I'm feeling very emotional and mushy today, and because I have a fierce and hardcore image to maintain, I'm going to blame it on the weather...dreary days, rain, & thunderstorms.
Anyway, for Readers who have not been with me for long...I don't have much of a "life" outside of my job. I'm a restaurant manager, working for a Greek who, in a nut-shell, cannot do anything by himself. His name is George, and he "leans" on me hard- for everything. To give you an example- When his wife is away on vacation with their kids, I have to call his house to wake him up for work. He knows nothing in regards to an alarm clock- how to turn it on, how to set it, how to snooze, how to turn it off. He's a "mamma's boy" who delegates everything that makes him impatient, and things he doesn't want to learn or deal with. Aside from his wife, I am the only one he trusts to get a job done and to make him look good.
I used to have a great life that included my own corset business, friends, clubbing, concerts, shopping and traveling. I've had none of that life for the last 4 years. I am married to my job, and it sucks. I'm not trying to whine and complain...these are just the facts, and it is what it is. Ideally, I'd rather be working at a job that makes me happy...something that allows for creativity and pays well. Sadly, New Jersey does not have much to offer job-wise for someone like me.
Having said all that, as pathetic as it sounds, this little Blog, and loose-knit community of nail polish lovers means the world to me. Honestly, I feel as though I've been in a vast ocean, no horizon in sight, and coming upon a buoy to hang on to.
This Blog is for me...I'm not looking for anything but to have a place for creativity and LOOK!- 297 souls are interested in what I do next! AMAZING!
Thank you ALL for keeping me company!!!
Now that I have that off my chest...although there is no art to show today, I can at least show you what I've had on my nails since Saturday. Savvy (Femme Couture), French Cafe. I would never have worn a nude a year ago, however, since Blogging, my color world has expanded beyond blacks, greys and vampies.
Thank you Girls!
I absolutely LOVE wearing nudes...especially after sporting a series of layered, multi-color manis.
Anyway, this is 3 coats. After the first coat I added polish thinner and some Wet N Wild topcoat because the formula on this one was stickey and gluey. It helped bunches!
I got that pretty ding on my index from opening a creamer for my coffee at work.
Oh, I almost forgot!
I have 25 new fauxnad plates coming from Chez-delaney and another 21 fauxnad plates from an Ebay seller.
I am also expecting my first BB Couture polishes from Overall Beauty in addition to my second order with Zoya!
