Exceptionally Gifted!

  I love the name of this polish - I feel that it fits me perfectly, hah hah.  ;)  It is gorgeous, too!

Outdoors, shade, no flash
  For these nails, I started off with three coats of China Glaze Exceptionally Gifted, which is a medium pink, frosty polish with little flecks of sparkly goodness!  I love this color a lot - the little glitter particles really add something to it that other frosty colors like this don't have.  It is also a great pink tone; sometimes it is hard to find that perfect girly, "Barbie" pink but this really fits the bill!  It does have a tendency to show a hint of brushstroke, but careful application really helps that and it only seems to show up in bright direct light, anyway.  Here are a couple of shots of the color by itself.

Outdoors, direct sun - enlarge to see the glitter!
Outdoors, shade - can barely see any brushstrokes
  On top of this, I added the geometric Konad design using plate m65 and Konad Special Black.  Of course, my total inability to let the Konad dry at all before adding topcoat lead to a bit of smudging (boo), but still looks really awesome overall!  I am starting to really enjoy the pink and black combo... you can probably expect to see more of it. :)

  1. Pink and black always looks awesome together! I have Exceptionally Gifted and I have M65, I think I'm going to try this look! :)

  2. awww! I did this exact design before xmas but I used a different pink. Never got around to posting the pics tho so I am glad to see that someone else had the time to get them up lol

  3. I always love this stamp over a light green - makes it look like aliens!

  4. Thanks for the compliments, glad you all like this one!

    Using this stamp over light green sounds like fun, I may have to try it sometime. :)
