THE OTHER EXTREME

Jeebus! Why am I so tired lately?? I know, I know...I shouldn't stay up so late. But since that's the norm, I don't get why I'm extra overtired. I should just be normal overtired. Even after sleeping in that extra hour in the morning, I still fell asleep after work.

And of course since I took that little snappy-nap after work, then I wasn't tired enough to go to bed early. And OMG, I did not sleep well at all!! I had some super weird-ass dreams about ants and murder that kept waking me up until I finally got up at 3:30 to try to snap out of it. Yup. Ants and murder. Cuz' that's a common thread for dreams, right?

I considered going back to bed for an extra hour again when the alarm went off but decided against it. I need to somehow get back to my "normal" schedule.  Now the goal is to stay awake during work, at lunchtime and after work. 

Luckily my after work snooze was a short nap. If I had stayed asleep longer, I might have been stuck with the traffic stopper mani for another day.  One day of that was plenty. I needed to give my eyes a break after looking at that shockfest for 24 hours.

So tonight when I woke up from my nap, I decided to go neutral. Like really neutral. 
Zoya Pixiedust Godiva, OPI Get in the Espresso Lane, Ninja Polish DRK-C stamp plate
It doesn't get much more opposite than this.  I have several of the textured polishes and never think to use them. This one is Zoya Pixiedust Godiva. I wanted to stamp over it with something subtle and my DRK-C stamp plate, and even though OPI Get in the Espresso Lane is actually a true dark brown, it stamped very muted over the texture. 

I rather like this; it's very soft looking. I considered topcoating over it but decided to leave it dull. I like when the light hits the little sparkles that are in the pixiedust polishes.

I'm kind of stumped for what I want to do next. I do have some swatching to catch up on so mabes I'll just end up leaving this one on for another day.

And hopefully tonight's dreams will include sunshine, unicorns and a gazillion dollars in my bank account.

    1. Cool...what are you wearing? I think your alarm clock chasing you has some definite subliminal meaning. Do you hate mornings? lol

    1. Everybody should have at least a couple textured polishes. They're nice for a change.
