Stress stifling creativity/swatch- Nicole, I Stop For Nicole

Hi Kids*
Another post without nail art...
I've been under a tremendous amount of (job) stress this past week I'm very frustrated, disappointed and sad that I haven't been able to "get it together" and have something to show you.
I'm far from running out of ideas and inspiration...in fact, I have too many! The problem is- stress is invading my "creative space", making me very unfocused, indecisive and restless.

Anyway, this post is not without picture content- albeit a "rode hard and put away wet" mani-
Friday night, my Milani Neon, Pink Rocks! mani was ruined by the cash register change drawer. Instead of removing it, I swatched Nicole, I Stop For Nicole right over it. I was hoping to get up early enough on Saturday to stamp some Asian inspired fauxnad/Konad. ::sigh:: my job, I never get to leave it. Going to bed at 3:30am and getting up at 6:30am is my norm, however, one of my servers went alcoholic psycho, drunk calling and texting me in those 3 hours. The drama just wiped me out.

It's not very difficult for me to "buck-up" and I figured that I'd get to fauxnading tonight. Haha! I Stop For Nicole got ruined with my pants zipper...how nice! Nothing to do but laugh, really.
It's pretty beat up...
3 photos in my lightbox- not color accurate!


























ISFN is a vivid, rosey red/punch sheer with glass flecks that reflect punch and gold. In low light, it looks highly metallic. Next pic was an accidental shot. I was adjusting my lighting and my finger slipped.





















These are under my mani station light and are color accurate, although the intensity of this color got washed out.


























Monday is my day off...stay tuned for pictures of my Giveaway!

This looks awesome!  I hate it when zippers wreck your fresh mani.  *sigh*

Aww I hope you perk up soon!  

And even though you say the color isn't accurate in the photo, I think it's quite pretty :]

The color makes me think of candies. Reds always give me a pick me up. 

There must have been something in the air this week. My ideas have not been met with available time. I hope you have rejuvenating day off on Monday.  :*

Sorry to hear you're having a rough time! I hated ruining manis when I worked retail, it was horrible. At least it is a pretty color!

Very pretty shade on you.  You definitely need some sleep.  How can you go on like this day after day.  I hope things calm down at work.
