KOTD: OPI Lunch at the Delhi with Migi White

Sorry for the craptastic pic, but I wanted to go on and post this while it was on my mind.  If I think about it, I'll take another pic in the morning.

LatD is a muted, corally red.  When it was released, OPI described it as a coral.  It does have a hint of coral, but it's definitely a dusty red.  I used b/c I was kinda lemming Essie Chubby Cheeks, but LatD looks close and there's no need for a dupe of this kind of color, no matter how pretty.  This is 2 coats, though it could have used a third, you can still see VNL IRL.  If I wasn't doing a konad, I would have done a third.

As for the konad, this is another one of the fauxnad eBay plates.  I have a small obsession with lobsters and crabs (not live or cooked ones (blech), but cute ones.  LOL) and I was lemming this plate something awful.  Unfortunately, it didn't apply/release all that well, so it wasn't great, but I still love it.  I think it would look awesome in the summer.

EDITED to change my 2am typos.  :)

Hi there! You know, I have that same plate, and I've realized that it is harder to stamp. I've found that the image carries much better when you clean the plate after every stamp, I know it's kind of a pain, but it really makes a difference! At least for me it did. =] BTW, I love that little lobster stamp, or is it a scorpion? o.0 hehe.

Okay, good to know. :) I normally don't clean my plate after each stamp, but this time, I did about half the time, and I really didn't notice a huge difference. I plan on trying it with a different color (like a ChG Romantique) to see if it's a consistant problem or just a problem with certain polishes (I sometimes have issues with white polishes anyway).
As for *what* it is, I have no idea. LOL. I chose to believe it's a lobster with a curvy tail because of my love for cartoony lobsters, but it may just be a scorpion. I say lobster, though. :P

I agree, it's a lobster. lol
Wow I can't get over how much your nail improved!
How do they look under the polish? Is the damage almost gone?

P.S. I see you have my link on your blogroll (thanks!) but I changed my blog's name and address yesterday.
It used to be "Een Minder Mutsig Nagelblog" and it's now "The Dutch Nail Blog". The name just wasn't working that well, too Dutch. ;)
Would you mind updating your blogroll so it shows the right link?

Thanks, everyone!

Kirsten, I added your new blog name, I just didn't delete the old one yet. I'll do that now. :)

As for my nails, I think the damage is almost gone. I still have a bit discoloring, and the nail line on some of them is a little jacked up, but for the most part, they've healed. I'll take pics tonight after I take off this mani, so I can show how they look.

I actually had to take a two of them down yesterday. So, they are growing. YAY! But on some of them, the growth is a little wonky, so I'm hoping after all the damaged nail is gone, my growth will be much stronger.

Love your lobster nails! I also love to eat lobster and crab. Your nails are safe from me. I like the color and it does look like the color of cooked lobster. It's definitely a lobster stamp because of the large claws. Hand me some melted butter, yummy!
