Bright Zebra Konad (First Full Nail Stamping) M57

Hey everyone. This evening I decided to play with my Konad again since the fairy nad was chipping bit and I needed an excuse to practice more LOL.

These nails were partially inspired by some jeans from Hot Topic. The jeans are actually PINK and blue not ORANGE and blue. However I feel like the orange is great since it is blue's complement on the color wheel.

This orange is from N.Y.C. It took 3 coats to get it this color and I still saw some smile line. It also didn't quite dry evenly and I got some dents even after Konading. The color isn't quite TRUE orange it is a bit of an orange/magenta. Oh well. It was good practice and I think it came out pretty good. Here is a picture.

And the jeans... well they were on the clearance rack at HT and they didn't have my size. I would have gotten them if they did since they were an ADDITIONAL 50 percent off the already clearance price.

This is Pumpkin our adorable stray cat that sleeps on our porch bench. He loves us because we give him food and pet him. He has been fixed through TNR with the Homeless Cat Project. TNR means trap, neuter, return which means that the fix them and return them back into the wild so that they won't contribute to the cat overpopulation crisis. If you have strays in your area contact a local group that does TNR.

That's a terrific thing to do with the cats. Shame not every cat can have a home. I'm glad your feeding the cat. Love the tiger manicure. Very cute.

Thanks, Lucy. Sorry I didn't see you comment sooner. It is great what they do for the cats. Cat overpopulation is terrible and they can reproduce more than dogs because they go into heat more often and begin younger than dogs. I wish I could adopt all of the strays and bring them inside. Some are too wild and we haven't gotten to have them caught and fixed yet because they don't know us well enough or trust us yet. In order to domesticate one it would have to be tested for all sorts of things which can add up. I can't just bring them inside since we have other animals.
