Things You Shouldn't Do When You're Old Enough To Know Better...

There are certain things you shouldn't do when you're old enough to know better. For example: eating peanut M&Ms for breakfast...buying a car you can't afford then having to sell it because you can't afford it...and wearing ridiculously over-the-top manicures with too many design elements that would look silly on someone half your age.

And yet, I have done all three. In fact, I do two of them on a regular basis and would probably do the third again if it hadn't been so painful watching my beautiful car driving off into the sunset with someone who could afford it behind the wheel. Sigh.

So here is photographic evidence of too much colour, too many dots and bows, too much glitter, and just...too much!

This started off, innocently enough, with two coats of OPI's Dim Sum Plum from the Hong Kong collection. I then added some Konading from the M56 (the bows) and M79 (the dots) plates in Konad Special White Polish. And because I was already being so ridiculous, I added OPI Show It and Glow It from the Burlesque Collection to my ring finger for a blingy accent. Don't let these pictures fool you - the glitter is outrageously sparkly :)

Too much? Yes. Will that stop me doing something like this again? Nope. I might do my next mani over my peanut M&Ms at breakfast tomorrow :)
