I’ve been sick for the past couple of days- cough, fever, achy body and generally just shuffling around miserable. I think I’ll spend the weekend in with a hot cup of tea.
I decided on a cheery fruit theme for today. It was my first time to try overlapping Konads, and I like the result.
First, I painted my nails with a bright white shimmer. Then I added one coat of China Glaze Yell-Oh, a yellow semi-creme with yellow glass flecks. I didn’t want to apply the 3-4 coats required for the Yell-oh to be opaque, so the bright white base coat helped there.
Next, fruits galore!
First, I stamped one fruit on each nail, but there was some empty space, and it seemed lonely. So I decided to double stamp and let some images sit on top of each other. But I wanted to make the overlapping images less opaque so the design wasn’t overwhelmed. To mix less opaque colors (check out the kiwi on my middle finger), combine the Konad polish with a regular polish and the resulting image will be lighter and more translucent.
Also, I let some of the design fade off the edge of the nail, like the lime on my index finger. I stuck on a couple of jewels and there you have it!
