A few weeks ago in a post I mentioned that my friends and I were going to start doing Konad night once a week. We've been doing a good job getting together every Thursday. We've only missed one so far. We almost missed it again last week because I was sick for a few days. We cancelled it but ended up doing Konad night on Friday instead.
Anyway, this is actually from the first time we did Konad night. Now you know how far behind I am in posting pictures! I used Essie Splash of Grenadine, Konad white polish and image plate m26. At the time, I didn't own this plate and borrowed my friend's. I ended up liking the plate so much, I bought my own a few days after :) Luckily, I live about 15 minutes away from a store that sells konad. The only time I ordered online was the first time I bought my Konad set. After that, I looked at the Konad website and found a store called JK Emporium in Torrance, CA. I've been going there for over a year now and I love going there. The guy that's usually there is really friendly and very helpful. When a plate you want is out of stock, he'll order it right way and you'll have it within a few days. I also really like the fact that I can see the actual plates and go home with it if I decide to buy it! No waiting for it to be mailed! So if you live in the area, you should go there to buy your plates and polishes :)
Ok, that's all for now. I'll be back next week with another post <3

This design was inspired by Deniz from Emerald Sparkled. I loved how she applied a dot of color underneath the stamped flower. A few weeks ago, I knew that I wanted to use China Glaze’s For Audrey and stamp with Sally Hansen’s Fairy Teal but didn’t know which Konad plate to use. After playing around with a few plates, I thought of the manicure Deniz did and tried it out. This is what I ended up with ...
Instead of stamping with Fairy Teal, I used it as the color of the flower and stamped with white (the flower is from plate m76). I also placed the flower at the corners of my nails rather than in the middle. It turned out to be one of my favorites! Thanks Deniz for the inspiration! I love your blog! :)
