Recycle Nails and a Crappy Job

Okay, sorry for the long time no post but I got a job and have been in orientation all freaking week. So im back now and I have quite a few things to catch you up on, such as the fact that I finally found a job. Its definately not glamorous and its definately not the hilton, but i need some type of income until I can find a better job. Well this job came with the biggest flaw ever that I almost quit on the spot about and the only way I can tell you what it is, is to tell you the way i was told...
So it goes
Boss: Wow your nails are really cute!
Me: Thanks I do them my self and they are all my real nails
Boss: Oh okay good because I would have felt bad if you just paid t get them done..
Me: Why?
Boss: Because you are not to allowed to wear nail polish on duty!
Me: Picking my jaw off the floor :(

Can you believe that, Im like its Starbucks not the Army.. SO i attend to find a new job real soon, one that lets me express myself in the form of my polish. But anyways if anyone flies into Tampa Airport come visit me and my boring nails lol..

SO part two of my news, Im officialy cutting my nails, I never wear my nails long and now that they are, it is so acquired. I mean I cant hold a pen right, i cant type right, its just a mess! So i think im going to go to a nail salon and have them cut and square them because im too nervous to do it.

So before I show the nails i wore that dreadful day, i want to explain the color. I wanted to use a polish I havent used before so i closed my eyes and stuck my hand into the box and picked out China Glaze's Recycle. I personally think it is a hideous color but to each its own, so I knew it would make a ugly tip color so i painted the whole nail this chalky gray. In order to distract from the color i did designs on every other nail. Anyways here was my nail for the day:

Sidenote: Sorry for the rambling post, forgive me its late and i had a loooooong day. I will be back sunday back and better than ever lol. Once again forgive my poor exhausted post and click on the pictures to get a better view.

BLAH! That sucks!! Actually, at my job, that was the rules at first.. But I have been there for just over five years now, and the whole painted nails thing is no longer an issue (maybe because my sister and I just kept coming to work with our nails painted) so finally they stopped saying anything about it and let it be. Maybe that could happen as well - I mean.. it is just nail polish! With good top coats, etc, there is next to no chipping, which would be their main concern.

Sorry for the novel!

And I am now following your blog :D

Kelie: Im pinching myself to see of im alive because that news floored me!

Danielle: You like this color? I was tempted to give it to my cousin who oodles at my collection like she is going to steal it.. im not a fan of it at all

Delaynee: I plan to rebel.. i going to push the limits with wearing sheer polishes and if they dont say anything then im going to start ring the neutrals out. One way or another im wearing polish! And thanks for following, hopefully you enjoy the crap i have to say (lol) :)

Kitty: So im glad you feel my pain.. but you worked there for 7 years geez i dont think i can make it a month lol

Pink: Thanks yeah if they ask me to trim my nails i wouldnt complain because im doing it anyways but no polish COME ON! who cruel can they be..

What the hell! I finally got to use that phrase in my comments! I love Whoopi Goldberg and she uses it all the time on The View, which I never miss. What does serving coffee have to do with nail polish? Any job in Starbucks, why would your nails be distracting. Even if you had to wear work appropriate colors would be better than nothing. That really sucks. It's a job and congrats on getting it. Hope you find a better one real soon.

That sucks.. I don't see the problem as long as it's not flaking all over the place which of course it's not!

Rules like that are rubbish. xx
