I don't know what to say about this manicure, I just know I love it :) This is the animal pattern from the M2 plate in China Glaze "Wagon Trail" over Zoya "Richelle".
I got some black Konad special polish with my kit, which I used for my very first try. Inspired by Sanna's blog I decided to try another polish to see how it worked. It worked perfectly. Obviously you will need to follow her recommendations for choosing a polish, but I think that if you find the right one they work just as well as special polish :)
