Models Own Dream Stream, and some casual misogyny


Models Own Dream Stream, three coats, no top coat. It's shiny and pearly and a stunning bright clean blue with turquoise undertones, which are a little more visible than they appear here. Dries super fast, applies very easily, and I love it. Big thumbs up. (It's also a near clone for my beloved car's paintwork, VW Mercato Blue, which always gives me a nerdy glow of satisfaction).








I bought this polish yesterday and applied it yesterday night, photographed this morning, up on the blog today. I don't usually operate on this sort of snappy turnaround but I really wanted to wear this as a pick-me-up. I was dashing back from swimming to head to the chemists because I had a really bad case of heartburn (I've still not quite worked out what I can eat that doesn't disagree with doing 50 tumble turns) and on my way there, passed a slighly lairy Irish pub. I got the usual 'hello darlin' hollers. When I ignored them (what else does one do?) this turned into 'you're a horrible piece of **** with a fat arse'. Romance isn't dead...

I'm not going to lose any sleep over it - particularly since I was wearing a new pair of size 26 jeans which I'd finally managed to shoe horn myself into, and had just swum 2k, which suggests they are probably empirically incorrect - but why on earth do some men think it's OK to say those kinds of things in public? what gives them the right?

Naturally as I continued on my way down the road I composed a witty response about the patriarchy and self ownership and so on and so forth but my on-the-spot response is always either a) pretend I can't hear them or b) flip them the bird. Neither of which goes very far to showing that I'm a confident, out and proud feminist who thinks that kind of behaviour is pathetic and funny in equal measure. Sigh.

Anyway, after that rant, happy Easter to you all!

Some men are idiots! They are just annoyed that they are not good enough for you :) Love the polish, not sure how i've not seen this before xx

Yup, what Lydia said. A friend of mine fired back one time 'I have standards and you haven't a snowflakes chance in hell of meeting them.'. As we walked on I almost choked trying to swallow my laughter. She's normally the quiet type!

This polish is stunning! And about creepy dudes, I feel like they creep on girls on purpose. They get a weird kick out of receiving a reaction from us. I usually ignore them myself because I don't want to satisfy their needs by responding in any way.

Sigh. Men are just dumb. It doesn't matter how smart, educated, or whatever they are... Deep down they're all just toddlers with an excess of testosterone. And like all toddlers, they just want attention, and don't really care how they get it.

You are, of course, all totally right - I know idiots like that just do it to get a rise. But it still annoys me! Usually I always have a comeback but in those situations I'm struck dumb by how totally rude they are, heh.


And thanks for the mani compliments, I really love this colour. I think blue might be my favourite...this week...
