This weekend I had to opportunity to do some konading on my mom and sister. I thought you all might be interested in seeing the results of our couple of hours of nail painting we did :)

First up we have my little sister Brandi's nails:

I forgot the name of the China Glaze I used for the base color. It is a dark pink/magenta color. And then we used the hounds tooth pattern and stamped her nails in gold using China Glaze - Passion.

This was the original koni we did, but Brandi wasn't too fond of the light lavender base color, so this one was removed. I used China Glaze - Agent Lavender for the base color and then stamped the swirl pattern using China Glaze - LOL.

Next up is my mom's toes. We added a simple design to her already painted toes. The base color on the toes is Sally Hansen Salon - Pick a Pink. The color I used to stamp was China Glaze - Passion.

Then for my mom's hands I got to pick the colors and the stamps!!! I thought purple and gold would be perfect, lol!! I think my mom was starting to get a little worried at this point, of course I assured her that she could come back in a few days if she didn't like it and we would do something she liked on her nails.

Despite my best efforts (lol - just kidding) this really turned out nice!! The base color is China Glaze - LOL and the stamped butterflies design is done in China Glaze - Passion.

After all that - I didn't even feel like doing my own nails - lol!

I wouldn't feel like doing my own nails either after that either! I love the swirl pattern, it looks awesome! You should totally start charging! LOL!

Vanessa said...

I agree with Nessa, you should start charging :)
I like all of them!
Are your sis and mom intrigued by nail art?

Pixie said...

Wow, love them all. Fantastic!

Brooke said...

NESSA - We did spend at least 2 hours doing nails - lol. I should start charging, huh!

VANESSA - I think they like it when I do it to them, but other than that, not really. My little sister maybe. I might be converting my mom though, she was awfully pleased with her toes.

PIXIE - Thanks! Are you next??

Lucy said...

Beautiful job on all nails. I love the manicure your sister didn't care for. Great job.

Brooke said...

LUCY - Thank you. I liked that one too, but I think the lavender was just to light for her tastes.
