After the Blue Glitter, I was going to roadtest the green glitter, to complete my swatching of my birthday haul ( I don’t think the silver glitter really need

s any explanation).  However, the glitter is so dense in the Barry M polishes that it was scracthing the sufrace of my nails when I was removing it.  And, to be honest, I didn’t fancy having the hassle in another two days of trying to remove it.  So, I’ve taken a little step away from the glitters for now, and decided on something else. 

I’m sure what first led me to finding Konad was a web search for ‘Paisley nail art’ and if I recall rightly it led me to an image of someone’s nail art they’d done using Konad Plate M60 and then I became obsessed with Konad, and spent a lot of time looking at the fantastic inspirational resource that is Nevertoomuchglitter. Anyway, with some of the money I was kindly given for my birthday, I treated myself to some lovely Konad things from my website:

(sorry i did try to get them all next to each other but it wouldn’t do it!)
So my new manicure has been paisley and I used both the Deep Jungle and the Blue Pearl, over a base of one of my favourite EVER polishes, Collection 2000 Hello Sailor.  (I was going to buy a second bottle of this the other day so I have a spare for when it runs out but it didn’t look quite the right colour in the shops so I’m undecided as yet whether I should or not.)  I alternated the DJ and the BP on the fingers so I got to use both as I just couldn’t decide!  Sorry the clean up isn’t great on these:
I love this.  It’s Paisley, it’s one of my favourite base coats and it’s nice and subtle and summery!  yay!!
