Plaid Lunar Eclipse

Don't you love how clever that title is? Leave me alone, I'm sick. I can't be clever when I'm sick.

Even though I feel too yucky to do makeup, I've been okay for nails. My nails had gotten too long and were scratching me so I cut them, and it feels so weird! I always have them long so my fingertips feel naked.
I used Orly's Lunar Eclipse as the main color and China Glaze's Midnight Kiss as the stamp color.
Sorry about the yucky no-flash pic, it's the only way I could get the pattern to show up. Also, check out how short my nails are. Weird!
Lunar Eclipse is a really lovely color, but the formula is kind of difficult. You really need 3 coats to get it opaque, though this is only 2. I figured it didn't matter since I was putting a design on it anyway. The first coat looks super gross, but by the third, it's gorgeous. Midnight Kiss actually works pretty well as a stamp, even though it's subtle.
I can't help but think about my high school when I look at this. The school colors were blue and gold. I kind of hated my high school, so I can't say I'm in love with this design. haha Oh well. What do you expect, I'M SICK! *cough* *sniff* Okay, that was the last time. XD

Have a lovely evening!
