KOTD: ChG White Out w/ ChG Heli-Yum and Migi Black
I was in the mood for something black and white and very graphic with a pop of color. I think this one fits the bill, but there's also a lot going on. I don't consider it a fail, but I won't cry when I take it off tonight. LOL. BTW, pardon the dry cuticles. I hadn't had a chance to moisturize yet this morning.
The base is 3 coats of ChG White Out. I wanted a very stark white and WO works, but it takes so freaking long to get the desired look. I've heard OPI Alpine Snow Matte is a great white base and is opaque in one coat. Plus, if you use a TC, no one is the wiser that it started off as a matte.
After almost 2 hrs of drying time, I applied a full nail konad in the houndstooth pattern using plate m63. The color is ChG Heli-Yum. H-Y is amazing for konadding. I find of all the non-konad and non-nail art polishes (like Migi) polishes, ChG is the most consistent and best for using with the konad system.
Then, because I am horribly addicted to layered konads, I applied a flower using plate m21 in Migi Nail Art Black. I'm sure you've seen that I've used my white and black Migis in konadding quite a bit now. I was sent these a few months back by Migi and I mainly used them for dotting my nails. Then the pen tip on my white quit working, so I had think of another use. They have a brush and they are very thick, so I figured they'd be perfect for konadding. Turns out I was right. :)
