I was going to do some Konad, I actually did one nail & was not pleased with the results & so removed it. I guess it's (barely) sparly enough to hold it's own without any nail art. The base color is kind of hard to describe ... and a little different in the bottle than on the nail. Kind of taupe-copper-golden-sparkle. I like it, and I feel like shimmery reflective colors like this usually make my nails look longer, which is a plus.
