Konad *Pic Heavy*

I was sent the Konad T Set* a while back so since then I've been playing around with it and I have to say its pretty easy to do, I imagined it to be really time consuming and tricky but its actually not.

The T set includes everything you need to get you started.
I ordered some nail wheels so it would be easier to show the different designs instead of having to stamp then remove with nail polish remover over and over again. My nails are really weak at the mo so I'm trying to give them a break.

I've just stamped the designs onto the nails so you can get a better idea.

The T set includes 2 special stamping polishes.. White and a black/navy/gunmetal type colour. As you can see in the pics above, some colours work better than others as a stamping background.

Theres a few things you can do to make the whole stamping process a lot quicker and less fiddly.

- Soak a cotton pad in nail polish remover before you start
- Use an old pair of tweezers for lifting the cotton pad to clean the stamping plate and scraper in between stamping each nail
- Make sure you lay down an old newspaper or cloth to save your work surface
- Make sure your background colour is completely dry before you start stamping

I know theres a lot of Konad fans out there, their nails look amazing but I've got a lot of practising to do. If you've tried Konad, what plate do you like best? I've seen a few plates with bows and leopard print designs on them which would probably be my fave designs but theres so many to choose from. If you love nail art but struggle with nail art pens, drawing straight lines etc then Konad would be perfect for you. Everything can be found here, Konad have also came out with a skincare range..

I love how the butterflies from the plate are on the skincare packaging :)

All the background colours used are my own, if you want to know what a certain colour is the just ask.
