Hello lacquered lovelies! I just finished the mani I'm showing you today so I'm going to try not to talk much today since I'm late already! I have some weak rays of sunshine in the pictures of the finished look, but if it gets sunnier later I'll retake the pictures and add them in.
Last night, I was saying on twitter that I'm not particularly creative with this sort of visual thing and that I was having a hard time coming up with today's Konadicure. Katy, my Elizabeth's awesome sister (who will now be blogging for Elizabeth sometimes yay!) suggested purple as my base colour, which was a great idea! I really don't show or wear purple often enough. Given that my purple polishes have their own drawer, I'd say that's a shame! So I decided to go for an untried, Orly Velvet Rope. And can I just say that I have NO idea why I hadn't tried it before?
Okay. So Katy also suggested that I use M73, which I only got for the music notes, I think (so my nails could match my tattoo) but I've never properly used it! She suggested the stamp that kind of looks like a rock path or some kind of abstract thing... I have no idea. Anyway, I stamped that image using Nicole by OPI Positive Energy, one of my go-to stamping polishes when I don't want to use a special polish.
I like this, actually! Simple and fun! I messed my pinky up a bit and didn't check to make sure the image transferred fully, but live and learn, right?
And this is why Velvet Rope is glorious. Sorry about the lighting, I took this last night before I'd cleaned up my nails properly!
Alright! That's it from me today! One more day of these Konadicures to go! I hope you guys are enjoying these. It's hard for me to come up with them (due to the above stated lack of creativity) but I do enjoy the finished product... usually!
What do you lovelies think? Do you like this? What's your favourite non-special polish to use?
Have a lovely day and I hope to talk to some of you in the comments! :)
