Purple & Gold Roses.

Finally another konad-icure! I was all out of acetone (nightmare!) and had to wait until my day off, yesterday, to stock up. We have had SO much snow here lately, 2 days ago we got 4 inches and today were supposed to get 7 inches, its a Winter Wonderland out there!

Winter Wonderland

So to liven my spirits I decided to do something other than a manicure with MORE snowflakes, I decided on China Glaze - VIII as a base coat and stamped with Love My Nails - Gold Dust 1585 (Which stamps REALLY well by the way!) The VIII is SUCH a dark purple that it almost looks black, especially since we have NO sunlight here! :( I aboslutely love using the China Glaze - Strong Adhesion Base Coat, my nail polish will stay on for 3x longer than it ever has! Even though im constantly changing it anyways! I can't stand chipped nail polish. also has a promotion going on for $6.99 off an order & as always free shipping over $20, so I tool advantage and ordered some new image plates, Check out there twitter for the coupon code! I was SO impressed that I got an instant confirmation email and my plates were actually shipped out the SAME DAY that I ordered them, now THAT'S service :)

Thanks Zoya! :)

I was SO excited to find out the Zoya promotion for 3 FREE fullsized nail polishes on facebook, all you have to pay is $6.95 for shipping! I spent a while deciding on which colors to choose, I didn't own any Zoya polishes but had previously tried them at a local day spa, I love how they have TONS of colors, I can see the begining of a beautiful addiction.

Edyta, Savita & Nova
 These 3 were my final decisions! Such beautiful colors and Savita is actually a Matte Velvet Polish! Which 3 colors did you get in the Zoya promotion?

365 Days Of Nail Art.

While enjoying my morning coffee and perusing the world wide web I decided to check out 365 Days Of Nail Art (a new obsession of mine!) and SURPRISE, I was featured today with my China Glaze - For Audrey nails!

As you can tell I couldn't decide what to do on my nails so I just did a little bit of everything, It was my 2nd or 3rd mani after I had gotten my Konad so I went a little crazy! Whats your favorite plate?

Snowed In Nails.

When I woke up this morning there was a white blanket of the fluffy stuff covering everything outside, So much that I didn't have to go to work! So since I was stuck inside the house all day I decided to do a "snow-y day manicure"

I started off by filing, buffing, and painting the basecoat on (white with the exception of the ring finger) I used Pure Ice "Superstar" and Orly "Blue Collar" waited for that to dry and then stamped some snowflakes on with my Konad plate M59. I also added a clear rhinestone on the ring finger applied with clear nail polish and tweezers.
