First up, thank you Brooke for the link! :)

This is from a few weeks back, using a Skin Food pink, 3 coats, plus Konad white SP using the fishnet stockings design from plate m57.

The pink was closer to the first 2 pictures than the last. :)

OPI are releasing You Don’t Know Jacques in MATTE. :D I am so ridiculously excited.

Details on more colours here.

Update on the polishes, they’ve all arrived pretty much in one piece, (except for the abovementioned YDKJ, which unfortunately leaked a fair bit!), and it’s actually made painting my nails that much harder, because I have to sit around and try on about 5 different colours before I can actually choose just one! There’ve been a couple of days when I’ve gone out with 5 different colours, finishes, brands, you name it, just because the need to make a choice completely defeated me. :p

Anyway! Some shots of a Skin Food taupe with silver shimmer that I love:

Like I said, I do really like the colour, but the wear on it isn’t so good. This is 3 coats plus Seche, and it succumbs to a lot of tip pull. Still, it’s pretty enough that I’ve worn it thrice now even with those issues.

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
