Bys Black Satin and China Glaze Admire Konad

A very unimaginative blog title I know but to the point! I decided to do a quick manicure tonight using Bys Black Satin for my base. Bys is a little Aussie brand that sells very affordable yet reasonable cosmetics. Some of their products look a bit hit and miss however their polishes have a reputation for being pretty darned good and for a fraction of the price.

I picked up Black Satin for only $3.75 from Kmart but I have seen it a little cheaper at dollar stores. It’s a black crème that only needs 2 coats for a perfect finish. It applied smoothly and I didn’t have any problems with it except for me getting it all over my hands LOL. Oops!

I then Konaded using a fairy like design from GCOCL plate D02 and
China Glaze Admire.


Now its times like these I wish I was ambidextrous. My konad-ing on my right hand turned out smudgy and very dodgy so I added some flowers also from GCOCL plate D02 using Ulta 3 Silver Grey and topped with Seche Vite.


Ulta 3 is another great little Aussie brand that does fantastic polishes and for only $2!!! I bought Silver Grey hoping to use it for konad-ing as it looks chrome in the bottle, but when I swatched it came out VERY sheer. However it actually konads great so I’m very pleased! =)

Hope you like it!

  1. I'm not a big fan of black polish, but when the konad stamps on it, makes it a million times better. :)

  2. @Alice: The thing I hate about black polish is that it's such a pain to get off but I like to wear it when I'm in a rebellious mood =p It just makes the konad pop!
