>Long time no proper Konad, I know! =) I sort of didn’t know what to do with all those new materials like rhinestones, pearls, bullion beads, acrylic paint, etc. It was suddenly too much! But then I started designing some artificial nails and also stamping them, and I came up with some nice designs, which I’m going to recreate on my own nails.
For this design I used Essie Playa Del Platinum as my base color. I actually started with MAC Light Affair, but it has such a bad formula that I almost threw it out of the window in rage. It’s thick, chalky, streaky and doesn’t even itself out. I’m going to get Essie Body Language tomorrow, which is a dupe for Light affair, and I’m sure it’s going to be much easier to work with.
After 3 coats I sponged OPI Rising Star halfway up the nail, then I sponged OPI Take The Stage on the very tips. I stamped the flower design from m75 using konad special polish in black, and added some orange rhinestones from eBay to complete the look.




I love how a soft, neutral color like Playa Del Platinum changes slowly to gold and bronze. I’m a sucker for nail art that is bold but not tacky =)

Uzun zamandır doğru düzgün Konad yapmamıştım, farkındayım =) Bir anda üstüme yağmur gibi yağan taşlar, inciler, boncuklar, akrikik boyalar yüzünden ilham patlaması yaşamak yerine tıkanıp kalmıştım. Sonra özel günler için takma tırnak tasarlamaya başladım, ve bu sırada bir sürü yeni fikir geldi aklıma. Bunların bazılarını kendi tırnaklarımda da uygulayarak göstereceğim =)
Bu manikürde tabanda Essie Playa Del Platinum var. Kum beji diyebiliriz, bayıldığım bir renk. Aslında MAC Light Affair ile başlamıştım, ama oje o kadar kötü ki sinirden camdan aşağı fırlatasım geldi bir ara. Aşırı yoğun, kireç gibi, düzgün sürmek imkansıza yakın. Yarın Essie Body Language almayı düşünüyorum, renk olarak Light Affair’in aynısı ve sürümünün çok daha katlanılabilir olduğuna eminim.
Neyse, 3 kat PdP sürdükten sonra OPI Rising Star altın rengi ojeyi tırnağın üst yarısına sünger ile uyguladım, sonra da OPI Take The Stage bronz ojeyi uçlara uyguladım. Konad siyah ojesi ile m75 diskindeki çiçekleri yaptım, son olarak da çiçeklerin ortasına turuncu taşlar ekleyerek tamamladım.
Playa Del Platinum gibi yumuşak, sade bir rengin yavaş yavaş altın ve bronza dönüşmesi güzel bir etki yarattı. Böyle abartılı ama rüküş olmayan tırnaklara karşı zaafım var =)
