Green-Blue peacock mani

I combined a few colors at my oldest daughter's request and it turned out very cool looking UNTIL I stamped it! My konad stamping silver has gotten so thick that it's pretty useless. I have added some polish thinner, but I don't know if that will work...On to the weird results!
I started out with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Last chance, a pretty dark green creme. I sponged SH Black Out over the tips, and then sponged a bit of Sally Hansen's Blue-It over the black, just enough that you could see all 3 colors.

Here is just the black sponged on...hard to see!

Here is all three. The blue seems to make the black stand out more. Good thing!

I really should have stopped there, because by the time I realized what the Konad polish was doing-too darn late (Bundle Monster 212 I think).  After the first finger, most of the polish didn't even come off the stamping pad and I am pretty darn fast with this stuff. Plus, the lines of the design, which were very fine and pretty, look thicker, almost blurred. All in all not quite a mani fail...but darn close in my book!

This one turned out the best except that I misjudged the size/orientation, grrrr! Not a bad recovery, with the side stripe :0)

Your gradient looked awesome! The silver did distract from it, but it's still pretty.

Thanks! This mani drove me so batty, I took it off after one day at work...go figure.
