My very own Hidden Treasure very own swatch of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure!!

I'm sure you've all seen hundreds of swatches over tons of different colours but I wanna show mine too!!

I used Sally Hansen Triple Strong and Orly Bonder as my base coat and also my trusty Seche Vite as top coat.

The base colour I used was CQ in Mystical which I picked up from Rite Aid during my last border cross for $2!! 

I happened to stop by Pharma Plus on my way home from work 2 days ago and just peeked at the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure display. I was so sad cuz I didn't see Hidden Treasure right away until I started reading the names and BOOM!! Right there in the middle....HIDDEN TREASURE!! I snatched it up like nobody's business and almost danced in the aisle. I had to BBM my Puppy and share the great news! And BONUS it was 30% off so I ended up only paying a little over $5 for it!

Couldn't sleep last night so I ended up looking at swatches of HT online until I couldn't take it anymore and did my nails at 3 am.

So, enough is one coat of HT over 2 coats of Mystical.

This was taken right by my window.
 Close up of flakie goodness!

One more shot for posterity. :)

In indoor light it flashes magenta...oh the prettiness!! I can't stop staring at my nails! I never wanna take this off...until I get my holos that is! 

This is a shot using indoor light but my camera hates me and won't capture how vibrant of a magenta it is!!! GRRRR. I wish you were all beside me so we can "Ooohh" and "Aaahh" over the gorgeousness. It looks like my nails are on fire!

Until the next Konad/manicure!

Nail Polish haul!!!

Ok, so my awesome Puppy went across the border for Black Friday. She picked up a whole bunch of nail polishes for the both of us. She was kind enough to pick me up 3 Color Club holo glitters in silver, black and gold!! I'm super super excited about it!

But, since we're greedy now with holos, we've decided to order Worth the Risqué and Revvvolution online! From no holo to a whole bunch of them!!

She's putting together a kit for me as my Christmas gift and I'm putting one together for her as well!! I can't wait for us to exchange gifts!

Plus...I got my long-awaited and long searched for Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure!!! That name is so fitting cuz it's not readily available and you gotta just find it with good timing! And it was on sale too so even better! I would've grabbed two but it was the very last one on the display! Can't wait to layer that baby over black creme but maybe no Konad stamp with it?


Wow haven't updated in ages!! Sorry about that...just a mixture of busyness and laziness. LOL!
Ok so moving on to the KOTWs. In all these Konadicures I used Orly Bonder as a base coat and Seche Vite as a top coat.
I call this Bronzed Henna.

Base colour was Wet n Wild Craze in Rustic, stamping colour was Sally Hansen in Rave Review Critique. I used image plate m64.

My boyfriend said "It looks like a bandanna" when he saw this Konadicure, therefore it has been dubbed Bandanicure. LoL!

Base colours are Wet n Wild in Black Creme and Rimmel in Grey Matter, stamping colours were vice-versa'd.

Image plate used was m64.

I was so gung-ho about taking a pic of this mani that I failed to clean around the sides before snapping a pic of it! FAIL!

My boyfriend said this looked like winter so I'm naming it Black Frost.

Base Colour is Sally Hansen Silver Lining, stamping colour was Wet n Wild in Black Creme.

Image plate used was s6.

Taken with flash.

Taken without flash.

For some reason, I got tired of this one real quick and couldn't wait to change my nails. =( It made my hands look dirty for some reason. Weird??

Current KOTW. Silver Sculptured Tips.

For the tips I used Finger Paints in Silver Sculpture. For the design I used China Glaze in Grape Pop and LA Colors Art Deco in silver glitter.

The image plates used were m19 for the tips and s6 for the design.

Until the next Konadicure!

Purple Pearl and Wallpaper on Peacock

I've done two Konadicures since coming back from NYC. My Flower Power was good during the trip but I had to change it once I got home. 

This one is just a variation of my Flower Power. This picture was taken after 5 days of wear...I realized I haven't taken a picture of it yet and I was planning on changing my Konadicure today.
I used China Glaze Grape Pop and Finger Paints Well-Cultured Pearl as base colours and switched them up for stamping. For this I had tried the "Sticky Sandwich" method. 

I used Orly Bonder as a base coat and then applied my base colours on top. Then another coat of Orly Bonder then another layer of base colour. Then ANOTHER layer of Orly Bonder then my Seche Vite Top Coat. 

As you can see, no chipping, very very minimal tip wear. 

My current Konadicure is what I call Wallpaper on Peacock. 

For Base Coat I used Orly Bonder and I did the "Sticky Sandwich" method again. Then I used Joe in Peacock for my base colour. Then for stamping I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Rave Review Critique which my friend told me about. I love stamping with it! I never ONCE had to re-do a stamp! I used M65 for the flowers and vines. Then Seche Vite for my top coat.

Doesn't it look like wallpaper? =D

I've been a very bad girl. I had gone to Sally's and bought 3 Finger Paints nail polishes in Well-Cultured Pearl, Silver Sculpture and Hue Rang? I also ordered 4 plates before I left for NYC and a week later I got my haul!! I bought M64, M65, S6 and S9. If you're wondering where I order my supplies from, I order from They send your orders pretty fast and if your order is $20 or more, they ship for free to U.S. and Canada!

'Til the next Konadicure!
