Guest Blogger Series: Babbling Brooke's Stunning Konad

Today's guest blogger is Brooke, and her blog is called Babbling Brooke. She posts a lot of great nail looks, and she's also quite crafty, loves to bake and knit, and is an avid animal supporter. If you aren't familiar with her blog, check it out and show her a little follower/link love! Today she's done a beautiful Konad design to share with us, using some of her favorite polishes. I love the look of this, and I think she chose her colors perfectly. If you'd like to be a guest blogger, just send me an eMail and I'll be happy to 'host your post'! Thank you Brooke, for joining me today!

Happy Saturday, fellow Body & Soul readers! Today I wanted to share two of my newest polish crushes with you: Color Club Wild at Heart and China Glaze It's My Turn. I also have my number one Konad Design--what could be better than a day full of favorites?
Above: For this design, I used 3 coats of China Glaze It's My Turn for the base. It's My Turn is part of China Glaze's Kaleidoscope collection--isn't the design on the bottle pretty?

Above: It's My Turn is a holographic gold with large pieces of holographic glitter. Like most China Glaze polishes, it applied smooth and thin, and dried extremely fast. Unlike some glittery polishes, It's My Turn is totally smooth--it doesn't leave nails rough, like some glitters do. I love holographic polishes and this is by far my favorite holographic gold (with China Glaze GR8 coming in second).
Above: For the design pictured at the top of my post, I used Konad plate m64 with Color Club Wild at Heart, shown below. To learn more about Konad, check out my tutorial. Wild at Heart worked nicely as a stamping polish, but it also looks great as an all-over polish. It covered very well with just one coat (awesome!), applied smoothly, and dried quickly. Wild at Heart is a deep purple holographic with holographic micro glitter. It is STUNNING--I am loving this polish!

  1. Wow! That is a stunning look! Beautiful colours used. I love the china glaze kaleidascope collection..that collection is what cemented my love for holographic nailpolishes.

    If only we could get color club in the UK!

  2. That is stunning! :) Wild at heart is one of my favourite polishes :)

  3. Very fun and bright mani, it's very cute :-)
    It's my turn looks amazing.

  4. OMG!!! I really need to get some Konad plates, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!! Love the CG It's My Turn too on you too, stunning!

  5. Looks great! It's funny that some designs looks a bit meh on the plates but then look really good on the nail!

  6. Great mani! Oh, Wild at heart! Be still my own rapidly beating heart ;) Each time I see this polish I have serious lemming pangs.

  7. Thanks so much for all the kind comments everyone!! :)

  8. Yay !
    Look so perfect love it dear

  9. Beautiful manicure. I love the Konad pattern. The holos are also beautiful. I really like the Wild At Heart collection.

  10. I could murder blogger for making me miss this post... these nail varnishses would have been PERFECT to an event I was hosting! The holographic gold is so my type of nail!! lol

    Although i must say i wouldnt be able to chose if i prefer the purple or the gold as both are beautiful. I cant help but think that the gold would look FAB as a tip color!
