This is the mani I did using a few colours from the China Glaze On Safari collex that I picked up last week.
Started with a base of China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, two coats. This pix has SV.
I can't believe I have this colour on my nails! Of all the colours in the collection, I chose this one? I blame one of my nail blog friends and her love of fugly! I don't want to say who this is, but I'm sure she'll know I'm referencing her as its a little joke we have between us! I'm slowly turning to the 'fugly' side! And as not to insult her or anyone else who may like this polish colour, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and while this is what I'd consider *fugly*, I appreciate and respect that it may not necessarily be the opinion of others. (And to be honest, I don't even know if my nail friend is a fan of this colour. Maybe not? I'll have to wait and see for her comments if/when she posts about the collex.) Each to their own.....whatever floats your boat.....I know not every one's a fan of nail art and stamping as I've seen my nails out there posted on boards with less than favourable comments. Some blogger on QVC once linked one of my manis...and most of the comments were "not loving them/ not a fan/too busy/not for me" and the like...OK with me, everyone has their own likes and dislikes, their own style and opinion. And trust me, I encourage my nail friend's love of fugly, as she knows! I try to send her fuglies, er, I mean pretties....along with our swaps! lol! It's our running joke! (Well, my joke anyways!) And even a 'fugly' like this has a need to be in my stash as I can see it as a base for some fall and Halloween stamped mani's so I'm not disappointed I have it at all. Embracing all the fuglies!!!!!!
Stamped using m57 using black Konad special polish.
Filled in a few random spots using China Glaze Desert Sun. (Another 'fugly' but interestingly enough, I found myself liking this colour even more than some of the more traditional colours in the collex.)
Filled in a few more dots using China Glaze I Herd That. (Love this glitter!!)
Are you a fan of *fugly* colours? I'd love to know your thoughts! And nail friend, I hope I didn't offend you...it's not my intention at all. :)
