Happy Friday everyone!!!! I love Fridays, I think they might be the best day of the week, the whole weekend is stretched out ahead of us.......
So yesterday I decided to do a tape mani. Well actually I wanted to do some stamping but I just couldn't stamp. I don't know why, first I was scraping off too much polish, then the image wouldn't transfer properly, then only bits of it came onto my nail. I got fed up and gave up so I thought I'd try something different. I'll come back to stamping another day when I have more time and patience. I think I need to only try using my Konad polishes, and this means I need to get some more of them when I go to the US next month.
OK, so what I did do was start with 2 coats of Zoya Kendall which is a pale lilac creme. I really like this, it's a great base colour. Then I applied some striping tape and used Crows Toes Merope over the top. Did it turn out OK? Well sort of. The lines are not as crisp as I would like and I think I kinda messed up in the ring finger, I know you are supposed to take the tape off when the polish is wet but I think I did that a little too early and that's why I got some blurred edges. Oh well, the overall effect was nice, I just need more practise.
Crows Toes Merope is part of the pleiades collection. As described by Crows Toes, i
Oh and because I have been asked by one of my lovely readers to show you more of Miagi here he is. He was lucky to be sent a toy in one of my birthday packages from my nail birthday group this morning, here he is sitting on his favourite blankets on top of the couch. He's there as I write this snoring away!
