Konad Practice Makes Perfect

MOJ KonadDon’t let the title of the post fool you. I am nowhere near perfect with my Konadicures. But I do believe that practice makes perfect by how much I have improved at stamping my nails.

And a word to the wise? If you are stamping a fresh mani, don’t fool yourself into thinking that just because the top layer is dry, that the nail is dry enough to have a Konad stamp roll on it with the pressure that you choose. It’s not. You’ll be mad. I was!

For this Konadicure, I used a black polish and lots of holographic polishes as partners in crime. As promised in Order in the Court, here are the photos from my attempts at fabulosity.

The colors that were used are:
Eyeko Cosmic Nail Polish as base
China Glaze Wireless Holographic top coat (as top coat duh! 🙂 )
Color Club Worth the Risque as the Konad color

I tried to do a gradient on my ring finger with the China Glaze top coat, but it was more wishful thinking than it was what I hoped. Any advice?

What do y’all think?

Some Random NOTDs

Hey y’all. I spent the weekend trying to clean up my photo cache as well as post drafts, and I can tell you I’ve really been holding out on you!

As always – my attempts are to stick to a two a day posting schedule, but we’ll see how that goes.

Check out my NOTDs from the past that I forgot to post in a timely fashion, and let me know which colors and/or companies your nails have been itchin’ to wear!

Implementing Changes – NOTD

I noticed a lot of blogs have been posting shorter posts for more interactive communication with their readers in between longer posts. The more I saw, the clearer it got that this was a great idea.

So without further ado, I bring to you the new upcoming features to pop up frequently to keep your reading eyes entertained:

Face of the Day(s) b/c I don’t wear makeup every day y’all(FOTD),
Nail of the Day(s) (NOTD),
and many more!

Right now y’all must see my bright version of a DIY french mani.

I know it’s not healthy to talk yourself up – but really… I am really happy with the outcome!

Some of you may not believe me when I say bright colors, but this is certainly proof.

That’s my bright fuchsia/hot pinkish iPhone cover… Believe me now??

These are the full polish swatches/bottle pics for the two bright buggers 🙂

Oops- didn’t realize the size of these pics was so different. Pink Flame on the left and Orange Revenge on the right. The orange is a little less … radioactive looking in person but they are both pretty true to color. Don’t you love it!?
