Like a maniac, but with Konad.

Polka Time

More pink and black, I know, I know... But I like it! The pink is from Color Club 'She's soo glam' and the dots are Konad black using plate m79. There are so many color options for polka dots!

The Way Tutu His Heart

Well it's been a while, but I'm back with some cute nails! Last night I went to Sephora and the Urban Ballerinas mini set was calling to me. I love the color of the light pink , the way tutu his heart, but it was so streaky and thin! It took 4 coats to get it to be presentable. I used Konad black and a bundle monster plate for the design.

Vegas Nails

It's true, Vegas nails should be all about the bling! I recently discovered while wearing the tuxedo nails that rhinestones drive me nuts. But I saw this idea on a nail supply website where you use regular temporary tattoos on your nails and thought it would be perfect! Each nail is unique and so I don't think I will get sick of it on the duration of the trip, I have something different to look at on each nail!
There are lots of pictures because I tried to capture images of both hands...

The base colour underneath is one coat of OPI Nicole 'You're a Star', it was just enough to add some shimmer and bring out the colour of the temporary tattoos. I covered each design with 2 coats of Seche Vite.

I couldn't really get a good pic of it, but that middle finger actually says 'Las Vegas'!

My favourite is the koi fish. Which one do you like?

Gambling With Polish


I am heading to Vegas next week and I have been searching for ideas for polish to wear. It has to be super awesome because I have to be able to look at it for 5 days and not get sick of it. (Could be tough!) I was trying some images out on Konad plate M48, the one with the gambling images. Is it just me, or are these images really hard to use in a nail design so it doesn't look silly?? I tried a few things and this is one of the only things that looked ok. I used the slot machine cherries across my smile line using Konad special polish in Red Wine (which I bought by accident because I thought it was black, woops).
I am thinking this isn't going to cut it. Any ideas ladies? Maybe with some glitter, or rhinestones hmmmm...

Pastel Clouds

I went away for the weekend, but I'm back! While I was away I picked up Konad plate M79 and basically rushed home to try it.
The polish is Joe Fresh Style from the Superstore and it's called 'Faded Violet', it's so pretty, don't you think? It was good consistency and opaque after two coats. For some reasons the white and purple with the clouds reminded me of My Little Ponies! hahaha

Hello There!

I am going to a wedding this weekend and was searching for something that looked fancy and formal when I came across Konaddict's 'Black Tie' look. It was perfect. I would say that this is my version of it, but it's not, this is a blatant copy. Imitation is the best form of flattery, right? Click here to see Konnaddict's originals.
The silver I used for the tips is Avon Mirror Shine in Aluminium, the white and black are both Konad polishes. The tuxedo 'shirt' is from plate M71 (although I don't see why you couldn't use the stripe on M57) and the bows are M59 for all nails except for the pinkies because my nails were too skinny so I used the smaller bow on M56. 

I LOVE it! Thank you, Konaddict!

I just received my bundle monster plates and couldn't wait to play around a bit. There are so many neat designs but I settled on this pretty damask design to try out.
I used bundle monster plate BM20 and Konad white special polish. It's so pretty and lacy! I tried out some rainbow glitter on my other hand but it really did not turn out well in photos. I sort of like one hand sparkly and one hand plain. hee hee!
