Konad stamping kits have intrigued me for a long time because a) I’ve never dabbled in nail art before and b) Konad stamping nail art is supposed to be easy to use.
There were a couple of Konad Special Nail Polishes and a few Konad Image Plates in my stash. But it wasn’t until last month when I went a little crazy (okay, a lot crazy) and bought tons of new image plates by Konad!
Finally sucked up the courage to try my hand at some nail art. To my delight, it really is easy to do. Although it was my first time doing it, the results were impressive – looked like I had spent a lot more time to achieve this purple and black Konad zebra nail art!
What do you think about this design?
OPI Do You Lilac It? with Konad Zebra Print Swatches
(All swatches are with 1 coat of Nail Tek Foundation III Base Coat, 2 coats of OPI Do You Lilac It?, 1 coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, 1 coat of Konad Special Nail Polish (Black) & then another coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat)
What I Used to Create This Zebra Manicure:
- Konad m57 Image Plate: $6.99 USD
- Konad Special Nail Polish (Black): 11 mL – $6.99 USD
- Konad Stamper & Konad Scraper (metal): $4.99 USD for both
- Konad Image Plate Holder: $3.99 USD
- Where to Buy: Konad Stamping Nail Art, Trans Design, Head2Toe, WowSoCool, OC Nail Art & select mall kiosks
I really love the Konad m57 image disk and how the black zebra stripes over OPI Do You Lilac It? turned out. Considering that this was my first time trying any kind of nail art, I’m very impressed with the results and with how easy it was to use all the products. With the Konad nail stamping products, you can truly achieve professional-looking designs in minutes! I’ll be trying out more image plates again soon!
Have you tried the Konad nail art stamping kits? Which are your favorite image plates to use? And have you tried using regular polish instead of the Konad Special Nail Polishes? I’d love to hear about your experiences!
