E.l.f. Metallic Orange Konad + FB page!

Out of all the Elf polishes I got from my aunt awhile back, this one was the one I wasn't quite sure about. I prefer to wear cool toned polishes over warm ones and in my experience orange doesn't look very good on me. This one really impressed me though. It's a metallic pumpkin orange with a pink glow to it. It's really hard to describe and unfortunately my pictures failed to capture it. You can kind of see it in a few of the pictures. I wanted to do some Konad so I used plate S06 and stamped a diagonal line pattern on my nails.

Despite how much I love this colour, it was somewhat streaky and sheer. Three coats evened it out nicely though. I wanted to take a picture of this without Konad but by the time I remembered I had already stamped my left hand! So here is a somewhat awkward picture of my right hand. I'm pretty sure I'll never be photographing my right hand again.. I didn't even notice the bad chip on the middle finger so excuse that.

Pink flash still didn't show up but atleast you can see the pretty pumpkin orange colour! I'm holding my teal-ish pants in that picture, I thought it complemented the orange nicely.

I made a page on facebook! Feel free to "like" the page if you have a facebook. I thought it would be cool to get to talk to you without writing a blog post. I'm in the process of uploading all my current pictures on there and feel free to share your own manicures as well. =)

Peace and Love,


  1. Love it! It's very fall-ish. :) I need to look into those Konad thingies, I've never tried them before. Oh, and I joined your FB page :D

  2. @Annamax - Konad is awesome and pretty easy once you get the hang of it! I order mine from wowsocool.com. Thanks for joining my facebook page! =)

  3. Wow, that chipped fassst.
    Mani looks great, colours alright, the Konad made it look better c:

  4. @AnnKiins - Actually I had this on for 3 days so it didn't too fast. Also my right hand tends to get tip wear and chips faster.

  5. That does look like a nice orange.
