Suzi Says Feng Shui, I haven't forgotten you!

OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui

For this design, I used two coats of OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui as my base (yes, I am still obsessing over this shade).  Then I Konaded one of my favorite designs using OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.  I topped it all with NYC glitter, which nearly hid my Konad design.  In real life, the Konad design was less visible - the flash helped bring it out for this picture.  Lesson learned?  Quit while you're ahead!  I should have stopped before the glitter.  But hey, it's a manicure, and it's totally ok to mess up on nails (and on a lot of other things!).

I'm in the final stretches of this paper and SO. INSANELY. HAPPY.  (Or perhaps just insane.  This process has been... awful).  In a few months I'll look back on it and barely remember the pain, so that is the one really great thing I have to look forward to.  It will be wonderful to have my Master's degree and be finished with school FOREVER (well, maybe forever... actually, probably not forever, but a break will be nice).
Paper is due Friday.

Happy Monday everyone :)

ps: Wishing my good friend, Theresa, a very happy birthday!
Have a great one!!

This is beautiful! The blue's gorgeous and stamping is subtle and pretty. You should forgive the glitter for its sins. :D

Good luck with the paper, Brooke! You're almost there!

Good Luck Brooke!!!

I love SSFS :D I like the konad over it!

I love this shade:) I know how you feel about the konad-ing... I'm always afraid to add more to my nails. I messed up my pink and white stamping with glitter too!

Rhea said...

<3 your konads! One day, I'll try an OPI, lol!

Thank you so much Witoxicity!! I'm a huge fan of subtle Konad stamping :)

Thank you for the luck Linnie - I really appreciate it!

Polish Hoarder - it's so hard to stop - especially with glitter (glitter addicts anonymous anyone?). I have one mani (that shall remain forever not posted) that was a serious over-polishing victim. lol.

Thank you so much, Rhea!! I didn't buy my first real OPI until I was 19! lol. But before that, I found lots of them at yard sales for fifty cents to $1! (just the thought of that makes me want to go yard-saling!! lol).

That's gorgeous. And a ginormous YAY for your soon to be finished paper!

That is really pretty!

Is there a 12-step for glitter addiction??? See, this is why I always say, strive for expression, not perfection. LOL.
And Brooke, I know your paper is stressing you out right now, but somehow -- after you put the pain behind you -- I can still see a doctorate in your future. You're totally up to it.
p.s. the polishes I used have no brand names or color names, lol.
