KOTD: Purples and M64

Hey all! Sorry for the delay. I did my nails on Monday (instead of the usual Sunday) and didn't have time to edit the pictures since I went to go see Alice in Wonderland. Amazing movie by the way! Anyways, before sharing my nails. I wanted to share a story.... (Or you can just scroll down to the pictures if you aren't interested. LOL!)

So I get home and I find my mother sitting in the backyard painting her toes. I recognized a couple of bottles of mine sitting on the table. Seems mom went "shopping" in my polish box while I was at school. I have no problem with this because that is mother. *Loves Mom*

So I come upstairs and start getting stuff ready to take pictures of my nails when I hear the 3rd worse sound in the world... I heard a nail polish bottle hit the floor and bounce like 6 times. Then I heard my mother curse and say every word in the book. Now, the funny thing is that my mother doesn't curse. She is so prim and proper. So I knew it was going to be bad. So I run downstairs and find a pink massacre all over the kitchen. There was pink on the cabinets. Pink on the floor. Pink on my mother. So I rushed over to help her clean it up before it dried on everything.

Turns out that my mother was walking across the kitchen with the bottle in her hand and it slipped out of her grip. The best part is that the pink massacre didn't happen because the bottle broke... no, no. She had the bottle open... A bad habit I'm guilty of doing as well (until recently).

So, the moral of the story:
1. Don't leave nail bottles opon when you aren't actively using them.
2. I need a new bottle of OPI's Got A Date To-Knight.

Moving on...

So I used Color Club's "Fashion Addict" as the base and Sally Hansen's "Deep Purple" on the accent nail. I then stamped using M64. For stamping I swapped the colors and used "Deep Purple" on all the fingers and "Fashion Addict" on the accent nail.

I tried my best to capture the insanity that is "Fashion Addict." Such a nice purple holo.

Although, I do have to say that I'm sad at how long this manicure lasted. I did this yesterday and already had a massive chip on my thumb. =(

Oh well, I'll be giving myself a birthday manicure tomorrow so no real harm done. =)

Oh noes! Hehe, I couldn't be mad at my mom either. Actually I'd be happy if she tried something other than clear!

Thank you!

Yeah, my mom isn't the biggest fan of my crazy colors. So she only goes digging in my polish box for the lightest pinks. You know, the ones that you have to put on 8 coats before it looks like you have something on. LOL!

When I drop a polish bottle I always have a mini anxiety attack! I haven't had one yet *knocks on wood*
