Orly Artificial Sweetener

Once tomorrow is over my life can resume its normal existence. I have a pitiful confession to make. I have serious doctor/hospital phobia...anything medical related really..same goes for dentists. I have my yearly doctor appointment tomorrow, and for the past 3 months I have been dreading it. Now, it's the day before the appointment, and I'm numb. I get really bad panic attacks thinking about going to the doctor. I don't know where I got this from. I think it's the fear that a doctor will find something horribly wrong with me or in the past I had really cold insensitive doctors. Truth is the appointments have always been so not a big deal, but I still freak out?!? It's so stupid, but it's one of the reasons I've not been myself  this month. Yes, a single doctor's appointment will do that to me! I just want it to be over with so I can move on with my life. It's like doomsday. It's so irrational. I realize this, but it's one of those things I've keep private and don't tell anyone. It's out in the open now. I figure maybe sharing this fear will help a bit. Sorry for dumping that on here and thanks for listening!

So awkward transition to nail polish! Here is one from the Orly spring Cool Romance collection.

Artificial Sweetener



Artificial Sweetener is a soft dusty pink with subtle silvery shimmer.

I know this color maybe bland to some, but I love it. It's soft and delicate. I think it's a nice variation from the sheerer nude-pink colors. It's one of those colors I think would work well with most anything you'd wear. It's a very put-together color if that makes sense. I find myself reaching for this one as a palette cleanser too. It is a bit on the sheer side, but builds up nicely in 3 coats.

Send me good vibes for tomorrow please :(

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Maybe this doesn't work out exactly, but how about you ask the doctor to schedule the next appointment, but that they call you a week before to let you know? That way you don't get worked up for such a long time. Even though you probably know it yourself, it'll be just fine tomorrow love!


    That color is so cute and soft!

  3. I love pinks, and I know many nail polish addicts think we're fed up of pink and red, but I'd never have enough of pink, specially when they're as pretty as this one! Besides it really works well with your skin tone.
    Regarding the doctor, well, everybody has a "thing about something", try to be positive!

  5. What a *perfect* name for this pink--I love it! And ugh, I totally get what you're saying about physicals and doctors' visits. The trip itself isn't that big a deal, but I get this huge, stupid, looming fear and dread about them too. Fortunately, a ridiculously vast majority of the time there's not a thing in the world to have been so worried about. Hope your visit goes smoothly and painlessly so that you can get out from under the worry cloud!

  8. This is so pretty! And I hope your appointment goes without a hitch. Just think, once you get it out of the way you won't have to worry for a while again...just don't get sick! And you are not alone. I used to work at a docs office and many people are very similar to you. :)

  12. You're exactly right, worrying about the whole "what if" about the whole thing is ten times worse than the actual appointment. I just got back, and of course it was a breeze. I'm so irrational. Thank you for your well wishes!

  15. That's a good suggestion, but I've tried that before. It doesn't work sadly. I don't know what will make me shake my fear other than going to sit in the doctors office everyday and try to desensitize myself lol Thank you for your kind words. I just got back from the appt and it went fine.
