Pink Wednesday in Shortie Town

Hello gentle readers.

You want to know what sucks big, fat, green donkey dicks about beautiful weather in January? You want to open your window and enjoy the fresh, clean, warm breeze and air out your acetone infested sanctuary and relax while you swatch flakies and listen to music. Until your prick-ass next door neighbour goes out on the balcony of a non fucking smoking condo and smokes. And blows it towards your unit and right into your sanctuary and it smells more like a casino than acetone. Or fresh, clean breezes.

So, I had a hissy fit. I went to slam my window shut and snapity-snap! Irreparable breaks. Two nails. Trashed. *sigh* Out came the file and down to nubbins went the rest of my nails.  I hate that guy. So. Much. If he wants to smoke, why don't he and his girlfriend move somewhere that smoking isn't prohibited. Yes, I grok that what people choose to do outside and in their own time is their own business. It is his right to smoke and destroy his lungs.

It is my right to get pissed to the gills when he fills my home with nasty, stinky, noxious smoke. Don't my rights matter? We moved into this condo specifically because these are non smoking units. Yet this is our second neighbour that thinks that it is perfectly okay to smoke outside their own unit and fill mine with their stank. And I am so. fucking. sick. of it. I can't wait until April. Just four months and we can get out of here! And I won't have to breathe smoke, get pissed, slam windows and break my nails.

Okay. Meltdown over.

Since it is Wednesday and since I no longer have any nails and since I am pissed and need to calm down before I go next door and rip his nails out, one by one with pliers, I decided to apply a soft, pale colour to my fresh, new nubbins. I chose Color Club Get a Clue from their Alter Ego Collection. This is a pretty, delicate lilac-y pink crelly. I applied three coats and topped it with Seche Vite.

I took these photos in late afternoon setting sun.




Color Club Get a Clue has a somewhat difficult formula. Not as snotty as Essie French Affair, which it strongly resembles, colour wise, but difficult enough. It is streaky and took a full three coats and Seche Vite to really smooth out and be fully opaque and lovely. I don't know what I am going to do with this stuff. If I'll keep it. Re home it. Lob it at my cigarette smoking neighbour's head. We'll see.

Do you own this polish? Is it as streaky for you as it is for me?

Thank you for popping in. Have a great evening and may your polish never bubble.

  1. I hope that you find polish application to be as soothing as I often do!

    That is a pretty pink...just the sort I typically prefer.

  2. Sorry to hear about your shitty day.  :(  I smoke on my balcony but it is a huge balcony, with separations between each apartment.  Most of the time none of my neighbors are out there.  If anyone ever told me that my smoking was going over to them, I would definitely stop.  
    I have to say that this pink is really pretty!!  I'm sorry to hear that it has a craptasitic streak issue.

  4. i love this type of pink. I'm sorry about your breakage. They still look lovely!.  I totally understand your pain too... neighbors can be so freaking difficult. Specially when they cant keep their kids from banging stuff around while im trying to sleep . :(

  5. The fact that you are courteous about it is huge. Really. I respect your right to choose to smoke and I am certainly not judging anyone  who does so. Especially where it is permitted. I just get frustrated by my neighbour's total disregard for the rules of the place. And I ca't vent at him, so... lol

    It is pretty, isn't it? And it is a bummer that it is streaky. Most Color Clubs aren't, so the fact that this one is was a bit of a surprise to me. :)

  6. I like this, too. I think that it is a refreshing little change. Especially on my shorties. :)

    Anytime you share a wall with someone else, it is difficult. We have been in this condo for three years and come April, we can finally, finally go look for a house. I. Can't. Wait!!! I need my own space back and not have people just eight inches from my living space. lol

    OK...I love that the name of this polish is Get A Clue because, really, that's what that guy next door needs: a clue.  I'm sorry your neighbor is a total douche bag and I hope you have better luck at your next place.  I chopped all my nails down to nubbins too because of a cleaning...incident.

  9. Ok, so I'm not the only one who throws tantrums only to have it backfire! I feel your pain, esp when your so excited for some 'fresh' air! Good luck finding a place you love:-)

  10. Sorry to hear about the smoking neighbor, I've got some of my own and it bugs the hell out of me.  You new nail length is really nice and that polish looks so fresh (bummer about the formula).   What with temps in the upper 70s I'm starting to want to wear spring polishes but I'm not done with all the rich holiday colors I bought!  Oh well.

    I live in a duplex and my neighbor is a douchebag too. He takes all the parking spots that are for the whole cul de sac with just his two cars. He has a driveway and refuses to use it and parks taking up 3 spots with his big ass truck. He is on disablility but yet he is up every morning at 6 am chopping wood in his garage which wakes me up and pisses me off completely. How can someone who does all his own yardwork and chops wood, be unable to work? I don't get it. He seems perfectly fine to me. Can't wait til September when we can move too. 
    I love this shade of pink on you!

  12. Pulling out his nails one by one had me rolling over in laughter! But i really like the pink shortie, super cute!

  13. Dude, I love your rants! You keep it real! And I have to say, your nubs look good on you! :)

  14. I'm not sure how you kept yourself calm. He made your house stink AND made you break TWO nails to the point where they all had to be nubbed...and he's NOT getting his nails ripped out one by one while choking on his cancer sticks?! I admire you, because I would have flipped my shit. On the bright side, this color looks great on you :)

  15. I m so over that guy and ready to get out of here. Please, April come quickly! lol I hate sharing a wall with another family and I can't wait to get into a single house. 

    I'm sorry about your nails. Seems to be going around. May your nails grow quickly. :D

  17. Yeah, my little shitfit bit me in the ass, fo shizz. lol 

    Come April, we will find another place. I will accept nothing else.

  18. I am all for freedom of personal choice and I don't judge those who choose to smoke. It's their body, their lungs, their choice. I just wish that those who exercise their choice to smoke would remember that those of us who don't would rather not have to breathe their smoke. And it would be nice if they didn't impost it upon us. 

    Thank you for your kind words about my nubbins. And I agree, that formula is a bummer. 

    It is so nice, here right now. I can't believe how warm it is. It's never this warm, this time of year up here. I am enjoying it and getting early Spring Fever. lol

  19. Ugh! inconsiderate neighbours are the worst. Your's is a true douchebag. At least my smokey neighbour behaves as far as parking is concerned. 

    Duplexes suck. That is what we have, here. Tow buildings with two units, each. Blech! lol

    That dude on disability, yet shops wood and so forth needs to be video'd on the down low and reported to the proper authorities. Just saying. ;)

  20. He would have had it coming, for certain! lol Yes, I am evil. 

    Thank you. :)

  21. Believe me, flipping my shit was definitely an option. But I don't think I would like jail all that much. lol 

    Thank you. I think that I really like it. :D

  24. No I do not own this frilly pink nonsense so I can't help you. But oh how it sucks that you broke your pretty nails! They will grow back I promise!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You crack me up. :D

    Thank you. I know that they will grow. I am just going to enjoy them as they do. Sometimes nubbins are kind of fun. Just about the time I am sick of them, I'll have my nails back, again. :D
