Wildly Tame with Greys

China Glaze Recycle, Zoya Kelly, Konad m57

I really appreciate all of your comments on my last post (Going Nude), and I decided to take your advice and spice up my nails a little bit.  Polish Insomniac suggested doing a tone-on-tone Konad design, so since I've been so desperate to wear grey polish (it just feels so fall, doesn't it?), I chose to do a grey tone-on-tone design today.

I started with the miracle worker, Seche Rebuild, then applied two coats of China Glaze Recycle.  Once that had dried, I Konaded a lovely leopard pattern using Zoya Kelly and plate m57.  I topped everything with super-shiny Seche Vite.

I love it!!

It matches my blue leopard print shirt!!

Thanks for the inspiration, everyone.  I think that this is tame enough for teaching, but still fun.  I hope you are have been enjoying the extra-long weekend!  I love having this bonus day off!  My cold is starting to go away too (yippee!).  
Have a happy Labor Day!!

Glad you like it - and thanks for the inspiration!!! I slept for 12 hours last night (and a lot during the day yesterday too). All that sleeping really did help - I feel a lot better today :) Thanks!!
