NOTD - JUNGLE FEVER

These nails are throwing off a serious jungle vibe to me. The mix between the color combo's and the konad pattern I picked just look "jungley" (did I just make up a new word?) to me.


For the base color I used Icing - Akward (that's how they spelled it). I painted two coats of this color. I would have painted three if I was going to wear this color alone, but since I was topping it off, I left it at two coats. This is a nice dark green with yellowish and light greenish swirled through out.
Next, I painted a top coat of NYX - Lime Sparkle. Between the kind of yellow/light greenish tint in Akward and the yellowish/lime green glitter in Lime Sparkle, this was pretty as is. These two colors really complemented each other well.
However, I wanted to get some Konading in. I chose to use Misa - Ghetto Fabulous as my koni color once again and I picked the same zebra pattern I used on my TOTD.


I wanted to add this in as another Konad Tip - For first timers that aren't real sure about their stamping technique, or just don't want a lot of glaring mistakes, doing a stamp over a glitter base will hide any mistakes. Also, using a glitter top coat, that isn't really opaque, would be another good way to hide any little mistakes that might bother you to much.

Oh how sparkly! Love it. Your manicure is beautiful. How do you get everything so neat and clean around your cuticles? I spend forever trying to clean up all around my nails. I use the cotton wrapped orange stick with acetone polish remover. I think I've got it all and I don't. Frustrating. Your nails look nice and neat. Let me know please.

THANK YOU ALL!! I am behind on my blog today, so unless there is a question asked, I am just giving you all a big THANK YOU for all of your kind, nice words you left for me :)

LUCY - I get it so nice by not painting all the way up to the cuticle - lol! When I first started checking the nail polish blogs I wondered the same thing, then I realized, they weren't painting all the way to the cuticle, which is how I used to paint my nails. It took a little practice, but I am much happier with how they look.
