Gold Glittery Leopard

Good Morning Lovlies!

I have many many things I would like to cover today.  But for those of you thinkin' "Just show us the nails already!" I'll do that first!  :)

This is the mani I am currently sporting.  I've got terrible tip wear on a few nails, but I just love this so much, I gotta leave it on, one more day!!!

I started this with 2 thin coats of Wet and Wild "Goldmine" from the Crazy Collection, and topped that with 2 coats of Sinful Colors "All About you", a gorgeous shimmery, glittery gold...jelly, for lack of a better description.  It's almost like a clear base but with very very fine gold shimmer dust and gold glitter.
I then turned to my favorite Konad plate in existence, M57, and stamped the leopard print using Special Polish in Black.  Since this looked slightly different in every light, here are 3 pics of this....I couldn't choose which I liked better!

This is Outside, but no sunlight

Inside, incandescent light

Inside, with flash

Not sure why, but the Konad Special Polish stained my cuticles in a few places!  Straight acetone wouldn't remove it!

Ok, next topic...
Thank you all so very much for the responses yesterday!  Someone very sweetly emailed me almost immediatly and offered to pick it up for me at her local Walgreens, so I will finally have my lemming!  But thank you all so so very much for your generosity!  I just LOVE you guys!
See, the closest Walgreens is over an hour away, but I've already gone there to look for "Show me the Way" and they didn't have it!  I also go to Walgreens every time we are out of town, but apparently, until now, I wasn't meant to have it!
I'm still seaching out that Hot Topic stamping kit though.  I've spent hours searching the web for possible places to buy it, but no luck.  My local Hot Topic hasn't had it since I began looking for it over 6 months ago.

Now, here's the polishes I picked up while in Maryland!

Milani "Fairytale" and "Whimsical"

Sinful Colors in "Dream on" and "HD Nails" and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in "Rockstar Pink"

1 last thing....YAY!  I've hit 82 Folowers!!!!
Thank you all so very much for thinking my blog is cool enough to Follow!!!
As is custom it seems, once I reach 100 followers I will have a giveaway!  So if your lurking, now is the time to hit "Follow" !  I just can't wait to give some fun stuff away for one of my awesome readers!

Well, That's all I have for you today.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Fantastic Day!

Isn't it awesome when you finally get your hands on a lemming? Gives one a feeling of accomplishment.

Love your Konad. It's so sassy!
Can't wait to see what you do with your Milanis.

I have been putting off this plate because I am afraid I will mess up the look on my nails. You did a fab job with it, your nails look gorgeous!!! I enjoy your blog. I am glad you found your lemmings (well, except that nail kit. Good luck!)

I just got M57 in the mail yesterday and as soon as I take off my current polish/stamp combo, I'm going for bright pink base and black leopard spots. I can't wait to try it out, I love all the designs on M57!

this konadicure is just awsome, perfect leopard to me<3

Lucy said...

This is just gorgeous! If I could do this I would wear it as long as I could. Your nails look beautiful. That Sinful Colors looks like Wild and Willing. I'll have to look and see if I have it. Glad someone got back to you fast. I have a Walgreens close by but you never know what they have. It gets so frustrating! Nice polishes you picked up. You got my favorite got my favorite Xtreme Color polish Rockstar Pink. That's the first polish that I picked up a backup for. You are just getting lots of followers. Congratulations.

Stiletto said...
