Good Morning my Lovely readers!
I hope the day is going well for you so far!
Alittle later today I will post the swatches of my EvilShades order! they are pretty terrific! Please note that I will ALWAYS be 100% legit with you guys! It doesn't matter whether I am showing you something I was given, something a friend has asked me to show, or something I bought...If I like it I will say so, if I don't I will say that as well!
On the the FAIL!!!!!
I decided Sunday night that I wanted my Konadicure for the next few days to be BRIGHT! I had a design in my head, inspired yet again my the lovley and talented konADDICT , and started rummaging thru my polishes. I came out with Sinful Colors "Let's Talk", a massively gorgeous purple shimmer, I will probably buy 2 or 3 backups of this, I never wanna live in a world without this color! I also came out with China Glaze "Sexy in the City" a drop dead sexy teal with a lighter blue shimmer.
I attempted to take bottle pics and base pics btu my camera hates these colors. almost ALL of the pics came out looking liek I was wearing 2 blue polishes! seriously? what is that about?
After much fiddling with settings and trying to trick the camera into thinking it was actually purple and teal, I came out with a few pics that are close...but no cigar! So here ya go...
The weird incandescent light and the slight blur was the only way to get this even close!
So I started with 1 coat of Sinfuls "Let's Talk" Wow, a Sinful that a 1 coater?!?!?! AWESOME!
Then I made a diagonal stripe of the Sexy in the City. In retrospect I should have laid down a white stripe first, because it came out looking way more blue than it should have due to the base color. But once I realized this, I was too tired to fix it. I plan to use this combo again, So at least I know for next time!
Here's the base:
Not 100% accurate, but close!
Ok, next I took out the beloved M57, and stamped the Leopard Lace design on top of the stripe, in black.
Then I used the Zebra pattern to stamp on either side of the lace, also in black.
This was obviously too dark! Pretty, but I wanted the pattern to pop more! So, after seeing how dark it was, I did the other hand with Millennium instead of black.
That's better....but...not what I saw in my head. POO
The chrome gave me fits too! I think my Halogen table lamp was putting off too much heat!
This will definitely be attempted again, but with lighter colors!
That's all I have for you today my wonderful readers!
I hope you all have a fantastic day!
