Camping in the Woods with a Pretend MP5

I thought I'd have another go at the eBay Collection 2000 lottery, and picked out this one.

It's Collection 2000 Hot Looks 9 Catwalk, and it's a most marvellous green. It's a bit of a dirty metallic green, good if you need to camouflage your nails in the woods for paintballing, and it's got a stonking bit of shimmer to it as well. Actually very chuffed with this colour, it came out much better than expected and I just wore the colour, pure, on its own for a day. Then, obviously, it got the Konad treatment.

Also got some new Fauxnad plates as well -- these are GCOCL G plates and were also an eBay aquisition (plates are here). The numbering differed from the ones in the listing but they're the same plates with some gorgeous floral designs on, as well as the obligitary Hello Kitty design.

Not sure about those gold flowers ...

I liked the look of plate G15 and decided on the central flower design. This got stamped on with Superdrug MUA Shade 2 (black), then the flower part was stamped again, this time using Collection 2000 Alloys 292 (Gold). The rest of the nails just got a gold flower and the centres of the flowers were dotted with Orly Winter Wonderland. Unfortunately, they looked a bit messy -- maybe I should have understamped them with some black, or done the full nail stamp, I don't know.

Still looks pretty badass though, despite being 'not right'.
