Blue Petal Tips

I did these a while back...early this summer. Just now getting around to posting it. I wanted to try out a Konadicure with china glaze. Sassy is always using it to come up wit new designs.

I have to say that while I like this manicure, and the style of the "water mark" konad looks good on this mani.... I am not impressed with he strength of the imprint. The design isn't strong enough to qualify this as a "truly konad compatible" color. So, do experiment with China Glaze, but don't expect it to reveal a dark design.

And don't forget the toes! Actually I used a different plate for the toes, but using the same colors can make the two look cohesive. Because of my skin tone...I don't prefer the blue on my toes, not very flattering. But, perhaps it would look better on a lighter peachier complexion?
What you need: Plate M24, base color, I used China Glaze for Audry here. A nail art polish w/skinny brush, stamping color (china glaze) and a sheer blush (my franken)

The Steps:
1. Paint tips free hand from left to right in a horizontal motion
2. Stamp on image onto tips. Here you can choose a tip design, OR any design with a dense pattern.
3. Clean the smile line to remove extra polish & overlapping design.
4. paint sheer blush on the bottom 1/2 of nail.
5. cover smile line with a purple nail art polish, making a thin line

Oh I love this!
Apparently China Glaze OMG polishes work well with Konad - I've got both of those things being shipped to me right now so I'll experiment! x

This is a lovely manicure. I haven't used my Konad but you inspired me to do a Funky French manicure. I'm wearing LA Girls Rockstar collection in Groupie. A really gorgeous purple with pink shimmer. I used the French manicure forms and painted the tips Color Clubs Silver. Really came out nice. Thanks to you.
