*in my best <and loudest> Mommy Dearest voice*

….or frosts and shimmers for that matter. 

In my blog browsing I have seen the most beautiful swatches of the tidal wave of glitter polishes available these days.  BEAUTIFUL! And, I, like the rest of the nail polish masses, LOVE them. They lure you with their sparkle and dazzle. Whispering your name like an irresistible lover…

I am putting my foot down.

I don’t want to read any more blogs telling me the easy way to remove glitter polish is by soaking cotton pads, covering my beds with aluminum foil and…….. waiting. Yes, I have a problem with patience.  LOL.  I’m working on it. haha

Removing the Nicki Minaj collection glitter polish (OPI – “Metallic 4 Life”) was a small test of patience.  I can’t even imagine how long it would have taken without my reliable Automatic Nail Polish Remover!  Even with it’s superb and consistent results, it took too long for my taste.

SO…. even though the task is still much easier with my polish remover machine….. I’m back on my glitter hiatus. 

But I will never forsake my beloved dots.

    I too have a love/hate relationship with glitter. The only easy way to take of glitter is before it has a chance to dry. Put in on, admire it, take a few pictures and take it off. 🙂

    • but Rachel, where is the fun in that?!?!?! lol. glitter is so pretty.
      i definitely need to learn more patience. I have the same angst with tape manis too.

      i’m glad I still have flakies. ha ha

    I love dots too, but it is so hard doing my right hand since i am right handed. if it is not correct i get frustrated and keep redoing my polish until i get it right. due to my medication my hands shake sometimes too so sometimes it takes forever. i am going to try this one and see how i do since it is only 3 dots on on each hand.

    • I’m learning to accept my mistakes with my dots. I can always take them off…. later, when I’m re-doing my nails. lol. Dots are perfect for imperfection!
      I hate that the medication makes your hands shaky though!

      you must let me see your “3 dot” results!!! 🙂 they will be great!

    I have a question. How do you keep your nails from turning yellow from wearing polish all the time?

    • usually my best prevention is using a basecoat. i have had some polish that has stained my nails. i never pay an enormous amount of attention to that because i generally ALWAYS have polish on them. maybe I should care more… maybe one day.

    WHERE are you?!? No posts since the 7th….. :\

    • i know Joanna!! it’s TERRIBLE!!! I keep looking at the polish and paints and just can’t seem to come up with anything I like. So I just left the polish I had on. 😦 I am having a “polish block” crisis. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced this before.
      I think I’m going to check your blog and see if I can get inspired! 🙂

    Dots are awesome – plain and simple. Like the color combo too.
