Well, I should be in bed, but I'm not, so I might as well do something constructive. Why am I awake at 1 am when I am perpetually sleep deprived during the week? Well, I'm a night owl ... I could be tired all day, yet as evening comes I find myself the most awake. I force myself to bed during the week ... but tomorrow I can sleep all day if I want. Although I do have some errands to run ... I am in need of a 3rd Helmer =)
Anyway, I really liked this mani, & combined with the purple tiger stripes that preceded it, I've renewed my love of Konad, which I'd been kind of neglecting with my current fascination with water marbling & freehand nail art.
I think most of the people around me are so used to my nails always being done that most manis go unremarked, but I actually got a lot of compliments on this. Base color is Orly Plum Noir, Konad done with Orly Snowcone & image plate m72:
I think I got some of the tips a little crooked, but this design is very forgiving. I'd never tried it before, didn't think it looked that interesting on the plate, but I will for sure use it again. I did get some residue from Snowcone when stamping, but Seche Vite really worked it's magic. Here's a before & after topcoat comparison ... just so you can see the difference, but as always if you want to see larger just click on them:
So if you try this color & run into this problem, don't worry. As long as it's just a thin film ,topcoat will totally take care of it.
Going to try & get into bed shortly here. I did manage to get on top of the questions coming through YT, but I'm still in a ridiculous hole where blog comments are concerned. Getting to them this weekend will depend on when I decide to fit in the assembly time, although if I remember correctly, they take less than an hour.
Thanks for reading =)
