KOTD: Zoya "Harley" and Fauxnad Plate C03

My grandson Drew wanted me to do something like fire and this is the only manicure I could come up with so this is for you Drew! :o)
This is Zoya "Harley" nail polish. Love the name and I love the color gray. Not sure if my skin tone is good for it. :)
I used the Fauxnad Plate C03 for the fire with the Konad Small Red Polish that comes in the kit. It is is very vibrant.
I'm very happy with it. 
I've got the 'small' giveaway all picked out and photographed. I just need to post it. Hopefully this weekend or Monday.

Konaded yesterday manicure...

I konaded yesterdays manicure. I used Konad Princess White Polish and Konad Plate M64!
I really had trouble doing the regular manicure. I kept banging it, redoing it, and basically did a crappy job. :)
I love the konading. I can't believe I haven't used this plate yet.

NOTD: Essence Colour & Go "Under Water"!

I sure had an awful time with this one. I kept banging my nails against everything. 
I will probably play with Konad on it tomorrow just for practice and take it off. I took a photo of the best hand. LOL!
This is Essence Colour & Go "Under Water"!
I find this polish hard to apply. It seems to be real streaky but the second coat makes it look some better.

Manicure using one of the gifts my daughter in law Erica gave me!

Here is what I used to do this manicure. That is a Fauxnad Plate C09!
The polish below is the Hot Topic one that Erica gave me. It has no name so I will call it Elegant Erica! :o) I though it was white but when you apply it the polish has a very pretty pink undertone. I love it. This is three coats. 
Here are my nails with the Konading added. :o)
Pretty eh?

I just got this idea from http://emeraldsparkled.blogspot.com/

I just got this idea from http://emeraldsparkled.blogspot.com/
check her out. She only needs 2 more followers to have 400.
She added a sparkle type polish to her mani so I went up to my
polish place and found Sinful "Pearl Harbor" and added to my manicure from yesterday.
It added a slight blueish glitter to my nails. I like it.

My daughter in law Erica surprised me today....

My daughter in law Erica surprised me today with a SWEET gift.
These are from Hot Topic.
Aren't they cool?
Thanks Erica. 

This is Erica. :o) Pretty gal eh?

Nails yesterday, today and Konading! :o)

I did this mani last night. I took it off because it bubbled and looked awful. It is Pure Ice Outrageous. I could have been something I did wrong but not sure. :)

This morning I took of the Pure Ice and I picked a similar color from China Glaze called Admire.

The China Glaze Admire is real similar to the Pure Ice one. :)

I then Konaded it with the Princess White Polish and Konad Plate M63

I really, really like the white Konading. :)
