Konad M85 + China Glaze Dance Baby & Prism

Whoops! I meant to post this much earlier today but I got a little sidetracked. Better late than never!

Today I'm showing you another manicure using my brand new Konad M85 stamping plate which you can get right here on Nail Polish Canada.
This post is going to have way too many pictures because I loved every stage of this manicure! I'll start with one of the finished product and then after the jump I'll show you a bunch more.

Cute right? I wore this same combo on my fingers and toes because I liked it so much!
Keep reading for more pictures.

This started with 2 coats of China Glaze - Dance Baby, a lovely pink creme from the Electropop collection.
The formula was wonderful and I'm really happy I picked this up. I felt like I didn't need another pink creme but then I saw this on a bunch of blogs and decided, yes, I need another pink creme.

Then for some reason I felt it would be perfect to layer one of the new China Glaze Prismatics over this color, and it came out awesome!
This is one very thin coat of China Glaze - Prism.

This was such a cool effect over the pink, it changed the color of the pink to a more silvery pink, plus the duochrome-look of the glitter gave the entire thing a blue or purple cast depending on the light.
I was staring at my nails all the time!
I also love the sprinkling of multi colored glitter in the Prismatics which gives it that little bit of extra interest.

Stamping time! I added the bubble-looking image from Konad M85. Konad plates are $8.75 on NPC and they always ship free within Canada which is really cool!

I got a bunch of compliments on these nails. "OMG they look like bubbles!"

I stamped using Wet N Wild Black Creme. I think this image would look even cooler if you did "subtle stamping" - using two very similar colors to create the look. Or maybe even stamp it twice using different colors for a sort of 3-D effect!

I was sad to take off this mani after I ruined it at work. But thankfully it is still on my toes!

Keep an eye out for posts involving the other images on this plate later in the week! And don't forget to check out Nail Polish Canada for all your polish needs. (I just spotted a great deal - the Deborah Lippmann Get This Party Started Trio is on sale for $44.95 and ships free within Canada!)

Plate sent for honest review.


  1. So pretty! I'm loving the prisms polish. I wonder if they are similar to the Sally Hansen Gem Crush polishes? Hmm...

    1. the Gem Crush ones have dupes for the Eye Candy collection as well as some other popular glitters. however, Wet N Wild has now put out some dupes for the Prismatics! check them out here:

  2. This is so gorgeous, I absolutely love it! Dance Baby is such a beautiful color, but the bottle I got is extremely thick :( Perhaps I'm the only one who had this issue. PS - It really does look like bubbles! :D

  3. Beautiful! That stamp would look great in two different colours in a mani!

  4. Whooo looks like a party on your nails with the stamping!

  5. So cute! They do look like bubbles. :D

  6. These two polishes look great together!
