a little shirtspiration

i'm blogging from my bed tonight because my poor baby girl is struggling with acid refulx, and REFUSES to sleep anywhere but my chest :x

So here we lie.

I wore a shirt the other day that suddenly made me think it'd serve as good inspiration to try some nail art.

After looking at it further, I discovered the color of the shirt matches almost EXACTLY China Glaze's 'Kinetic Candy'... so I free handed a little design from the shirt.


Nothing particularly creative since I copied it straight from the shirt,
but I thought it was kind of neat, nonetheless :)

I used 2 coats of 'Kinetic Candy' as my base... & it was quite the let down. I just bought it a couple weeks ago but I don't know if I just got a bad bottle or what, because the formula of this polish was uber thick and sticky. Though I love the color, it's almost not worth the trouble :/

Then I used a Konad stamping plate (can't remember which one- would go find out but i'm trapped in my bed at the moment) for the hearts. I used the same Konad polish with a dotting tool, nail art brush, & striper to do the rest!

I enjoyed this & would like to do some more,
so hopefully I'll think of something else soon :)
Have a good night!
