Why, my NOTD of course! I wanted to do some layering last night so I tried several different color combo's before I decided on the green one that I went with. I was also wanting something glittery, but I didn't want a full glitter polish because I didn't want the hassle of having to take it off, so that was another great reason for doing a layer mani.

For the base coat I went with one coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri - Lickety-Split Lime. Then I used two coats of NYX Girls - Yellow Glitter, this really added such a nice sparkle to it. After letting that dry I stamped the diagonal stripe pattern using Sally Hansen Insta Dri - Brisk Blue.

Adding the blue all over stamp really took away from the glaring, bright green color. Also, doing the stamp OVER the glitter really added dimension to my nails! It really looks like the green and glitter has some depth to it since the blue is a creme over the top with no glitter on it. IF you enlarge a couple of the single nail pics, you will see what I mean.



How cool does that look?

i for the life of me cannot make a seamless nail!! i tried konad m57, the fishnet one on my big toe and its a mess! I can only stamp the large patterns on nails that will fit the whole pattern =/ Do you know of any youtube vids or tutorials that show how to make a seamless konad stamp on a big toe?? its driving me nuts! lol

I love the combination of colors you came up with. Adding the glitter really made the whole Konie. Last night I was reading your post and couldn't understand what you'd done. I'd been up for 24 hours. My brain was fried. I finally got some sleep. Today I could figure out what you'd done. It's really a terrific. Your really talented. I think your nails are growing even faster. Woo Hoo, looking good! Are you going for Helen's look?
