Roses are Red

I haven't done much konadicures with a white background so in order to make the red design pop out more, I've decided to try it. I've used Sally Hansen Insta Dri in White (Not sure about the actual name color since I threw the bottle away already.) The plate I've used for this is Konad Plate M65. Enjoy!

I'll be posting two more rose designs in the following days! Look out for that!

Retro Green with Envy

The polish I've used with this one is also named Green with Envy. It's funny how they're both named the same but they're completely different colors. This konadicure has gotten a lot of attention from other people even strangers.

It's vain but whenever I'm driving, I'd be looking at this because it's just so pretty. My camera phone doesn't do it justice.

I've used:
1. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green with Envy
2. Plate M65

Green with envy

This is another one of my past konadicures. Here, I've used one of my first nail polishes, Rimmel Green with Envy along with Konad plate m64.

I ordered some large fauxnads off ebay and I hope to get them in two weeks. I'm really excited to make some more designs with those. I also used my Canon camera's color accent function.

Ai Love the Lime Light

As promised, here's one of my Konadicures. This is pronounced Ai meaning Love in Japanese, hence the title.

As you can see, this was pretty rushed (and super simple) because I was going somewhere when my nail polish chipped and so I decided to just make a new one.

The design smeared a little and the stamp is all over the place. But that effect was to my advantage because people thought that I actually wrote them since I'm studying Japanese.

This color is actually a lot brighter and flatter. It ended up like this because of the top coat and the smearing.

I used:
1. China Glaze in Lime Light
2. Plate M8

For fun, I've also written some Kanji. Looking at it again makes me cringe because my penmanship has never been good. I'd rather type than write any day.

I'm back with a review - Poshe Top coat

I've been so busy the last few months that I haven't been blogging at all. Although I have been taking pictures of my nails so expect a lot of konad posts.

But for now allow me to review the Poshe Top Coat:

I saw this at Winner's and since I've never really heard about it, I just took one set. I never knew that I'll regret not taking the other sets because I can't find it anymore. I will definitely be ordering online though when I get the chance.

I also have Seche Vite top coat which got a lot of raves too. But honestly I didn't like it that much because Konad won't stick to it. Imagine my joy when I used Poshe over my nail polish and then Konad worked with it. After applying the top coat to all my nails, I no longer have to wait for it to dry, I can use Konad right away without any worries. This makes 'nadding much more fun. Also, as long as I don't go over the design twice, this doesn't smear the design.

Pros: Works with Konad, doesn't smear design, dries fast, not too thick, results in a smooth texture (which I like)

Cons: Hard to find here, becomes too thick quite fast (but can be fixed with the Polish Reviver)

It is definitely my HG top coat. This deserves five stars since the cons aren't enough to deduct even half a star.

Flower Garden

I usually have a general idea of what I want to do when I begin doing my nails but this time, I just came up with this as I went along, adding one element after another. I think this is one of my favorite designs. It was a little hard to add the flowers because I'm not so used to it plus two of the flowers fell out the next day. Hope you like it!

I used:

1. China Glaze's Sexy in the City
2. Plate M56
3. Plate C02
4. Flower rhinestone

Sally's Beauty Supply Haul

I had $5 off at Sally's and so I decided to pick up some polish. I've been trying to do a gradient effect (without much success) so I bought some more blue shades.

I got:
  1. Orly in Sweet Blush
  2. China Glaze in Sexy in the City
  3. China Glaze in In the Lime Light
  4. China Glaze in FrostBite
