I had planned that today's posted mani would be some funky cool 70's nails for the FB Adventures in Stamping challenge, which I planned on doing last night. But my normal 1.5 hour drive from cottage country turned into almost 3.5 hours because of an accident on the 401....and when I finally made it home, I had to make a salad and dessert for my daughters end of school class luncheon for today....by the time I had a chance to do my nails, it was well after midnight and while I could have easily done them time wise, the pounding headache I had most of the day was still present and I just wasn't in the mood to do my nails. I do plan on doing it as I already have the plates set aside....and hopefully it will turn out funky cool!.....but maybe later in the week....for now, thought I'd share a mani I did last week instead.
Started with a base of two coats of Jade holografico Mystic Gold, no topcoat. Couple different lighting options. Mystic Gold leaned more green on my skintone than told; the pix above is more accurate in colour (the pix below shows better holo though!)
Stamped using LS-20 with an accent of LS-19 using black Konad special polish.
Topped with SV; again, a couple different lighting options.
Here's a couple pix of the plates...notice my new hightech plate background? lol. Better than the mess of plates and polishes that were in previous pictures!
The Lesly series of plates are available from Stamping Nail Art on FB. Pictures of the rest of the 20 piece set, as well as a newly released 10 piece set, can be seen here. There's also a Pinterest site of mani's here!
Hope you had a fantastic weekend; thanks for looking!
****WARNING - SEXUALLY EXPLICIT IMAGES ON POST ****
The Day 5 mani is based upon Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I'm posting this warning at the top of the page because my mani is sexual in nature; therefore, if this type of mani/post offends you, or you are on your computer and there are minors present, you have warning before the post is clicked.
This is what I came up with!
Started out with a base of assorted greys; all are two coats and topped with SV. Starting at thumb and going clockwise, the polishes are Sinful Colors Cool Gray, Kit Grey Pearling, Barry M Grey, Dance Legend #1, and Ulta Concrete Evidence.
Stamped with black Konad special polish using MJ II (ring), LS-03 (index) and Handy 36 (thumb, middle and pinky). MJ III was used for the chains on the index and thumb.
Added a few random dots using red Konad special polish throughout; the gray on the middle is Sinful Colors Cool Gray.
Topped with SV.
I'm glad that the book challenge gave me a *valid* reason to use the Handy 36 plate as these images are ones I'd usually put on my nails otherwise! lol!
Here's the other ladies Day 5 mani's.....so much creativity!!!
I discovered Konad about a few years ago and it has captivated me ever since!
I have a large polish and plate stash that keeps on growing! The biggest challenge I have lately is...what polish with what plate!
I would be interested in swapping for polishes, image plates, etc. particularly anything I cannot obtain in Canada ...I'm trying to keep my wish list updated but it is so hard with so many new and exciting polishes being released all the time!
