Dear Nails, Please Grow Faster

My hair has grown enough that it is now refusing to cooperate. I had some real craziness going on today with my hair; so much so that L. was laughing at the state of my hair. It was like an out of control, curly, frizzy and lopsided pompadour. I just wish my nails grew as fast as my cray hair. :/ I really miss having longer nails to work with when I do stamping so I haven’t been playing with any of my plates for almost 2 weeks!!! The following is a mani that I did a while back but hadn’t gotten around to posting. I started with a couple of coats of Essence Black is Black.

Doesn’t this seriously look like patent leather? I think this is my favorite black nail polish.

I used plate BM 320 for this design along with Konad special polish in yellow.  I really wish that the yellow polish had been more opaque. Maybe it looks like that because it was stamped over black?

I’m not feeling particularly talky tonight so I’ll leave it at that. What do you think of this mani?

  1. That looks cool! I actually think the yellow looks pretty dang good for being over black. Although I do see a little unevenness… still pretty impressive over such a dark color. As per usual- we practically have twin nails again. I did this design with green sparkly polish and blue a little while back. Probably a little after you did tho since it was pre-manic-hacking. 🙂

    1. Hehe. I can't wait to see yours. I bet the color combo looks awesome. I am still not that happy with these konad polishes, though. Maybe they will look better when I try a different base color.

    1. Thank you! I think you're right that it looks good for being over such a dark intense color. Yes, you need some konad polishes!!! 🙂

  3. This stamping has a 3D quality to it, and it reminds me of a modern art type painting, which is really cool.

    My hair is annoying me. It's so effin' long that it just lies flat and limp and lifeless. I booked an appointment today to get it cut. I am literally walking up to my stylist (yes, she is MY stylist *haughty voice*) and saying "HELP ME!!! I hate it!!" It's getting caught in my seatbelt, in zippers, I roll over on it and it pis my head back. YUCK.

    Your nails are growing slow? Mine are growing too fast. Is it possible that the thumbs grow faster than the rest of the fingers?

    1. I notice that my thumbnails do grow faster than my other nails!!!

      How short are you planning to go with your hair? I just want it to grow enough that I can actually put it up in a pony tail or something. I can't even fix it in a short way anymore. I refuse to cut it, though, so I'm going to have to just deal with it.

      I totally see the 3d modern art type thing now! 🙂

  4. it really does, that is a fabulous black. and your stamping skills are rediculous!! : ( I am so frustrated with it right now, I have given up for a while.

  5. Wow, that's one shiny black polish! I don't think I own one at all… but I might. I'm just not sure since I never ever see it. I finally ordered this set of plates and now I'm just playing the waiting game for them to arrive!

    1. It's that shiny even without a top coat. I was going to get another bottle today but they were out at Ulta.

      I tried to order some Mash plates today because they have free shipping and I had a 20% off code but their system was not calculating the final price correctly so I emailed them to see if they could fix it. Hey, a couple dollars is a couple dollars! 🙂
