OPI Mad as a Hatter, and of course, some Konad!

As I've said in a previous post, I love O.P.I....I truly do, I just don't like the price tag associated with it. Whenever I buy one (or two), I have this conversation in my head that goes along the lines of "I could buy 3 China Glaze polishes, or 16 Wet 'n Wild polishes, or X number of _______ polishes instead of just this measly one or two". But every now and then, there's an OPI polish that I just have to have, so I shake off the other voice in my head and go ahead and buy it. I can because it doesn't break my no-more-than-nine-dollars rule.

So up today, I have O.P.I.'s Mad as a Hatter. It looks like a party in a bottle, and definitely a party on your nails. Easy application (although a pain to remove as all glitters are); this picture represents three coats. First picture indirect natural light, second picture in some sun.

As most sparkly, glittery polishes, it's hard to capture on the sparkly goodness in a photo. I'm working on my photographic skills, but unfortunately, this is the best I can do for now.

Every since my "hot mess konad" post, I've wanted to try some more Konad over glitters, so here's my Konad for this one. I used Wet 'n Wild Fantasy Makers Black for the stamp, and plate M65.

Sorry about the lack of clean-up before the pics, I was kinda in a hurry. I like this one...whatcha think?
