The Digit-al Dozen: Color Contrasts (day three)


What is sleep?

Sleep is that thing I used to do when I used to do nothing. I’d come home from work, put on pajamas, get caught up on my tv shows. Maybe sit out on the back patio and enjoy the last bit of the afternoon sun. But that was basically it. Come 10:30 or 11, I’d head to bed like a normal person. 

Fast forward to now: come home from work, put on pajamas, polish my nails for six hours. And that’s not even a typo. 

Don’t get me wrong: I looooooove doing my nails. I wouldn’t write in this blog if I didn’t. But I will admit to it being a skosh time consuming.  And I do hobbies like there’s a million dollar prize at the end of it:  full speed ahead, with all the parts and pieces, probably a pie chart thrown in for good measure. I am the best (and worst) at doing what I love. If I’d exert that much energy into other facets of my life, I would be having tea with the Queen of England right now, passing laws in Parliament or something. And I’m not even British. Or a politician, but that point is moot nowadays anyway.

So welcome to month number 18 of my life with no sleep. Someone’s got to do the nails and write a blog and govern Europe, so might as well be me. But because I am so tired, my posts are utter nonsense. The sleepy sillies are alive and well on this end, my friends.

It’s day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen color contrast manis, and I have no idea what the hell this is:


Red and green are opposites on the color wheel and therefore true contrasting colors, but try using red and green and not somehow accidentally make it look like Christmas. Nothing against Christmas, mind you, but I just want summer back. 

GREEN: Contrary Polish A Walk in the Park – an older polish in the stash – a green with red shimmer (clever!)

RED: KB Shimmer Ruby

ROSES: Moyra Vintage 05 stamping plate from Cosette Nail Shop

LEAVES: Uber Chic Beauty Lovely Leaves plate

Since I don’t love this mani, I’m just gonna go away until tomorrow. But don’t forget to click the button below so you can see other manis from other people who did such a better job than me. Waaaaah! Who stole my mojo?!

Later, loves!

  1. This is really pretty, especially the index & middle fingers. Red & green was a struggle for me too, a couple of months ago for the flag prompt of the 30 day challenge. You did a great job of not making it look Christmasy!
