Sorry for the dry fingertips! I wash my hands a lot. I wasn't planning on posting this manicure but then decided "why not?"... I had just received my order from OC Nail Art (www.ocnailart.com) and wanted to try out my new Konad plates! This is plate M71. It is definitely one of my favorites. Very girly... lots of lace! I used OPI's Louvre Me Louvre Me Not for the base color and then stamped over it with M71 in Konad's Special Polish in Black Pearl, which looks navy in the bottle. I see a lot of bloggers using regular nail polish to stamp with, but I wouldn't recommend it. Not unless you do a lot of experimentation first... Some polishes don't stamp thick enough which will make the image barely noticeable. I'll just buy the special polishes, that way I know I will get a good image everytime. My dad always said, "Do it right the first time and you won't have to do it again"... That's for sure! Oh, by the way, you will also need Konad's Top Coat to seal the image onto your nails. Other topcoats may smear your design!
Thanks! This design was a little tricky! The lines etched in the image plate are very thin so I had a hard time picking up all of the ink with my stamper! I managed, obviously, but it did take a few tries sometimes!
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
