint. For those of you missing my funky french-here you go!  Here are the VERY cool results.

Do you see the rainbow?  The last color IS purple, but my camera freaked. Originally, I wanted to have a rainbow per nail with 5 flowers per nail.  But my poor tiny nails couldn't hold that many so instead I made a rainbow out of all my nails together. Oh how I love that Nude Beach shimmer to this day!

What do you think?  I love this!!!!!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
