Odd NOTD + KOTD: BB Couture Frosty Meadow

Hello all! I've got some pictures today of another green (I'm doing all greens this month in honor of Saint Patrick's Day and McDonald's Shamrock Shakes...yum).

This is 3 coats total of BB Couture Frosty Meadow. Now, I posted these pics on the Nail Board and some of the girls commented that FM looks darker and more opaque on me. There are a few possibilities here. 1) I do tend to use thicker coats, so perhaps that's why it appears darker/more opaque on me. 2) I recently purchased this and perhaps BB Couture tweaked the formula. 3) Maybe my pictures are off and I just can't tell (lol). 4) Maybe I received a "bad" bottle. So I don't know? I guess what I'm saying is that this may not necessarily be THE Frosty Meadow that everyone is used to.

Anyway, here's my left hand (the one you usually see) indoors:


THEN less than a day into this lovely mani, I was taking notes on an article and didn't notice my gel ink pen was leaking all over my right hand. It got all over my nails. I tried all the tricks (hairspray, rubbing alcohol) but they didn't work - I mean, the ink was all over my hands. So, I decided to Konad over my right hand using Konad Plate M73.

My right hand (the one you never see since my nails always break on my dominant hand and they are almost always uneven) indoors:


Sorry for the mess on my pinky. I didn't even know it was there until seeing these pics! *embarrassed*

So since I only Konaded over my right hand, I kinda feel like I'm wearing a glove only on my right hand. I like it though. I feel edgy. :)

Okay so first of all... Greens! Thanks so much! :)

Second, I would never have noticed the ink you claim is all over your hands (nor have I noticed the "mess" on your pinky). Your mani looks awesome and this green is gorgeous.

I also have to say I agree with you re: the Konad on one hand.. That's edgy and awesome and I think I'll take a page out of your book sometime!

Ugh...your nails are stupid-perfect and gorgeous!!!! So jealous....My nubbins pale in comparison!

Also I agree with mKat, I think the Konad on one hand is kinda awesome! You're a trendsetter now :) I still haven't ventured into Konad though...I've been resisting!

Whoops - my comment didn't post right! Here goes a second try...

@Thess: Thank you so much! :)

@Rea: Thanks!

@mKat: I looooove greens lately. And thanks for not noticing my mess. :) Luckily, the Konad covered up my inky nails perfectly! Except for that bit on my pinky. :)

@kittytokaren: OMG you are too sweet! BTW I sooo love your nails. I wish I could rock shorter nails - I am constantly accidentally scratching myself lol. And lol at me being a trendsetter! :)

@sarahloo: Thanks so much! You must get this Konad plate - it's one of my faves.

BTW... I think it's funny you always post your left hand. I do too. :) I don't typically have excessive breakage (well by that I mean my right hand doesn't break any more than my left, not that I'm immune to breakage) but I like the shape of my nails on my left hand better. :P Plus it's more natural to hold the camera in my dominant hand.

I agree about never using my right hand for swatches. The last 2 nails are always longer because the more used other 2 are always breaking off.

I love photos like that of both hands, but when I try to get someone to do it they obviously are not as patient as I am with it. =(
