Good Koni Idea, not so good results

So today I thought I'd stamp that fun, boxy design on Konad plate M73 onto my Sag Harbor mani. And I thought to would look cool if I did a dual color stamp with green blending into white. Well, it was great in theory but didn't look that great on the nails. So then I added some gold sparkles: Cover Girl-Gold Rush and Sinful Colors-Paris. And that didn't really please me either.
There's just something I'm not feeling. Maybe a darker base color would do better. I have not given up on this design. I want it on! It will work for me!
At leat I like my tooties!! I got tiger toes! There on the prowl!
