Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I had a ridiculously long day at work and had no time to blog. And today, I've been full of anxiety attacks. I'll be honest: I have GAD (General Anxiety Disorder). This is really hard to deal with sometimes. Many days I'm fine, other days I'm a wreck. Today, I was a wreck. Why am I telling you this? I have absolutely no idea. Maybe it's to see if anyone else has this disorder. Maybe it's just to get it out in the air. I dunno. 

Morgan Taylor probably won't be happy with me starting the blog post like this, but that's just the way it has to be. I'm ending on some of my favorite polishes of the collection and that's Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My. It's a purple base with tons of gold, pink, blue glitters (actually I think I'm missing a few colors). In the promo I had no idea what to expect from this polish. Well, it's a really awesome glitter polish that is opaque in 2 thick coats. If you're going to get some of these, make sure to pick this one up. 

The second polish is To Rule, Or Not To Rule which is a garnet base with magenta glitter (both big and small). I can't really decide if this is more purple or pink. Either way, it's awesome. The application was the same as Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My and only needed 2 coats. Well, that's the collection. You basically need all of them.

You can find Morgan Taylor polishes at professional beauty stores (e.g. Cosmoprof) and salons nationwide for $8.50. I looked at their website and it seems like you can order directly from them, but I don't know if you have to be a professional or not to order. It's worth a shot though.

Those are beautiful! And your swatches make me want them even more..LOL. You have great nails! Also, I have an anxiety disorder as well, but mine's pretty specific & mostly causes me problems when I'm riding in cars with others & I can only drive to very few places. I take Clonopin any time we go anywhere that's traveling on the freeway & lately it's even traveling around here in town too. I can never go eat in any restaurant or go to a mall alone. The therapist also says I'm OCD, but mine is in my thought patterns. I constantly have the *what if's* LOL. I've finally learned to just deal with it, because it is what it is. So yeah I know what you're going through for sure. I hate being this way, but I've learned to live with it.

Oh, the "what if" problem. I have that so bad. I also have a very specific thing that triggers my anxiety and I'm glad I know what it is. I can try to deal with it if I know what's causing it. Friends keep asking me if I'm in therapy, but it's never helped and I've been to several therapists and they didn't help at.all. Thanks for leaving the comment and making me feel better and not alone. If you want to talk more, please e-mail me at rightonthenail at gmail dot com and we can discuss our woes :)
