Now, on to today's mani!
I don't think I have told you all, but my Momma calls me Princess! It's been my nickname since I was tiny! I got it because I would never leave my feet where they were supposed to go in the stroller. I HAD to prop them up on the "lap" bar, for lack of a better word. So yeah, Princess!
Now, of course, when I saw there was a Konad plate with a crown, I just HAD to get it. Oddly though, I hadn't gotten around to using it yet. As soon as I saw the design, I knew how I wanted to use it. Sadly when I did this this past weekend, I LOVED the concept, but hated the color I picked out once it was on the nail! But, I'll show ya anyway!
I started out with 1 coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Whirlwind White.
Then I applied hole reinforcements that you use on notebook paper, halfway over the cuticle edge.
I then applied 2 coats of China Glaze "Rich & Famous" and peeled off the reinforcements.
Next I applied 2 coats of China Glaze "glacier" to the white moon area, and 2 coats of Sinful Colors "Pink 4 Ever" to the pink area.
I used Special Polish in Black and M40, and using the smaller end of the stamper, lined up, as best as possible, the crown so it rested above the moon.
"Rich & Famous" is very deceiving. It looks way lighter in the bottle.
I woulda LOVED this if the pink was either Magenta, or Pastel,
but that slightly coral color does nothing for me.
Oh well, I'll try it again, I have another idea now too!
Well, my wonderful readers, that's it for today!
I hope you have a fabulous day!
