One young lady's attempt to master decent nail art!

I think this could be my favourite Konad Pattern August 13, 2009

I just love the daisy pattern from M41.  I’ve used it several times (Like Here ) and whenever I’m stuck for inspiration and want an effective but no-brainer Konad mani it’s totally my go-to-guy. This mani used the Stargazer Red polish I bought in my haul a few posts back, it has no number though so I’m not sure which polish it is. It’s pretty though.

I’ve just ordered a few polishes from Stargazer, mainly for a swap but I got myself one which you will be seeing swatched very soon.  Watch this space!  Thanks for reading!

 

Name change and a mani on my own fingers! :-O June 25, 2009

Okay so I have changed the name of my blog so that it falls in line with my lovely website where I’m selling all things nail art (well just Konad at the moment but Im working on it!), so I am no longer TS Nails, but am instead Flashy Nails! 

So I’ve been pretty busy setting up the site, my stock all came yesterday which was VERY exciting,  apart from at the point where I realised that Konad don’t name the polishes on ANY of the packaging, so I had to use a process of elimination to work out which blues and purples were which but I got there eventually.  (I was very thrown by the ‘Light Grey’ Princess Polish though as it looks pretty blue.)

Today I was at a funeral, my nana’s.  It was awful.  Last night when I came to do my nails, I had originally decided to do something pale and subtle and muted, but then I thought that in the last few months when I started doing my nails again, when I used to go see nana or take her out, I always used to show her them and she always had a comment (not always good as she didn’t always like them of course!) so I did them dark but still ‘me’.  So here they are:  I think they look fantastic, and I bumped into two of my friends today who were both wowed!

Sorry the pictures are a bit small, I used the WP upload feature and it’s made my images a bit screwy.  First pic is taken inside lit by some LED lights which are quite bluey, the other two were taken in daylight.  They’re all a touch blurry as I used my mobile phone camera.  I WILL get the hang of taking good pics to put on here, I promise!   Base colour is the VERY beautiful Hello Sailor! by Collection 2000, then it’s Konad Black Special Polish and the daisies off plate M41.  I love it.  It looks sort of like those holographic accessories you used to get a few years back where they were black and then underneath was all different neon colours.  I like it a lot!
