Konad M51 - Zoya Happi

Okay, another Konad today.   I swatched and reviewed Zoya's Happi before, you can see it here.
As you know, I can't leave a good polish alone, so I added a small and subtle Konad to it :)

Using Konad plate M51 and special polish in white, I stamped the flower design over the tip alone, leaving the beauty of Happi showing through.  It looks very pretty but was a little more bold that it looks in the pics.

A cute and very pretty design, always looks nice, though Happi is a stunning polish alone anyway.

This may be my last post before Christmas Day, so let me take this chance to wish you all a very happy holiday, I'll be back soon with more konads and polish swatches :o)

China Glaze - Ruby Pumps

Today we have another CG polish, this time a popular old favourite and a fabulous one for Christmas!

Ruby Pumps have near legendary status in the polish world, and for good reason.  This is not your average red glitter polish.  It has amazing depth to its finish, it looks glassy, rich and sumptuous!

I used two coats and it applied very well, dried well and had a smoothish texture, but does benefit from a top coat, which only adds to its depth.

This is such a pretty polish, everyone should have this in their collection, its a classic for good reason, its lovely!

Konad M79 - Nubar Green Tea/Zoya Veruschuka

A quick Konad for you today, using my two favourite greens, a matte and a regular polish :)

I used the base I showed you a few days ago, Nubar Green Tea, shown here............then I used Konad plate M79 and the polka dot design in Zoya Veruschuka, reviewed here.

These are both amazing greens, one is a creme the other a matte.  This gives the manicure a lovely quality as both polishes have such different finishes, it really adds interest to the nail. It is subtle and classy but cute too!

I love polka dot mani's and love greens so this is a fav of mine :)  Hope you like it to.....

Zoya - Dovima

Today we have a Zoya for you, Dovima is a matte velvet polish and a stunner, love this one!

It has a wonderful, almost gunmetal quality to it, not metallic as such, but an almost charcoal black, filled with gunmetal shimmer, allowing it to sparkle and avoids that awful flat look some matte polishes can have.  It is not a full matte velvet finish is accurate as it has a slight glow to it, which I like.

I used only two coats of this as the coverage is great, very fast drying as most mattes are, but not so fast that you can't get a good finish.

Nubar - Green Tea

 Well we have snow here in the UK this week, and the whole country seems to have ground to a halt!  It is absolutely freezing here, I have on so many layers and its hard to get out of my lovely warm bed each morning.
I thought I would post a nice bright green for you today, to make up for the lack of green in the UK at present, lol  ;o)

Nubar have done some amazing holo and duo-chrome polishes, but they also make some fabulous cremes, Green Tea is one such polish.

A very pretty pale green creme, this is one of my favourite shades from Nubar, I do have a weakness for greens :)
This is quite and opaque one, nice to apply, though a tad on the thick side.  I used two coats and it dried well.  Apologies for the bottle pics, should have mixed it more lol :)

This is such an unusual green,  very delicate but strong all at the same time.  It is as though it had double cream added as the green has this wonderful creamy tone to it, scrummy!

Konad M9 - Nails Inc Jermyn Street

I showed you the freebie Nails Inc polishes from Glamour Mag, a while back.

I have a very quick and simple konad using Jermyn Street, a classic grey toned beige creme.

I used the buckle design from Konad plate M9 and stamped over each nail using konad black.

Very easy to do, a I think it looks classy and understated, perfect for the colour base.
