I call this my bling finger....

If you know me well, you know that I am obsessed with nail polish, nail art - basically all things nails.  Some people think the nail art/nail polish craze is a new thing, but I think with Pinterest, and blogs people who have loved it for years are now just getting to show it off!  I ordered a fun Konad nail stamper and two plates (1, 2) and they came today.  Obviously I had to try them out.  I used white nail polish with the leopard stamp and it turned out way less than awesome. Leila was watching my every move and said "I know what you need - nail jewels." So I added one nail jewel. I liked the way it looked, but Leila asked me to add another, then another, then another.......now we're back to less than awesome.

Want to see my lame first attempt at nail art?  Here goes.....


Nail Fail.

Seriously, it was cute when it was just the white leopard print with one jewel.  Oh, well.  I can see lots of random nail art in my future.  The nail polish is OPI's Road House Blues and the white I used to stamp the leopard on is Zoya's Snow White. If you want some nail bling you can get it here and if you're interested in Konad Nail Stamping, check out some tutorials here!

Here's how my revised nails look now. A tad better. Color on the ring finger is OPI's Simmer & Shimmer if you're interested.


Have a great week, friends!

They didn't look all that bad - not a fail at all for your first attempt! I do like the revised version a lot though :)
