My new Konad tools came in the post last week! I couldn’t wait for them to arrive so I could try them out and see how easy it was. It was easy and I love the finished effects! As soon as I got it I had to try it straight away, so I just used Barry M‘s 312 Indigo over OPI’s Pink Friday that I was already wearing – not bad for a first attempt!
For anyone that is not familiar with Konad, you get a round image plate, a stamper and a scraper. You paint your chosen colour polish over the image you want on the stamper (I used ordinary polish, but I may get a white Konad special polish), scrape off the excess, and place the stamper over the image, using a sort of rolling motion. The design comes straight out of the image plate, and you stamp the image onto your nail using the same rolling motion.
This is Barry M’s 306 Blueberry Ice Cream, and I used 312 Indigo as the stamp colour.
I love this! Although I have since found out you can get a lot of image plates on Amazon for a lot less than the price of Konad plates, so I’ll be getting those ones next time.
This was my second full attempt, the first time I used a dark base with white to stamp, but I found the white didn’t show up as much as I’d hope, which is why I’ll probably be buying the Konad white. I can see me using this a lot though, it’s so quick and easy and you get a fab nails!
On Saturday night it was the 2012 British Soap Awards, and I love seeing what all the girls are wearing. A lot of the stars seemed to be flashing as much flesh as possible whilst still wearing floor length dresses! Michelle Keegan was easily the winner of Best Dressed for me, she looked absolutely stunning in a sparkling midnight blue Jexica gown.
