Viva La Nails Review Week Day 3: Hot India

It's time for yet another Viva La Nails look!

Today I started with a base of 2 coats of Color Club "Warhol".

Then I broke out the Konad and used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in "Blazing Blue", a dark shimmery blue, to stamp the east Indian looking (to me at least) image from plate M64.  I LOVED that this resulted in a purplish look on the image!

Then I took the tiny dark blue sequins and applied them anywhere there was a dot on the Konad image, by just dotting on a touch of top coat and then placing the sequin right over that.  I then topped it all with a coat of Color Club Vivid Top Coat.  Sadly the topcoat and the sequins didn't play nice and it resulted in the color of the sequins being smudged.  Since I am out of Seche right now I can't try that and see how it works, so I'll just say to apply your top coat carefully, avoiding too many strokes, just as you would with a Konad image.
See how the sequins look lighter?  They should all be a gorgeous dark blue!  
Stupid topcoat!

Regardless of the topcoat issue I really liked this bright colorful design!


That's it for today my Lovelies!

Hope today is awesome!
