Guest NOTD: Sally Hansen Sequin Scandal (+ bm03)

Mom asked me to recommend a polish to match her outfit that she wore to the Ash Wednesday service - it was gold, and I thought I could match it but I couldn't - so I went dark instead & she liked my choice of Sally Hansen Sequin Scandal:
 

After a few days she wanted to change it up a bit with some shamrocks for St. Patrick's day - and I am SO PROUD of her.  I told her I would Konad her if she didn't wait too late, but she wanted it done right as I was finishing editing my latest tutorial, so I asked her if she wanted to do her own.  I was a little wary ... as you know there can be quite a learning curve for Konad.  But I sent her off with image plate bm03, stamper, scraper & China Glaze Passion, and after I while she came back to show me this:
 
 
Excellent placement!  Only using part of the stamp for most of her nails! And double-stamping on her thumbs!  All of her own initiative =)  A really good first konadicure.  Yay mom!  I am so proud of her LOL.  Thanks for reading.

  5. I wish I could find this color, although it looks a lot like 212-Sephora minus flakies and glitter O_o That's a fantastic job of stamping especially for a first time :)

  7. I love that color! Something about black on short nails really makes me happy :) Even though I have SUPER short nails all the time (they peel and break...ugh) I have long nail beds so they never look short and cute. Grrr.

    I'm getting a Konad set in the mail today or tomorrow; I'm so excited to try it!!!

    (First comment ever, yay!)

  10. Your Mother did an amazing job with her manicure! This Sally Hansen reminds me of China Glaze's Wagon Train.

  12. I love seeing your NOTD, your long nails are gorgeous, but I gotta admit it was your MOM's manis that got me doing mine again. I do alot of different crafts many of which I use my hands for so I tend to keep my nails pretty short. Seeing all the great manis you and your mom have done inspired me! =D
