Konad 2

Before I start today's post, I just want to have a quick word about comments. I'm so thrilled that people are reading this blog and I'm delighted when you leave comments but I don't know if everybody who leaves a comment looks at the comment box again later on for a reply to what they've written. My method is to use my comment box to reply to comments left for me but in case you haven't read my latest comments, let me take the chance to say here how much I appreciate you following my blog and leaving comments. I've really been enjoying reading all of your blogs too and getting to know such fabulous people :-)

And now for today's update. This morning started with me accompanying my boyfriend to the hairdresser. Neither of us speak Polish so finding a reasonably-priced hairdresser who speaks English is always an adventure. I haven't had my hair cut here but this was David's second haircut and once again he found himself having to get his instructions translated to the hairdresser through someone else. It turned out okay though. While he was waiting to have his hair cut, I went to the chemist Rossman (similar to Boots) and picked up a new nail polish. I was tempted by Rimmel's Pop Rose but ended up with a similar shade of pink by Milo (which I think is a Polish brand) as it was around £2 cheaper. This colour is fantastic; I absolutely love it and I think it's a great match with white Konad images. So, without further ado, I present to you my first full Konad manicure:

What do you think? On some nails I messed up the placing of the stamp but overall I'm quite happy with it and I admired it a lot this afternoon, sneaking sly little looks at my nails when I was having coffee with a friend. I don't think it's too bad for a first attempt but I'm looking forward to practising and experimenting.

And finally, a picture of the delicious pain au chocolat David made this evening. The photo doesn't really do them justice but they were delicious.

Now we're going to watch De Battre Mon Coeur S'est Arrete. A perfect end to a lovely day.

Bye for now,


  1. i love the nailpolish!
    and those looks so yum. i used to make those. i called them nutelly ravioli. ahha.

    i am now a new follower. follow me too?

  2. Haha, the pain au chocolats look funny. I find it bizarre it's called 'follow' to subscribe to someone. It's almost like I'm stalking people although I suppose it is true in a sense. I only realised today that some bloggers I've been stalking for a while are on blogspot too. So now I'm following* them. Heh

  3. Konad does look amazing like it's been done professionally by somebody else. I don't think I'll go into it just yet though. Since I'm only wearing nail varnish at weekends, I think I'd find it hard to take it off on a Sunday night feeling it's wasted iyswim

  4. Thanks Carrie. The "nutelly ravioli" were tasty- can't wait to have the leftovers for breakfast this morning :-)

    I know what you mean about only using Konad at the weekends and feeling it's a bit of a waste Wing takes less than 5mins to do so if you're going to go to the effort of painting your nails anyway...
    My plan is to use subtle colours of polish during the week when I start working and use subtle colours for the Konad images too! We'll see what happens.

  5. Cool nails!

  6. Yeah,

    the nutella ravioli were great indeed. I will do some more for darling in few days.

    Bye for now.


Reading your comments makes my day, leave me one to have your say :-)
