This is a blog mostly showing my nail polish skills (or lack-there-of on some days) as well as random makeup that I may have permission to post.

Candy Cane Nails!
I love the idea of candy cane designs! Let me just say, I tried this with reverse, red polish with white stamping stripes and it was a giant fail! Makes me wonder if zebras are white with black stripes! (I think so) Anyway, fun, festive little design...I used OPI "Kyoto Pearl" for the white base. It was 4 thin coats, but it dried really quickly and I wanted to make sure it was opaque. Also, it was like 1 in the morning, so I didn't have the best lighting, and thought, why not. Then in the morning, I did the stamping. This is the Konad (fauxnad) plate M65 and Konad special polish in red. I think it turned out pretty cute, and I like how the white is kind of silvery shimmer finish under it, kind of like some fancy candy canes. Hope you enjoy!
