Good morning, Dear Reader!
After all the swatches and plain colors I've shown you lately, I thought I'd show you the Konadicures I've done after my swatchfests.
For the first, I used two coats of Nubar Sphinx Purple as a base, then added a floral pattern from Konad plate M37, using FingerPaints Papier Mache for the stamping. This is a picture of the finished manicure in the sun.
Next up is my Seahorse Konadicure, which made me giggle all day Friday. It's two coats of Nubar Cayman Coral with the seahorse patterns from fauxnad plate C04, also using FingerPaints Papier Mache.
The last one really pleased me too, because it's the first time I've had the nerve to use this pattern. It looked hard to center, which it was, but the Konadicure didn't turn out bad at all! I started with Misa Blue over a Boy, and the pattern is from Konad plate M64. I used blue Konad polish which I'd thinned for the pattern - I've found the thinning puts an end to smudging the pattern with top coat.
That's what I have for you today, Dear Reader.
Don't forget - Nubar loves you, too! Until March 31st, they have a coupon code that's good for 20% off orders of $50 or more on www.bynubar.com, and they have free shipping over $75 (after the coupon). The code is nlphle2050, and it's here just in time for the release of their Coral and Cleopatra Collections, which became available last night. Have a good haul, enjoy a good break on the price, and until tomorrow, Dear Reader, love and nail polish to you!
