Some manis I have done previously
I have a wedding to go to this weekend and will be getting boring French Tips done for that, so I won't get a chance to do a cool mani like I normally do. So to make up for that, I thought I might post some photos of some manis I have done in the last few weeks.
I should warn you now that the photo quality is not fantastic. The pics were taken with my phone primarily to show one of my friends what I had done. The lighting is also not so awesome as most of them were taken at my desk at work. But anyway, here then come, in all their dodgy glory.
Ok, so this is what I am currently rocking, although it is somewhat chipped. However I have gotten about 5 days wear out of this one.
I love it, it reminds me a little of snake skin to tell you the truth.
The colour is 3 coats of China Glaze Paper Chasing with Konad Black and the use of templates m57 for the pattern and m19 for the tips.
I do realise it is upside down, but for once my right hand turned out better then my left. Go figure.
Also, the lighting for this makes the green look much darker than it actually is. I will have to swatch this one in better lighting. Actually, I will do that for all these as the lighting is just atrocious on these.
This one was Zoya Reece with Konad White and template m24. This lighting really does not do this polish justice. It is a stunning pink with a very strong gold shimmer to it. It looked fabulous.
This was Zoya Isla which is one of my current favourite colours, however that changes pretty often. Again with Konad Black on templates m57 and m19. This mani had a very predatory feel to it. I loved it.
This one was my first venture into the world of Konad, which I will detail more in later posts. I tried to do tips, as you can see from the thumb and second finger and failed miserably, so I gave up and put the design on different parts and actually loved the effect in the end.
This is one of my oldest nail polishes, so old that you can barely see the label on the bottle. Its Revlon Super Top Speed Chrome in 311, whatever that means. Then I put some Konad White over top using template m44. Not to shabby for a first foray, even if I do say so myself.
So that's all I have for you today. Maybe I'll post my wedding toenails for you. I will be using the fabulous Zoya Yasmeen and of course some Konad to liven things up. I'm not sure if you can tell I'm a Konad addict just yet.
Anyway, until next time, have a fabulously awesome day!
