NYC Color’s Angel with Konad and rhinestones

What I’m about to show you is the best Konad-ing I’ve ever done. Are you ready? Go!

First I started with three coats of NYC Color’s Angel.


Okay, so this photo sucks. There is a stunning fine gold shimmer through the polish which the camera refuses to pick up.

This was three coats. The first two were streaky but the third evened it out and a coat of SV made it nice and smoooov!

Then I tried a Konad design that I haven’t tried before:



I love it, I love it, I love it!!!!! The red Konad Princess Special Polish is amazing. So vibrant and easy to use. I seriously did not smudge one bit and I’m so proud of myself!

I added some flower shaped rhinestones because I got a biiig lot of them in the post on Tuesday.

I’m a bit in love with this mani. I’ve seen the white and red combo heaps but never got around to trying it. I am sooo glad I did! You can also slightly see the gold shimmer in this photo, especially if you click on it and make it biiiig!


These are the rhinestones I got from eBay:


6500 of them!!



I’m so sorry. These are ridiculously bad photos but do you know how hard it is to photograph these shinies succesfully!?
Anyway, there’s a mix of colours in each design. Love Open-mouthed smile Can’t wait to use the big round ones!


What do you think?



  1. Hi Em, I loved the burgundy and earth matters with konading. Can't wait to see the owl's on something. Is there meant to be rhinestones on the gold shimmer white nails you put up? or haven't you put any on them yet? Great range of rhinestones you got. Real 70's :) I can see the gold slightly on the white. I became a Nanna again last Tuesday week, so Zoe's an Auntie again to another little girl called Scarlett Lee. She is 1.9kg and so tiny and precious. Take care :)

  2. Ooooh! I absolutely love this one! Even more than you love it xD

  3. Hey Pauline :)
    Thank you! Yes, the little coloured flowers are the rhinestones! I put the owls on my french mani a few posts back :) Just on my thumbs!
    Oh wow, Sarah had another baby? That's great! Congratulations on being a Nanna for the 2nd time :)

    Thanks, Ree :D I don't know... I don't think you could love it more than I do :P

  4. Can I please enter the loving it competition. This is just gorgeous.

  5. Hahah what will be the prize, though?! :P Thank you, Cat :D
