Stamped French Konad M19

Hi girls,

At the moment I'm wearing a simple stamped French Manicure which I achieved with Konad M19 and some white polish...





French mani's are always classy... Don't you think?

Thanks for watching...

Love Kim

Bye, bye acrylics... Hello natural nails!

Hi everyone!

Last weekend I lost a nail... I don't wear tips, but the whole acrylic layer on my nail popped off...
So I've had it a bit with acrylics. I didn't felt like it to fix it, and about an hour later I lost another nail.
That's when I decided to get them off, and leave it like that...

Ofcourse my natural nails are very thin and flexible at the moment. But hey, they haven't had oxygen for about 2,5 years! I decided to buy some of the Sally Hansen strengtheners and nurture my nails with my buffing file, Solar Oil and handcream. And a couple of days later they actually looked very good!

So bring on the nailpolish, bring on Konad and let's see how they look now!

Don't mind the little bubbles you see here, it's caused by the Sally Hansen Strengthener; you don't see them irl...


Here's what I did:
1 - Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Thickener (Thin Nail Strengthener) : 2 coats
2 - OPI Bubblebath : 2 coats
3 - Stamping French Manicure with Beautiful Scratchers White + Konad M19
4 - Seche Vite Topcoat : 2 coats

And now they are much, much less bendable (is that even a word?) and stronger!






This picture is showing some tipwear, because I always do my nails late at night. Actually right before I go to sleep. And because of that, I don't have time to install my lightbox and camera etc. So I often take pictures a day (or 2) later. And that's why this picture is showing some tipwear.

But, I must admit (although I'm a real acrylic-lover) I kinda like my natural nails. It was weird to see my own nails after such a long time. But I like them, so I think I'm going to keep them this way for a while.

Here they are, the little bastards... I popped them right off... :)

I wonder how long it takes for I got my first nail broken :)

Since I'm all into natural nails now, I can use some tips and advice: what's your favorite nail hardener or strenghtener? And what's your nailcare routine? Let me know...!

Have a nice evening!
