The Konad Force is NOT with me!

Good morning Lovelies!

Today, and for the rest of the week, I will be SWAMPED!  It's invoice time at work, and that means hand generating approx. 1,000 invoices, not my idea of a good time! 

This weekend SOOOO did not go as planned!  Had a great time doing Michelle's Mani, which I will share with you tomorrow, but due to time running out, it certainly is not perfect.  SORRY MICHELLE!
Sunday I headed over to Mom's and hung out with her and cranked out a few mani's before it was time to head home.  Once I got home I intended to crank out a few more, but alas, the Force was SOOOO NOT with me!  I fought with 2 different designs for over an hour!  Then I gave up, and painted my nails with 2 coats of China Glaze 2Nite and called it a night.  It's kinda refreshing to have a nice smooth pain color on though.  No, I'm not giving up my Konad ways, I just haven't worn a plain color, with no adornment, simply cause I like it, in FOREVER!  So it's kinda nice!

For today I'm goin way back, to over a week ago, to show you what I wore to the Ford race.
Of course Ford is the blue oval and the oval has a chrome border.  So I played off that.
I did 2 coats of China Glaze Frost Bite, which is such a pretty blue, but oddly looks a shade or 2 lighter in the pics below!
Then I broke out China Glaze Millennium (I know I know....AGAIN!) And stamped the criss-cross pattern from M64 over it.

As you can see, the force was weak the morning I did this too!

I actually got up early the day we were leaving, and ran into town to give my donation at Biolife.  I donate plasma twice a week!  It not only saves lives, but I get a little pocket cash for my trouble, which is nice, cause that's what I use for my polish addiction!  Anyway, I did that at the crack of dawn, got home, packed, and cranked this out.  So, I guess the lesson learned it, you can't be in a hurry when your tryin' to do a Konadicure!

BTW...no I didn't forget about the giveaway I promised!  I am almost done with gathering items, so hopefully I will be announcing it in the next 2 weeks!

Ok my awesome readers, that's all for today!
I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Evil Angel said...

I am sending you Konad cooperation vibes!

Your mani looks wonderful as always!! I love the car theme you did, very cute idea! You are one busy woman, you run circles around me girlfriend!

ENVY!!! i did yet another halloween with this at the tips....and darned it.... i had cenering issues! Or then almost all turned out on one hand but the stamp was too small for thumb, and i placed the stamp too low on another. You did it perfectly though! But i must say, if i ever figure it out...it could be one of my faves (since i really like painted tips) and the design is really sharp, graphic. great job!

Beautiful manicure. I love Frostbite. It's such a lovely bright shade of blue. God bless you for giving plasma twice a week. That's a wonderful thing you do for everyone. (((Big hugs)))
