Enchanted Polish Somewhere Under The Rainbow

Yes people, I have actually polished my nails.  The issue is, either I've forgotten how to take a damn picture with my camera or my camera is being a b*tch.  I could not get a good picture if my life depended on it.  I did get a halfway decent one using my iphone, so that's what I will use for today's post.

It seems I am flip flopping on whether to keep going with this blog or not.  Who the f*ck knows. If there's a post, rejoice, if not, maybe one is coming!

I did mention I have several EPs I haven't even worn yet so since the sun was out, I polished for the first time since May 1st.  My nails have been growing out the gel dip damage and I've finally stopped chewing the skin around my nails for the moment that I can actually show off my hands.

Issue is, my nails are all different lengths and shapes. For now, I'm just letting them be.  So no negative comments about the sh*t storm that are my nails at the moment.

Since I wanted to show you something else in this post, let's look at this new EP now.

Indoor Sun

I'm going to see if I can add the quick vid I took showing off the holo happiness of this polish.  Not the strongest in the polish world, but it shows you just why I love holos so much.  Now IRL, this polish is more purple than shown here.  I'm just happy I even polished! Sad that I have to take it right off though.........................let me know if you can see the vid or not.  It's my first time adding one.

Now, I've told you that I'm still a makeup junkie right? I actually found a rainbow highlight.  No it's not holo, but it's a rainbow on my face.  Yes you have to work really hard to get it to show just right. This is the only picture I have that shows it off very well.

Oh and warning, it's my face!

See the rainbow on the top of my cheekbone? There's also a bit in my inner eye as well.  It made my day when I caught this picture!

Let me know if you'd be interested in seeing my face with different makeup on schizz.

I'm off to watch the episodes of The Mist by Stephen King that I've missed.  And Spike it's not a novel, it's a novella.  Please correct that.  Drives me nuts.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Enchanted Polish June 2014

This is the last of the polish pics I had saved from before the ban.  I'm not sure how many posts I'm going to continue with.  Is anyone out there still reading these? I did get a couple of comments so thank you to those who did! My NexGen gel dip review is still my most popular post.  I still get at least 500 hits a day just to that post.  If you google NexGen, my blog pops up.

Which I guess is a cool thing, but people aren't staying to read other stuff, just that one post.  I also think I may be getting too lazy to keep up with this blog.  As much as I love it, it's s sh*t ton of work. People who don't blog have no idea just how much work it takes.

Have you heard that Kesha is coming out with a new album in August?  Yes I have already preordered.  I have listened to her single Praying that has been released.  I have only heard it once and my first impression is meh. I love the TikTok Ke$ha, not this cleaned up, totally obvious what the lyrics are about Kesha.  I so hope the rest of the CD is like the music we've known and loved.

I get she's been through a lot, but dayum people stop changing your sound.

It's like Lady Gaga.  Her first album is so different than her most recent one.  It's like she's gone from backdoor European club sounds to Country and I'm not about that.  I want Gaga to go back to her Bad Romance sound. That's my favorite from her so far.

I started reading the book, Thirteen Reasons Why.  I didn't realize it's a 'young adult' book. I figure it's going to wrap up with a nice cliche ending for all the tweens and teens that are reading it.  So far, it's not bad.  I don't always read popular books as I have specific taste in what I read.

If someone ain't murdered by page ten, I'm not interested! LOL.

I also had to change my ringtone back to Monty Python.  Every time my mom would call me, the damn Eminem ringtone would literally make me jump out of my skin.  It's just a jarring ringtone. But yes I'm still listening to it on repeat.

It's been hot as hell here.  They're calling for 99F by Wednesday.  Too bad I have to be out in it.  My car inspection is overdue.  Those who pay attention know that I do this every single year. I just can't get it done on time.  I just can't.

All right. Here is the old and still awesome EP June 2014.

Yeah, I miss my nails.............

