Pink Wednesday: Milani Digital & Konad

Hi sweeties :)

I've always wanted a pink holo polish in my stash. My dream pink holo would be QT or BFF from China Glaze's OMG collection, but they're sooo expensive on Ebay :( I'm trying to get some Spectraflair pigment and make my own dream pink holo <3

But when I made my first order at Cherry Culture, I couldn't resist to get that cute Milani from their 3D collection, Digital !
Digital is a light pink scattered holo. I know that some people prefer linear holos, but I like the two styles the same :)
The base is a very soft, sweet shade of pink. I had to use three coats for a perfect coverage, but it dries fast so it didn't bother me.

The first two pics are take inside under artificial light, Digital looks like a brighter pink under full sun.



I wanted to add a little something to that polish. I'm still trying to improve my tape manicure technique but I have some more lessons to take lol :)

First I stamped my nails with black Konad polish and a pattern from Konad plate m64, added a coat of Seche Vite to protect the design and added a black french manicure with tape.
The polish I used for the french was Essence Berlin Story but it's definitely too thick for the tape technique and I can't get a smooth, straight line. It also made my tips bumpy 'cause of the thickness, not so pretty.

Oh, and apologize my Konad skills, I also need some training because it seems all my designs are stamped partially T_T


Anyway, I liked the idea and will try again. I like how my index finger looks here, I think it's the one I managed to do the best.

What's your advice ? :)
