Nails Inc Charlotte Street Fauxnad

It’s been a while since I’ve worn gray so I figured that would be a nice little change. I just love Nails Inc: they apply so well! Too bad they’re a) in the UK and b) way too expensive 😦

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patty’s day is a day of celebration, green beer, and green nails! This is one of my favorite holidays for nail art (Easter is another fun one too!). Technically this is not a 3 or 4 leaf clover, but the design sort of reminded me of it. I don’t think Konad has a real St. Patty’s day plate (yet). This is as close as it gets for now:

Hope y’ all have a safe and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Remember to always have a designated driver :)!

Nails Inc Charlotte Street Konad

When I did the Coraline Scottish Terrier Konad with Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal, I mentioned putting the Scotty on top of a Houndstooth Konad (appropriate, right?) One thing I learned from this experiment is that lighter Konad Special polish colors don’t go over dark colors well. Here is how the white Scotty turned out:

Then I decided to use plain black: much better.

I figured matte would be cool too! Which one do you like better? Matte, or not matte?

Merry Christmas!

Besides Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Independence day, I don’t think I would ever wear such a red nail polish! I’m just not a red creme kind of person. So I added some green glitter (which seems to make everything better) and a “gift” bow as the Christmas ‘nad. Hopefully all y’all had a fun Christmas 🙂

Nails Inc Summer Glow Konad

Nails Inc is one of my favorite brands because of their unique colors. This one reminds me a lot of RBL’s Starfish Patrick (but this one is more creme than jellyish). I figured the ever so popular blue and orange contrast would look great.

Nails Inc Brick Lane Konad

Yellow and gray is one of my favorite ‘nad combos! I think I like wearing yellow. However, I feel a little uncomfortable when I wear it because it’s so bright. That’s why I like I add a gray full-pattern Konad on yellow.

Tip of the day: If you cannot get your ‘nad image to pick up on your stamper, try to gently file your stamper and make sure you don’t touch the stamper with your fingers. The oils from your skin can make your stamper less “sticky” than you need to pick up the ‘nad image.
