"Grey skies are gonna clear up..."

Canada has been pretty mild for the past week or so but the sun hasn't been out as much as I'd like.  Since all of this dreariness has left me feeling quite dull, I thought I'd make the best of it and find manicure inspiration. Lately I just haven't been inspired to be creative at all and I blame this only partially on the weather. :P

I began with 3 coats of China Glaze Recycle. Unfortunately, as many of you probably know, Recycle applies in a pretty strange way at first (thin and drippy) so it took three coats to get things nice and even. When I finally did though, it was great! I haven't worn this colour before but I've grown quite the affection for crèmes and ended up loving the way this looked.  I have great plans for this colour in the future. 

 Of course, I am never one to leave well enough alone and I ended up Konading  on top of Recycle. The pattern and colours were good in theory, but in practice I actually found this KOTD took away the beauty of Recycle on its own.  Ah well.. lesson learned!

Base coat: China Glaze Recycle
Plate: m70

I like this one with the Konad! I don't think it takes away from the beauty of Recycle.

I'd say it adds to the beauty, complements it ... if you'd used a solid silver, like ChG Millennium it might not have, but the OMG really brings the richness of Recycle out, I think :)

Thanks everyone. I think the fact that I thought Recycle was so stunning on its own is what's clouding my judgment. Most of the time I look at polish and think it needs a Konadicure... but Recycle just looked so wonderful in its naked glory... LOL
