shattered - It's not what you think!

Do you ever have one of those days (or weeks in my case) where everything just seems to go wrong? Last week was one of those weeks unfortunately. I'm totally over it now thank God!

So I'm walking to the bus stop on my way to work, pull out my iphone from my pocket to read a text message... it slips right out of my hand in my half awake state that I am usually in in the morning, and CRASH, right in to the sidewalk, I swear it bounced!



So yes... "inspired" by this look on my phone I decided to stamp Bundle Monster plate 208 on my nails for the broken glass/mirror look. My poor phone :(




Lucky for me my phone is still in perfect working order and it's an easy fix, I have already ordered the part in and my dad has taken apart iphones and put them back together before, so I'm all good :) The part is coming from Hong Kong though so it will take a while.




Enough about the phone, here are some more photos of my shattered nails. The contrast between the black and the base polish really made the multichome come out more. That, and the glossy topcoat really made me love this mani soooooo much.




I used my NYC quick dry top coat on this one. Since it is almost finished it has thickened up a bit, but with a little bit of thinner this polish is the PERFECT consistancy to seal in Konad designs. I used special black for stamping and got no smudging whatsoever! That is a first with the Konad black special polish, I'm usually too scared to even add a top coat sometimes lol

  4. Ow those days/weeks are terrible.. But sometimes it just happen, so why not make the best of it and get some inspiration like you did! Beautiful manicure.

    I follow your blog now for a pretty long time and maybe you followed mine on Melaniesnailpolish (The Color Palette), but I moved to a new blog that fits my ideas. Maybe you would like to take a look at www.thecolorpaletteblog.blogspot.com
    Maybe I see you there :)

  5. Fingers - thanks! Yes, I am very lucky to have Mr. fit-it as a dad :) I idn't like crackle at first either, then got kinda obsessed, I hate how it hit the mainstream though

    Megan- thanks, I really like this design, my plate has a flaw in it unfortunately, the images was ingrained too shallow so I had to be very careful in application, my right hand came out worse. BM is great though, they are sending me a new plate :)

    imfeelingnail-venturous & mrsrexy - thanks!

    ABBY -lol it totally is! I noticed you were sporing some yellow polish with Konad hibiscus flowers, that has to be my favorite plate :)

    Melanie - just glad those days are over! and thanks for the re-direct, I will definitely be following ;)
