Oh! Also, these pics were taken during the day so I took advantage of the lovely sun and got some pics near the window. I mostly take photos under a lamp because it's usually dark out when I swatch or do my nails.
I really love black and white konads. I think a black design on a white base would have looked sharper and more contrasting, but I was lazy and didn't want to wait for three coats of a white base to dry. I was able to konad over the black almost straight away since it was only one coat.
These new BM plates are so great! I love that the full nail designs are larger... and there are so many of them! Plus, I had a $20 Amazon gift certificate so the set was only a few dollars. \o/
