Good day, Kitschies! It's a beautiful day here in Central New Mexico. It's the first day in a while that I haven't frozen my bootie off as soon as I walked outside. Clear blue skies, a slight breeze and almost 40*. This is my kind of winter day. Not to mention I'm at home today. The MIL is sick and I have the boys. I took the boys to the mall to play at their indoor play area and they had a lot of fun. Of course I forgot my camera. So, now we're home with full bellies and the boys are going down for a nap. I would love to take a nap, too, but I have too much straightening up to do...not to mention I still need to take a shower. *sigh*
Last night I spent a bit at the computer and prepped some pics (finally). I have quite a few mani pics waiting in the wings and not very many recipes, so today I'm sharing a mani and the new love of my life: my Helmer.
After we got home from visiting my parents/family in Cali over Christmas, I didn't have time to do my nails before I went to work the next morning. That day I went to work with nekkid nails. *gasp* Patients even commented about that. I still didn't have time (or the energy) to do them that night, so before I went to work the next day, I dug out my striper brush, glitter striper and my dotting tool and threw this together.
Since I only have two pics of that "mani", I decided I'd share my Helmer (and my stash) with you. I don't usually like to share stash pics because I don't usually readily admit to how many polishes I have (read: how bad my addiction is). I know I don't have near as many as *some* people, but I know I have more than probably everybody I work with. Combined. LOL
red metal tool chest. It's bright red. It holds all of my polish (plus room for a BUNCH more). And I love it. So, wanna see what's inside?
Fifth drawer: Untrieds (in no particular grouping other than the Zoya in the front).
Notice I didn't include the fourth drawer? I just forgot to take a picture of it. It holds blacks, browns, silvers and golds. It's not very full. In fact, I moved about half of the untried drawer up in to the blacks drawer. The bottom drawer is full of polish remover, my Zoya Color Lock system an empty containers.
So, after you see this, do you think there's need for an intervention? And before you ask, there's about 185 polishes in those drawers (which means I have room for approximately 115 more bottles. Oooh...don't let the hubs see this - he'll cut up my debit card! LOL
