Franken, Konad and Contest Update.


I am back from my pet sitting duties. The animals were all so cute! I will show you some pictures at some point :)

I didn't get anytime whilst I was there to do my nails as the puppies in particular were very demanding of attention!

So the following is a np I wore a couple of weeks ago.

This is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Platinum Frost mixed with Benefit's Curtain Call. Curtain Call is one of my favourite pigments to use as an eyeliner so I thought I'd see what it looked like as a nail polish.

It's actually a lot more purple in real life but I just couldn't capture it!

Then I thought I'd konad it using image plate m56 and China Glaze 2Nite.

Again this was really difficult to photograph as the effect is really subtle!

I must have had to take a million pictures just to get these ones :)

I hope you can see the effect ok. In real life I absolutely loved the result. I kept looking at it all the time!

I'm thinking of making a konad order this week... I really want some more image plates and different colour special polishes... I'm meant to be saving though..... ;)

I mentioned a contest a while ago to celebrate me hitting 50 followers. Well I will finally be putting it up in the next couple of days! I hope you guys like it and all enter :)

I am taking Barnaby for his jabs tonight. Poor little guy doesn't know what's coming!

It's only 18 days until my birthday!! Yayayayayayayaya! I don't know if I've mentioned that it's coming up.... if I haven't then it's a miracle.. I tend to get rather put it mildly. I think I've been counting down for about 2 months now... I must drive Maz mad!

Anyway enough from me!
Hope you all had a great weekend.

This looks good! You have great Konading skills Millie!

And I believe that birthdays are like our own little holidays - it's a time to celebrate yourself and appreciate your life!! :)

That Konad is so cute! I love how it's very subtle!

That's a stunning franken!

Very pretty manicure. I like that Konad design. Poor Barnaby. He has to remember that his namesake is a strong and brilliant detective. So Barnaby will have to keep up his side and be strong!

Judy - thanks! Yeah, I do tend to go overboard with my birthday :) I expect the whole world to stop and celebrate with me!!

gildedangel and nivipa - thank you so much!

Lucy - Haha! I love that you know the detective Barnaby was named after :) He (the cat) was indeed very strong and didn't make a fuss at all. Brave boy!
Did you hear that the actor who plays Barnaby is retiring soon? I'm so sad! I don't want him to :(

Finally made it over here - I love this polish! Excellent job and wonderful color. Amazing Konad too. I'm really into the monochrome nail art right now. :-)
