Hypnotize- Purple and Lime Green Konad

Hello! I don't know about you, but I'm happy its a three day weekend this week. =) Today I have a konad manicure using China Glaze Grape Pop, China Glaze Limelight, and Konad Special Polish Black. I wasn't sure what colours I wanted to paint my nails so I posted on facebook asking for recommendations. The first response I got was purple and lime green. I've seen people do one nail a different colour than the rest so I decided to try that. I chose Limelight as the accent colour and Grape Pop for the rest of my nails. Then I did a Konad design using plate S06. This design looks really funky and hypnotizing.

I've had a lot of people start noticing my nails lately. Just yesterday when I was picking up Chinese food for dinner the girl at the register asked me about them, and before long the whole wait staff wanted to see them. I have a hard time explaining Konad, or any other type of nail art stuff. Most people don't get the terms "image plate", "striper brush", "dotting tool", or "konad". I try my hardest to explain it but sometimes I feel ridiculous. Does anyone else run in to that problem? When I had my Pikachu manicure on the cash register at Hot Topic asked if I did the lines on my nails using a toothpick. (I'm terrible at using a toothpick..even when it comes to dotting!) I've been thinking about doing a post sharing my nail art/konad tips and what tools I use.. Would that be interesting to you? Let me know! =)

Thanks for reading!
Peace and Love,


  1. That's really cool! I didn't know they had 'special plates' and stuff to do nails! I really like those colors too! I was going to suggest the lime green, hot pink, bright orange...those kind of colors. Those are my favs!

  2. I love that plate.... and this mani = neon awesome! I as well have a hard time explaining to people that I do my own nails and what I use. Im to the point where I just tell people I am a makeup artist and that I can do their nails if they want a card.

  3. Haha I love this! I run into this problem. Especially when I water marble. I feel like I end up sounding insane by the end of it =P

  7. I work as a Hostess in a restaurant and at certain tines on the weekend there will be almost 4 of us there. The other girls have taken to picking my brain about how to get their nails so perfect and even going so far as to asking me to do theirs too! I keep trying to tell them that my nails are 8 months of practicing everyday but I don't think they hear me!

  8. Hey, COULD you do a blog on all the tools that you use to do your nail art? I always love how creative people can get and what they use to make designs.
