Hello lovelies!

Today I want to show you a textured nail color from Konad. I was sent Konad Sandy in Coral Bronze for honest review and in this post I will share with you how I feel about it.

Color
I was super interested in trying Sandy out because it was a surprise to me that Konad do regular nail polish in addition to their special stamping formulas. My nail polish is called Coral Bronze and is a copper shade with tiny gold particles.

Here are some shots showing Coral Bronze with and without top coat.

Formula and application
Konad Sandy line features textured colors with a matte finish. I applied Coral Bronze in two layers to get the effect from the photos. Formula is rather thick and very easy to apply with the dense brush Sandy line is equipped with. Color is opaque and you can easily go one coat but the textured finish is more visible in two.

Coral Bronze dries fast and is extremely easy to remove. You do not need some special procedures to take it off and this is a huge plus for me when it comes to textured nail polishes as sometimes they are a total pain to remove.

Wear
I had Konad Sandy in Coral Bronze on for three days. Without a top coat it wears perfect for a day and then starts to fade towards nail tips. With a top coat on Coral Bronze had no chips or color fades for the whole three day period I wore it. Tip! Wear the textured look for a day and then add a top coat. This way you will enjoy variety and you won’t have to change a full color for your perfect mani :)

My verdict
I loved this nail color for three main reasons. First, it does not need much to do your nails, just the normal two coat procedure and the average drying time. Second, it comes off very easily. And then, I love how this shade complements a yellow undertone complexion. This is by far the most lovely copper shade I have tried as I find this range of colors usually look strange with my skin tone.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed!

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to show you my Easter nails as well as a few new taping products I tried out for this manicure. So welcome back to my Stamping ABC post series where I learn and share about my newbie stamping nail art experience!

I wanted my Easter nails to be colorful, bring joy and resemble hand painted Easter eggs. To start off, I painter my nails white using my Essie Blanc. Then I randomly sponged my China Glazes I recently got and showed you. These are China Glaze What a Pansy, At Vase Value, Grass Is Lime Greener, Petal to the Metal and Sun of a Peach. I stamped on top of this random color boom using some Konad stamping products.

Konad Nails UK liked my Stamping ABC project and sent some of their products my way to test out. I got a full stamping starter kit featuring an image plate, stamp and scraper, black and white special nail polish and a special top coat. I also got image plate m94, an image plate holder as well as their textured nail polish Sandy in Coral Bronze (never knew they did those).

Although I have some successful stamping experiments with regular nail polish I could never get any white to work for me. That’s why I was in love when I tried their white special nail polish for this manicure. It stamps great, it is opaque and cover the base color very well. Konad special nail polish left no smudges unlike my regular top coats I have already ranted about. I hven’t used my new image plates yest because I’d already had the design in mind but I love them and will be reviewing and featuring them in designs soon.

Thanks for reading, have great Easter holidays and see you soon!
