Minted Argyle


Day 48

Today's post HAD to be quick, I barely made it in the door last night after my flight before I passed out from exhaustion, so I did my nails this morning, instead of last night, as is my custom. I got my Essie Mint Candy Apple in the mail over the weekend, and of course, HAD to use it, its GORGEOUS! I smudged my thumb when I was using the Konad stamper thing, but didnt have time to fix it, sorry! :(



I used Essie Mint Candy Apple as a base, with Nubar Milk Chocolate Creme over that with Konad Plate m60 for the argyle pattern. Konad plates are great when you're in a hurry, but still want a cool looking nail design, I love em, but wish they'd expand the line some.

Did everyone have a great weekend? I did! But now it's back to the daily grind! :)

  1. Love these! I'm such an argyle nerd!

    I love the Konad plates, but I always have so much trouble getting them to work! I'm obviously doing something wrong though, because you're like a pro at them!

  2. you probably get 4568853256 suggestions a day. but an idea? an infinity painting in your nails where your nails have small paintings of your hands and on those nails, painting of your hands and on those nails etc. etc. just a thought.

  7. Thank you everyone!!

    Amber- I find that when I have issues with the konads, it's because I'm pressing too hard, which causes them to smear. Try using light pressure, worked for me. :)

    E- a guy at work suggested that too, I may do it, it'd be cool, but HARRRRD! lol

    Frazer Huard- Thanks!! They don't take too much time, actually, usually between 30 minutes to an hour, an hour being for the crazy complex ones. I do it when I watch TV though, so the time flies by!

    lilmisshortee- that'd be such a cool job, you could do all sorts of crazy stuff- she pretty much has no limits!

    Emily- yeah, I saw that a couple of days ago, very cool, but not really my style. Some of the stuff they can do is amazing tho.
