NOTD

My first Konadicure!

When I first heard about Konad, I was reminded of a story my workmate Lisa(HIIII, if you’re reading this) told me about being conned into spending $50 on a nail stamping kit for her little girl, and wondered if it was the same thing.  She dug it out for me to try and lo and behold, it was!

I’ve just attempted my first Konadicure and I can’t say I’m bowled over, not like last week’s Barbie nails.  If you want to know more about Konad, Leanne has done a wonderful FAQ post which you should check out.

Anyway on to the nails!

I used C2000 polish in Wham as a base (I’m planning a nude and grey outfit for lunch next week so I wanted it to match) and used the white Konad special polish.

I think it was the plate I didn’t like more than anything.  I found the stamping really easy, but I just didn’t like the designs.  The butterflies on my thumb are really pretty but the other floral designs are nothing special and don’t even really look like flowers when they stamp.  I think the design is too intricate to ever look really good on a Konad.  The plate I used was a M36.

I eventually got sick of looking at it, took off the rubbish flowers and put a butterfly on every nail-much nicer!

I did enjoy using it though and I’m going to treat myself to one soon, but choose diff plates!

To contrast the Konad, I also used my Poundland nail art set to make a rhinestone french polish look on one finger of each hand.

So what do you think? Have you tried Konad?

XOXO

What plate was it? 'Cause I recognise the butterflies from M78 (which I have) but I don't recognise the flowers!
Thanks for the mention :) xo

The color combination you chose is nice, I like the muted tone.
