Pretty and Polished - Tomboyish

Hey all,
How's your week going? I went on a bizarre field trip for work yesterday. A co-worker and I drove 45 minutes out of the city to a warehouse. Our mission was to open 300 assembled boxes, add a few items to the kits, and close them back up again. Sweet. And these weren't little boxes (there was a laundry hamper in there). Thankfully my co-worker and I were a good team and totally rocked it. It was an amazing work out. He laughed when I said we would feel it tomorrow, but first thing this morning he told me how sore he was. :P I was going to post last night but I was so drained I couldn't really do anything.

I recently acquired my first Pretty and Polished ...polish. (No better way to say that, sorry) I've had my eye on them for a while but after seeing some very compelling swatches on Lunar Lacquer I took the plunge. (check her out!) 
Pretty and Polished has colour changing polish! Effected by temperature! Just like a toothbrush I had as a child. Once it went from pink to purple you knew you had brushed your teeth long enough. My lord I loved that damn toothbrush. I was hoping I would love this polish even half as much. And I must say, I do! 
This is Tomboyish (with a healthy dose of splatter)

Tomboyish changes from a greyed green when cold to a greyed blue when warm.
With very fine blue iridescent sparkles throughout to give it depth.
As soon as I started painting this on, the colour changed. It was bizarre! And a bit distracting :P

I can't say enough how much I love this polish. It is SO COOL!
As soon as my topcoat dried I ran to the washroom
"Lucas! Wanna play with me in the sink??" He declined.
But they're so awesome in water! It changes so fast! 
And flicking water on it is super cool, you get spots!

I'm prone to chilly fingers but I still found the colour to be constantly changing.
Sometimes I had an amazing gradient going on. Sometimes random splotches, or a solid colour.
I found myself constantly checking to see what my nails were doing next.
Like a mood ring! I love mood rings so much. 

I recommend Pretty and Polished's colour changing polish for little and big girls alike.
It will enchant and entertain, leaving you enamoured.

I used Sally Hansen - Black Out and a juice box straw for the splatter.
My right hand has taken quite a beating this spring.

I really love just the black splatter. What do you think?
What do you think about colour changing polish?

So today at about 9:30 in the morning I was yelled at by my co-worker. She parked her bike in the loading bay, which can barely fit skids through it as it is. So I wheeled it over to her area. This is say, one of a handful of times I have had to do this. But this time she barrels over to me and yells (because this level was not at all what I'd call conversational volume) "Why do you have to put it in the worst possible spot?"
...wow. Ok.
So I calmly tell her she can't leave her bike in the loading bay since we have multiple deliveries each day and it's in the way.
She yells "Why can't you put in outside?"
You have got to be kidding me. So I match her volume and told her "YOU put it outside!"
She stormed away bike in tow.
I was so unbelievably angry. Your bike is not my responsibility.
You put up signs in the lunch room that tell people to put their dishes in the dishwasher because no one else will. But you want me to put YOUR bike outside. Outside where the bike rack is.
And not only that, but you raise your voice with me?!
I have a reputation for being incredibly easy to deal with. Easy going and mellow. Oh yes, and respectful!
There is no reason to ever raise your voice with me. I am not a child. Are you?

This edition of Muse-ic is dedicated to my co-worker
It came on my ipod while walking home and it REALLY hit home
I hope you enjoy!

I wonder what tomorrow will bring. Regardless, I'm ready for a fight.
Have a great night and an awesome manicure!


  1. Wow what a cool polish! I don't have any color changing polishes but I need some now, lol!

    1. Ha! I know, right? It's hard not to fall in love with something so fun!

  2. Dude! so cool. I need me one of these. (& I freaking love mood rings!)
    & just so you know, I love that you're a tough ass b***h with a gentle soul. Stay true to your convictions and just keep moving forward. (I totally love Cypress Hill/any music with bite for moments like that!)

    1. Let me know when you want to grab some, I want more too! Since we made our last purchase they've released 3 more colours! A pink/purple dude! Pink to freakin purple!!!

  3. Hooray! I've converted you! Lol. Thanks so much for the shout out. :)

    I love this mani! The first pic, with the gradient going on, makes me think of a Southern gothic scene. Where the splatter is trees and there's a swamp and mist in the background. Does that make sense? Anyway, so cool.

    (And I can totally relate to your Muse-ic. Passive-aggressive notes bring out that side in me, especially when the people composing them lack interpersonal skills.)

    1. I can totally see it! I love that visual. Very cool.

      If it wasn't for aggressive music I don't think I would have made it through my teen years. Usually it's punk rock though.

      I have seen the Pretty and Polished light! And life will never be the same again! :D
