Konad Leopard on Pure Ice Busted, haul, big moth

Hi Kids
Last week was a long and grueling one, however, I did manage a bit of retail therapy on Tuesday. I purchased some gorgeous India inspired tunics, in addition to some random nail polishes, one of which, was the base for a Konadicure I sported for a couple of days. I really hated the way my nails looked with this one. I pretty much rushed through my fill this week, and left my nails on the thick side. I had planned on doing a straight-up glitter mani with Finger Paints, Wicked Glitter. Since I was extremely pressed for time, I figured that the glitter would camouflage my thick and unfinished nails for a couple of days, and I could do my "finishing" filing and shaping after grinding the glitter off.

It was against my better judgment to wear Pure Ice, Busted- however-  Jim requested it, and since he usually doesn't take much interest in mani business, I could not refuse. He was fascinated with the glass flecked, shimmery bottles of the new Sally Hansen HDs and Pure Ice Busted.
Unfortunately, I managed to magnify the thickness of my nails even more with the way I stamped the leopard, full nail, Konad image.
I had to stamp the image on the horizontal to span my nail width, but forgot to rotate the second stamp 360, leaving the finished image *very* contrived and too repetitive.

I wasn't going to post this Konadicure but I accidentally took a picture in my light-box that I think is pretty cool.
I could not decide which I like better, so you get both!

Something weird...I took this picture at work on Saturday night.
This giant, yellow moth was on the outside of a second story window.

I can't even see the thickness to your nails.  Love the leopard print.  Your like Sasha with the bug photos.  I think you can get tons of inspiration from the coloring fo insects.  So many beautiful colors and interesting patterns.
