Brisk Blue Lace & Flowers



Here is one of my latest (and in my opinion greatest) Konad manicures.
I used Insta-Dri in Brisk Blue, as my base. It dried pretty fast and I used two coats just to even everything out, but I probably could have done with one.



I used image plate m57, one of my newest and favourites. I used the full nail image of lace criss-cross diamond whatever you wanna call it. I angled it to cover half my nail on a diagonal, which was not as hard as I was afraid it would be. This was stamped in Sally Hansen White On.

Then I used the same image plate, and used the flower design with Sally Hansen Black Out. I used the larger flower for my thumbs, the two smaller ones for other fingers, and just one small one on my pinkie nails.



Then I made a line (freehand!) with an L.A. Colour Art Deco Pen. It looks almost dark copper or brown shimmer in the bottle, but on my nails it is black. Funny how that happens huh...

Unfortunately I did not use a Konad Top Coat, and left some streaks through my mani.
I thought since I was not using Konad nail polish I did not need the top coat...
What top coat do you use to not smudge your Konad?

I'm excited to use this plate now! When I fauxnad I just wait a while to apply top coat but even then it still streaks sometimes, I don't mind too much but I use a combo of Seche Vite and SH Hard as Wraps.

That is very pretty! I love the combination of the flowers and the lace/criss-cross pattern. I really like those Art Deco brushes, too; I find them very easy to use.
