>Hi everyone! Due to a breakage, I cut all my nails down. I hate nails this short on myself, but I’m gonna have to bear with them until they grow out to a decent length.
Today the new konad plates showed up. I’m so happy about them! When the pictures were first released, none of them really caught my eye, but in time, they grew on me =) In the package were all eight plates, two Konad nail art pen and one Konad glitter nail art liner:

Today’s nails are done with m77 and China Glaze Emotion over black:

Sorry for the short and boring post, breaking nails is really discouraging.

>This manicure will be inspired by the famous Louboutin pumps. This idea was first brought to life by Mayparis of Nails, Makeup and Music. She does some great designs, guys, you should definitely have a look at her blog!

The manicure is very simple, yet the effect is breathtaking. I started by applying 2 coats of black creme polish on my nails. Then a coat of Insta-Dri, in case I had to correct anything. Then I applied white on all the nails, or else the red wouldn’t show up. Finally went over the white using bright red creme polish, which is very translucent. And I was done =)

Everything was done using local brand polishes, but you can easily dupe this manicure using a generic black and red =)

>Since I’m not overflowing with creative juices these days, I decided to challenge myself with weekly themes. Some of these ideas are of my own and some are recreations of great ideas seen on other blogs. I won’t be doing themes every week, just when I’m planning on doing manicures that can be grouped together in a theme. Lately I was thinking about many black manicures, so the first theme is going to be “black”.
This is one of the manicures that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s by Konad & Me. It’s basically a simple manicure with black tips and silver polka dots on top. I love how simple, yet edgy it looks! So I gave it a try.
I started with two coats of sheer nude polish, basically any sheer nude will do. Then I freehanded the tips using a local brand black polish. Finally I stamped the dots from m45 in silver on top.

Yesterday I gave m19 several tries, and I’m proud to say that there is progress =)
