First Holiday and Finger Paints Swatch of 2013 & The Holiday Manicure That Never Was. Plus I meet the creepiest man yet!

Creepy man story!  I haven't had a good one in a while eh?  So a couple days ago I was looking for an external hard drive for my laptop.  I was going to get one that was made for just Mac.  Instead I got one that was made for Mac and Pc, but it had to be reformatted to use with Macs.  In case reformatting it was too hard, or a pain due to my poopy laptop I knew I had to keep the receipt, just in case I had to go back and exchange it for the Mac specific hard drive.  I'm out of the store 30 second when I realized I dropped the receipt.  Since I wasn't far I decided to retrace my steps.  While looking for it I thought I saw a guy looking at me, but I was paying more attention to finding the receipt.  When I was directly in front of the store, I feel someone behind me, directly behind me.  I turn around and the guy I thought may have been looking at me was.  "Hi" he said.  He was close enough that I could feel, and smell his breath.  At that point I went into the store to try and shake him off.  As I walked into the store I turned around to see if he was still there.  He was.  And he said "Don't walk away pretty lady".  It's safe to say I walked away as fast as I could.

Now let's talk about something else!  Polish!  So this year I wasn't really crazy about any holiday polishes.  But when I got a coupon from Sally's I decided to try some of Finger Paints Polish.  This is from their LE Enchanted Winter Holiday collection.  Not only is this my first Finger Paints of the year, but it is one of my first Finger Paints of EVER!  

This is called Snow Crystals.  It's a textured sparkly, silver polish, with fine glitter and small pieces of silver hex glitter. Went on in 2 easy coat.  Unlike a lot of textured polishes it doesn't look that different when you add top coat.  I think it's because it's already so sparkly to begin with. It really does remind me of sparkling snow.  I can honestly say that I wasn't really into textured polish, but Finger Paints has for sure made me change my mind! Get it now from Sally's before it's gone!  Finger Paints retails for $5.29 USD.

Outdoor - No topcoat
 Indoor - Topcoat

Finally after wearing these for 4 days I decided to add a little Holiday Cheer to them.  I wanted to try Candy Cane nails again.  So I got out some striping tape and red polish and did my thumb.  And when I looked at it the first thing that jumped into my head was... "Eh."  I felt nothing.  It wasn't horrible or anything I just wasn't loving it.  So I decided just to take the whole thing off. 

Is there any one else out there who was on the fence about textured polish? Or are you someone who wont finish a mani, if you're not feeling it?  And I don't think I need to ask about creepy men.  I think we can all wish they didn't exist.


  1. omg you are hilarious. and that polish is super pretty! I was pretty hyped on texture polishes at first, but they lost their appeal really quickly. now I use one occasionally as an accent nail, but I rarely will do a full textured mani. plus they're so hard to remove! xoxo

  2. I love some of the textured polishes. I am in love with Nicole OPI's A-Nise Treat because it looks like marcasites (which I love) and OPI Solitaire. Solitaire reminds me of snow or ice. I love that silver texture you have on by Finger Paints. I could definitely use that.
    Thank goodness you noticed the creep and got away fast. I was cringing and really creeped out when you said you could feel his breath. I was already running away in my mind.

  3. ugh, what a creepy dude! I'm glad you walked away from him! =:|
    I really like the textured trend, but only if there's shimmer or glitter in the polish, like in the one you showed! :)

  4. Whyyyy, creepy dudes, whyyyy??! Ugh. And yes, I'm a fence-sitter about textured polish. I just don't feel much for it, plus it's a huge pita, chips like crazy and snags on everything. Just me though. I think yours looks pretty. <3

  5. Wow, he sure was creepy :(
    I like the way this polish glistens - very beautiful!
    I wish you a Happy New Year!

  6. Nice and very helpful information i have got from your post. Even your whole blog is full of interesting information which is the great sign of a great blogger.

  7. Creepy man: no comment :-)
    I liked textured nail polishes from the moment that I first saw them! This one is really beautiful and I need something silver and something white for my textured collection! :-)
    I am one of those who won't finish the manicure if I'm not "feeling" it... and I can tell you more... it happened that I finished the manicure, made also some photos and then suddenly decided that there was something wrong with it and took it off... yes, these manicures had a really short life :-)

  8. This is so pretty, unlike creepy man. :-s

  9. Your story is kind of scary... I'm glad you were able to shake that guy off and get away.
    This is so sparkly and pretty! I personally adore texture polishes, and have really been loving all the choices this year. :)
    Happy New Year! Wishing you the best for 2014! <3
