You’ll remember that not long ago, I bought the brand new Bundle Monster image plate set. The two owl designs made it a must-have for me.
To make China Glaze Elephant Walk more my style, I turned them into Owl Nails with the help of Bundle Monster Image Plate BM-309.
After these cuties were on my nails, I fell in love with the manicure. And I appreciated the grey as the base colour.
I painted the tips of my nails black with China Glaze Liquid Leather so that the owls would have something to stand on.
If you look really closely at the cute owl on my middle finger, you’ll see that he’s a bit of a show-off. While all the others have their feet on the ground, he’s balancing himself on just one leg! What an attention-seeker!
Hehe, I also like how the owls look like they’re either wearing monocles or they have shiners!
Yesterday I flossed China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini on here, but if you read the post, you knew that I put something on top.
Well, this is what I did! Of course, since it’s such an in-your-face, high-contrast manicure, I loved it!
Even though the yellow solo was flashy, I had to put it ‘over the top’ like Steven Tyler kept saying on American Idol this week.
What do you think of this Black & Yellow Konadicure (or…BundleMonstericure)?
Does it make you think of that Black and Yellow song? Or does it remind you of bumblebees who vandalized the beehive? (It reminds me of both.)
Yesterday, I shared my thoughts with you on OPI I’m All Ears from the Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection. Although it was like, it wasn’t love.
So, what did I do? I Konaded the *beep* out of it. Here are Pink & Black Zebra Nails!
I turned to my tried-and-true full-nail Konad image plate m57. The zebra print never lets me down. Even when I’ve used it over a polish I didn’t care for, it turns it into a winning manicure for me that I enjoy wearing.
Haha, maybe it’s a cop-out because I’m sure you all have seen this zebra print a bazillion times. It’s nothing revolutionary now. But, it just goes to show you what a must-have the Konad m57 image plate is! If you don’t already have it, get it!
Four-leaf clovers, horseshoes, and poor little rabbits’ paws are all considered to be good-luck charms.
While I do believe that some people are graced with good luck in certain situations, I don’t believe that carrying around these ‘charms’ does anything except calm your nerves. (That being said, a couple of years ago, I dressed up as Lady Luck for Hallowe’en and won first place for Best Female Costume.)
The only kind of lucky charm that I enjoy is the edible kind – the Lucky Charms cereal…hehe!
To honour St. Patrick’s Day in advance, I decided to do these easy Shamrock Nails.
Why the fishnet design? Why not? I thought having the shamrocks on all the nails would just be boring, and I remembered how much I loved the fishnet pattern the first time I tried it over a red polish.
Looking back now, though, I wish that I did the same design on my thumb’s nail for all of my fingers. I like the combination of the shamrock and the fishnet on the same nail.
I was craving a funky manicure, but I didn’t have time to spend on freehand nail art. For times like these, nail stamping comes to the rescue like a caped, lacquered crusader.
To create this Black & Blue Konadicure, I used Essie Lapis of Luxury, which I’ve been dying to try and the trippy full-nail pattern on Konad Image Plate m78.
As you can see, I was in quite a hurry, so the stamping is a bit fuzzy, but in real life (when your nails aren’t blown up to such a large size), the imperfections didn’t show as much.
There are tons of people who are so much better at nail stamping than I am, but the finished look was exactly what I was going for, flaws and all.
Years ago, Justin Timberlake thought that he was bringing sexy back. Yeah right – he can’t hold a candle to Chanel Peridot or any other multichrome nail polish, for that matter!
You’ll remember that I sported this sexy beast a while ago and gushed in a blog post about how it was the first Chanel anything I’ve ever owned. (It still is.)
This time I wore it, I decided to give it a little makeover. Since I love argyle and wanted to do a look that combined posh with preppy, I thought it was only appropriate to do a Chanel Peridot Argyle Konadicure using Konad Image Plate m60.
As you can see, I goofed up the stamping on the index finger, but it didn’t really bother me because the overall look was exactly what I was going for – tacky! Seriously, sometimes tacky things make you smile like nothing else, and I needed something to smile about. Done and done!
It almost has a snakeskin feel to it, and as much as I dislike snakes, I really like the patterns on their skin.
