NOTD: Moody Argyle & Flowers

Seriously, I'm having one of those times where no color, no design, no idea is satisfying enough for me. And I'm not sure if I love or hate todays manicure. I started with my own franken polish, which I made of black and white cream polishes, but the result was not grey. It was more of a really greyed out steel blue. I guess the black polish had too much blue pigmentation in it, and when I lightened it with white, it showed through.

Anyway, I decided to konad it, but wasn't sure what to do, so I took out the red special polish and plate m60 and stamped the argyle pattern in red. It looks like a reddish brown on my franken. Then I thought it was too dull, again, and stamped the nails with pastel pink special polish, and plate m50. Finally I placed pink rhinestones in the middle of the flowers.

IRL, the argyle looks more subtle, it shows up more on the pictures. And I have three flowers on my thumb, which I forgot to take a proper picture of.
That's the moody manicure for today. I guess I'm not taking my polish off until I have inspiration again!


  1. I love this mani; I need to try to layer stamps, it looks really pretty!

  2. Thank you =) I wasn't very pleased, I took it off =( But with other colors, it could work! I encourage you to try layering stamps =)

  3. Thank you, Evil Angel =) I was in a bad mood =)

  4. Love the argyle pattern and the colors you used. I don't care for the fower stamped on top. I think it's just a little too much. Prefer just the argyle. Your franken is really fantastic.
