Konad Nail Demonstration

June 9, 2012

I have been super slack with doing my nails recently, but I decided to give a quick demonstration on how the Konad nail stamper works. I haven't used this in a while, so they didn't turn out the neatest, but it gives you an idea.

Here are some photos I found on my Instagram of Konad nails I have done in the past.



Ok, you're going to have to use whatever colour nail polish you want as a base, I chose Revlon Top Speed in Royal, and then a colour for the pattern, I chose Konad brand white nail polish for this. I find you can use other brands of nail polish for the pattern too, but Konad is a very pigmented nail polish, so if you wanted a white design over a dark colour, a normal white won't be thick enough. You will also need a Konad stamper, a scraper (or an old credit card), the pattern plates, and a top cote nail polish.
 

Step 1: Paint over the design you want to use

 Step 2: Scrape off the excess nail polish, leaving nail polish in the pattern

Step 3: Stamp the design 

Step 4: Apply the stamp to your nail

You will need to repeat this for each nail, and in between you will also need to clean the plate with nail polish remover. There will also be some excess on your skin, so you will need a cotton bud and nail polish remover to clean up around the nail. Then apply a top cote of nail polish

Presto! Quick and easy nail art.

    1. It's a really cheap way to get patterned nails, it's cheaper than those nail strips, and you have so many more options. Thanks so much for reading and commenting x
