Matching new layout with KOTD

As I changed the layout of my blog, I thought it appropriate to find a suitable konadicure for it:). Over Oriflame base coat I applied 2 coats of OPI Strawberry margharita and stamped it with image from m61 and Konad special nail polish in pastel pink. At the end I put 1 coat of Essie g2g. Do you like the KOTD? Thanks for commenting

I feel somewhat wild today:) and my manicure resembles this. For base colour I used some Vollare mini nail polish (1 coat) over Oriflame base coat, then stamped leopard spots from m57 with Konad special nail polish in black. Afterwards, I coloured the middle of the spots with Vollare nail art pen in gold and added 1 coat of Essie g2g. Is it too wild? :P

KOTD pedicure

My last pedicure lasted more than 3 weeks, but today I had to change it, because I felt like trying something new:) Over Oriflame base coat I put 1 coat of Essence multi dimension 30 Late at night and stamped it with fish net image from m57 with Konad special nail polish in black. After that I waited for at least 1 hour, so the special polish was really dry and then applied 1 coat of Essie g2g. If you put the top coat too soon, it will smear the Konad black polish, it is also very advisable to apply it a bit more thickly. So here is the result, what do you think of it?? :)

Another KOTD

As I cooked today some huge amounts of stuffed peppers, I had to do my nails again. On Oriflame base coat I put 2 coats of OPI Oh... to be 25 again!, made a konadicure with Manhattan 301 limited edition and image plate 63. I finished with one coat of Essie g2g.

Hmm, I think I'm becoming addicted to nail polishes and konad. I used to do my nails every 4 days, or at least until the nail polish sticked to the nails and the tips weren't visible.

Here is today's konadicure:
s-he 370 (one coat over base coat), manhattan crazy colours 301 and m57

First double water marbling

As I am open to trying new things, I had to do water marbling too. For this marbling I used 3 OPI nail polishes. The shades used were: Alpine Snow, Nicole's Alert and Strawberry Margharita.

2nd KOTD

As I was going to the sea side, I had to do my feet too. This was also my second konad attempt.
At that time I only had 3 image plates.

My first pedicure with konad:
image plate m2, essence SYF purple magic, oriflame long wear nail polish black cherries

It was hard to capture the images on the nails with a camera, but in the direct sunshine the images were visible very clearly.

My first KOTD

I must say that before I became a member of a cosmetics forum ARS COSMETICA, I did not have a clue about nail polishes and different types of manicures at all, with help of this forum I enlarged my knowledge on nail polishes and on other cosmetics themes. At the beginning, the number of my nail polishes was somewhat small, well today it is a bit larger though and it is still growing.
It was this forum where I got to know konad, and you cannot imagine how excited I was when I got my first konad kit (special thanks goes to anchek, would not make it without you), although it was ''just'' the S-kit and two additional plates. So I had to try it out immediately. As I sent some of my konadicures to Kathleen from OC Nail Art, she encouraged me to do a blog of my own. First I will show you some of my previously made konadicures.

Here are the results of my first attempt:

I used image plate m8, some old oriflame black cherries nail polish and konad white nail polish
(Sorry for a bit bad quality of the picture, as I am still learing how to take better pics with nail polishes)
