1) What is your favourite bath product and why?
I do not have a bath at home, and in my shower I only use Sanex zero, because of my supid sensitive skin.

2) If you could choose to be a celebrity for a day, who do you wanna be? why?
I love to be Monica B. (actress from Malena), because she is the most beautiful woman on earth.

3) Meteor showers or nice, long shower?
Kinde long no hours but still long and very hot!

4) Most hated word/slang?
I speak dutch, and I do not really have words I hate. But I can not stand it when
people in love call each other stupid names like; liefje, scheetje, ...

5) Exams or essays? (haha cant resist this question :P )
I work already, but back in the days I rather did essays...

Wet paint nail glaze system

Today I placed an order with this shop http://www.wetpaintsystem.com
I  had never heard of it before, just found it when I was looking on the web for some nice konad stuff.
The idea is to make your own colors, like frankenpolish but not so messy...
You need a basecolor (they sell very nice colors) and you can change the color by adding a glaze color.
They also have special topcoats.

I bought:
10 bottles of glaze 19.99$
5 spfx topcoats 9.99$

and also 1 extra glaze called mirror for 5$. As you can see the prices are very cheap and the shop is very friendly (I had some difficulties with the payment and they gave good information)

I'll keep you posted... can't wait.

My relation and history with nailpolish

Like all you girls I’ve been a polish-addic for a while now. I like to share my polishpast with you.
- First time wearing polish:
 I think I was about 8 years old. My mother does not wear any make-up or polish so I used a very old and thick polish my grandmother had laying around.
- First time experimenting 
 When I was 11 I went to a very oldfashiond all girls school with uniform!!!!We where not allowed to use any make-up or polish. So in the weekends I went crazy with blue, yellow, green, ….
I ALWAYS used polish on my toes, the nuns of my school could not see that…
- First time nailarting:
 I think I had to be around 16 years old. I used some stickers or just one color stripe… Kept it simple then.
When I was 18 I went to art school ( I have a master degree in arts now). There I started to use acryl paint and small markers to draw on my nails. Keeping the manicure intact was a big problem then, the topcoat alwarys smeard the whole design.
- How I met Konad:
 This is quit a special story! I had my first Konads in 2003!!! Back then I had never seen any sets or kits. I’m graphic designer for a toy compagny and one day we got an e-mail from a compagny in the east. They showed us some new stuff they had. And there it was. I searched on the net and placed an order with a company in Korea.
3 bottels of polish, 2 plates stamp and scraper ( the black plastic one, better than the metal scraper)

Then I stopped a few years with Konad because my polish chipped after one day… I just used polish and no nail art.
In 2007 I bought a house with my boyfriend (soon to be husband….) We worked every day very hard in it. I went for Acryl nails, and this way you polish can hold up to a week.
A good reason to start with nail art again. Now (I’m 29) we live in our beautiful new house and I enjoy to do my nails on a quit evening.

So for 18years there has not been a day without nailpolish, sometimes only the toes.

New image plates "Chez-Delaney"

Delaney has some brand new image plates, these designs I have never seen before.
This is the first one but many will follow. X-mas, Pirate, Hello Kitty,...
Very nice indeed!!!

Hopefully more shops will make their own image plates, or new Konad plates would also be welcome.
Konad now has a patent on imageplates, so this could cause some problems in the future.


Hi, this is my new blog. My name is Lacey and yes I'm a polish-addict...
