I hope you’re all having a nice and long Memorial Day weekend if you’re in the states. Unfortunately, I am working today so I will live vicariously through you if you’re enjoying a three day weekend. Work was actually really busy today and I had quite a few customers tell me that they were sorry that I had to work on Memorial Day. Well, I wish I could have told those customers to eff off because it is because of customers like them who continue to call us to bitch and moan on a holiday that we have to stay open. If they stopped calling on holidays, maybe we could be closed. Anyway, that’s just me being bitter about having to work when most people were out relaxing at a bbq or at the beach. I didn’t really have any time to do a mani to celebrate Memorial Day but I still stuck to a red white and blue theme! I decided to try a polish that Amy from The Fancy Side sent me last week. She is such a sweetheart and surprised me with this polish and another Dollish Polish baby that was on my wishlist. Thank you so much, Amy! You may remember my first post involving this collection and what a polish boner I got when I heard about it. You can see my original post of It’s A Me, Mario here. I just love Mario Bros. to bits so how couldn’t I love this whole collection??? Dollish Polish Toad-ally Awesome is, well, totally awesome!
I started with two perfect coats of LVX Phantom which is part of the LVX Summer 2013 Collection that I received for review. (You can see my review here.) I have mentioned it before, and I will say it again: this polish is white perfection!
I love this polish so hard. I only wish it had been easier to get the glitter bits out because I basically had to fish for the larger, white, blue and red pieces because otherwise all I was getting was the tiny blue and gold glitter. I did shake it up well and also let it sit upside down for a while, but it didn’t help much. Ultimately, I don’t have a problem with fishing for the larger glitter since this seems to happen a lot with glitter bombs.
Since it is Memorial Day here in the states, I just wanted to say a couple of things. I know we are very divided when it comes to where our troops should be and our involvement in world affairs. No matter what you may think about all of this, there is nothing more despicable in my mind than to not support our troops who come back home. After working for many years at a job where I worked with a lot of vets who were trying to get their medical needs covered, the VA seems to be a total joke. But then again, that can be said about our whole medical system as a whole. I just want to thank all those brave men and women who are fighting for us now and who have fought in the past: thank you for your service and sacrifices. Ok, off my soapbox!
Did you get a chance to create any patriotic manis? Did you do anything fun today? Let me know what you think about this fun polish; are you also a Mario Bros. fanatic? Thanks for stopping by today!
