Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Sun Kissed and Konad Nail Stamping

6.23.2012

I was pretty bored recently (surprise, surprise... funemployment) and decided to bust out my Konad stamping tools. I had never used them before, so I opted for a very discreet combo -- hot pink on an orange base. I picked out my Konad m57 plate for a leopard print design and watched a few tutorials on YouTube to refresh my memory. It was relatively easy -- I'll post a "how to" eventually... I just have to get better at it first. I was happy with the end result, as it is very subtle, and will definitely do this again in various color combos. Obviously, it's not a perfect application. I made the mistake of applying my top coat before the pink stamping polish was totally dry on my ring finger nail, so don't make that mistake and lose your whole design!


Despite this Sally Hansen polish being really cheap, it wears quite well and I've had about 5 chip-free days so far. I definitely think I can say that it is one of my favorite orange polishes that I own! Not too shabby for a polish I got in a sale for about 99 cents!

  1. I love these colours together! Orange is not something I'd usually go for, but this one looks really nice and summery:)
