Nail stamping with Konad plates and polishes

Nail stamping with Konad plates and polishes is good for beginners as well as pros. I believe their nail polishes takes a bit longer to dry which can be good when using them for stamping.

They sell lots of stuff for nail art, such as the specific nail polishes for stamping, regular polishes, nail art pens and even Gel.

Colorful nail art using sponges

Make some colorful weekend nails which are fun as they are or can be a perfect base for nail stamping. This nail art is simple to do, but make sure the nail polishes have time to dry between coats.

Colorful nail art using sponges

  • Make a base, I chose white. Make sure the color covers. Let dry.
  • Cut a kitchen sponge in small pieces to make some colored dots.
  • Just drip some polish from the colorful nailpolishes you wish to use onto the smoother side of the sponge.
  • Damp the sponge lightly onto a couple of nails but put new nail polish onto the sponge after every second nail.
  • Let dry.
  • Put on top coat.

Two colored wall – perfect for the area of the bed

In this small studio apartment the challanges are many and one thing I find a bit boring is having the wall plain by the head of the bed. So, due to small budget, I came up with the idea to paint the area around the beds head area in another color than the wall and voila!

There is now something happening by the bed area. To top it of I put an Ikea picture list/shelf (such as Mosslanda) on top for keeping small thing above the bed.

Painted wall for the bed

I made hanging bed light consisting of just a cord and a large glass lamp (E27) hanging of a bracket beside this headboard. Super Simple!
