Basic Konad Nail Tutorial

Yup, i am finally doing that nail tutorial i promised.
This is also going to be the first time i write about my konad stamping set which i bought over a year ago XD

Konad Stamping set


Sadly i could not figure out how to take photos of my nails whilst i am painting it.
So..i decided to get some fake nails XD
nail01
There’s a funny story about these fake nails. When i asked the lady at the store, she told me they were $25HKD [about USD$3.50]. I assumed she meant it was that price for one set [10 aka one for each finger] Turns out it was the price for the whole box [as above] No idea if this is a good price as �i never wore fake fingernails in my life. I always think i will probably end up eating them by mistake cos i am so careless hahaha

Note: This is a REALLY basic idea tutorial and how konad is used. I know a lot of you ladies out there already own it so its probably not very exciting for you. But i promised to do this for a few ladies who had not used or heard of konad before.

Items used:

The nail polishes

From left: Konad Special nail polish in black, Pink �Bonbon nail polish, Parado French Manicure Nail polish

And the konad stamping set

I have no clue what the number of the plate used is [i threw all the packets away and never wrote the numbers on the back of the plate, i probably should have]

Ok onto the nail painting!

Step 1: 2 Coats of Pink Bonbon nail polish

Step 2: Cover konad design you are using with a thickish coat of konad special nail polish

Step 3: Scrap excess off with the konad scraper

It kinda looks like below [ink is left in the etched surface]

Step 4: Lift the design with the konad stamper

Step 5: Stamp onto your nail

Step 6: Do a french manicure with the silver nail polish

Note how the nail polish has a special end specially made for easy french manicures. ^^

Finished product

Add topcoat of choice ^^

And how my nails look like

Note, these are my REAL nails. I do not wear fake nails.

Where i bought:
Konad nail polish, stamper kit

I bought these in Hong Kong a year ago directly from the distributor when i came here on a business trip. You can visit their store in Sino Centre in Mongkok. Many people have said that you do not need to use konad nail polish, just a nail polish with a thick consistency. However since i already bought so many bottles of konad nail polish, i never bothered to try anything else.

PinkBonbon nail polish

Matsumoto Kiyoshi drugstore in Japan

Parado french manicure nail polish

7-11 in Tokyo. Parado is exclusively sold in 7-11 conbini stores in Japan.

This tutorial has made me realise, its a lot easier to do my own nails then a fake nail. It was so hard to hold and direct. Whereas if its my own nail, i can turn my hand to fit the konad stamp better and its far more steady.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
And i am hoping you guys dont hate my nail tutorials too much cos i want to do another one using the nail polishes Miss Nikki gifted me ages ago. Its long overdue but at least i finally figured out how to do a tutorial [aka using the fake nails haha since i have so many] If you like nail tutorials, you should check out Miss Nikki’s cos she has loadsa good ones!

XOXO Yumeko

p.s is it obvious i am trying to squeeze in 3 posts this week? i have no idea how i used to blog daily!!!

      the paint kinda dries immediately. think of it like a rubber seal. so when u lift it up, its like lifting a thin rubbery film.
      next time i am in singapore, will bring it with me to do ur nails <3

          i know a lot of ppl say it always looks nicer at the salon and i agree sometimes
          but i find it theraputic to do my nails.
          once its all done [no matter how it looks like] i feel like everything can be better
          i am so corny

      yes and no. because my nails are naturally quite large..doing a full design [say like leopard print or fishnet style] is difficult as i cant match up the seams well.
      if its just for a basic flower or print like this, its quite easy i feel.
