So the other day I painted Jayme’s nails. We booked our favourite study room in uni (this is not an oxymoron, it has a gorgeous view, and it’s penthouse-like!), kicking out some folk who were actually studying in it in order to do our nails. (At least we could appreciate the view, I suppose, since we weren’t supposed to have our noses buried in books. :p)

The base is a Skin Foods pink, unfortunately they don’t do colour names, it’s a light-medium pink that needed three coats. It’s really pretty though, and sells for S$5.90 (US$4) at Skin Foods stores. Konaded over with Konad special polish in black with the zebra/tiger stripes design from plate m57. Without topcoat because I forgot to bring it. Oops.

They’re not the best photos I’m afraid, taken on the go where the light wasn’t too good.

Poised prettily over a Cafe Iguana menu. Mmm, margaritas.

You can see my konad-ing technique is still a work in progress, there are a number of gaps etc.

And just for fun, one taken with my Blackberry, with the aim of convincing people that I painted this by hand. :D
