This is simple, but I love it! The red and white are both Konad's special polish. I cannot get the French stamps on to save my life (and I also can't keep a French looking nice to save my life), so Nathan did this for me. He did a really good job, eh? I called this a reverse Minnie Mouse. :) I think I'm going to be obsessed with doing these types of designs now, so I hope my blog doesn't get monotonous!
Basecoat: CoverGirl Boundless Color (Violet Vision)
All-Over Designs: CoverGirl 3-in-1 (Rythmic Blue)
Wind: Konad special nail polish (White)
Topcoat: CoverGirl Boundless Color (Gold Rush)
I'm getting pretty advanced now, using 4 polishes! I think there is a lot of subtlety to this design though, so it's not over the top like 4 polishes could have been. This seems very weather-appropriate to me, though I was afraid at first that it would be very springy, since the basecoat is pastel purple.
I just got a whole batch of nail polishes in that I ordered from drugstore.com. All of the polishes except the white are from that batch. I think I might be becoming a nail polish addict! Uh-oh. Well, I've already half-thought that I might have a shopping addiction, so I guess that would just be a facet of that. It's not an extra addiction, at least!
Basecoat: Zoya nail polish (Gabrielle)
Squares: Konad special nail polish (Wine)
Designs: Konad special nail polish (White)
I had a massage at a local spa, and they had some colors of Zoya nail polish on sale, so I bought this color and another orange color. This color is a shimmery orange, and I really like the look. I couldn't capture a picture of the shimmer, but it looks really neat as the basecoat. Actually, this design was hard to photgraph all around. I think you can see that it's 2010 across the fingers, but in case you can't tell, it's champagne glasses on my thumbs. I've named this Konad polish, which is a dark reddish purple, "wine." Why doesn't Konad label them?
I have a terrible nail-biting problem, but I discovered that if I keep my nails manicured, I won't bite them. After months of $15 French manicures, I bought a Konad kit and got into the world of fancy nails!
