french tip nails

Last week I felt like doing some sort of french tip to my nails. This is what I ended up with ..

I first applied 3 thin coats of China Glaze Fairy Dust at the tips, then used Konad white and plate m9. It looked a bit plain so I added a black flower from plate m4. I still wasn't satisfied. I wanted color so I decided to start over and use Misa Dirty, Sexy, Money as my base with a layer or 2 of Fairy Dust on top. So basically, its the same design as the previous one .. just different colors. Much better :)

first post

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I am addicted to nail polish ... and konad :P

I have always enjoyed wearing nail polish but my addiction to nail polish has rapidly grown over the last few months. I used to have, at most, 5 bottles of nail polish at a time. But since about May or June of this year, my stash has grown.  Not as big as other nail polish fanatics, but more than what I am used to haha.

Of course, buying my first konad set in July also contributed to my growing obsession.  As a result, my sister Sha and I are constantly doing our nails.  When we aren’t doing our nails, we’re looking at nail blogs checking out swatches and konad designed nails.  Visiting these blogs inspired us to start our own so that we too can share what we have done.

I made this account about 2 months ago but procrastinated then got busy with school about 2 weeks later.  Hopefully I’ll be able to post something up every once in a while.  Wish me luck! :)
