Rose Konad

I very much like how this mani turned out...

Ozotic 621 with roses from plate M65. My pictures don't capture the glow that 621 has. I think I wore this for almost a week I was so enamoured with it!

Pink Brocade Konad

One of my favourite manis I've ever done. I very much loved it!

I started with this...

American Apparel Coney Island stamped with plate M71 and OPI Mrs O'Leary's BBQ.

Then matted down....

Ahhh.. YES! The texture and the print totally reminded me of some kind of fancy pancy velvet brocade wallpaper.

I received so many compliments when I wore this. A tonne. A stranger actually stopped me on the street to ask me what it was. Apparently, I was on my phone, so she shadowed me until I hung up so she could ask me. Hahahaaaa! We had a good laugh.

China Glaze 2NITE

Also from my Top 20 2011... China Glaze 2Nite.

Cornflower blue holo! Do love. There is something just so pretty about this one. It's a delicate colour but it still packs a punch with it's lovely linear holo. Yummy.

Sally Hansen Gem Crush Collection

Well... not really the whole collection. Just my favourite three. Again, many thanks to the awesome Ali for getting these for me. *hugs!*

Lady Luck. Magenta microglitter and small silver holo hexes. Amazing! It's so strange that I would pick a pink as my favourite from a collection... but yes. This is my favourite. It's so bright and happy. And the shade doesn't give me corpse hands!

Glitz Gal. A couple of shades of charcoal microglitter plus small silver holo hexes. Sparkly! I love wearing this as a pedi. I know there are a few dupes to this one out there though.

Cha-Ching! Red microglitter and small silver hexes. Such a rich red on the nail. I love how this pulls together... the silver glitter looks like it's half buried in a sea of red. So awesome!

One thing I think should be mentioned are the brushes on these. They're the same as the Complete Salon Manicure ones resembling a big ass paddle. Do. Not. Like. I hate brushes like these. They don't give me enough control while painting. Love the colours though. I'm willing to forgo the brush for that!

OPI La Boheme

From my December Top 20... La Boheme.

I swear that the bottle I obtained a couple years back did not have as much of the duochrome shimmer as this one does. Or maybe my noob eyes just couldn't see it. Who knows. *shrugs*

But this one... this one is magic. It freaking gloooowwsss. Love it. Thank you Kristy!

Rainbow Leopard Konad

Something bright, colourful and happy! Perfect way to kick off a new year.

Black spots on white, I think it was plate BM221. Then filled in with dots of colour. I received so many oohs, aahs and compliments when I wore this. It was very attention grabbing.

Love. Peace. Prosperity. Happiness and Good Health. May all these blessings be with you through 2012 and beyond. Happy New Year!
