As previously mentioned I purchased a Konad Set Starter Kit for Stamping Nail Art. It arrived lightening fast. I believe I ordered it Friday(?) and it arrived Monday. Great seller. It actually came with the new style stamper and not the one pictured.
My first attempts yesterday were awful. I couldn't pick up images or Konad designs. I stretched them horribly laying them down. I figured out I was applying WAY to much pressure both picking up and placing the stamp. All the Vlogs and Blogs say you need quite a bit of pressure but so far I'd say "Just enough to roll the stamp".
My transfers still aren't great, and it isn't fool proof. Practice will make perfect?
This was done with E.L.F. nail polish in Black and special Konad white stamping polish.
Black usually isn't my color for nails, but this Eyeslipsface nail polish is great in black(besides the smell) this color was achieved with only two coats. Love it!
These were all taken pre top coat. Unfortunately, after trying 3-4 different top coats I realized most of the images smeared. I still have a lot of figuring out to do.
