Before I get to my review of another FCC nail polish, I have to mention that FCC #39, the beautiful, glowing molten red I wore a couple of posts ago, stained my acrylics something fierce. The staining went so deep no amount of buffing would remove it. It's all good though, the staining forced me to do my fill, which I should have done a week ago.
I also want to say that FCC #39 removed quickly...topcoat and color came off with 1 swipe. The silver foil that was left behind came off with with a couple of more swipes...then surprise- red staining!
Anyway, I really wanted to try one of the blue FCCs, however, since I experienced staining with the red, I wasn't taking chances with blues. Since I just did my fill, I opted for a lighter color. Nothing new there...I tend to wear lighter colors on new acrylic, moving my way towards darks the closer I get to my fill.
FCC #34 is a silver champagne foil. It applied like a dream and was opaque in 2 coats. Like the red #39, #34 is a grain-ey type foil. After topcoat, it magically transformed into a smooth brushed metallic. Very pretty! I threw in the word champagne for the lack of a better description. This polish has a warm champagne gold involved in the formulation. I'm not sure if some of the foil particles flash soft gold, or it's in the base. Although not visible looking at the bottle color, the soft champagne gold is subtly noticeable on the nail, making the color a neutral.
Of course I have pictures...
I also photographed a card of spooky body tattoos that I'm going to put on my mani.
Very quickly, cause I have to go to work and this will def get scratched up; Make these bigger...they're wayyyy cool! Body tattoo stickers work on nails. Oh, the possibilities!

In non-nail news;
I believe I mentioned/alluded to, in a prior post, the prescribed Valium I'm taking to help with anxiety that's compromising my BP med therapy. It trips me out that I can take 60 to 80mg of pure liquid Morphine for pain management with no effects what-so-ever, and 1 10mg Valium makes me uncontrollably sleepy and drunk like.
Yesterday, while at my PC desk, my head fell forward onto the desk and I fell asleep on a ceramic coaster. My forehead sat on that coaster- for I don't know how long- until my husband came by and woke me up.
The imprint of the coaster stayed on my forehead overnight. Although I don't have a visible bruise, my forehead is freaking sore as heck. I can't even touch it it without experiencing pain like a severe bruise. WTF?
That's one thick, and hard coaster!!!
More news...Remember the waitress who I nicknamed "juicey" on this Blog? The one who caused mega drama? Well, she quit. I had to fight with the owner to NOT beg her to come back. He wanted that psycho to be head waitress. CYBI? My boss is, for some reason, drawn to people with emotional issues...and he invariably turns them into monsters that I have to deal with.
I am 100% sure this was a play for power on her part. Make herself non-expendable and quit so he would call her back and give her a position with power. I know this because she has a big mouth... she subtly broadcasted her intent on Facebook. Funny shit...she's still waiting for one of us to call (also on Facebook) Stupid girl.
Anyway! I'm going to stop this rambling and get to those body tattoos. Crossing my fingers they will not only work, but be visible.
