I can't believe how much dust was on my nadding plates! It's been too long, but I'm back. Business has slowed down at the restaurant enough for me to exit "machine mode" and enter an artsy state of mind. Yay!
Mani is 2 coats Ruby Kisses Neon in Yellow Bikini. Plates used- Konad m66 and Bundle Monster bm04. With the exception of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Orange You Fast! and Color Club Ms Socialite all stamping polishes are frankens, and topped with 1 coat Seche. Although this is not one of my best nadded manis, I really wanted something ultra colorful, quick and easy.
Please excuse the condition of my hands. My new BP meds are making my skin peel. I slathered on a thick coat of Mango Mend over damp hands for relief. Oily-ish hands and taking pictures at my tree covered in ivy = speckley fallout and a cobweb that I could not get off.
Also, pay no attention to the nasty, dirty old cycle grip I'm using as a prop/grip in some pictures. My aging fingers are twisting. In order for me to get them straight, I have to manually adjust them and the texture of the grip helps keep them in place.
Pictures taken under cloudy skies.
I'm still not feeling "myself"...trying to get to the bottom of some health issues and job stress is still in the red zone.
You all know about my health stuff, but I've kept work stuff to myself cause it's usually boring if one is not in the business. This time I'm going to make an exception...only because it's "juicey".
One of my super ambitious servers is doing all she can to take my job. Unfortunate for her, she actually told someone "I'll do whatever it takes to get her out and then take her place." Mistake #1. She also stalks the owner's house, riding by it up to half a dozen times a day. Mistake #2. Mistake #3, and this is the biggest, she has an attribute inherent to her personality that the owner despises in his employees- the need to dominate.
Her mother works as a secretary at my husbands job, and I hired her as a favor. She's a great server, so I don't have regrets and I don't hate her. I have to laugh...Her mother started screwing the Director in order to oust another secretary and to make $1 more an hour than the highest paid secretary.
How's that for the apple not falling far from the tree?
I have no fear about losing my job. After 3 years as manager, the owner, George, gave me a key to the office yesterday. While it may not sound like a big deal, it is. Not being family, I am the only "outsider" person in charge at the restaurant. Even the 3rd owner, who *is* family, does not have a key.
