Muscles or maybe Mussels?

Here is a questionable stamping plate,  I really have no idea what this image is!  What do you think?  

Muscles or Mussels?  These ideas both came to mind when I first saw this plate.  I've chosen to stamp the latter, just because Halloween is approaching and I don't need any more gory manicures than necessary this month!  And I'm sure Konad didn't intend this image to look like muscle fibers from a biology text book.

The questionable image


...or Mussel?

I do apologise for the following image - it came up when I searched the net for "muscle fibre diagram"  and it made me laugh out loud so I couldn't resist adding it to this post.

Google has everything!


  1. Love this mani! You could do a pink to red gradient for a "muscle" look for Halloween ^_~

    1. Thanks Dreadful, I have a few gruesome halloween manicures planned,, but will do a proper "muscle mani" with a pink to red gradient if I have enough time <3

  2. I love the gradient on its own! The complex, fibrous pattern is lovely - it does look like muscle fibre to me. Looking forward to the gruesome Halloween manicures!

    1. Hehehehe, thanks so much Debs, I think I'm going to have to do the gruesome variation of this manicure xxxXXXXx
