I love Konad and I don't care who knows either :)

My wonderful blogger buddy Pixie of Polish Pixie was so tired of hearing me make comments about her konad, and staring at her konad, even a little drooling over her konad, that she finally said enough is enough! She sent me my very konad so I would quit talking about hers all the time.

After my quick dazzle dry manicure I had so much extra time, I thought it was as good a time as any to pop my konad cherry! I am so pleased with the results! I did a couple of practice nails before I started my dazzle dry mani, so I had an idea of how to do it before I did the real thing. I only messed up one nail, my pinkie. Guess I got a little excited and couldn't wait a few minutes more before putting on my top coat - whoops!

Look up there! I even took a picture of my other hand so you all could see how easy konad is to use!

I forgot to look and see what plate I picked - sorry, my first time with the konad had me all shook up. But when I saw those little open dots on the top and bottom I new I needed to add a little sumpin sumpin - so I placed a gold, round sequin on each nail. So tell me, what do ya'll think about my konad skills?

NOTE TO PIXIE: rest assured, I will no longer harass your konad - I gots me my own now thanks to you :)

Cool! Now you'll need to get a bunch of the other's addictive. You did really well for your first Konad! Mine was soo messed up- I think I got it everywhere but on my nails!

Great job! I have some (bad) pics of my first Konad attempt & let me tell you, while it was easier than I expected, mine didn't come out nearly as nice as yours.

A note on putting on top coat - I have found the black special polish to be the worst for streaking. All of the other colors I have, and even the Romantiques I have used, you can put on top coat just about right away no problem, but as you discovered, the trick is to just give the black a few extra minutes to dry & it's all good.

That looks fantastic. Love the addition of the gold. You did an awesome job, girl!

You can still talk to my Konad if you want. I don't want it (her/him/them???) to miss you too much!

Your nails are looking great! They're so smooth, didn't you just get acrylics removed? What's your secret? I remember when I got mine taken off (years back) my nails were a rough mess! They can't have grown out that fast...right? Share! :)

Brooke said...

KAJSA - Exactly! :)

GLITTER - I already got me some plates picked out! I want that argyle one for sure :)

COLETTE - Thanks for the tips. I found it to be pretty easy, but I think maybe the full nail plates might be more dificult to use.

PIXIE - Thanks! The gold dots looked much better in person, I just couldnt capture it on camera for some reason.

ASAMI - Yes, I did just take off my acrylic nails. They are smooth, but what I did to get them that way probably wasn't the best thing to do, but I do it anyway! I use one of those buffing blocks and smooth out my nails. Without nail polish they look like crap, but in a few weeks they will start to look more healthy, but I totally don't recomend this, as it isn't the best thing for nails :#

Brooke said...

ASAMI - Also, they are sort of long because I soaked my nails off, which I was able to leave the length on them, but they are weak, so I don't know how long the length will last before they break, but I am trying to save them - keep your fingers crossed!
