My birthday was last week and I received nail polish as gifts! So happy about them and I've decided to do my first ever haul post. I've already started using some of them, so you'll be able to see how they look like.
Okay, first up! Konad plates and konad special polishes!!!
konad plates m70 (left) & s10 (right). I think the s10 plate is really cute. I'll definitely try to use them for easter nails, so excited (and bimbotic)! My bf got them for me cos I went nail shopping and he decided to pay for them since he didn't know what to get me. I spent a lot of time in the konad shop but didn't want to splurge on so many plates at once cos I was really walking towards my usual OPI shop but got distracted when I saw this shop selling konad stuff! I used to have to buy them online but now i can easily buy them here!
These are the konad special polishes he got me as well
Even though I like choosing whatever colour I have from my polish collection to do my konad stamping, the special polishes are a lot easier to work with. I had my nails stamped within 10 minutes! Not kidding. :P I chose the big bottles for black and white cos I figured I would use them the most. The yellow bottle at the far right looks different from the smaller ones in the middle cos the yellow bottle is from the pastel collection.
I've already used the black polish and the m70 plate. Here's how it looks like:
So pretty right? I'm so happy with my new konad stuff.
After the konad shop, I finally made my way to my original destination to get OPI polish. I didn't get much though since I already got some konad stuff.
Left - right: Black Shatter, Princess Rules, Its Totally Fort Worth It
Its Totally Fort Worth It was actually bought another day, and its not a birthday gift from anyone. I just wanted to add it in the picture since its bought recently and I've still not used it yet.
Here's how Princess Rules looks like:
I really wanted to get Katy Perry's Teenage Dream but it was sold out. I put my name on the waiting list and got Princess Rules as a substitute for the time being. I think its super gorgeous though.
Black Shatter is awesome. I like watching the polish crack on my nails, just so amazing. haha.
One thing I noticed was that Black Shatter dries soo quickly. I guess thats one of the qualities that makes the polish crack. So the bottle should not be left opened for long as it'll ruin your polish soon. The salesgirl at the shop taught me the trick to making the polish crack nicely. If you want bigger pieces of shatter, then paint the polish on thickly. If you want the polish to crack more evenly, then paint it on thinly and it will look like my thumbnail in the picture below.
Btw, Black Shatter & Princess Rules go so well together! The reason why I bought Princess Rules as a substitute was because I really like how the Black Shatter looks like on Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. The shimmery pink peeking out from under the black shatter is so pretty.
My good friend Grace also bought me polishes for my birthday! These are the MAC polishes that she got me
left: Frayed to Order; right: Biker Blue
I've already tried Frayed to Order, and its a gorgeous milky white with a hint of shimmery pink. The polish actually dries matte, which was quite surprising to me. I had a MAC polish before but I don't remember that happening. Do all MAC polishes dry matte?
I don't know if you can tell from the picture, the above is without top coat. I think its kinda cool, just like the OPI matte collection. If you want it matte, leave it as it is, if not, just paint on a top coat. Oh yeah, the polish dries really fast, just like Black Shatter. Again, can't keep the bottle opened for long if you wanna "prolong its lifespan". I've not tried Biker Blue, but I'll post pictures when I have!
Here's how Frayed to Order looks like with a top coat on. It actually kind of reminds me of OPI's Who Needs A Prince.
Lastly, here's my konad special blue polish with plate m70 on top of Frayed to Order:
Thanks for reading! :)
