A Mess of Mermaids

Thank you all for your kinds words on my 100th post! This is why I continue to blog~ I previously nabbed the gorgeous pale green shimmer Nina Ultra Pro in Mermaid on sale at Sally's, I knew it had to go with the konad mermaid image on plate m34. I got this plate off eBay and it's a fake (well shit). The polish is uber sheer and I had to use four coats to get any sort of coverage. It also looks a little more yellow on the nail compared to the whisper mint green in the bottle.


I then stamped the mermaid image from the plate with special konad black polish, too bad I didn't wait for it to try and created a literal mess of mermaids. These were too adorable until my Godzilla brush from China Glaze Fast Forward and *hand* mutilated them. Guess I'll have to try this image again soon!

  1. "Damn you special black polish and your streaking abilities!" I've tried everything from waiting a full 15 minutes and even dunking my hand in ice water for a 15 secs to prevent streaks. I find the lightest touch and a good amount of TC will get you pretty good results. PS the base color is gorgeous.

  4. aww, too bad about the smudging :( I like the polish and the image though.

    When i use konad special polish in black to stamp, i don't normally add a topcoat because I don't want it to smudge lol its so thick it stays on and with some cuticle oil on top it looks shiny, not matte.

  5. I dig the base color/mermaid combo! I've never used the Konad black before though, so good to know about the streaking problem.

    Also, I tagged you for a blog award: http://melacine.blogspot.com/2011/01/ive-been-tagged.html

  6. I like the mermaid image! I only have a fairy. :P As for the smudging, I do get that a lot whenever I use the black Konad special polish. But I found using Sally Hansen Insta-Dry top coat works well with very minimum smudges over light brushed coat. :)
