>Hello everyone! Sorry for the absence, it has been such a hectic week for me… Thank God, everything will be over on the 27th. Phew! That’s the bad thing about being a last minute person =)
Anyway, today I’m going to show you the nails from the past week. First: sunshine yellow jelly polish from Clarie’s & konad m53:




This was 5 coats!!! I loved this one, but sadly it was not fully dry for a few hours, and I managed to nick it at the cuticles, which I hate. Tips can be covered, but cuticles not =(

Then I have the coral/pink pastel polish, layered with China Glaze Pure Torture. I looooove Pure Torture, so happy I got it. I can layer one coat over any red, and it turns this gorgeous, bright, saucy red I love, and can’t find anywhere!!!


A layered konad using m74. I don’t know what was going on in my mind, I was sleepless for 32 hours that day =D


Then I did a full mani with China Glaze Glam:


Glam is sooo bumpy, and runny, I like it but I wasn’t very careful with the application, so it didn’t stay very long.

Finally, my current mani, inspired by the sudden snowstorm outside. I used the magnificent purple glitter polish I recently discovered, plate m59 and my latest silver polish find:


Don’t forget to take a look at Lacquer Link Love for 01/22/2010 over at Polishswatches!

>After yesterdays mani, which frustrated me a bit, I did another mani and I was pleased with it. It started off as blank OPI Chick Flick Cherry, 3 coats. I could have probably gotten away with 2, though.
Taken with flash:


Then I stamped the tips with special black polish and lace design from m71. This is my first time using this plate, I always save things I love for better times =) Sigh… Anyway, it turned pretty decent, as I’m getting the hang of aligning the designs horizontally. Then I decorated my ring fingers with red heart rhinestones. I wanted to add a golden fishnet design to the bottom, also from m71, but the pattern is so tiny, that it dried in a milisecond and didn’t wanna stamp. Normally it would, but I used China Glaze 2030 for the stamping, and I had to align it so that it wouldn’t overlap the black tip design, and that took me a couple of seconds which made such a delicate design unable to transfer. So I switched to m74, and tried it with the blossoms.


Some blossoms are not whole, I know, but working in a tight space, not trying to overlap, makes stamping more difficult =) And they don’t draw too much attention on the nail.


I really like my mani this time, so it’s going to stay until it chips =)
By the way, I just realized that the color combination is just like powerlifterchick‘s Asian inspired manicure! OMG, talk about subliminal! (I loved that mani very much =)))

>This is one Konadicure I loved very much and supported for many days. It was actually my birthday mani in July. Base coat is China Glaze Tinsel, stamped with Konad special polish in black & design from plate m74.
