My First Halloween Mani

Ok, so last Halloween I found the GREATEST Konadicure I have ever seen but did not have the image plates to do it, so I saved the image and FORGOT to include the name of the person who did this nail design. So for the record, I am NOT taking credit for this design, however I am taking credit for how good it turned out!!! I made only a couple of mistakes, but they are livable! This is STILL an amazing mani!!!! I have been growing out my nails specifically for this Konadicure. This mani is the reason I quit gnawing on my nails!!!

What's a Konadicure? Konad is a REUSABLE nail STAMPING system and if you read this blog, then you have an "in". Head over to O.C. Nail Art (click HERE), spend $30 or more and receive free images when you use the code FITTERTWIT (choose free image plate of your choice). Add to that free shipping to the US and I'd say that's a pretty screamin deal!!! And not only is this nail art system reusable, you can use any color you want to create gorgeous manis! To see a really great tutorial, click HERE! It gives you TERRIFIC instructions of how the Konad nail art system works!

So for this AWESOME Halloween mani, I used image plates M69 and M1. I also used the Konad Special Polish in Black and Gold Black Pearl. I started with a base coat using my Nail Aid Pink Growth and followed that with polishing my nail tips orange using OPI's Tangerine Scene. Once dry, I stamped the tips with the butterfly lace pattern on image plate M69 in the Gold Black Pearl and then IMMEDIATELY stamped the spider from M1 in black (a wonderful characteristic of the special nail polish is that you can stamp multiple times and the rubber stamper doesn't move that special polish). I polished a Seche Vite topcoat and my first Halloween mani of the season was done!!! Stay tuned..... I have another AWESOME Konadicure lined up! I'll also let you know who the designer of this Konadicure is as soon as I find them. Wish me luck.

hahahahahahaha... is it my nails that are so short and stubby or is it my fat fingers that makes my finger nails look like toe nails??? hahahahaha. Thanx so much you guys, I'm so addicted to this nail art system, and I think they DO ship to AU, but I don't think the shipping is free.
