Fall Foliage

Hi everyone!
It's certainly feeling like Fall out there!  I decided to try a design in honor of this beautiful season.

I started with the rich gold of Revlon Hypnotize.  The leaf design is from Cisi & Sisi 03.  I tried several different greens for stamping and finally settled on Sally Hansen Insta Dri Jumpin' Jade.  Insta Dris just stamp so well, and I wanted a bold outline that I could fill in.

For the various leaf colors, I just riffled through polishes for my sheerest red, orange and green.  I couldn't find my top coat, so I used my top coat with spectra-flair, which turned out to be a great addition.

Hope your autumn is a colorful one, Konaddicts!  Thanks for dropping by!

Fuchsia Hearts

Hi everyone!
This is simple mani I did earlier in the summer.  There's simple stamping on three fingers and a nail decal on two.

The color is NYC Greenwich Village, a lovely hot pink, along with black and silver.  I used Pueen 41 for the full nail pattern and Cici and Sisi 02 for the decal.

Easy - and fun!  Thanks for stopping by, Konaddicts!

Glitter Blush

Hello, everyone!
It's been a while since my last post, but I'm glad to have a chance to share my glittery nails!

The Born Pretty Store has a gorgeous set of polishes for a glitter gradient.  I didn't want to order it, because it's sometimes hard to justify buying more polishes, but I couldn't resist.  In the meantime, though I tried to see if I could recreate the look with polishes that I already had.

I used Revlon Diamond Texture, Sally Hansen Strobe Light, and Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink.

What do you think, Konaddicts?  It's a lot of sparkle!  I can't wait to try this out again when my Born Pretty polish set arrives!

A Walk on the Wild Side

Hello, everyone!
Well, my laptop went kaput (argh!), so I'm making this post with my phone. So far, so good....

This mani was inspired by a trip to the zoo.  Our local zoo has a new elephant calf.  Isn't she cute?

I LOVE elephants, so I decided that now would be a good time to try out wild manicure.

For this mani, I started with BMC Nail Lacquer 15.  I used the beautiful Revlon Top Speed Charmed for the orange gradient.  I used BMC Nail Lacquer 13 for both the stamping and the black stripe of "ground".  I wish I had taken pictures ASAP (to avoid the nail line), but I was completely sidelined by my ailing laptop.

For the stamping, I used a number of plates.  The tree and "brush" are from RA-115 and BM-315.  The elephants and accidentally enormous giraffe-a-saurus are from Mash 66, Gals GA32, and Gals GA46.

Thanks for reading, Konaddicts!  Wish me luck with my laptop!

Glitter Gradient

Hello, everyone!
It's been a long time since I've had a moment to post!  I just love how this glitter gradient turned out!

This is a gradient of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Raspberry Rave and Vivid Lacquer Late Bloomer. I am still really loving my Cici & Sisi plates.  This time, I used Cici & Sisi 05 and Sally Hansen Insta Dri Urgent Orchid for the stamping.

Thanks for stopping by, Konaddicts!  Is anyone else amazed that Fall is already here?!
