Paddy Plaid

The inspiration for this design came from a picture that I saw on Pinterest. It was a design from Steph's Closet.
I am a big fan of plaid and thought that it would make a great design for St. Patrick's Day. 


I started with 2 coats of China Glaze White on White. 



Next, I added a strip down the middle with China Glaze Electric Pineapple.



Next, I added the plaid using KONAD m60 and China Glaze Holly-Day. This stamp kind of sucks.  It doesn't hold the polish and the stamper doesn't pick it up.  This leads to a crappy application.  I know that I am not supposed to point out the flaws, but this stamp is not up to my standards.  To many problems!



In an attempt to hide some of the flaws I added a coat of Fingerpaints Flecked.



And 1 coat of NYC.
