Hi everybody, I don't know about you guys but I've been totally obsessed with my nails lately. I've never been really a nails person, but since youtube I've been so much more conscious of the way my nails look when showing products.
I was told about this system a few weeks ago by a friend. I could not believe how awesome and easy it looked. Of course I had to try it for myself. So for those of you who don't know what the konad system is I'll explain.
The system is a nail art stamping set. You basically get a double ended stamper(one small for detail work and one large for all over designs), a dull blade like squeegy, and a stainless steal plate with several engraved designs. Konad suggests that you use their special nail polishes, but I have been using regular drugstore polishes. I have gotten the best results using thicker formula polishes. The Konad system is fun and easy. It's good for all ages( the blade is totally dull). It is messy, so be sure to have a mat and nail polish remover on hand.
. Place the plate down with the design you want facing right(or left if your left handed).
. Paint a layer of polish over your chosen design.
. Take the blade and slide it across the polish.
. Place stamper on the metal plate.
. Stamp your nail( work quickly).
. Put on a top coat to protect your design.
Would you like to see this process in action ?
I hope that was helpful for you guys lol. It takes a little time to get used to it, but the precess is lot's of fun.
These are some of the plates I have there are tons of different designs available. The possibilities are
This is the design I chose. I am constantly thinking of which plates I'll use next :) I hope you guys try this fun system <3
