As I mentioned earlier this week, I finally ordered a Konad after Christmas and it arrived last week. The kit I ordered came with the scraper, stamper, three Konad special polishes - red, white and blue - and two image plates. I ordered two extra plates when I bought it so the plates I ended up with are...
My favourite, or the only two I have actually used yet, are M57 and M3 (the right hand two).
The pictures I've taken are really, really rubbish so I apologise, but I wanted to post some and show how I'd done.
The first time I gave it a go was last Sunday and I picked the polish I got for Christmas...
...Foxglove from Virgin Vie. This looks so much better on, it is a gorgeous pink colour, and although I own a lot of pink polishes this has jumped straight to the top of the lot as my favourite. As for the Konad Image Plate I used, I went for the stars on M3. I didn't want to do a full plate for my first try and I wasn't bothered about the stars being in exactly the same place on each nail so I thought it would be easier to do.
So, here are the pictures I took of my first attempt at Konading my nails!
The colour of the polish is just not coming out right on these photos, it is gorgeous IRL. Mid week I attempted to give it another go. and I got SO stressed out! I wanted to do Barry M Pink Flamingo as a base and Barry M's black over the top, using one of the full image plates. I could NOT get the hang of it at all, the black polish hardly showed up and the base coat just kept smudging/would NOT dry!! In the end I took it all off and ended up with the Urban Decay polish I showed in my last post. When that chipped off I again tried to give Konad another go and failed. Again. I bought two Collection 2000 polishes last week after seeing one on Leanne's blog and couldn't resist the other as it was gorgeous!
It looks great in the bottle but when I had it on...I don't think it really suits me, it looked awful. I ended up just putting the same design on as when I used the Virgin Vie, the stars, and I didn't take a photo as it was awful. In fact, on Saturday morning, one of my tweets was...
So as soon as I could I whipped it off and applied the other Collection 2000 polish I'd bought and after messing around for a while I ended up with this.
It is by no means perfect and you can see all the imperfections on it but...I like it, and for someone who is useless with things like this I'm quite pleased with it. :)
I am so sorry for the amount of pictures in this post! Leave a comment if you made it this far!!
