Monday Blues: blue houndstooth

Hello my lovelies! I bet you are not very thrilled that it's Monday. So here I come to save the day with some amazing blue nails. It's a simple mani but I like it a lot and I hope you will too! 

I wanted to use this pattern on my nails for ages and what better base than a gorgeous cornflower blue! This is Orly Snowcone (previously reviewed here), one of my favorite blues. It has an amazing formula and I only used one coat for this mani! If you don't own this you must get it and fast! 

I then used Kleancolor Metallic Black to stamp the houndstooth pattern. It's the second time I attempt using this polish and this time it went well. It's very pigmented and might smudge if you aren't that careful with it. I used the m63 Konad dupe for the image. I just love the shimmer in this black polish and I think it adds a little extra something to the mani!

I hope you liked this and make sure you check out the other posts from the ladies participating in the Monday Blues challenge:

  1. Very cool, I like this design. Really looks good with the blue.

  2. Gorgeous Mihaela!!! I love the blue/black combo. And I love the shimmer in the black.

  3. Great color combo! That black really reminds me of a Golden Rose Matte Velvet I got in Finland. The shimmer is awesome.

  4. This is my fave design of all time! I've decided that I really love your pictures. There's something about them I really like!

  5. I really love this design too! Thank you so much! I'm flattered! I really work a lot to get good pictures :)

  6. Thank you! I would love to see how the black looks by itself and maybe with a matte top coat. But I'm afraid it would stain because it's so pigmented.
