The Mucky Militia

I am really into these mucky murky colours lately and khaki shades are certainly up there for me. I have 2 such shades in my box of nail paint tricks:

Eyeko Military Polish


For brave nails (apparently).


It's not the easiest polish to apply as it is a tad streaky AND it tends to bubble here and there but I do like the colour


Konads work well with this to hide any imperfections. I used Konad plate M57 with China Glaze 2030 to create the animal print effect above.


Topshop Nails Grunge


This is from their Heavy Duty Collection.
It applies almost like a gel. Sound strange? Well its works for me! Applies evenly despite the 1st coat being super sheer. I used 2 coats in these photographs.

I actually really like this shade. It's khaki with gold and silver micro flecks throughout that really adds depth to the colour.


I used a Bundle Monster plate with China Glaze 2030 to create the leaf stamps above.

  9. grunge looks like a great shade for fall! the leopard konad is a nice touch to the eyeko polish...I need to track down a bottle of 2030 now, my bottle of gold doesn't look half as good as that when I use it to konad!

  10. Need to get on this Konad thing. Scouring eBay for the best deal and waiting for an opportunity. I'm torn about Eyeko. Their polishes are everywhere and so highly spoken of...I'm not sure whether I want to order or not.

    Leopard. Love.
