konad M60

OPI DS Sapphire base color with Konad plate #M60. Topcoat- Seche Vite. While TC was still wet, I used an orange stick to apply NYX Glitter in Hot Pink to the flower petals. It turned out great! No migration of glitter beyond the petals.

My first time using Seche Topcoat, and I love it!

Tarte mascara- Lights, Camera, Lashes!

Several weeks ago, I inherited, from Amber, the sample box set of mascaras offered at Sephora.

I've been using the first one I grabbed... Tarte- Lights, Camera, Lashes!

Just LOOK at my lashes!

I so wish mascaras were offered in these sample sizes. They're so easy for me to handle.

Loving all over this mascara!


I'm going to classify Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch as "magic" and my HG face primer!
I'm going to pass Tarte Clean Slate on to my daughter Amber (this primer is better suited for younger skin).
But back to the Clarins! Although the jar is small, .50 oz, a little goes a very long way. It comes with a nifty boomerang scoop- perfect for long nail people like me. This stuff goes on like a dream, and what it does to the texture of my skin is secondary to what it makes my skin look like. Magic, I tell you...very much like an out of focus or blurry picture, this primer blurs the canvas of my complexion!
Can't get any better than that!

Benefit Lemon Aid- Another product that I can't live without! I'm using this product over my eye primer from lid to brow. Not only does it brighten the whole area, it also covers redness and flaws, and serves as an excellent creme base for shadows to stick. Moreover, this product does double duty for me. I'm also using it on other areas of my face where I have redness.
Awesome product!

Konad nail system/art - After playing around with Amber's set, I had to get one of my own! My first try was plate #m66, bamboo image, and it turned out wonderful! I had fun doing it to boot! I've combined both of our kits into an organizer and deemed it as commmunity property.

Konad nails!

This is my 3rd go at the Konad plates, and my first nail pictures.
