Coach Poppy nails and an E.L.F. polish Konad

Want to win 4 Konad image plates? Then please enter our giveaway! (links above). So far there isn't a whole lot of entries and it's a really nifty Konad prize where you can pick what YOU want.

I'm really liking the Coach Poppy project. It has connected me to many blogs I might not have otherwise stumbled upon! So I did a little Konad tribute. I can't tell you the name of the polish, its completely unlabelled. I think it came from a Nail Color Institute kit I got for Christmas. I'm not wanting to win the $2500 Coach gift certificate, I just like being involved.

After I cleaned that off I wanted to do a white Konad with review. E.L.F. white nail polish is OK. I mean, it's streaky and sheer. It took me 3 coats to get this look and it was still streaky, luckily the Konad nail stamp hid it well.

For the stamping I used Konad image plate m71 which is a really vintage looking girly plate. It's one of my faves so far and I nabbed it on an Amazon sale for about $4 or so. Woo!

The stamp color is Konad Sky Pearl special polish. I love this color - it's a medium sparkly blue but the shimmer isn't overbearing. Really lovely.

My stamping didn't come out perfect. I was OK with that. Unfortunately after adding a top coat it wouldn't dry! *SAD* So I had to remove it. I need to find a really good opaque white polish, any suggestions?
