I'm in love with konad. I'm using it alot and I just recently got two new plates, I can't wait to try them out. Not a 100% happy with the konad special polishes though so I'm going to try and use other nail polishes instead.
I think the colour is a must in my collection, although it is very hard to work with so I have to say no on if I would buy it again. I'm not using it alot and hopefully by the time it is empty I have found a dupe that is better to work with.
A really nice grey. Everything I expected, will definetly buy again.
Treatments -Mavala - Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover
Moodesty 12/7/2010 10:41:00 AM
I think this product is okey, it is gentle on the nails but it takes forever to take off the nail polish, thats why I have switched to Zoya remove+ instead. I'm going to use up the bottle though but I won't repurchase. Right now I'm using this for cleaning up arround my nails after I have painted them, takes some time since its mild but also my skin don't get so dry.
Needed 2 coats and then it was perfect. I'm a huge purple fan and I really like this colour, on my fair skin this is looking pretty dark but its not a typical vampy shade. Its not the most interesting shade but at the same time its not plain and boring either. For me this is a very nice everyday colour, interesting enough to have on for a few days without doing konad or drawing on it, but I would not have it on for a week straight (I almost never do that with any nail polish though). If you are a purple fan like me I recommend getting it.
Needed 3 coats, so thats a little dissapointing for an OPI. But the colour is very nice, I definetly needed this in my stash! I know this is probably a summer colour for a lot of people but I actually liked it for winter too, I have putted on some konad snowflakes and rhinestones and I love it. And it matches on of my winter jackets. So for me this is definetly an all year colour,and I'm very happy that I bought it.
This is probably one of my top three favourite nail polishes. Its a light grayish lilac, it is a bit of a strange colour witch makes it interesting without being a "in your face POW!" colour. Its a little bit thick, and it needs two coats but it lasts a long time on me. For me it is a shade I use all year round, it looks great on my pale skin and in the winter when my fingers often get pink this shade does not make it look worse. All in all what I can say is just that I really LOVE this and totally recommend it.
This was included in a set I bought, otherwise I would never even have looked at it or though that I needed a dark brown. But after putting it on I realize that this is just perfect for me! Its very dark but I like it that way, I think I'm going to use this instead of black because this really suits me! This actually filled a void I did not even know that I had, and I would definetly repurchase.
Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - Under My Trench Coat

This satisfied my craving for a natural nailpolish that was not boring, its not exactly the first polish I reach for but when I want something neutral this is my favourit. I putted no on if I would buy it again though because I think this will last me for "forever" since I'm not using it that mutch.
I LOVE this! I have struggled so mutch with removers, most of them has made me use so mutch time and made me swear and cuss and in the end rarely all the polish was gone. And all the times I have spilt remover! That is why I love this product, I love the smart bottle and removing nailpolish is now a dream! I do not find it drying and I like the smell of it. The only downside is that it is kinda pricey but I think it is worth it.
I really liked the colour, but as for application I did not like it. It needed 3 coats and it tok forever to dry (I went out riding about 1 hour and 30 min after putting on the topcoat and when I was done I saw that the nailpolish had not been completely dry so three of the nails on my right hand was completely dented and the nailpolish had moved etc). So I had to remove it the same day I put it on, not happy about that. But because of the colour I will use it again, I'm just going to make sure I have all the time in the world to make it dry after I have putted it on.
I have not tried many topcoats because I pretty fast found this product and I like it. It dries pretty quick, and if I put on one coat the first day and another coat of it on the second day I can most times go 5-7 days without chipping (depends a little on witch polish I have used it over). It is also really good for making rhinestones stay on the nails. The only problem I find with it is that I think it makes the nail polish look more dull after some days, and I would really like to keep the shine for as many days as I can keep on the nailpolish without chipping. So I'm definetly going to use this in the future and I just bought my secound bottle, but I'm also going to keep searching for the "perfect" topcoat.
I'm kinda lazy and I could not live with bare nails so I have probably not used it completely as it is intended. But what I do is that I always use it under my nail polish, and for me it is definetly making my nails better than without it, its no miracle cure but I never though it was either so I'm pretty happy with the product.
I like the colour, I just wished it was a tad lighter, thats why I put no on the repurchase. But if you want a dark teal I would say definetly try this one.
I was really exited about this one, but was very dissapointed. The formula was a little thick but ok enough. The colour is very pretty outdoors in the sun (reminds me of old time lipstick in a good way), but indoors I really do not care for it I think the colour looks totally bleh in indoor or poor lightning witch is what it is most of in the winter and in the summer I will reach for more vibrant colours. I will definetly use the nailpolish from time to time, but I will probably not repurchase.
