Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

I did a Konad last week and it was pretty wild and crazy. I started with Claire's Neon Burst and did three coats. Then I used a design from plate S06 with Konad Princess Gold Black polish. It's a bit smudgy and I didn't get the placement spot on, but I thought I'd share anyway. It's not always about perfection, right? :)

Truthfully, I had a really hard time making this one work! I ended up scrapping my first attempt when I was all done save for one nail. I thought that I would be able to do much, much better on my second attempt. Not so much!

It kind of reminds me of hallucinogenic smudgy tiger stripes.

Or hypnotic neon tribal shields.

I get really annoyed with certain full plate designs that don't really fit my big thumb nails. Sometimes I can double stamp them partially and make it work. With this one I couldn't see how to do that.

It was fun and a learning experience, so I'm totally glad I went for it. I'm trying to build up my Konad skills because I want to become an ex-pert, yo!

that's so cool! it makes your nails look concave or something :) sweet color too, maybe i'll get that from claire's next time i'm there.

its so cool i love it...

You placed them very well! I'm still practising the linement myself - for me doing free hand designs is much easier than grabbing a stamper. I was thinking about tiger stripes too when I first saw the preview pic of this in my subscriptions page. It does look like tiger stripes from distance! Pretty color combo :)

I love this! I haven't seen this stamp yet. It looks very hypnotic. I like the color and it looks lovely on you. Don't be so hard on yourself. Who is going around with a camera lens on your hand?

It reminds me of the 60's, I love it!

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you like it. :) Doo, it can be tricky lining them up, for sure. I've never really done free-hand art. Maybe sometime I'll have to give it a shot. I very much admire those who do it!

And thanks Lucy for reminding me to lighten up! I think I might have a wee bit of perfectionism in me and I try not to worry about it much but it's hard to find a balance, ya know? I want it to look really good but I also don't want to kill myself over it. lol

This is fun! That orange is awesome.
I'm finding it's best to just play with the Konad to get it right. I tried to do a mani that looked like a bandanna with the paisley image in white over Orly Star of Bombay. Big fail but necessary practice!

It is crazy but I like it :)

I think we are our own worst critics, everyone else will think it looks cool as all get out - I certainly do! I've never seen that plate stamped before, but it's perfect for this hot color - which I'm so glad I have! I think you did a great job!

nice op-are nails! :-) very cool, very original, I love it!

Thanks to everyone who commented! I so appreciate your support and kind comments. :D

i think it looks great!!

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
