What a Happy Leopard!

So, I didn't think I would like this look when I was done, but I was SOOO wrong! I love this! And I could totally change it up any way I wanted, but I wanted to go with a sort of neutral nail. Not too wild. I've actually had a few people to ask me about how I did my nails, of course I told them about Konad! Oh, Konad where would I be without you?

So here's what I used: My base color was Maybelline Ultimate Wear Camel (53), Leopard spots were done with Konad plate M57 in Sinful Colors Black on Black, colored in the spots with Pure Ice Mint Dreams (which by the way reminds me of the inside of a seashell), and always used China Glaze Fast Foward Top Coat.

Peace and Sparkles!

Can it be so?

Why yes it can!

So, I wanted something fun to wear on my nails so I came up with this idea! I used China Glaze Recycle as the base color, the peace sign is done with Bundle Monster Plate BM07 in China Glaze For Audrey, and the glittery coat is Naturistics Super Shine in Daring (Not sure if they make this anymore).  Oh, and of course China Glaze Top Coat.

So, I know I've never talked about Bundle Monster Plates before and Konad stamping, but it's totally awesome. I haven't bought any of their polishes but I'm thinking about it.  I have only one Konad plate since they are kind of expensive, but Bundle Monster nail plates are a great alternative. They are pretty cheap too. Look them up on Amazon, that's where I bought mine!

I took these only a few minutes after I painted them, so I still needed to clean them up a little. The peace sign isn't the best, but oh well! I like it overall.  The only issue I have with the Bundle Monster plates are that the designs are a little too big for the nail or a little small, but I've heard with the new plates they have fixed this problem! I own the first set of plates, since then they have released the second set.
