KOTD: Bandana Nails!

This was an idea I had last night while I was trying to fall asleep.  I'd always thought that this particular stamp from plate m64 looked like a bandana, so I figured I'd go ahead and do a bandana konad, and while tossing and turning last night, I figured out how.

This is OPI Double Decker Red with Migi White and Black pens.  I applied a stamp of black and then applied a stamp of white, trying to offset it as best I could (so you could see both the colors).  I applied a coat of Out the Door TC to set it.  I also applied a coat of Orly Matte Top so it looked more like fabric.

I really love this.  It did take a bit of time (around 30 minutes), but it was pretty simple to do.

You're really good! I have short nails too, and I found really difficult to do my nailart!

MissMarlboro, it is a bit harder for me to do with my natural nails, rather than my longer glue-ons, but it just took me a bit more practice. Also, I have to do A LOT more clean up than I did with my longer nails, particularly with konads, but nothing that makes me not want to do it. LOL. I'm totally addicted to konadding. :P
