Just a couple of shots of some experimental designs I fiddled around with the other day. The first two are on my cousin, aka my little guinea pig.

Experimental 1

L-R: one coat of Orly Bon Bon, Color Club Lazer Pink stamped with Konad White SP, some random white stamped with Konad Black SP, Color Club Lazer Pink stamped with Konad Black SP. I love the ring finger, I may have to replicate that one day!

Experimental 2L-R: Orly Platinum stamped with a Bourjois red, the Bourjois red on its own, Orly Bon Bon stamped with OPI Parlez-vous OPI?, Color Club Worth The Risque stamped with Manglaze The Death Tar.

I love the index finger, though I may be biased as that’s my favourite Konad stamp. It is now referred to as the cheongsam design, perfect for Chinese New Year! :p

Mine were slightly more monochromatic. They were originally just experiments, but I decided to wear them out for a few days, as they did kind of match each other!

Experimental 3L-R: Color Club Revvvolution stamped with Manglaze The Death Tar, Manglaze The Death Tar stamped with Orly Platinum, Manglaze The Death Tar stamped with Color Club Revvvolution, Manglaze The Death Tar stamped with Color Club Worth The Risque.

Experimental 4L-R: Manglaze TDT, Manglaze TDT tipped with Color Club Worth the Risque, Manglaze TDT stamped with a random Missha polish, same as ring finger but with topcoat, Manglaze TDT stamped with Color Club Worth the Risque.

Just¬† a couple of shots of Color Club Vintage Couture. I really like this colour, but man the application almost killed me. I’m thinking that if Helen can have temperature-related application issues at 26C, then it’s very likely that the daily 30C temperatures here are going to have some effect on my poor polishes. Sigh. Alternatively, it could be due to the pale pastel streaky effect.¬† Either way I soldiered on, and managed to get them looking fairly decent.. if you don’t look too closely!

Didn’t konad over it because I couldn’t face repainting it if I screwed up.

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. :)

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.

Zebra Konad 3

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
