My new dress

Whenever I buy new clothes, the first thing that comes on my mind I have a polish to match? Same with my new dress. I bought it for summer and it has three colors, black, white and a mint green or a turquoise. Call it what you want :) I was thinking what mani would best match with it and came with this:

Here is the mani with a detail of the dress. The color of the polish is not 100% same as the dress but still very close. I love this mani. I used:
Color Club Black
Misa Heaven White
Orly Gumdrop

New Trend Konad Stamping Nail Art

The Konad stamping nail art kit has been on my wish list for quite some time now. After browsing through their online store, I've been scouting where I could the kit locally. I got lucky and found a local store that exclusively distributes Konad products. I got myself a Konad stamping nail art personal kit that includes the following: 2 5ml Konad special nail polish, 1 top coat, 1 image plate, a stamper, and a scraper.

Konad has made it easier for nail enthusiasts like myself to decorate nails through their stamping nail art kit. Konad stamping nail art lets you design your nails with so much variety. You can change the design of your nails as often as you like, with so many designs to choose from! The personal kit allows you to create fabulous nails on your own without visiting a nail salon. It's cheaper than going to a nail salon and having your nail art done by a professional. With Konad stamping kit, you can make your nails look great by yourself!

Here's a step by step procedure on how to do your own stamping nail art:

1. Choose the nail art design from any of Konad's image templates.

2. Apply Konad's special nail polish over the design that you chose. Make sure that you cover the entire design.

3. Scrape across the image plate with the scraper to remove excess polish. I don't have a Konad template holder yet but any flat stable surface seems to do just fine. Make sure you scrape until the edge of the plate so that your stamper will only pick up the design.

4. Press the stamper firmly over the design.

5. Stamp firmly the image on your nail with a gentle rolling motion or by simply pressing it down. Before stamping, you can make sure that you've picked up the design entirely and neatly. It's important that you stamp the design as quickly as you can to your nail before it dries.

Orly It´s Up To Blue with Konad

Today´s post is a continuation of yesterday´s turquoise eyeshadow post. I have a really nice belt, that is turquouise and also has purple in it. So I tried to do a matching mani :) I used my favourite Orly polish as a base (I only have the mini version and I MUST get the normal size) and for stamping I used China Glaze Harmony and Konad plate M64. I love it!

Dnešní příspěvek navazuje na včerejší tyrkysovou vlnu. Minulé léto jsem si koupila moc hezký pásek, který je tyrkysový, částečně prošívaný fialovou. Zkusila jsem teda udělat podobné nehtíky :) Jako základ jsem použila svůj nejoblíbenější lak od Orly (mám ho jen v mini verzi, takže si MUSÍM koupit plnou velikost) a na razítkování China Glaze Harmony a Konad destičku M64. Moc se mi výsledek líbí!

I have recently fell in love with light blue creme polishes. So this one is another of my latest hauls. I got it real cheap on ebay. I was scared about the application but no problems, two coats were just fine! Love the bottle and the silly plastic ring that goes with it. This has a bit more green than the other I own but don´t worry I will have a comparison for you :)
