Chanel Khaki Brun, Khaki Vert

Today I did what I call a mani for one.  That one where you do it just for you, colors you love and a design you want to see. The silly thing? It was a hit on Instagram.  Go figure.

Yesterday at work was a rough one.  Was talking to a daughter whose father is sick.  She started sounding just like me that it was eerie.  She was saying how she had been yelling at her dad to make him eat and other things.  It thrust me right back to right before my dad died.  I actually called her back later and told her that yelling at him won't work, that she doesn't want to have the last conversation she has with her dad to be her yelling at him like I did.  I told her that I have been living with that regret since the day he died.  That the last conversation I had with my dad was yelling at him telling him he has to eat or he will die.

I remember it vividly.

I implored her to please not do that, as it won't get him to eat anyway.  That she needed to spend the time she has left with him reminiscing or talking about different things, anything that the two of them enjoy.  I told her she does not want to have the guilt I now have over this.  I was crying, she was crying and I hope I helped her and her situation.

I am still having a very difficult time with his death.

That's why we have today's mani!

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Rescue Beauty Lounge The Mosses Mar and The Lonely House with Chanel Khaki Vert and Khaki Brun in the middle.  Just realized I forgot the Chanel caps!  Whoops.

I started with a full mani of  Khaki Vert.  I had seen a post on Maria's blog and I had bought this in 2010! WTF???? I know I've been collecting polish for a bit, but that's five years ago!  Her post reminded me that it has been forever since I wore it last.  Probably 2010! HAHAH!


OMG! This is totally a ME color. Appropriate for a mani for one that you wear the colors that make you smile. No one else matters.  It's what a lot of people call a 'fug' color.  Because most think its ugly.  Not me man!

Next I painstakingly placed many pieces of tape and polished in the stripes.  Yes it took a long time.


Isn't this just gorgeous? I could not stop staring at this while I wore it.  Imagine my surprise when I gained about 25 new followers on Instagram because of this!  I thought I'd actually lose some!

Ya just never know do ya?

Do you ever do a mani for one?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
