Red & Gold Christmas Konading

Well, I haven't updated in a while due to various reasons, the mains ones being a busted laptop and my old camera driving me insane. I was lucky enough to get a brand new camera for Christmas! :) no more desperately trying to make it focus! I love love love it. 

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Christmas. This is how I had my nails, as red and gold are my absolute favourite Christmas colours (also the colours of Gryffindor...HP nerd alert).

The base colour is OPI - The One That Got Away, and the stamping colour is Barry M Gold Foil Effects. I finished with NYC top coat. The stamping plate is Konad M60.

This is only the second full mani I've done using a Konad plate...I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. The Barry M foils make great stamping polishes.

Quick haul picture before I go...I was given these Calvin Klein polishes for Christmas. There's some really pretty colours that I can't wait to swatch!



  1. Gorgeous, such a Christmas combination x

  2. This is really lovely. I just got a stamping kit for Christmas. Do you have any tips for stamping newcomers?

  3. Thank you :) a couple of things helped me when I first started:

    - Roll the stamp onto the design and onto your nails, it transfers better
    - If the stamper isn't picking up the design properly, buff it gently with a nail buffer, this helped me!
    - Speed! Try and be fast as the polish dries very fast once it's on the stamper.

    Good luck, and there's LOADS of tutorial vids on youtube if you get stuck!

  4. There are several synonyms you may coursework help find while searching for samples online. Different universities use different terms, but usually their purpose remains the same.


I appreciate all comments, but please do not leave links. Thank you! :)
