NARS Bohemia & Konad

This week, I decided to try my ultra-expensive ($16) NARS Bohemia polish. I love the color, but I think I'd go with something cheaper next time. I'm still not terribly good at the Konad thing, but I'm definately getting better! The picture above is no flash, and true to color, the one below is with a flash, and shows the mica sparkling a little.
I used 3 coats of polish (it was opague in 2) over Zoya basecoat, and 2 coats Lippman top coat over everything. Not too bad - the polish bubbled a bit, but it was before the top coat, so I'm thinking the NARS didn't like my base coat. I think the konad plate is M4.

Brooke & Catherine, you should have your prizes by the end of the week, Pixie, I'm not sure how long yours will take to get there, but hopefully soon!
Happy polishing!

Pretty color and Konad design. Very delicate. Love it.

Thanks Lucy! I have a long ways to go with the Konad, but got compliments at work this morning, so must be doing something right... :-)

I think the konad looks great! Kind of has an oriental feel to it, to me anyway.

Jamie, that is so lovely! I'm so sorry that I have not been by more often. I have a lot of catching up to do! I will also add you to my blog roll!

Nice job! I really like the color and design.

Brooke: Thanks! That's what I was going for, though I'm disappointed at the tip shrinkage.

Velvet: No worries - I've been really busy lately too. Thanks for making time to stop by!

rf: Hi mom, and thanks! Everyone, meet my mom, new to the blogosphere. ;-)
