Totally terrific Tuesday, Kitschies. When I got to work this morning, I could've sworn it was Monday because none of computers would come up. Apparently the Northeast Heights had a pretty good thunderstorm and it knocked our modem offline. Once we got that fixed, we were good to go. But then I was cursing our regular 8:00 patient because he wasn't there and it was already 8:15. Oh. Wait. It's only Tuesday. So, yeah. That's how the day started. Not to mention I didn't get as much sleep as I'd hoped because or smoke alarms went off 3 different times throughout the night. For no particular reason. I know they don't need batteries because we just changed them out in June. *sigh* Is a good, solid night of sleep too much to ask for?
Tonight I bring you a mani I wore a week or so ago. It feels a lot longer ago that just early last week, but that's about how my days go right now. Anyway, I was inspired by ANOTHER Bottle of Polish's Live and Black Velvet post, so I decided to give it a go for myself. I didn't want to completely replicate her nail art, so I went digging through my drawers and found a couple good colors.
Suds n Sass called Tattoo Shop. While it's a pretty color, I knew it wasn't going to be something I ever wore because it's a deep black base with purple and blue shimmer. Click on the above picture to fully appreciate the blurple shimmery goodness.
Lacquer Wear for Tips and Toes, I decide to get a little creative and do a little frankening. I don't really consider this a true franken because all I did was add a little of the Tattoo Shop eyeshadow in with a clear nail polish I don't use anymore. Either way, the end result was so great! Look at all that awesome shimmer! I'd call this a black jelly with purple and blue shimmer. Sorry the pic is so blurry, but it makes the shimmer really stand out. It's kinda subtle once applied, but I really dig those "hidden" nail colors. It's a little on the sheer side (probably could've added some more shadow), so I used this over one coat of SH Black Out (my go-to black creme). And to borrow the name of the eyeshadow I used to "create" this, I'm calling it Tattoo Shop. And a little more inspiration. This time from Libby's Pink Vanity and her I Couldn't Leave Well Enough Alone post.
Alrighty then. I'm off to watch some Grey's Anatomy. Not the new season. No. I'm not cool enough for *that*. LOL I'm a season behind because we didn't have a DVR this time last year. So, I'm recording the new season and I'll get all caught up after I finish all of season 6. Season 6?! How is that even possible?! I remember starting to watch Grey's when Nate was born (thanks to DVD box sets/Netflix). Can somebody slow time down...*just* a little? Really.
