Hi, everyone! This awesome design from CICI & SISI 01 was the deal sealer for the Cisis & Sisi plate set. I love this design and I love how this mani looks - even though it was a super easy and quick to do.
I started with Insta Dri Mango Team and sponged with sponged with Wet n Wild Lavender Creme, Kleancolor Pastel Purple, and Kleancolor Lavenbaby. I stamped the full nail design with Milani Black Magic (which stamps well and doesn't smear - why do I keep forgetting about this gem?) and dotted with Essie No Place Like Chrome.
It looks like one of those fun designs I used to create with my Spriograph! Anyone remember that toy?
So far, I'm loving these plates! I can't wait to try out new images.
BTW: A huge shout out and thank you to Nail Art Canada for sending me a nail plate Valentine! They were kind enough to send a plate from the Bundle Monster Holiday plate set - one I don't already have! Yahoo!
Thanks for reading, Konaddicts!

Hello, everyone! Today's mani is the other side of the coin - because not all love stories end in hearts and flowers. This is Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red topped with two coats of the subtle, glitter NYC Broadway Burgundy. I stamped the pattern with Winstonia W203 using My Online Shop Special Polish in Black. For the accent nail,I used a pattern from Messy Mansion MM03 and filled in the design around the heart with black. I painted my "break" in with a nail brush.
Hope you've got your Valentine's cupcakes baked and ready to go! Thanks for stopping by!

So many Valentine's images, so little time! :)
Today I'm wearing a simple combination - Essie Fiji as a background stamped with Love My Nails Berry Nice. I used Konad M95 for the full nail hearts (eek! I love these!). For the accents, I used the heart from Messy Mansion MM03 and stamped the children and cupid in black with Winstonia W102.
Hope you're having a great Valentine week, Konaddicts!

Hello, everyone! We have a sunny day today - very exciting after all the moody winter weather we've been having. Today, I'm wearing a very easy, super simple two-color manicure. This is L'oreal Complete Salon Manicure First Kiss stamped with NYC French White Tip. The plate is the classic Konad M60. It's simple and sweet, perfect preparation for Valentine's Day!
I hope you're having sun - and love - wherever you are, Konaddicts! I think I'm going to try out my Messy Mansion plate with conversation hearts for Valentine's Day, so I'll be sure to let you know how it turns out!
