Taxi Konadiclone!

Hey, fellow Konaddicts...today I am bringing you a very cleaver nail design.  NOT MINE though.  It's a total konadiclone i stole the idea from the Daily Nail.

After spending time in the city, surrounded by taxies, I was inspired to do something to commemorate the trip.  I remembered an adorable nail idea from the Daily Nail Blog and decided to run with it.  I hope if she happenes across this post she is flattered!

These nails differ a little.  I used the tip plate design at the middle of the nail.  I also wanted to print out Taxi Cab (too bad it smeared before I took a pic)and do an accent nail full of numbers. You know How I love that accent nail!

Originally I did these with out the silver stripe....but in the end, I couldnt leave well enough alone.  Thought it reminded me of the bumper on an old taxi cab.

Here's what you will need:

A yellow base color, white polish, Konad Special polish in black, and some cuticle oil is always nice.  makes your nails look moisturized!

Here is how to create these nails:

1) paint base color
2)paint a white curved strpe in the middle of most nails, and the tips of your thumbs.


3) Stamp the check pattern over the white stripe.


4) Print TAXI on the thumb and stamp numbers on the accent nail.
Finally, finish with using a stripe polish in silver to freehand the silver borders on each check pattern.

Hope you all love this darling design, inspired by another very talented blogger and nail artist.

Untill your next fix...

Thanks every one...and againIT WAS A TOTAL KONADI-CLONE. I consider the idea &the inspiration to be the most difficult part, & it takes a real talent like Melissa of the Daily Nail to come up with these things.

It takes a lot of commitment, time, and talent to do all the amazing mani's she does. Oh & by the way...most are free hand! Bananas!

thanks ladies for the encouragement and Melissa for happily viewing my rip off!
happy konadding Ladies!!

OH BIG NEWS>>>tomorrow i will receive THE NEW KONAD PLATES!!! does any one have them....NO!!! feel lucky to have a thoughtful friend who wants to let me share these with all of you!
