Konad M9 - OPI You're a Doll/E.L.F Chocolate

Today's Konad uses OPI 'You're a Doll for the base'. I showed this polish on the site about a week ago, you can see the details here, it applied beautifully and this is three coats, though two was passable.
I wanted something subtle and understated with this one, as the polish is so pretty on its own.
I went through my konad plate collection and decided on M9, a row of teeny flowers that seemed just right for this. I placed them down the edge of my nail as the design needed to be off-centre for the look I wanted, I didn't want this in your face across the middle, but just noticeable on the side.
I also wanted a chocolate colour to tone with the polish, but I didn't own Konad Chocolate at the time I did this konad (it just arrived yesterday morning!)....so I hunted through my stash to see what I could use. I ended up trying E.L.F Chocolate and it worked really well, I was happy with the resulting print.



I love this combo and the pattern, it looked so delicate and classy. This is one had good staying power, it lasted a good 6 days before I got any chips, a really outstanding polish.

thanks every one!

It is a cute design, I bought the plate for a different design and never thought I'd use any of the others, but this just seemed perfect for what I was after. Seems we do need all the konad plates, you never know when you need then lol
