Life is back to normal in my little town, and we have that fancy electricity just like they do in the big city. Bossman had me go in an hour early today so we could catch up on what didn't get done yesterday. Since we were supposedly going to still have rolling blackouts, I wore way too many clothes. I fully expected it to be about 60 degrees in the office, but everything was normal.

Even though I didn't actually have to get up any earlier, I'm super tired. I'm not sure why going in at 8 instead of 9 made a difference, but it did. I've been fighting to keep my eyes open ever since I got home. I'm trying to think of a mani to do just to keep me awake, but so far I haven't come up with anything.

Last night I was very happy to take off that weird-ass heart mani, and this is what took its place.
OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, Julep Olivia, Ali Express AP 17 stamp
I stared at a whole lot of polish before deciding on this one. The base is OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, and I stamped using Julep Olivia and the Ali Express AP 17 plate.

I'm liking how this turned out, and I'm pretty pleased with those stamping plates. I have to say I do wish the designs were a smidge bigger. Getting full coverage is a challenge. I really have to stamp them in just the right spot, especially on my thumbs. The design is in a triangle shape, so it can be tricky.  I only had to restamp a couple, so it wasn't unbearable.
Now I'm off to watch The Blacklist. It's such a good show, and James Spader has never played a better character. IMHO, of course. But there is just something about that guy!
I know some of you ladies will agree with me on that.


  1. THE BLACK LIST! You must have recorded it! It is THE BEST SHOW ON TV! :) Love that Mani, too!!!

    1. SO great! I don't watch anything live anymore. Everything goes on the dvr, and certain shows I have to wait for Kev to get here so we can watch together.

  2. I love Thursdays now the backlist is back, that new show after then scandal and how to get away with murder...gurl oh love the mania too

  3. Great mani. Yes, there is something about James Spader.
