Day two


Hello lacquered lovelies! I'm sorry today's post is late... for some reason, my laptop wouldn't connect to the internet, even though my phone was doing it just fine. Frustrating! I went to music bingo last night (seriously, so fun) and couldn't fall asleep for ages (anybody ever played Sally's Salon? Yeah, that was what kept me up) so I'm getting a late start already. Then I spent an hour and a half battling with the internet... after turning my laptop off and on for the millionth time, it suddenly worked. Technology, I will never understand you. 

Anyway, today I have the second day of my attempted Konad week. I'm actually posting these as I'm doing them for the rest of the week, since a fail resulted in me falling behind (I thought I'd be able to be a day ahead but no such luck!) so I'm actually sporting this currently and I don't want to remove it. This is one of my favourite manis I've ever done and it was super easy!

I used three OMGs and striped them: DV8, LOL and OMG. DV8 at the tips, OMG in the middle and LOL at the bottom (or... the place by my cuticle). Then I stamped using M57 again, because it has the full nail stamps and those are easiest for me to work with (except the fishnet stamp... damn you, fishnet stamp). Can I just say that the black special polish is a PITA to use? So messy! I did this as I was getting ready to go out the door to enjoy said bingo so my clean up isn't the greatest - apologies in advance. That's why there's only two pictures - the rest sucked. I may take more pictures later and add to this post, though, because this is cute!


Super close up to show the holo!

So yeah, that's pretty much it from me today. My nails were the life of the party last night, weren't they, friends who were there? Yeah, that's what I thought.

I want to try this with neons next, once I pick some.... but hopefully you won't be seeing anymore animal print for this week. I need to try and be more original LOL!

What do you lovelies think? Do you like this? Have you tried something similar? Maybe with neons? Would you wear this?

That's all! I hope you have a lovely day and I hope to talk to some of you in the comments!

  15. I love Yahoo games! So easy to spend hours playing. You should try Wet n Wild's black polish for stamping, it's only 99 cents!

  18. @Cris at Let them have Polish! You're too sweet, my love! The clean up took ages because the black made such a mess... do you have any tips to stop it from making my hands look dirty? Lol! <3

  19. @VERMILION ART Thank you so much! I think I need to try a Wet n Wild polish instead for stamping, the clean up was terrible! You're too sweet!

  20. @Melissa Birch The stripes were easy, promise! They aren't straight at all, but stamping over it hides that! I freehanded them but if you don't want to stamp over them, try using tape! Thanks for commenting!

  21. @Melinda Stella Lol thank you so much, that's so sweet! Sadly, not even half my manis turn out well, so we'd need a lot of time for me to do your nails LOL! I'm so glad you like it! Thank you for commenting!

  22. @Lisa Mc GIRL! Polish party! I'm down for that! <3

  23. @Adrianna It's so true! I've been sleepless many a night because of them lol! Do you mean Black Creme or whatever it's called? WnW can be a bit hard for me to get my hands on but I'm willing to try anything that doesn't involve as much of a nightmare clean up as the black special polish! Thanks for the rec! And thank you for commenting!
