Monkey See Monkey Do Day!

It's Monday, you know this, right?
Ugh...Hopefully I'm asleep right now because as always, I have to be up at the buttcrack of dawn today.
But luckily it is going to be an epic nail mail day here, so I don't mind being up early, because I'll be stopping at the PO for one giant package and more to come later in the day. 
Have I mentioned I thoroughly hate my mail person? Pretty sure she hates us, too.
She tried delivering this monster package on Saturday (which is kind of a shock, because usually she can't be bothered to drive up our drive) - but I was in the shower and by the time my boyfriend realized it was the mail lady she was already leaving. He whistled out to her, and she looked right at him, and kept on going. What a scum, huh? I have a lot of problems with her laziness, and when it happens on a Saturday and I have to wait 2 extra days to get it because they're closed on Sunday, yeah, you aint messing with my polish without a complaint, lady.

Wow...so that happened.
And now this is....


This mani's inspiration came from Sophie at My Awesome Beauty. She has insanely great photography skills, and always does some spot on manicure goodness.


For this mani my base was Owls Night and Brit Invasion by Loreal - topped with  a no name pink from a brand called LDL and then I used China Glaze Passion and a thin paintbrush to line the sections out.




Hope you enjoyed this installment of Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday!
Check out the rest of the ladies:

  3. This is super pretty btw I'm loving the new layout! Hmmm lol it seems like you and your postal worker are combatants. I love mine he always leaves my packages nicely and if I wait for him he will go and get them especially for me. I'm sorry you are having problems with yours :(

    1. we've got the normal lady who sucks and then we have a once in awhile substitute mail guy who will drive up and leave our stuff on the car if we dont answer. i think she's just unfriendly and lazy.

  4. Fortunately my most frequent mail person find my nails cool LOL - and we live in the countryside, so it's safe to leave parcels if I'm not at home.

    1. I live in the country, too!
      Its crazy, its super safe here also but she makes all these excuses for why she cant leave my packages, it might rain, its too big for the box, blah blah.
      I left so many notes to her telling her to leave it at the box, just put it on the ground, and she hardly ever does this.
      I even have a stack of slips I leave signed at the box in case a package needs a signature (especially because my boyfriend receives a lot of expensive tattoo equipment too) but somehow we still have to pick up packages AT LEAST one or two times a week.

  6. i had problems with my mail people too! when he got a package he would stand at the bottom of the porch stairs and through the package up the the door and walk away on the grass. i saw him doing it a few times and my dad called the post office so how we HAS to get a signature for every package to ensure that he actually walks up the stairs

    1. No kidding. The ones inside the office aren't much better either. Though there are 2 gems at ours and I think the rest of them caught on that they suck in comparison because they've all recently become considerably nicer to us when we come in than they used to.

    2. Nothing like a little peer pressure to adjust an attitude. LOL

  8. This turned out really nice. At first I thought the darker/neutral color was just a single shade but I like that its two and they're just slightly different. It gives the whole mani that something extra. And I feel ya on the shitty postman, ours never comes at the same time of the day and sometimes he doesn't come at all! Or at least I suspect he doesn't, because we get a lot of mail and to get none more than once a month is suspicious. I think we're at the end of his route and he just gets tired of being in the heat. But damn, do your job!

    1. Thanks Jess!
      I know I just don't get it. We live in a totally rural area where they dont even have to get out of their damn car, so it baffles me that they've become sooo lazy they never even drive up and honk. only the one nice guy that works about once every three months does that. You'd think for what they get paid they'd be a little more motivated...I think she's not from the south. She's got a bad attitude like me.
