I first discovered Konad on blogs and watching nail tutorials, since I hadn't seen anything quite like it in order to create quirky nail art designs, I decided to place an order on Amazon. To begin with I ordered the stamper and scrapper (the short stamper) image plate M57 and a mini special polish in a lovely bright blue.
I fell in love with amazing designs and experimented with a whole host of base coat colours. Then I went on holiday to Florida last summer. In the factory outlets they would have ladies selling Konad in carts. It was so much cheaper over there, so I took full advantaged and stocked up!
I got a kit where i could choose what plates I got and what three special varnishes. I opted for M35, M63 and M65. I chose black, white and red for the special polishes. the kit also included a tall stamper and another scraper. (Am kicking myself for not buying more to be honest!)
Anyways, looking at other people's blogs I know that Konad is not new news and for many the novelty may have worn off. There is a reason why I am still so fond of these kits.
Up until about three years ago I was a nail biter. I admit it. I had horrible nails, actually wait, I had NO nails. Then I saw a picture of a group of my friends and I toasting and I saw my short stubby nails and was disgusted. It was seeing that picture that made me realize what a horrible habit it is. It was down to willpower that I stopped. I also liked having cute painted nails (something I could only dream about before)
I am constantly expanding my collection of polishes and testing out new designs.
Here I chose a neon yellow base and stamped with konad black special polish and selected a design from image plate M63.
