Hey There Polished People!
I had a job interview last week. It doesn’t sound like it’s exactly what I was looking for, nor does it sound like I was exactly what they were looking for but even still it was kinda nice to at least get an interview. I don’t know how many of you are currently looking for work, or have looking for work in the recent past, but all this business with online applications and stuff is just a bunch of garbage if you ask me. While I appreciate the convenience of being able to apply online and not having to drive all around town looking for “Now Hiring” signs and filling out paper applications everywhere, I really hate how you just like send an application or a resume/cover letter via email out into cyberspace and you never really know if anyone got it. Most jobs state “No Calls About This Job,” so you can’t even call anyone and see if they received your application. When I applied to jobs before, I still called places even if it was hard to figure out where I was supposed to call, and half of the time the people I talked to didn’t even know there was a job posting up and couldn’t tell me ANYTHING. When I finally did get a hold of someone who at least SHOULD know what was up, they were just like, “We’ll call you if we want an interview.” It was so frustrating. I know you’re not supposed to “judge a book by its cover” and all that business, but if a book walks into your office to turn in a resume and they’re dressed nice, look friendly and can speak politely it DOES give you a little more information and give that book an edge over the person.. er, book… that comes in wearing a ratty outfit, looks like they don’t give a care about their appearance and who just kinda grunts and throws down a mistake-laden, crumpled resume. Sometimes I wish they still accepted resumes in person and had you come in to fill out apps because at least then they’d see I at least LOOK like a capable human being. But whatever… it is what it is, right?
Coming back to the nails, I painted my nails red for my interview and then later that night I was just playing with my white and black Stripe Rite stripers (find them at Sally’s, or find every color of the rainbow at Big Daddy Beauty) while I was watching American Idol and this nail design is just something I ended up with. It’s a little weird, a little cool and.. uh.. just take a look.
Easy Striper Nail Art Mani
How To Get These Nails:
- Paint your nails with Essence Fame Fatal.
- Using a black striper just go crazy drawing little sunburst lines at one corner of your nail, outlines around the rest and a tiny little upside down V in the corner opposite the sunburst.
- Copy over the black lines with a white striper to add a highlight.
- Top off your nails with a coat of Jessica Brilliance.
- Show your friends! 🙂
So… what do you all think of these? They’re a little different but I ended up liking them. They look a little nail-arty (like the kind you’d get at a salon over some awful duck nail acrylic nails) but not too much. Let me know what you think! As always, thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
