Tracylee used Gelish colors Passion (pink), Sleek White, Princess Tiara (lavender), Allure (gold), Seafoam (light green) and Ocean Wave (blue). Doesn’t this manicure just scream, “Take me seriously!”? I was thinking I wouldn’t have worn anything like this at my old job at Lehman Brothers. Then I thought that maybe I would have dared to do it, just once, to say “Fuck you!” to the place. I was already running around there wearing a too-sexy suit with no pantyhose (dress code violation!). Would the nails have been so much worse?
The cute manicure didn’t stop me from expressing myself in a not-cute way today. I visited a jewelry manufacturer who takes forever to get things done and never remembers my name or what work he is doing for me when I get to his place to pick my pieces up. He does solid work and is less expensive than some of my other U.S. manufacturers, so I’ve been tolerating his behavior. But today, he asked me to pay him in cash. I politely replied, “Are you fucking kidding me?! What the fuck!” and paid him by check. Swearing at someone I work with really brought me back to the good old days of my corporate life. What?! Did you think I only became a champion swearer after I started the blog? Bitches, I’ve had many years of practice.
