OPI - Hey! Get in Lime! w/ Konad

This manicure was totally inspired by this one over at The Nailphile.

I actually wore this last week, so I'm a little late with the pictures. It was a multi-step process, but not really that complicated. The base coat is 4 coats of OPI - Hey! Get in Lime! (it's pretty sheer and streaky) with black Konad special polish and the flowers from plate #M73 - which along with the flowers from M64 are my favorite patterns. After the stamping dried, I used Orly Liquid Vinyl to freehand the tips, at which point I decided it still needed something and used a silver nail art pen to line the edge of the tips. Seems like a lot of work when it's written out like that, but it sounds worse than it actually was.

I really need to use my actual camera to take pictures instead of my phone! Maybe someday.

Hope you have a great day!

NotD - OPI Girls Just Want To Play

Today's manicure is three coats of OPI Girls Just Want To Play, with Konad M64 stamping in Konad Special Polish in White. Top coat is Seche Vite. I'd recommend letting the stamps dry a bit before applying the top coat, as it's kinda hard to not smudge them.
