Work franken and Konad!

I frankened myself a greige-taupe! It's so on-trend and bland and work-safe I should hate it, but it applies like a dream, and it means I don't have to go searching and spending more money on nail polish I don't absolutely love. I poured a bit of Messed Up from Mode (an awesome cocoa-taupe which is just too dark for my work) into Natio Brandy, a lovely nude creme I swore by until finding Oslo, which is part of the Bloom for Target collection.

I pulled out my unloved Konad set (I only own one plate at the moment) and grabbed China Glaze Millenium. I'm hoping this will be subtle enough that I won't get in trouble for it at work ;)

My nails are extremely short at the moment because they're in such horrible condition. Sorry 'bout that.

I'm trying to resist the urge to do some gold stars over the top of the silver ones... also I'm going to slather my hands in OHWTO's rose balm before bed. My fingers don't look that awful in real life, it's just the unforgiving macro lens!

I'm going to get some more plates and some white stamping polish soon.
EDIT: I broke the cardinal Konad rule, "know when to stop". My right finger looks a bit better than my left, but of course I couldn't manage to get any good photos of it.


  1. I kind of like the nail with lots of stars on it! I enjoy the colour that you mixed up!

  2. I'm with Vulcan butterfly. I like all the stars!

  3. Ahhh I love your starry nail! I can't use my konad at all :(

  4. Vulcan: Thank you!

    Vijis: The right hand looked much neater, lol.

    Lillian: Don't worry, Konading took me aaaaages to get the hang of. I still feel like a klutz when I do it :)
