So, I’m still experimenting w/ all of my Konad image plates as well as what polishes, other than the one white special polish that I have works well with them. I find that thicker polishes like cremes and mattes work best with the Konad image plates, as well as darker colored polishes. Shimmery polishes stamp well too, but they need to have a relatively thick consistency to them to get the best result. I was playing around with some different polishes and image plate designs when it dawned on me that even though the ‘matte trend’ is slightly out of season, a matte/suede type polish would stamp well considering the consistency of them. I put on two coats of Zoya Anaka w/v Seche Vite as a top coat. I then stamped the m63 plate the swirly design and applied another layer of Seche Vite. I find that the stamping come out better on top of a top coat, or maybe its just a safety net for, lol. In actuality, I get a much smoother application w/ applying a top coat before I stamp.
I was beyond happy that the design came out so well and that the color scheme coordinated well together. I’m also going to visit my Mom tomorrow and I think she’ll really get a kick out of my nails. Maybe I should bring my Konad stuff just in case she asks me to give her a manicure. Overall, I think this is a really versatile look and I’m so glad that I got the hang of the whole stamping thing. My images are coming out so smooth and crisp, so I will definitely be posting a sleuth of “konadicures”. Anyhow, I hope you all like it and be sure to let me know what you think!
