NOTD: Zoya Tallulah

What a great blue. I think I failed in catching the flash of purple that Zoya Tallulah shows at some angles, most the time it is "just" blue, but knowing that hint of a duo-chrome is there makes me happy.  Kind of like wearing a vampy so dark anyone else thinks it's black, but I know better - I'm sure you guys know what I mean =)  Like having a little polish secret.  I've been having kind of a stressful week, in spite of trying to combat it with yoga, so I stamped a peace sign in China Glaze OMG with Bundle Monster plate bm07:

I wish I could tell you that it actually brought me peace.  But I'm still a bit on the down side.  Irritated, frustrated ... depressed?  Not quite...  Maybe it's my creativity bringing me down.  Did you know that writers have a higher then normal incidence of depression?  Too sensitive for our own good LOL.

(If you're interested to read a little more, click HERE to see Live to Write Another Day:  Writers, Depression, & Suicide, the article that clued me in to this a couple of months ago, written by Holly Lisle.  A link was included in one of her newsletters ... which always get me thinking, and which I've started rambling about over on Throughout Me.)

Anyway ... back on the polish track, I am overwhelmed with ideas, not to mention requests, but rather short on time.  I wanted to do a water marble tonight but I don't think I have time.  Apparently yesterday was Watermelon Day, and I've been wanting to do a design on that forever, not to mention had a request for it for months now, and I think I even have the polish picked out if they cooperate.  But getting organized for a video, not to mention the actual marbling process ... honestly, even to me it's sometimes daunting.  At the same time, even when it's late I have trouble wearing a completely unadorned mani, unless it's some kind of uber-fabulous color.

Now, if only all my problems were as relatively simple as choosing how much nail art I'm up to do LOL.  Thanks for reading.
