Killer Swirl-m63

3.jpg"> I have been seing this image on nails ALL OVER THE NAIL blogs. It is a pretty cool plate, but I've only ever seen it done in the fantastic black pearl & silver combo. In the "basic blue rocks" blog I considdered doinga konadicure where the image was more muted. So, I did this konadi with colors in the same family. The image would have been more subtle, but the Nicole polish has some real FIRE to it. I have always loved this Nicole color...have 3X the bottles becaise it used to be my standard toe color. Anyhow, here's how to do it.
You will need m63 & two polishes. A darker base, I used NYC Canal street. Then for the stamp use a dichronich polish...(China glaze has many that work with Konad...see sassy's blog, link right) in a similar color family. If it flashes in the light, even better! 1. Paint base coat.
2. Konad over base with image from m63 in your 2nd color.
FAST...Amazing!

I love this design, I used it a while back with a basic black polish over China Glaze "How about a tumble". It looks really good with the colors you chose, that Nicole polish is very pretty.

I just LOVE ALL your designs!!! I come here several times a day, just to see what's new!! You give me such great ideas!! I was just wondering what you put on the skin around your nails, they look shiny in the pics?? Thanks for putting so much hard work into your wonderful blog!! You are my Holy Grail for the Konad mani!!

Yup, konad did a great job creatingthe design for the plate. All we have to do is pick the colors, and slap hem on! Super easy! Jollyo, I use a cuticle oil when the konadi is done....don't do it untill the last step, because otherwise it can prevent konad image from transfering to your nail.

I love this design. The colors you used are really lovely. Sort of crazy Victorian.

Thanks for your reply about the cuticle oil!! I use vaseline with a tiny artist brush around my nails when painting them. This keeps the polish from getting on the skin around my nails(I get pretty shaky doing my right hand). Before I "konad" I take a Q-tip with acetone and remove the vaseline. This way the stamp doesn't slide around. I'm getting better at stamping, just needed a little practice I guess!!
