Pretty Little Flowers - Konad of the Day

    First off let me say - I have made it to 50 followers!  I am very excited about this first follower milestone.  Thank you all so much for following, I am so glad you are here!  Don't forget to enter the Follower Appreciation Giveaway if you haven't yet, you can find the link at the top of the left sidebar.  :D

  Last night I decided to try out some new China Glaze polishes that I grabbed at Sally Beauty last time I was there, and got out my Konad for the first time in a little over a week!

Outdoors, shade, no flash

  For these nails, I used three coats of China Glaze Thataway, followed by Konad plate m64 using China Glaze For Audrey.  I just thought the colors looked so pretty together in the bottle that I needed to give them a chance together on the nail!  I was not unhappy with the results!  This is only my second time using CG - the first time being on my toes, which I have not showed you here - and I love this brand!  The polish went on very nice and smooth, and had a very decent drying time.  After stamping the design, I added small Konad gems to the centers of the largest flowers for a little something extra.

Outdoors, full morning sun, no flash
  I really like how these nails came out overall, I think they are fun and summery, which I have to enjoy these last few days of summer before fall is officially here tomorrow.  Dan and I bought some new Halloween decorations last night, and I am really excited to get them up soon!  I don't think I will be able to wait until October 1st.  I am planning out a bunch of fun Halloween designs as well, so I am getting really excited for the fall, and the "official" Halloween time, to get here!
