As I mentioned in my last post I’ve really been enjoying mellower polish shades (as well as super bright creme polishes, ironically) and this has translated into a Konadicure I really love- it’s a keeper! I used Polar Bare by OPI, and Givenchy’s Sun Gold with Konad plate m62.
While shopping I picked up these hilarious/cute/ridiculous terry-cloth toe separators! My hand is modelling them, but they’ll be playing a role in my home pedi’s
Some cute decals, I can’t resist putting them on every manicure.
And this is the oddest thing I’ve picked up while shopping- a 3d nail art tube that allows you to recreate those acrylic flowers and accents popular in Japanese nail art. I haven’t quite mastered yet but it’s quite fun, I’d love to include this in future contests or swaps and see what people come up with!
My first attempts at flowers
I hope you enjoyed this post, but before signing off I really wanted to share a small issue with any readers out there.
More than a month back I was contacted by a reputable company that offered to send me some nail products to try out and, I’m guessing, feature on my blog. Of course as any nail fanatic would be I was over the moon, but I replied and told them that I did not live in the United States and that since the company’s website does not ship internationally, I was wondering if that would be an issue. Weeks have passed and I have not even received an email, at least one out of courtesy to let me know that I would not be able to receive the products in question.
I’m not on the prowl for free swag and my biggest joy is picking up random gems during my travels and shopping outings but is it wrong of me to see this as a rude gesture? The company has lost out on a prospective customer, because I really have no interest in purchasing goods from a company that offers products then can’t be bothered to reply to a polite email- especially after experiencing amazing customer service from companies such as Nubar and the like *shrug*. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this, maybe I’m just taking things too personally!
