NOTD: Nicole By OPI Per-Suede Me And Konad!

Hi everyone!
Hope you are having a great Sunday ;)

Today's NOTD is Nicole By OPI "Per-Suede Me", which is a metallic lilac/grey, sort of chrome shade. I expected brush stroke issues with this, but application was actually very nice and the formula was quick drying.
The swatches below are three coats.



Direct sun...


Shade...


Partial sunlight...






I am happy to report that my Konading skills are improving; slowly I'm starting to get the hang of this, it's all about practice... ;) This is so much fun!!












That's all for now; I hope to see you next week ;)

xoxo

Hi Krista!
Thank you so much; I really appreciate that! ;)

Hi Mary!
Thanks; my skills are far from perfect, but I'll get there eventually, I hope ;)
I also like that color, it was my first Nicole to try, so it was a nice experience ;)

Hi Vanessa! Very pretty color. Your manicure looks perfect. Most of all your Konad is lovely. Nice job. I haven't broken mine out yet. I like the design.

Karin said...

Very pretty! How do you get it so perfect around your cuticles?

Cool chrome colour!

Hello! What a nice dark silver. Your konading looks perfect to me! For some reason..I was not able to see your last blog post. My computer would not open the page. I think my computer was the problem. Just wanted you to know. That I hadn't skipped my friend who shares the letter V with me...lol!

Vanessa said...

Hi Tuli!
Thank you! ;)

Hi Lucy!
Thanks, I am so happy I'm learning :)

Hi Karin!
Thank you! I use a polish clean up pen, they work great! ;)

Hi Phyrra!
Thanks ;)

Hi Alexlyndra!
Thank you; I'm actually quite fond of it myself ;)

Hi Velvet!
No worries; I know you'd never abandon me... lol! :)
Hmmm; Krista had problems as well with the page not opening, it might have been a Blogger problem and maybe not your computer...
Glad it's fixed anyway ;)

Robyn said...

Looks great! And I looooove that color. I would never have given a color like that a second glance had I not seen it on your first. I want it on my toes RIGHT NOW!

Miss Yaya said...

this is such a good looking color! I am practicing with my Konad too, but i have to admit, you are wayyyyy ahead of me in the talent area lol. I hate that you have to clean the plate after every use

Vanessa said...

Hi Robyn!
Thank you! I was very skeptical about this color too when I purchased it, but turned out I actually like it ;)

Hi Miss Yaya!
I bet you'll catch up with me soon ;) I agree it's a PITA to have too clean the plate after each use, but seems there's no way around it ;)

tuli said...

This is a very nice color and it has beautiful shade of grey, and your Konadicure.....wow ! you did an amazing job and it turned out fantastic !!! SO beautiful :-)

Vanessa said...

Hi Tuli!
Thank you, I'm glad you like it! ;)

Karin said...

I would never have dreamed a clean up pen would work that perfectly. I figured they'd be messy!

Vanessa said...

Hi Karin!
They actually do work great ;) Try one!

Brooke said...
