NOTD: Butterflies, again

Yesterday I found a silver chrome polish, which made me really happy. I can stamp with it, and I thought it was impossible with Turkish brands. Although it's not as opaque as Romantiques or Khromes, it's a good substitute, and clearly visible on the nail. Anyway, I used the silver as a base, it was opaque in one coat, but I did two. Then I stamped using image plate m41 and special polish in black. The topcoat is bubbly, I know, it indicates that I need a new one =) I mattified the whole thing using China Glaze Matte Magic. There is a rhinestone sitting on my middle nail, because I nicked it right after I finished putting the topcoat on.




If you can feel the uncreativity these days, it's normal =) I sleep through the day and study through the night, I'm moody, bemused, cranky the whole time. I hope it's over soon, and I hope I'll survive the stress!
Oh, I keep forgetting about my Blog Award. Shame on me. I'll make up for it, I promise =(

  1. I like the ambiance of the first picture. It seems so quiet and sweet. <3 (And that ring is beautiful, I have a little weakness for wide and a tad masculine silver ring!). You make me long my 2 konad plates.

    I checked all of them before purchasing mines but would have never thought the butterfly on the 41 was so pretty! So many ideas cross my mind with that design. You're evil desguised in sweetness, aren't you? ;)

  2. Thank you Pascale =)
    Nathalie, Thank you =) I actually used a tripod to take that one =D The ring is my engagement ring of 4,5 years =) Although it's a bit wide, I don't even feel that it's there. My guy's is more narrow and matte, while mine is shiny =) Below is a picture from 4,5 years ago, look at how I couldn't apply nail polish properly at all! =D
