Konad m51

Here's my first konad post!  Before I go further, let me explain how I first got hooked on konad...

So I was looking through xsparkage's videos on youtube, and ran across one with "konad" in the title, which I didn't recognize.  I clicked, got pointed to scrangie, and well, the rest is a happy history!
My inspiration came from Polish and Powder.  I used two coats of Wet n Wild in "Caribbean Frost" and stamped the flowers with plate m51in Wet n Wild "French White".  I topped it off with two coats of Pure Ice "Oh Baby!".  I was disappointed in how the flowers transferred, a little transparent, but the gorgeous base makes up for that.

My photography skills are slowly improving.  I still struggle with blurry images, but hey, this is much improved from my last post!



My Nails...Naked

Homework vs. blogosphere...hmm...I think it's obvious who won!

So here are my nails, minus any polish, basecoat, ect.  Feel self conscious about your own nails?  No one is perfect (ok, there's a few exceptions, Scrangie comes to mind for me).  I had an unfortunate encounter with a car door when I was younger, leaving my right hand middle finger not very aesthetic.  Pretty much, the nail grows crooked and the nuckle cuticle are weird shaped.  Hence all pictures will be taken of my left hand.

Now here's my good hand...

We can only change what we've been given to some extent.  Short fingers, fat fingers, crooked fingers...don't let them come between you and nail art (similar to the relationship to body shape and personal style).  Go for it!
