Cold Day Nails

It's cold here in Missouri - not ready for winter. LOL I did my nails this morning to reflect how cold I felt. They are snowmen & snowflakes. It won't be long and I'll be seeing them out of my window! I used Del Sol color changing polish on my nails. It is light pink inside and purple in the sun.

New Nails Today

I used m25 and rhinestones to pretty up my hands today. Max's birthday was yesterday and he actually will be home tonight, YEAH! The rhinestone applicator that comes with the Rhinestone Set makes it really quick and easy to put the rhinestones on. Much easier than using a toothpick!

Grand Idea!

I have a grand idea but I need all of you to make it work. I have a website www.Konadstampingnailart.biz and I want to set it up so that everyone has "ownership" in it.

What does that mean? Well, it has forum where you can interact with others ~ share tips, good deals & misc stuff about stamping nail art.

It also has unlimited pages ~ so I was thinking we could do nail designs by plate number and/or nail designs by the person who designed them.

Come on over and help make a place for Stamping Nail Art Creators everywhere!

Marriage Retreat Nails

Our marriage retreat the church put on was wonderful. A great time to get away, review what works and how to improve those areas that might not work as well. We are all a people in progress! Sometimes my nails are a "work in progress". I have a concept that seems like it will work well but then I'm not so impressed with the results. This is one of those. I had to take a quick picture so we could go to breakfast (my husband really didn't want to wait for me to get the "just right look" ~ imagine that! LOL). It's not very clear but you can still see the concept.

New Nails, New Month

It's amazing how quickly time flies. I guess I need to give up Mafia Wars so I can blog more. LOL!

I need to figure out more creative ways to stamp my nails. I tend to find a pattern I like and then just use that over and over.

The new deals at JoyfulExpressions for my blog/tweet fans is: Stripes

Buy $25.0o worth of product and get one 11ml polish for $3.00. That's over half off the price of the polish and you get free shipping to boot.

This coupon code will expire on Oct. 31, 2010.

First Official Stamping Nail Art Party

Well, I had my first stamping nail art party and it showed me I really have a lot to tweak! It was fun but many of the guest were very young, polish ended up on the table instead of the placemats (thank goodness it was mostly on my tables!) and my communication wasn't clear.

I put up a display table so people could see my products and this time I put up a display of polishes so everyone could see the colors better. Well, a few of the girls wanted to try something different so they were using the display polishes....which wouldn't be bad, but when those are the last bottles we sell them because we don't use them for anything other than being on display. We swap them out every few months to make sure the polish is fresh because I don't want to sell anyone old polish. The ones they used and left on the table are easy to replace ~ but apparently they used some and then put them back.

So much for thinking I had almost everything covered! LOL

Any of you have Stamping Nail Art Parties? Any suggestions, ideas, experiences you have had would be welcome.

Hopefully next time I"ll have pictures to share.

Image of Konad Plates for Iphone

I figured out to get everyone to see the image plates on Iphone. Follow this link and you can see them pretty plain!

Plates not loading on Iphone from website :0(

Well, I guess I need to figure out how to put my plates somewhere that they can be seen. I love my iphone but hate the fact it doesn't have adobe flash. Well, only the little, itty bitty amount apple will let it have.

So, I thought I could put my plate pictures on my blog.....well, iphone doesn't load my picture from blogger either.......

So, back to the drawing board...I know there is a way to see my plates without having a million pages on my website.

Konad for July 7, 2010

I thought I would do my nails before I went and worked in the garden....come tomorrow my nails may be even shorter! I used Pure Ice Crimson & Plate #54.

I Kinda of Did it

Well, when my screen is full size I can see my post correctly, when I minimize it doesn't display correctly. Another thing I need to figure out. If anyone knows what code I need to put in to make it shrink proportionally I would appreciate it. I would rather spend time playing with Konad!

I Finally Did It

I finally figured out how to put the background up. The flower pattern is scanned from the tableskirt I made for our craft tables. I wanted something pretty & different for our tables. (Plus they were cheaper than buying plain solid colored tableskirts). Slowly but surely I will get this blogger thing down.

LOOK for new designs on my not so long nails!

Konad Nails July 1, 2010

While these aren't beautiful nails they show how short nails can look nice. I used different techniques to show someone it was easy and had many different designs to choose from. It just took a few minutes to do these.

Getting Started

I don't know why it's so hard for me to just get started. Everything has to be perfect and we all know that perfect usually doesn't happen!

So, everyone says "Oh, you really need a blog to go with your website" So instead of just writing about Konad fingernail stamping art or about the kids or about the farm.... I spend forever trying to get the perfect background. I have one....it just isn't the one your seeing now. I designed one that matched the tableskirt I have on my display tables...I just can't figure out how to get it to work. It is either to big or to small to display correctly.

So instead you get to see a mini version in this post!

Not obsessing, just doing. I really ought to think about turning that line of thinking toward exercise. . . then again I can probably design the perfect workout routine if I just think about it!
