Stacked Deck

Hi, everyone!  Happy Friday!
So, I've been eyeing the QA 29 plate for quite a while but I kept trying to convince myself that I didn't need any more plates!  Well, this plate was on sale at the Born Pretty Store for, like, $2!  Irresistible, right? (Well, that's what I keep telling myself!)

My plate finally arrived!  I decided to try out a tape manicure to create the look of playing cards.

I started with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White.  I used tape to create the "card" corner and used Kleancolor Metallic Black over the tape.  Then, I stamped the card designs with Wet n Wild Black Creme and Sally Hansen Insta Dri Racin' Red.

So...I had some technical difficulties - my tape edges weren't straight, I ended up with another color (from where?  who knows?) in the white while I was cleaning up the edges.  Then I had some smearing with my topcoat.  So, this one's got some flaws, but it's still pretty fun to wear.

I decided to call it "Stacked Deck" when I noticed two ace of hearts on my left hand!

Take care, Konaddicts!  See you soon!
