China Glaze Secret Periwink-le + Konad

Hello lacquered lovelies! This is the mani I mentioned in my rant post - I definitely felt a lot better after posting that!

This was my first time using a full Konad nail design, so I decided to use a pattern that had more curves in it, just so it wouldn't be super obvious if I failed.

The base is China Glaze Secret Periwink-le (why is it like that? I hate random hyphens) and the swirly flower pattern from the M73 plate. SP is exactly what the same suggests - a purpley-blue colour to my eye. Nice creamy finish. The pictures are all with two coats, a coat of Seche Vite, stamp using Konad special polish and another coat of Seche Vite.

Good lord, the overhead light in my room  is disgusting. I look so yellow! This is shortly after I finished this mani up.

This is with my "natural" lamp. I kind of like the look of this, though it's not super colour accurate.

But this one isn't either. Honestly, I desperately need some sun in my life. It's been raining/miserable here for a week and a half now.

So sadly, this is the closest I could get to natural light. I think there was a raindrop on my finger in a few of the shots.

Ah yes, there it is, on my middle finger. Curses! Although I still have those pictures of Sea Spray with water droplets on it... sooo pretty. Must post soon!

So there we go. What do you think? I think it looks like a retro wallpaper or something. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

Have you done any fun Konadicures lately?

Thanks for reading!

  1. This looks so pretty and girly! I have SP and have yet to use it, but now you've inspired me to bust it out of my stash :)

    P.S. I like the new layout
