Ummm....Nope! DO NOT WANT

This is one of those manis, that didn't turn out how I expected, but it actually looks better in the pics, lol. I received my set of new Bundle Monster plates a few days ago, and only had 1 night of play time so far. I saw what appeared to be peacock feathers, and since I'm kind of on a kick, I decided to use that image first :) Okay, well I started with a coat of black and a coat of Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal. I figured that all the colors in Turq. Opal, would resemble feathers better. I'm sure I would have liked this better, had I used different colors, and didn't eff up the design placement on my pinkie. It drove me crazy, lol




Then I used China Glaze Millenium and plate BM 212 for my design

    BTW the other day, I went to the store and found an old bag or nail polish for 6 dollars.. It had sally hansen nail growth polishes inside. Then I realized once I dug deeper) that there were two nail prisms in there!!!!

  15. I think it would have been better if the design was more sparse so the base color showed through more, or as another suggested above, if the colors had been reversed. It is still nice though!

  25. Thanks you guys! I just don't like when I envision something totally different :( But I think you guys were right, the image covered too much of my base.