Isn't this a gorgeous color? So many colors to be had in one polish.  They just don't make them like this anymore.  LOL! I wouldn't know as I don't pay attention to new polish releases anymore since I can't wear it I don't buy it.

So sad.

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?

Colors by Llarowe Army of One

So much to update you on, I don't know where to start.

I've decided to share my Crohn's disease story and struggles on my Instagram account.  Since I've scared off all the nail polish people, I'm looking to help others and maybe find some who are like me, so I can talk to them.

Back when I was diagnosed, I told myself I would take care of others with this disease but I really haven't. Instead, I've mostly hidden it from the world, pretending all is well.  Reality is, it's not.  I've been through a lot so far in my life-I've talked about it here.

I became a nurse because I had had so much practice as a patient.  I thought I would work on a floor that catered to people with Crohn's disease.  But there really isn't such a thing. So instead, I take care of others, and haven't really talked about what is going on with my illness.

I plan on doing some of that here.  I understand if that's something you don't want to see, but with the nail polish ban, I still want this blog to be active.  I am a work in progress.  My Instagram account has makeup looks, cat pics and Crohn's stuff.  So it's a mish mash.

I'm ok with that.

Now as far as work is concerned, there really hasn't been any huge stories.  They are still interviewing for another navigator.  They finally realized that we should actually interview the candidates since we have to work with them.

Duh right?

One of the ones I was a part of, I was like hell yeah, hire this chick. And they did.

Then I actually had to listen to her talking to patients on the phone and I was thinking to myself, damn, that was the wrong thing to be gung ho about!

Her voice is so nails on a chalkboard and she is too into the patient's life as in why are you taking that medicine and other minutiae which has nothing to do with cancer.  She spent so long on the phone the other day that I was wanting ear plugs!  It was just awful and since I said to hire her, I have to live with that decision!

Oh and Ms Princess is at it again! Remember she's the one who will look you in the eye, lie to your face and then stab you in the back.

She apparently thought that one of the coworkers hated her.  In reality she does.  HEHEHE. Anywho, Ms Princess did her manipulative crying as she does boohooing asking why she is hated. It is so her MO that I was dying laughing.  That's what she does. She cries at the drop of a hat.  It's hilarious. And she's in her low 60s! I mean when does one become a grown up??????

All right. Today we have a gorgeous green holo.  CbL Army of One.

Such a lovely minty light green.  I love these types of colors!!!!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?

Enchanted Polish Penny Lane

I have realized I have about four Enchanted Polish that I haven't even worn yet! This ban is killing me big time.  I have a HUGE secret that I will divulge to you when I can.  You're gonna freak out big time!

Since I have not had my gel nails on or polish on, I have gone back to my horrible habit of chewing the skin around my nails making them bleed and sh*t.  My nails were crap from having the gel dip on for years, but they are finally looking not too bad.  I actually thought about putting on some polish today but the sun isn't coming out and I don't want to wear a holo without sun!

I just backed up my iphone and I have 122 apps! That's a lot and no I'm not actively using them all.  I figure I have 128 Gb so I can have a lot of stuff on there.  So far I have 13Gb of music on there.

I recently bit the bullet and combined my ATT and DirecTV accounts like you see on the commercials.  They're all like come do this, it's great and it's so easy.

Uh huh.

I called and the first person I talked to wasn't stupid.  She did her part and said she was going to put me on hold while she completed the fusion.  Next thing I know, some dude comes on asking how he can help me.

It was downhill from there.

For the next 2.5 HOURS, I was shuffled back and forth between stupid people.  One after the other. Transferred from here to there, no one able to help me.  I kept getting oh that's not this department you need this other department.  I finally was SO pissed off my coworkers were thinking I was going to get myself into a car accident on the way home.

I would call in and demand a supervisor.  Each person would ask now what's the best number for us to reach you should we get disconnected? I was so mad that I just kept repeating get me a supervisor. I was put on hold and forgotten, or disconnected and I would call right back demanding a supervisor.

