Holographic goodness with Teeez! Cool

So today, finally, the weather is getting a lot better, with a lot of sunshine. And you all know what sunshine means right? Yep, Holo's!
This polish is from Teeez! and this is number 02, Cool, it's a light babyblue colour. I used the Gosh Fix base coat which is especially made for holographic polishes.  I've never used this polish without the fix base coat, so I don't really know how application is without. The base coat made application flawless. I used 3 effortless coats of holographic goodness. After that I topped it off with INM out the door topcoat. The topcoat didn't dull the holo-effect in my opinion.
My camera even freaked out with the pictures in direct sunlight, so it couldn't quite capture the full holographic effect. So without further a do, here are the pictures:

China Glaze and Chanel Konad


Today I wanted to do a konad again, I used plate m65 for the rose design. I really felt like using some fall colours, since all the fall collections are all coming out at the moment. So this is a base of three coats of China Glaze Loft-y Ambitions and I stamped the design on with Chanel Particulière. I really adore both colours. However, when I used my topcoat, I noticed it smudged the design a little bit. That's something I really need to practice on with konading.

Gouda Gouda Two Shoes Konad

So, I decided to really wanted to try stamping nailart again, and here it is. I used the leopeard print from plate M57 from Konad. This really is one of my favourite plates!
The base colour I used was OPI's Gouda Gouda Two Shoes and for the stamping I used China Glaze Urban-night. So on to the swatches!

I really loved this combo! At first I merely thought: Mehh.. But after a couple of hours I found I really liked it. It took some getting used to with the konading, but I'm really gonna do this more often. Have a nice weekend!
