Another night, I just couldn't decide......

Today was a VERY long day. I didn't get much time at home tonight to do a mani, and the little time I had, I just couldn't decided what to do. I actually had another mani started and just quit in the middle, because I wasn't feeling it, lol. My brother, sister in-law and my niece and nephew are in town and I'm just soooo happy I get to spend time with them. It's fairly rare, since we don't live near one another. So my lack of time, and creativity is 100% worth it!!  Anyways, sorry for the babbling, here is what I settled on. I used OPI La Paz-itively Matte, Claires 14 Karats and Sinfuls Black on Black.



OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte, all alone



Then with Claire's 14 Karats for the Konad




I decided to add a coat of SV, so bye bye matte!



And, of course, black tips.




















So I really hope you guys don't mind all my pictures, I just can never pick 1 or 2, and like to show you guys how my mani evolves, and not just the finished product. Please, though, let me know if I include too many pics, I mean after all, this blog is for you!! Thanks, XOXO

  2. I LOVE this mani! Great colors. :-) I do the same thing with pictures. I can't ever seem to just pick a couple. LOL! I personally, like looking at lots of pics. so I'm good with it. ;-)

    By the way, I have to ask....where in Kansas are you from? I live in KS and have all my life. I live in Olathe now, but I grew up in a small town called Osawatomie. I also lived in Lawrence for a few years, as I went to KU. Anyway, just thought I'd ask. Hope that's okay. I'm also AliLindsey on MUA. :-)

  23. WOW--can't believe you did this with sapped creativity. Beautiful. Would've been my BEST mani ever. The series of pics is very interesting--better than just one. I think you should share your talent on facebook.

  25. I love all your konad manis and funky frenchs. It would be great if you could mention what colors/brands/formulas you prefer for stamping or other effects. Thanks!

    Thanks Kim (sis)! Maybe one day I'll move on to sharing with my Facebook friends, lol.

    As for the polishes I prefer to use for Konading. That's a great idea, maybe soon I will do a post about them.

  29. Hey Erika.

    Your work is great. I do such things too but in Germany where i life this things are not so colored. The people like more things wich are simply. It's perfekt. Please do not stop doing this.

    Best whishes

  30. Lucija, Thank you so much, you're too sweet! Oh, I need fun manis in my life, and will never stop, unless you guys stop reading my blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. We'll never stop reading your blog :)

    I second the "good for Konad polish" post idea. I'd rather buy polishes that I can use as base colour and konading, instead of just stamping like the Konad Special Polishes.

  32. Aww, thank you Diamond!! I will def be doing a post soon, that lists my fave Konading polishes.

  33. can you tell me whcih konad plate this design was from? I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You should start your own business doing these for people. You could make a ton!! :)

  35. I love lots of pics. keep it up.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Which Konad plate is this one? I couldn't find it when I looked online. How do you get your nails so shiny like glass. I use SV too but mine never look THAT glassy! Your nails are SO beautiful!
