Essie's I'm Addicted & Avon's Plum Illusion + Life Update

Y'all this week has been a crazy one! First my nails then if you're still around I'll tell you all about it. 

Today I wanted to give Essie's I'm Addicted another try cause it is such a gorgeous color. I'm going to call this a neon sky blue! I decided to pair it with Avon's crackle polish called Plum Illusion for two reasons; one get two unworns out of the way at one time and secondly because of a mani I seen over on Lizzy's blog!

I used two coats of I'm Addicted and I feel that gave me pretty good coverage. Clean up was easy too and did not seem to stain my fingers and they dry time on this was pretty good too, around five minutes. On thing I didn't really like about it was the application was a little streaky and I had some dragging of the polish issues. The second coat did even out the streaky from the first coat

Next I tried re-creating the mani I mentioned above using striping tape. I think it came out quite nice and I think it is such a unique way to use crackle polish!

Okay if you stuck around that must mean you are interested in hearing about my week, yay :)

On Tuesday afternoon I got a phone call about the job I applied to and it turned out that I got the job. I was really excited about it, but also really nervous. On Tuesday evening I stepped out on our back porch to talk with my Father in Law and when I went to go back inside my foot snagged a little piece of wood that was sticking up and I got a good sized splinter stuck in my foot so deep that it required a trip to the ER, a shot to numb my foot and a tetanus shot!! Wednesday I went to my job and pretty much hated every minute of it. The guys I had to work with were super nice, but it was so hot and dusty in there, by the end of the day my clothes felt like I had got caught in a rain shower, there was so much dust stuck to my sweaty face it felt like sandpaper, I was smothering from all the dust and physically ill from the heat. I came home in tears called the next day and told them I would not be back. Now before you judge me, I don't mind getting out and working or getting dirty while doing it, but if it's gonna make me physically ill I just don't think it is worth it. So now I am back on the hunt for something else in a better environment. Preferably retail cause I'm good at that.

I hope you all had a great week and hope you have an even better weekend :)

I'm going to spend my weekend (hopefully) getting some blog post together for next week!


  1. Cute mani!

    I'm sorry your job turned out not to be what you'd hoped. Sometimes it just happens that way though--something that makes you physically ill isn't worth it, IMO. It prevents you from living your life!

    1. Thanks Martha, I can see me doing this same mani with all my different crackles. Yeah, that's pretty much the way I feel about a job too, I think it should enhance your life, not drag you down.

  2. OMG *FLAILS* I feel inspirational. ^_^ LOL

    Dude, I'm with you. That sounds absolutely wretched; and at least you called to let them know. Last couple jobs I just left and didn't go back... >_> No sense making yourself sick for a paycheck. Unless you're signing up for clinical trials or something.

    1. LOL Yay!! :)

      OMG it was, I knew it would be different from what I was used too, but dang! Hopefully I can find something else :) I told the lady if they had an office position open up to keep me in mind.


I want to thank you so much for stopping by and taking time out of your day to read my blog, it really means a lot to me. I read each comment that is left for me.
