The photo quality isn’t too great, but I’ve really been getting into Konad nail art, so I wanted to start sharing some of the “styles” that I’ve been wearing. And, if anything, I hope that the photo at least gives you a rough idea of how my nails look!
Last week, as you’ll know, I reviewed my new OPI Shrek Mini Collection, within which came the gorgeous lilac Rumple’s Wiggin’. As soon as I saw it I wanted to use a dark purple colour for the design, but the basic set that I own, only came with black, white, green, red and pink. So, I attempted using Rimmel’s Blue My Mind, which is an amazing purplely blue colour. But, I really don’t recommend trying to stamp using anything other than Konad, and I’m not just saying that to get you to buy Konad (because I know how expensive they are), because I’m not hear to tell what to, and what not to buy.
Reasons other polishes are bad for “stamping”:
- Normal polishes aren’t as thick and gloopy as the special polish
- The Stamper doesn’t always pick up normal polishes
- Normal polishes smudge more easily a. during the stamping process and b. once they’re physically on your nails
- Normal polishes take longer to dry, giving more time for them to be smudged and means that you have to wait longer before applying a Top Coat.
