I had such a rough day at work yesterday. I always have to manage a few tasks at one time and the busier I am, the more I thrive. But when I am not feeling well, I just end up a cranky mess. I worked my butt off all while wishing I was home because my throat hurts. How much of a baby can I be? I mean really! It is just a tiny sore throat and maybe a little earache. Waah! But for whatever reason as the day progressed I just found myself a bit more edgy. I calmed down talking to a good friend on the way home and then as I pull in the garage, there is my husband and kids getting in his car looking at me like I did something wrong! WTF? Well Ok I arrived home an hour later than normal and didn’t call. Um I was busy!!!! But whatevs, all I kept thinking was that I would get home and lay down because I was tired and feeling crappy and hey – I went car shopping the night before – don’t I deserve to relax to try to feel better? Apparently not because we were going out for dinner. UGH! But we did go to an amazing Cuban restaurant, so you would think I would be less cranky right? No I kept feeling it bubbling under the surface waiting to come out. So on the way home I figure we can stop at CVS just to see if they had the new metallic Milani’s. Maybe that would make me feel better? Retail therapy! Well they had them and no it didn’t make me feel better. (Did I mention I broke a nail today too?) But then I got home and remembered in the last few weeks China Glaze sent me a few polishes from their open stock for review or give-away. HELLO!!! Why haven’t I tried these yet? Well I swatched them last night.
I have to say that the colors they sent are all colors I actually have passed on. Nothing about them made me want to get them. But when I swatched them, I found that I really liked them all. Go figure! Today I am going to show two of them and I am going to save my favorite for tomorrow.
The first one is Poetic. This is a fine metallic light pink/copper color polish. It is a really pretty and subtle color, but it leaves polish lines, so I was a bit bummed by that. But not enough that I wouldn’t wear it anyway. Oh and ignore the bad cuticles – I told you I was feeling crappy and cranky! WAH!
