A Work-Friendly 'Nad and **Warning Toes**

I was going for a sheer look today because my nails were behaving very well lately so I thought I would reward them a bit by showing off with a sheer. Well, Misa No Shrinking Violetta didn't turn out that sheer.
Then I decided to do a 'nad with this little Konad special nail polish that I bought with my first 'nad order. I really don't think this is a real Konad polish and I had no idea when I got it because I never knew what the bottles looked like. I don't even remember where I got it from.

So I used this 'Konad special polish' in pink (I guess I will call it that since there is no name on it) with plate m69 and the image all the way on the left. (The pic below is linked to a great Konad site where you can view all the plates easily, but don't buy there- go to and use code contestsandsuch to receive 20% off your order!)

Despite this really not being sheer or the special polish being real, I really like the way this turned out. I don't really have a strict office where I have to watch what color nail polish I wear (heck! I wear jeans and a polo to work!), but for those who can't I think this is a nice option for them.

Don't say I didn't warn you! :)
I wanted to use ChG Frostbite on my toes, badly, b/c it is soo beautiful! I just can't keep it from chipping on my fingers, so toes is the next option. Then I wanted to 'nad it too. I used SH Insta-Dri Whirlwind White because I heard it was pretty good for 'nadding and I like how it turned out. I used m25 and threw a couple rhinestones on there and it was all goood :)

Would you rock either of these to work or for fun?

OMG your toenails are so tiny! lol

I love the look on your fingernails - very delicate and lady like!

I like the look you did on the toes too! I think both of them rock!

Brooke~ Yeah, they are. They are goofy too that's why I don't post them-plus I get ingrown toenails and no one likes that! It's also hard to 'nad them b/c they are so small.
It is rather lady-like and simple. I thought I'd try that route.

The toes look great too!
