Shattered Blue Glitter

Good Morning Lovely Ladies!!!

This morning I have my current mani for ya!
There must be something in the air, because usually I wear my konadicures for days and never get tired of them.  But it seems like I'm doing them, loving them, and by the end of the day I'm ready for something new!  It's bad cause it's severely cutting into my already inadequate sleep!  So this will stay on until I get off work, then it will be taken off and I'll try out an idea I've been toying with.  My husband is staying at the shop late so he can finish up some mods he had to make to the 64 fairlane so we can take it to the cruise-in in Ocean City MD in October!  So that gives me play time!!!

So anyway, here is what the base looked like yesterday
 
This is 2 coats of China Glaze "Liquid Leather" topped with 1 coat of Pure Ice "Strapless".
I LOVE glitters for their durability, but checkout my thumb!  I have never ever had a polish wear on me that fast! so odd.  
I wanted to try out that new China Glaze polish I got to see if it worked with Konad like I thought it would.  Sure enough, it worked GREAT!  just had to work in double time, since it was drying way way fast!  The polish I used was China Glaze "Millennium" from their Chrome and Glitter collect that Sally's is carrying.  and I used M64 for the stamp.  I'm gonna show you both hands since the right actually came out pretty good, and I rotated the stamp and used it upside down from the way I used it on my left.  Definitely gives it two different looks.
 

I took the base color pic out in the sun, but the finished mani pics were in artificial light since it was way dark when I got done.
I hope all you ladies have a fantastic day!
{{{Hugs}}}

Great 2 looks! I love how the sparkle comes through the 'windows' I like the left hand stamp better though :)

Thanks! yeah, I can't decide which way I like it better!

I think I like it with the thicker silver part of the stamp at the cuticle area the best. Looks awesome - as my son would say :)
