Gumdrop Fauxnad

Base: Orly "Gumdrop"

Pattern: Konad Princess Polish in Red

Plate: Fauxnad H20 from Chez-Delaney

I decided this week that it was time to trim my nails again. They start to curve under once they get to a certain length and I can't get them to stop no matter what I try. Drives me bananas. I think I do like them better at this length though. Anyway, I'm sure most of you already know this, but I realized that "Gumdrop" the most fantastic dupe of China Glaze "For Audrey" I've ever come across. To me, its almost an exact match.

Call Your Mother Fauxnad

Base: Sephora by OPI "Call Your Mother"

Pattern: Orly "Rage"

Plate: H22 From Chez Delaney

I couldn't decide on what I wanted to do with my nails this week so I grabbed "Call Your Mother" since I've had it forever and never used it, and decided to pair it with "Rage". I think the color combo is kinda pretty and not at all loud and overwhelming like my last mani. Lol. I like it, but I don't love it. Colors like "Call Your Mother" never look that great on me. :-( I don't know whether I'll keep this one on all week or not.

Pattern: Orly "Shine"

Essie's Matte About You

I can't decide how I feel about this one. I think it might have a little too much going on. I do know that I definitely like it better matte though! I just got the new Foil FX Collection from Orly and I have to say, I love all 3 colors both as a base and for stamping. They really do look just like foils!

Essie "Scarlet O'Hara" Fauxnad

Base: Essie "Scarlet O'Hara"

Pattern: Black Konad Special Polish

Plate: Fauxnad H5 from Chez Delaney

Let me just start off by saying that this image was extremely difficult for me to use, but definitely worth it IMO. I had a very hard time scraping the excess polish off without leaving bare spots in the design. Whew. I do love how it came out though. As you can see, I already had an accident with the tip of my pinkie. I have no idea where I hit it. At least it will be easy to fix. I'm going to be sad when it comes time to take this one off...

Bleh Valentine's Konad

Base: OPI "Aphrodite's Pink Nightie"

Pattern: Sally Hansen Insta-dri "Rapid Red"

Plate: Konad M59 and Chez Delaney H34

So, I'm sure you could probably tell by the title of this post that I'm not really thrilled with the way this one turned out. The stamping and everything turned out okay, its just a really lame looking mani. I'm really not a fan of the color combo. I think had I picked different colors I would've liked it more. Pink and red sounded cute for a V-day mani at the time though. I'll be really surprised if I make it through the week without redoing it!
