Don’t be a Flake Sugar Plum swathes

I love when nail polish titles come together to make a curt WordPress Title, it could also go the other way Sugar Plum Don’t be a flake.

I still have a few bottles of polish laying around that I have not used or swatched and seem to be getting to them slowly. I filed and glued my nails on at work and did the acrylic at home cause it stinks so bad.

Color Show Street Art swatches

Another boring day in work land….sigh work is boring right now, my social life is boring right now, and my love life is boring right now. This is pretty much how I am feeling right now:


My nail art today is me swatching these glitter polishes I had for over a year now and playing with stripping tape I have not touched in forever.

Still getting back into the swing of things.  The work scandal is over, but now everyone is wandering around like a chicken with their head cut off on what to do next.  As for personal life me and the ex are still trying to co-habitate and I am experiencing bouts of depression from time to time. I just have this huge sense of loneliness I don’t want to be in a relationship, but I do want someone there, its hard to explain and I hope it goes away. I feel this is just my not being single since 19 and not knowing how to be by myself.

Anywho, a friend of mine at work had me sign up for ipsy, which sends you free stuff every month with a $10 subscription. I have so far received eye-make up and hair stuff along with two nail polishes. The one I am showing now is from a company called Absolute New York. The color was really pretty, but drying was kind of chalky.

With my demotion I have all of this spare time I just finish my 5th book in 3 weeks and I painted my nails at work. This might be a new thing and I can get my challenges done in a more timely manner. I added a new glitter top coat I got from 5Below called I ❤ U.

Wedding Crasher over Romance

I’m still working on creating my neon nail art, but I have been so busy that I have not sat down and had time to dedicate myself to nail art. It’s great that I still have polishes I have not swatched yet. Today is Hard Candy wedding crasher, wedding crasher is a clear base with multi sized black and white hexagon glitter and shredded pink glitter pieces. I brought the look together over a pale pink from my The Color Workshop polishes., this color did not have a name so I named it romance.

I used more glitter on my right hand than my left. I kind of like that look better than the sparse glitter on my right.

Nuance Prickly Pear swatch

So the boy toy realized I was mad at him the other days so when he ran in to get cold medicine at the store he grabbed me a bottle of nail polish he saw me looking at last time we where there. It was by Salma Hayek called Nuance and it’s called Prickly Pear.

prickly pear– is a really pretty forest green shade. It looks similar to Calypso that I just picked up, but I believe Calypso has a more blue hue to it.

Sinful Colors Calypso, Endless Blue, and Midnight Blue

I’m in the middle of doing nail polish inventory and try to find out what colors I am lacking. Noticed I do not have that many blues and am lacking in the different shades of green department.  I went to Wal-Greens and picked up a few of the Sinful Colors polishes , one they are gorgeous two they are cheap.

calypso– is a beautiful dark green that I had to have as I currently do not own a shade that looks like it.

endless blue– is a bright gorgeous blue. I am still adjusting to the new camera and it was unable to capture its blueness.

midnight blue– is a metallic blue polish. I had to nab it to replace my Essie Aruba blue that is getting gunky
