Teal and Silver

Konad image plate M69 stamped with Stargazer silver chrome polish (bargain from Ebay) with No.7 totally teal as the base colour. Don't look too close, it needs tidying a little!

I was really pleased with how well the chrome polish stamped. It dries quicker than the Konad special polish so you really don't have any time to waste when stamping but it gave a nice crisp image and my top coat didn't smudge the design at all.

Silver sparkle

Konad plate M78, Konad black special polish and Rimmel 239 your majesty. Topped off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat (I always use this with Konad)
I am NOT showing you my thumb mail as I broke it pretty low down today at work!

Aqua Fishnet

These are my nails today. I love this one! The polish is Rimmel (60 seconds range) Sky High and I used Konad white special polish & plate M57 (fast becoming my favourite plate!)

The pictures unfortunately show up my not so good clean up job. I had to improvise a little on my thumb nail as the design on the plate just isn't big enough to cover my whole nail (I guess I have wide nails) so I painted a strip in white (not a good white either, must get a better one!) and added some nail stickers that I bought a few weeks back (might have been in Savers but not really sure) and I don't think it looks too bad.
I tried to do this design in Konad black but for some reason my stamper just wouldn't pick up the whole of the image, worked a treat in white, just not in black.

Pink & Black Konad

Did these the day after Boxing Day and didn't really do a good job! The little finger is smudged, most are wonky and the other hand looked a terrible site. Oh well, practice makes perfect!
I used Rimmel (60 seconds range) Euphoria and Konad special black polish & plate M69
