I have had my Konad set since Thanksgiving and am just beginning to find out all the possibilities. I am following 'nad blogs like crazy and loving what I see. Also, with the now 24" of snow, I have plenty of free time. Here are my trials and errors so far:
1st Konadicure EVER!
~ Special Polish in White, Blue and Yellow using M19 and M60. I added a little gold heart later. This was about 3 days in to the mani, so there was a bit of wear, but still, not bad for a 1st try!
Here is #2!
~ Special Polish in Red and White using M19 and layering with M45 and added a snowflake from M59. One little clear crystal on ring finger.
Take a look at #3:
~Special Polish in Yellow for tips, M19. Layering done with Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Blazing Blue. Plates M18, M52 and M9.
Here comes the next one, #4:
~Base coat - 2 coats Wet N' Wild Goldmine. Special Polish Metallic blue for lettering using M17, M18 and M52.
*disclaimer - we LOVE WVU sports, however, we lost both the Gator Bowl and A BBall game that day, so this mani was promptly removed by halftime...LOL!
AND - #5
Here is where I decided to get a little more creative, I think....
~ Two coats of OPI Merry Midnight (LOVE THIS COLOR!!!!). Special Polish in white and plate M54. One little crystal on ring finger.
DRUM ROLL ~~~~~~~~~ KOTD!!!!
~ Base is 2 coats of ICING (some sort of metallic blue, there is no tag and it's
REALLY old)....Special Polish in White and plates M60 & M69. I tried to make the "argyle" angle across the tips of my nails - solid fail - still working on my technique, as you can tell...anyway over the tip, I used Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Diamond and for the snowflake, Sally Hansen Salon in Pedal to the Metal. I think it's OK - but as soon as my China Glaze Khrome Collection gets here (oh my), I'll be using those for my metallic stamps.
