NOTD - Like a ........... leopard aka Konad time!

So this afternoon after work I actually sat down to do some real Konad nails!
Since my nails and small and crap lately due to removing my acrylic nails I figured it would be a bit easier.

I have always had trouble with Konad-ing due to having BIG nails (due to having big hands)
I was right, smaller nails made it much easier. YAY

After looking at a bunch of nail blogs yesterday I decided to go with a multi-colour leopard print.

Leopard print is good because it doesn't have to be really precise or neat (unlike lace or sharp lines) so I was happy I chose this pattern

I did slip once (yellow nail) I applied top coat too soon to one nail (green nail) and didn't pick up the pattern on the stamper properly on one nail (purple nail)

For my first proper attempt at a Konad mani I am pretty happy with it.

Polishes are:
China Glaze - Sun Worshiper
Color Club - What a Shock
Color Club - Warhol
Color Club - Lava Lamp
Sinful Colors - Dream On
Konad Black

Cute! I gave up on my Konad stamper. Everyone says it's so easy, but I cannot for the life of me get the hang of it

Did you use Konad polish? I found that made a big difference

I did and the actual polish looks ok, but I can't figure out how to place the stamper so the design goes on right. I got this plate with a cute little bow thinking I would put them across the top of each nail. Instead one is across the top, one is sideways, one is too far up and is part on my skin. I'm not a good aimer I guess?

Wow! I am so jealous of your nails right now! I love the colours that you picked!

Lycanthropica said...

yes that is sooo annoying! I think I have worked out a trick to fix that tho, If it works I will let you know :)

Awesome, I would definitely appreciate any tips or tricks you figure out! I tried mine a couple of times and it's been tucked away under my bed ever since.