The last guy was very calm and took my tirade and kept saying that I had to give him a chance to help me etc, and would ask me questions, to which I would answer get me a supervisor.  Finally I got one and I went off and said it should not take me 2.5 hours to combine accounts like this.

So yeah that day was bad.

Then I got my first bill..............

Twice what I normally pay.  I called in and was like WTF people? I was told oh didn't anyone tell you? You had been paying as you used the minutes, with this new plan of unlimited everything, you pay a month in advance. Therefore, I had to pay two months at one time.  Oh and they still haven't added the TV portion of the bill yet.

That joy comes next week.

I saved an online chat about that and how much that better be or I'd going to go off big time!!

I will say that the change is nice.  Unlimited internet lets me watch all the YouTube makeup videos I want to and when mom is in Canada we can now talk and text for free, which before it was $1 a minute!

Alright.  Today we have an oldie but still a good one.  I have this in the original round bottle.  EP Penny Lane.

Indoor Sun

Indoor Sun
Oh yeah, this is the color of a brand new shiny penny with holo goodness added.  I simply love it.  No it's not pink, it's more a coppery color.  Don't think I've started loving pink!!!

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?

Colors by Llarowe Chillin' In Paradise

Woke up this morning feeling like writing a post or two.  I had nail polish pictures saved from April before the nail polish ban at work.  I have not worn any polish since May 1st when the ban went into effect.  Yes I am still trying to fight that at work.  I'm told that the OR nurses have nail polish on. That's like the one place that you really shouldn't be wearing polish!

I'm obsessed with the Eminem song Love Game.  I printed out the lyrics and am trying so hard to rap the words but dayum I can't talk that fast! I actually made this song my new ringtone.  Now that's a first as my ringtone has always been the second verse of the Monty Python song Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.

I have been active on Instagram if you guys are interested.  My account is JenHop13.  I just figured out that people can direct message you.  This brings me to why I decided to post today.  I got a message from a guy and it's the weirdest thing and I need you guys to tell me if I'm being paranoid or if this guy is a lying creep.

First I won't use the real name on Instagram so don't ask.

He writes something like hi how are you can we be friends sort of thing.  Let's just say his account name is John D Smith.  He says on the account he is proud to be Navy.  So I google John D Smith and I find that the real name is John D Smythe and is in the Marines.  So I call him on it and say why the different name and different branch of the military?

Now granted, I don't use my real name either and I have used the handle here Fingers since 2011. So I get that sh*t.

He replies just believe me OK sort of thing, but has changed his account name now to John D Smythe. Curious. People don't misspell their names, unless they are trying to be incognito like I am. Oh and the photos on the account are easily googled. He says he's in Afghanistan on a peace mission.


I google again and find that John D Smythe of the Marines, not the Navy as he said, is to be shipped to Japan WITH HIS FAMILY to be commander of something there.  So yeah I call him out on that too.  He again says, just believe me ok.  I'm like why, why does it even matter if I believe you as either way I don't want to converse with a married man.

He then sends me a couple of photos, again in uniform, easily googled, asking me what he needs to do for me to believe he is who he says.  I don't think there is anything except maybe facetime or something like that, but I'm over it.  He says again, just believe me ok?

At this point, I'm thinking this is so fake that I deleted the message.

So it's at this time that I ask you younger hipper peeps out there, am I being too paranoid or is this just normalcy on Instagram? I mean I get the going incognito thing as I do it but I wouldn't in a private message you know???  Need some advice my people!!!!

Now here is the very freakin gorgeous CbL Chillin in Paradise.  And this is when I was doing my own gel dip nails and I am VERY AWARE they look lumpy and thick.  I don't need the f*cking negative comments ok??

Ugh how gorgeous and freakin cool is this holo happiness??? Yes I miss this sh*t big time, but I'm way too lazy to polish and remove said polish in the same day.

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
