Red Easter Eggs? This one is just not working out!


Sally Hansen Endless Claret and Konad m79
Hmm... one of my worst manis ever?  Lets just say I wouldn't wear this one out of the house.  This Konad plate ended up stamping a lot larger than I pictured it would.  The only one I actually like is my index finger, but in that case I got the lower rows of the design all over my skin since I had to adjust the stamp lower to fit the rose in.  If my nails were longer, this design would have fit fine and likely looked a lot nicer.  This would have looked nicer had I been stamping more carefully as well.  This has been a rough, exhausting week and all I want to do is take a nap!  I have a massive timeline mapped out for the evening and Saturday and Sunday, so no naptime for a while.  Hopefully next weekend I'll have some time to nap though :)

I like Endless Claret.  Kind of silly name, but the color is really rich.  It has a medium amount of microshimmer and is slightly darker than it appears in pictures.  It covered nearly opaque with one coat, but I applied two.  I photographed it with the back of the bottle because there was a big neon pink "50% OFF" sticker on the front that totally clashed with the red polish!

So what are the weekend plans?  Please share!!
I hope everyone has had a nice week!
