Konad haul

I was checking out the Konda Usa website , and found that the Sanrio (Hello Kitty store) store in the mall by my house sells kondad !!! I went and checked it out , the store did not have all the plates avaliable and the konad products are not displayed very well. They are behind the checkout counter . However the owner of the store was really sweet and she had the new plates . How could I resist Konad , I bought three plates and the nail polish remover bottle . I bought plates M 38 M40 and M78. I can't wait to use them !!!!

Green french mani with two butterflies .

Hello , I'm getting ready for st Patrick's day early . I decided to do a green Mani , but keep with a fun almost madi gra design .
I finally got around to making a second attempt with the french manicure plate M19 after reviewing some utube videos and some practice . They are not quite a straight as i would like ,but they look pretty decent .
For this manicure I used base color Satin from Sinful colors , and for the tips and design I used Sally Hansen Insta dry Jumpin jade and IP M19 and M23. Hope you like it . I think my manicure are getting a lil bit better than what they used to be. Practice makes perfect. Practicing is so fun with Konad !

Mardi gra full cover design

Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday , Mardi Gras whooo hooo. Being half cajan French Mardi Gras is a part of my heritage . I noticed that everyone is doing valentine designs , but I haven't seen any Mardi Gras . Here is an idea I had , I used a Sally Hansen Complete Salon manicure in Gilty Pleasure for the base and Sally Hansen insta dry Pronto purple and Jumpin jade with Image plate M60. The argyle design kind of reminds me of the pattern on a Jesters hat . I am still a novice with konad . I still need some more practice , it's not as neat as I would like. Hope you like it ..any one have any pointers on how to get the deigns on straight please let me know ..

floating hearts red french manicure , quick dip acrylics

I did a new set of nails . I like red during valentines and christmas . I decided to try out quick dip acrylic nails again . This time I got a kit , ASP Aspire Quick Dip Acrylic kit . It was so easy to use and the nails came out nice and smooth, better than they have with the other systems I used . I must say that I am now a huge nail fan of ASP products .

Now to the mani . I did red tips and hearts in Sally Hansen rapid red , I did the tips free hand. I used Nina Ultra pro (brand at Sallys ) in spun sugar and IM plate M3.

Have a happy Valentines Day !!!

I had to cut down my nails .

I cut my nails , I can't have long nails anymore :( I really like the way long nails look. Not supper long nails though . I got contact lenses and it is hard to put them in and take them out with long nails. So I will be sporting shorter nails for a while until I get the hang of putting in my contacts . Any one have any pointers on doing your own acrylics ?
