Konad fail?

Here's my latest mani, I'm not happy with it but I'm running out of polish, so it stayed.
Base colour is 3 coats Zoya Jo, I'm undecided on this one, the formula applied ok, but it took forever to dry, and today its still gummy and easily dentable. I stamped with Orly Au Champagne, which I of course love. It came out sheer and pearly, exactly the way I wanted. The design is from Konad plate M74, and was actually the reason I wanted this plate. The thin lines didn't transfer very well, but that could be due to a variety of things.
Overall I like the look, its subtle and pretty, but my nails are definitely too short for this design. Bleh. What do you guys think?

Nails of the day x 2

So I have been feeling super uninspired with my nail polish lately. My collection is tiny (comparatively)  and I've worn every colour/stamping combo i can think of without being tacky. BLeh!!!!!! Anyways here are my current nails
You can see a tiny bit of the holo sparkles
Super sparkly in real life.
For this I used Wet and Wild Metallica, topped with Nubar Hologram glitter. I stamped with Konad Special Black, and plate M65. This design gave me a whole wack of trouble, it took me about probably 25 tries to get all my nails done, and even then they are wonky. I don't know why.

Now here's a bonus picture. After years apart I recently reconnected with my life long best friend Nini, who I have known basically as long as I've been alive. So of course when she came to visit I had to pull out the nail polish bucket ( yes it's a bucket). Now your probably gonna be like what it's just another leopard Mani, but the best part of this pic (other than my lovely hand model) is the base colour. This is Color Club Electro Candy, and this is one of the few pics I've got where you can see the true colour, and I LOVE it, even tho I still kind of hate pink.

Now that Nini and I are back together so to speak, we are planning many more nail adventures together, including do it yourself acrylics, so stay tuned :P

Nails of the day / fav mani ever!!

I really think this is the best nail job I've ever done. I LOVE it, and have gotten so many compliments so far.

For this mani I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Black Platinum for the base colour, then stamped the fishnet design from Konad Plate M57 with Zoya Trixie. I stamped the flowers from plate M60 with Princess special white, and added some dollar store rhinestones. I literally can't take my eyes off my nails, I totally impressed myself, lol. So I hope you guys like it :D
