OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries with Konad Color Club Yatchy Yadda


My Konad design matches the flower on the Color Club polish!



OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries
This color is just as fun as its name!  It applied smoothly and covered well with two coats (although the first coat was a little splotchy).  It also dried pretty quickly.  For the Konad design, I used Color Club Yachty Yadda and plate m51.  I love this design and color combination!  I think it looks so pretty.

with no flash:


Purple is notoriously hard to photograph, but I feel this polish looks the most like the first two pictures (with the flash).

Hey Brooke, I was wondering if you could do a post about polish remover? Obviously you use it frequently, but it doesn't seem to damage your nails! I always feel like someone has sanded my nails really thin after removing polish, so I'm wondering what brand/method you recommend. Thanks!

Pretty! Essie is my fave, but OPI has lots of fun colors, too!

Love those pinks that are so intense as the OPI here. And the color combo is really nice ;D

Brooke said...

Thanks for the suggestion, Julie! That's a great idea (and I do use remover way too often!). I'll do a post about that soon :) Thanks for the comment!

Thanks Gildedangel! You're so good about commenting :)

Thanks Mayra :) This color combo has got to be one of my favorites!

Thanks a lot Alegra!!

Brooke said...

I totally agree rigaH! This is one of those really pigmented colors - I love it! I love the color combo too. I was sorting through my polishes during a break from research and thought these two looked really nice together - so I had to try them out :) Thanks!!

Brooke said...

Thanks Cheryl! I only have two Essie polishes so far, but I LOVE them (especially Mint Candy Apple) and can't wait to get more. What are your favorite Essie colors?

This is perfect! Very sweet :)

Brooke said...

Thank you AllYouDesire!! I think 'sweet' is the perfect word to describe these flowers :)

This is too cute! I have been on the fence about Ate Berries in the Canaries. Haha. I did love that collection though, I'll probably end up picking it up! The two colors together are perfect.

Brooke said...

Thanks Nicole! I was on the fence about this one too - for a while. I finally got it a couple weeks ago at Sephora when they were buy two, get one free and I had a $5 off coupon. Now I don't know why I waited so long - this polish really surprised me! It's such a beautiful purplish-pink. I'm so glad I got it - now I want to get some more polishes from the Espana collection!

Hey! I just happened upon this blog and I am instantaneously obsessed! I love doing manicures! My questions are: 1. How do you keep your nails so long and strong? what techniques and products would you recommend?
2. what do you use to create the designs on your nails? And any tips on the actual painting of the nails? you do a great job!!!!
thank you so much!
