Give Me Liberty of London - Konad Manicure Inspired by MAC's Newest Collection

If you weren't already aware, I'm a pattern fanatic. If my Konad addiction weren't enough of a tip-off, you might recall my love for toile. It doesn't stop at toile; something about patterns just gets me. The uniqueness and interesting designs I could stare at all day before I could ever have a real grasp on what's really going on in front of my eyes. For this reason I also love Vera Bradley products. I love seeing the new patterns every season, even if they're not my cup of tea. Same goes for Liberty of London, who is famous for busy and breathtaking patterns that leave me in awe. When I found out MAC was collaborating with the London store for a new collection, I was so excited. Sadly, barely any of the products are calling out to me enough to actually buy them, but the scarf caught my eye. I'm not going to be purchasing a scarf with a makeup brand's name on it for $100, but I can still enjoy the look of it.

This design isn't supposed to be exactly the same, the little edges around the petals were far too small to attempt to color them in, though I might have been able to add a little black to the outer edges of the petals. Maybe I'll try another time and update you guys. Or check out MAC Artist Keri B's manicure that put the idea of making it into a mani myself into my head, it's awesome and also features Blue Brown pigment!

In the design above I used Konad plate m26 and stamped flowers with a black polish onto a base of Sally Hansen Extreme Wear White On. Then I used Color Club Sexsea for the coral/red, China Glaze Peachy Keen, and China Glaze Bahamian Escape to dot in the colors. For the green I made a mix of Orly Enchanted Forest, OPI You Don't Know Jacques, SH White On and Color Club Explosive to make the green since I didn't have anything like it. The green turned out better than I thought it would!

I love patterns too. They're fun. Well, I don't like this specific MAC pattern, but the mani you created it's just AWESOME! I would have never thought of that konad plate with the flower. And the colors you used... Bravo!
