Here are some pics of a Koni that I did yesterday. I used Sally Hansen - Golden Tourmaline for the base, China Glaze - Passion for the gold stamp color and konad plate # M9 for the belt stamp.

ELASHAW - Hi! Thank you for all the comments, I'm glad to see that you are enjoying this blog.

Yes I do have a couple of suggestions on some cheaper options for nail polish:
1) If you have a Sallys beauty supply near you, get their discount card! You save money on almost everything they sell there. It will cost you $5 and is good for a year, plus they give you a coupon for $5 off, so the card pays for itself.

2)Order your nail polish online! The place I suggest is - you can get China Glaze for around $2.50 ea, OPI's are around $4.00 ea, as well as several other name brand nail polishes as very low discounted prices. Shipping is usually around $8.00. Which really works out cheaper in the end if you order several polishes, even with shipping its cheaper than going to like Ulta or Beauty Brands to buy them.
3) I really like Sinful nail polish from Walgreens. They are $1.99 each, and there are a ton of colors to choose from.
4)Clearance - always always always check the clearance isle at places like Walgreens and Sallys. You can find really good nail polish discounted really cheap.

I hope one or all of these suggestions help you! If you need further assistance please don't hesitate to email me at

LUCY - Thank you, I thought that belt was too cute :)

Helen said...

Wow - $4.00 for an OPI? They can be up to £12, that's prob about $9.

That red is amazing, all spingly-spangly :0)

Brooke said...

HELEN - I know cheap right, unless you have to have them shipped intl. and that's where the big bucks come in. But yeah it's a steal compared to the $8.50 they usually cost at Ulta.

I love how sparkling this mani is.

Brooke said...

CLOCKWORK - This is a really cool sally hansen color. It actually has more of a holo look to it, but I didn't really capture it in my pics very well.

Velvet said...

Cool! Liking this a lot!

Brooke said...

VELVET - Thanks!

Alexlyndra said...

Wow, Golden Tourmaline is very beautiful. Cool Konad!

Brooke said...

ALEXLYNDRA - I was so lucky to find this polish at the dollar store, can you believe that?? I was so excited when I found it because I had just seen it on another blog and when I tried to find it online it was like $15!!
