Lucky 13 Lacquer: Bitchy Trampoline

*Purchased by Me*


Hi guys! Hope you're having a great week! I've been quite busy ... we got another kitten over the weekend! I have been asking for one for oh... about 2 years now, and he finally said yes! She's about 12-13 weeks, silvery black, and absolutely full of energy! I've posted a few photos of her on Instagram. We were a little worried about how Mr. Bloo would handle the new kitten since he's 13 years old, and hasn't been around another cat in 2 years. We couldn't do the recommended introduction because our house is too small to isolate her. There was some growling and hissing on his part the first day, but we're on the 3rd day, and he's starting to tolerate her better. They might not be best friends, but I think she'll be good for him.  Someone that he can show the ropes to!

I'm lucky that at my job I can wear whatever polish I want; it's the one benefit of only have 3 people in my office. The downside is that my boss thinks I'm insane with how much nail polish I own! It's kind of funny... when I worked in call centers, my nails were too short for me to use polish (it was when I was still biting them). Now that I've bitten by the nail polish bug, I have no one to talk to about it. Not being able to talk about polish with others was one reason that I started this blog!

Many jobs require work-appropriate polishes, and today, I've got one of my favorites for you!

Bitchy Trampoline from Lucky 13 Lacquer is This polish was inspired by Cassandra, a character from Doctor Who. She was the last "pure" human, as all other humans had either dramatically altered themselves or interbred with other intelligent species. Although, I'd have to say that Cassandra was pretty darn altered herself! After over 700 plastic surgeries, she was just a piece of skin with eyes and a mouth, stretched out on a frame, with her brain in a jar below her. She has to constantly be moisturized so she doesn't dry out. She's not a very nice "person" and is called a "bitchy trampoline" by another character.... leading us to this awesome name!

Bitchy Trampoline is camel colored, and has an absolute gorgeous golden shimmer. The polish is pretty sheer, but I was able to build it to opacity in just three coats.

Isn't that shimmer just divine?

Right now, Bitchy Trampoline is available in the "Last Chance" section of Lucky 13 Lacquer's site. For those who do would rather not have a polish named "Bitchy Trampoline" in their collection, you can also request for it to be labeled "Moisturize Me."

  7. I always love Doctor Who polishes! Cassandra is one of my fav silly villains; plus, any variety of gold is easy for me to justify! Good luck with your new kitten!
