So, the pink base of my last manicure started leeching into the white french tips after about a day. It was quite odd and I probably should’ve taken a photo, but that didn’t occur to me until after I’d taken it off.
A simple one this time: chocolate swirl.
That this orange on orange leopard print is so hard to see (and photograph!) automatically bumps it to the top of my ‘favourite subversive work konads’ list.
It wasn’t, admittedly, the look I’d intended to achieve. I thought OPI’s Brisbane Bronze would be browner and Konad’s Pastel Orange would pop more… more of a reverse leopard print than tone-on-tone. In the bottle, the colours look miles apart.
I think I’m most enamoured by the interplay of shimmer and flat colour. A happy accident!
Lovely as tone-on-tone nails are, however, I was really hankering after some leopard print nails for tonight’s Roller Derby match. Since I found myself cheering inexplicably for Brutal Pageant in the first clash, I thought I’d show Smash Malice a little love this time.
Delightfully not subtle.
