Simple Konad and some kitten pics!


I've just finished my 2nd konad attempt :) I think it's alot better this time. Only a couple of mistakes!

I wanted a simple look that could be worn to meetings and things like that.

This is just 2 coats of Nails Inc South Molten Street with the the konad french tip from plate m56. As you can see it's a VERY pale pink but it does the job of covering up the yellow staining :)

I have decided to cut my nails after this manicure comes off. Just not sure how much yet... I may chop them really short and start again purely because that will get rid of some of the yellowing! I think I've mentioned before that I'm very lucky in that my nails grown VERY fast so it won't take long for them to grow back.
Speaking of fast growing things, my hair also grows incredibly fast. That would be ok if I wore my hair long but I prefer short styles so in an ideal world I need to get my hair done every 6 weeks. Unfortunately my finances don't allow for this so I spend alot of time complaining about my hair! Usually Maz gets fed up and books me an appointment as a surprise :) Another issue is that although I've been in Manchester well over a year now I still go to my hairdressers 3 hours away in my hometown of Newbury! It's difficult to find a good hairdresser!
As for how fast my leg hair grows....don't even get me started!! ;)
Anyway enough of that tangent. I am going to watch the new Harry Potter tomorrow evening with some friends. I'm not a die hard Potter fan but we got a really good deal for film and dinner so I couldn't say no. I never usually go to see films on their first nights out because I hate crowds but I'm sure it will be fun! I will be doing my nails for it later :)
Enough of my are some Barnaby pictures for those cat lovers out there :)

Sleeping in the tissue box (or should I say trying to sleep despite the annoying person with the annoying camera disturbing him!) -

With Bobo our other cat. She's 2 and a half and likes to play even more than Barnaby does!

We thought it'd take a while for Bobo to accept Barnaby but as you can see she's not exactly hating him :) She hissed for about the first day but since then they've been chasing each other all over the place.

We had to take Barnaby to the vet yesterday as he kept being sick and because he's so little I was concerned about dehydration. He's fine but they weighed him when he was there and he's only 0.5kg!! He's 9 weeks now and should be having his vaccinations but he's too small! I think he must have been the runt of the litter. He eats like a horse though so I don't think it'll be long before he's big enough ;)
Have to say though, nothing funnier than seeing a 0.5kg kitten chasing a 3.5kg cat!!

Hi, I'm Steph, and I just started reading your blog. =]

I really like the Konad design on your nails. It's really pretty! You're cats are adorable!

Lucy said...

Your nails look so gorgeous. You did a fantstic job with the Konad. I understand about the yellow. I couldn't cut my nails short enough to get the yellow out. I just have to keep the polish on. Barnaby is adorable. Bobo is pretty also. I had a cat with the same coloring. When I used to have cats and bought a new one in they would all be fine with each other. They would hiss at first but eventually it would all work out. They all ate out of the same bowl also. It's so fun to watch the cats playing with each other.

You did an amazing job with the konad! I'm so jealous lol. Oooh I hope you have a good time at the movies tomorrow, I am a totally nerdy die hard fan myself so yeah. Oh maybe I'll do a mani for it too! Anyway, my hair grows fast too so I feel your pain. Your kitty is so adorable, they look like they get along ok!

You're from Newbury? Are you kidding?? Guess where I live?

Do you think we know each other/have anyone in common? I bet we do - small town and all that. OMG!!

And....fab Konad and gorgeous kitties!

Nicole said...

That konad is gorgeous! I definitely want that pattern myself. It looks adorable on you. Am really curious to see those nails short! LOL! I'm doing mine today, I had a ring finger break at work, completely jagged.
Awww, that first pic is amazing! It is seriously cool. He's such a cutie pie!

Danielle said...

Danielle and Kae - I am running out of time to do a decent mani for the film!! I will post whatever I end up wearing though :)

I really wish I could answer people individually on this!
