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.
