Barielle Aura Angora + Konad Grey Pearl

Sorry. I ain't mastered the art of Konad - just got a polish by them.

The Barielle is not flattering. One of those effin' ugly shades known as fugly. But I like it. 2 coats. Not nearly as glossy as I imagined it would be. Top coat was absolutely essential.

I much prefer the Grey Pearl but BUT BUT it is an example of Jennifer thinking she knows it all.
See the vertical line? Course you do.
That's there because this polish never dries.
Not that they didn't warn me.
"Do not use this polish for any purpose except Konad as it will not dry under normal usage."
Something like that. Words to that effect.
But I knew better.  Or thought I did.
OK, Konad-people, you were right and I was wrong. You warned me. I went ahead. I admit it. It's designed to be used as a thin layer to be superimposed over a base colour using the Konad methods and tools. Not just slathered on like I intended.

No matter. It's very pretty.
Have you ever tried to use a product in a way it wasn't quite designed for?

  1. lol. that's so funny! I found this page b/c I wanted to see a picture of the grey pearl color konad polish. Then when I saw your pic, I thought to myself, "Oh NO! You're not supposed to use the 'special polish' to paint your nails...I wonder if anything terrible happened along the way...?"
    wah! too bad it didn't ever dry. I like it way better than that barielle too! C'est la vie, I guess. XD
