Penny for What's on Your Pine


Day 40

Today I decided to do something simple so I did a design using a Konad plate, and VERY inexpensive nail polishes. I got this gorgeous new color from (surprisingly) Sally Girl from Sally Beauty Supply. Unfortunately, they don't have them on their site for some reason, so no link. It is a gorgeous metallic pine color. Absolutely gorgeous... and only 99¢! Smudged the middle finger a bit when I applied the pattern, but it still looks ok. :-P



I used Sally Girl Nail Lacquer in a no-name metallic pine (dark green), with Urban Vibe Charged (a very pretty metallic copper) with Konad Plate m70. Topped it off with my usual two coats of Seche Vite top coat.

  1. This is the first time I've seen this design used and I like it a lot more than I thought I would! The colors you chose go really well with it too. and you can't beat a 99 cent polish! Thanks for sharing :)

  7. Thanks guys!!

    Brooke- I love those little 99¢ polishes at Sally- gives me a chance to try different colors without too much commitment :-P the copper color was even cheaper, a mere 50¢ at Wet Seal on sale, I'm really glad that I decided to grab it! :-P

    Opinionation- it doesn't really add too much to my schedule- some days it does, I suppose, especially when I just want to go to bed (I do my nails at night before I go to bed). I usually do them while I am watching TV, which I would be doing anyway, so its really no big hassle. I guess in the aspect that is a year project I suppose it is, but I have no book to go from, and I have to do it EVERY day, no breaks! :-P

    Hannipie- I find that hard to believe, there are others far more creative than I am. :-P But THANKS! :-P

    Petrina- Thank you! I've always been jealous of the ladies with the perfect moon shaped nailbed, and drool and dream over the shape of other's nail shapes!! :-P
