Multi-Coloured Konadicure

I got inspired to do this konadicure after seeing this post on xsparkage's blog. I used different polishes than she did (cremes instead of holos) and a different Konad IP, but you can click on the above link to see what gave me the idea.

Here's my version of a multi-coloured background, with a design stamped on top:

For the base colours, I freehanded diagonal stripes in Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in "Grass Slipper" and "I Pink I Can", as well as Orly "Snowcone".  I thought these colours worked well together to create a bright, summery background for the black pattern.

You can see that I placed the colours in different orders on each nail instead of doing each nail with the three colours in the same order. 

The design I stamped is from Konad IP m60. I love these concentric circles, and I realized that I'd only ever used this pattern once before, so I figured, why not? The pattern isn't quite big enough to cover my thumb, so that looks a bit messed up, but otherwise, I really like how it turned out.

This is a new polish I just bought form the Complete Salon Manicure line.  "I Pink I Can" is a cute name and it's a light pink, but not as light as is looks in the picture. It leans a bit to the warmer side of pink.  The thick brushes in these bottles weren't that great for trying to paint diagonal lines, so I did make quite a mess, but most of it washed off my cuticle area after a few hand washes the day after I created this konadicure.

So, I hope you enjoyed this post, and maybe some of you will be inspired to try a similar konadicure yourselves.  It was a little difficult, but I think the results were worth it.  What do you think?


  1. I love the look. I also saw xsparkage's blog and love that one too. I just don't know if I have the patience to paint all the diagonal stripes and wait to dry b4 I stamp. :op

  2. Bunny - glad you like this one :-)
    Beata - yeah, it did take a bit of patience and time, but sometimes I do my nails to unwind, so I don't really mind.
