When The Cat Is Away...

...the mice are going crazy. So, my boss is still on holiday and I'm using this opportunity to rock some crazy manicures : ) Today I'll show you one of them. But I warn you in advance: you better sit down before clicking the link.

This manicure is probably the most kitschy one I EVER had. And hopefully, the only one I'll hide under the cut.







Still alive? =) Then I'll tell you how I made it. The base colour is provided by one grandpa polish of my stash, Lady Rose Latino #592, an orange neon which I bought ages ago. It's my one and only orange, and not the best one: it takes forever to dry and I think it stains a bit. The pattern is from the Konad plate m57. 

Since it's the first and probably the last time I'm wearing this polish on my hand nails (I like it for pedicure though!), I decided to give the tributes and to post the swatches. Here we go:





If you survived this disastrous kitsch, I'm looking forward to your comments! Any kind of, including "omg", "wtf", "holy whatever" etc. : )

  2. Hi Ritterbraten!
    Ich hoffe es ist nicht schlimm, wenn ich auf deutsch antworte, aber my english is not very good. Ich finde deine Maniküre wirklich sehr schön, sie passt perfekt auf deine Nägel. Allein der Rotton ist schon traumhaft.
    Ich würde gerne mehr solcher gewagten Designs von dir sehen, sie stehen dir wirklich.

  6. Здорово! Ярко и очень сильно привлекает внимание, а с твоими ногтями это можно себе позволить.
    А вот отдельно оранжевый лак меня подбешивает, хотя выглядит-то красиво, тут не поспоришь )) это влияние этого лета и засилье оранжевого.

    1. Спасибо :) У меня это единственный оранжевый, и единственный неон, так что для меня это экзотика, потому и захотелось чего-то подобного, необычного :)

  8. You know what i expected by your description? Gold foil with gold and silver hexa glitter, topped with holo glitter, topped with gold konad and an extra gold glitter for a good measure! xD I don't like neon polish, but this orange looks awesome! I'd skip the pattern though. or change it. :D Still ... *sigh* your nails are gorgeous.

    1. Hahahhaa!! Thank you! That was actually my idea, but then I thought that gold Konad on gold polish won't make much sense ;P Kidding of course.. :) I neither like neons, and as for the pattern, I just never made use of it before and thought "why not"..

    1. Thanks ^^ My boss is not any scary, he never even commented on how my nails look etc. It's just the way he looks at them when I'm wearing blue or green... indescribable :) All the sorrow of the world is in his look then.
