Swirly French Tips.

I am leaving for a weekend trip to San Fransisco ( had so much fun there in October!)  This time I'm taking the hubbs.

But I had to do a real conservative mani, here it is real quick....cuz i need to pack!




 Here is the VERY cool plate I finally used for the first time.  It is a new FAVE!


I wish I had time to do the VERY SIMPLE tutorial...or at the very least take a pic with something OTHER than my iphone!  But here it is, Have a wonderful weekend!

'till your next fix.....

When you get back, would you mind doing the hearts one for us all to see? That looks like it'd be a fab Valentine's mani

I love doing the patterned tips as a "faux french"....they look like lace, and yours is beautiful! (they are so easy, too!) :)

Could you share some tips on doing French manicures with Konad? I have this plate too, but I have not found the trick to lining it up correctly so the arc fits on the right spot on your nail. I have so many visions of cool French manicures with this plate alone, but I need some help!

Ayuu- totally thought of you when I posted this. I never really had a terrible interest in this plate, but did it because I hadn't even started packing for my trip (the following morning) and needed so
ething easy & fast.
Yardstick- agreed, it's easy- as in, fast, once you get the hangof the line up.
Susan- I too had trouble with the line up when I started using plate m19. In fact I wrote it off for most konadis, opting to free hand yips. But, if you practice it gets easier. I usually have my fingers bent, tips facing me ( the hand being stamped.) If you are right handed, when doing the left hand, roll the stamp with your right hand. Like wise, when stamping your dominant hand ( in my case, my right), rather than rolling the STAMP onto the finger..... Hold the stamp stationary in the left hand, then roll your right hand ONTO the stamp. In other words, always move the dominant hand- it has more control.
Ange, yeah I actually have a coule valentines konadies to post at the end of the month. But I will use that one too. Id like to see if it surprises me.

I like this concept of conservative yet fancy tips. Thanks too for all the effort you've put into your previous tutorials for us.

tabula rasa (by the way that always reminds me of my theory classes in anthropology)...

hey, thanks just for saying so. It really means a lot to me when people take the time to say such kind thank you's. So glad you noticed!

Simply beautiful! I got this plate. Can't wait to play with it.:) But first I have to try some basic designs because I'm a beginner. :)
