Hair and Nails

I dyed my hair last week since my highlights were growing out and starting to look brassy. I figured that I would go darker so my new hair growth would transition into the dyed parts. Hopefully, that will be the case and that the dye wont fade too much.

So this is what I used: (sorry for the poor quality pic, courtesy of google)



Before:



After:


I guess it's not that different, but I'm glad the color evened out a bit.

Now onto the nails. This is just two coats of the face shop's nail color in RD 301. Can't say much for the lasting power because I painted konad and glitter polish over two days later.

Konad done with plate m63. I used the green polish from the Icing set I got a  couple of weeks ago. I don't bother buying the "special" polishes for konad because you can just use regular polish. Just choose extreme colors and expect the results to be a bit muted. Plus, it's a good way to use up your current colors, especially if they are colors you don't use often.


I figured I needed to glam them up a bit more so I added one layer of Milani's "Disco Lights."  See the spahkleee?


Here's everything I used numbered in order.

I also did a bit of nail polish shopping yesterday and picked up a few items.

I hope you ladies enjoy the rest of your week!

Hi Diana :) I like your new hair colour as well - it's a nice rich brown. I need to colour my hair soon as well - this is a good reminder for me!
OMG I love your nails esp with the glitter on top. Good tip with letting us know we can use regular nail polish (contrasting colours)with the konad plates. I've been thinking about getting the konad plates. Did it take you awhile to get a hang of using the plates? Your Mod About You nail polish colour is so pretty. It's not that easy for me to find a nice pink creamy shade like that that doesn't come out too sheer. Great pick!

I've heard lots of good things about the OPI nail envy. I look forward to your review on it!

Hi Diana, :D

I always feel that way too, esp during the day. Try highlighting when you go out in the evenings or on overcast days :p That's what I usually do!

Hey hey hey even if you think the dye isn't that much of a difference it's all good! Better than having a disaster horror story!
Those OPI polishes are nice.
