Pretty Pretty Periwinkle

Good Morning Lovlies!

I hope you are all doing wonderfully this morning!

Today I have a mani that I just LOVE!  I took the idea from the awesomely talented KonADDICT

I started with a 2 coat base of Sally Hansen Inst-Dri in Petal Pusher, on all fingers except my thumbs and ring fingers.

Then I painted 2 coats off China Glaze Secret Peri-winkle on my thumbs and ring fingers, as well as using it to add french tips to the other fingers.

Next, I stamped the fishnet pattern from M57 in white, just over the Secret Peri-winkle.
Then I stamped the vine-ish pattern on M36 in Black, along the smile line of the french nails.
On the thumbs and ring fingers I stamped the butterfly from M39 twice, in black.

Sadly this was the best pic, and my thumb is cut off!
I didn't realize I didn't have a great pic 'til the mani was off.
Sorry guys!


Well, that's all I have for you today, my lovely readers.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope your day is Phenomenal!

love this in the periwinkle color. you do such an awesome job using the konad. i guess i should practice more!

quick question. i have used the sally hansen insti-dry colors on my full nail and find that it chips right away. i like to use the polish for stamping but not so much on my overall nail because it just doesn't last. i notice you do use the polish on a full nail a lot. you must not have any problems with chipping?

Nihrida,
Thanks girl!

GildedAngel,
It was painful to remove! lol especially since I put this on the day before I did my Ocean City mani, so I only got to wear it a day! :(

Pullingstrings,
Why thanks hun!
as to your question, hmm, I think polishes tend to wear differently on acrylic nails due to the fact that they don't flex and bend like natural nails. So, I haven't experienced any chipping, well, ever, with any polish! Only tip wear! If you aren't already, try using a sticky base coat, that may help with adhesion issues!
Hope that helps!
