Morning everyone. We hope that you are enjoying your weekend.
Many girls have discovered the wonder of Konad Nail Art, but a lot of you guys have been weary of purchasing anything, and asking how exactly it works, well here is our very basic How-To Guide to Konad Nail Art.
What You will Need:
- Stamp and Scraper
- Image Plate
- Regular Nail Polish
- Special Nail Polish
- Image Plate Holder
- Nail file and buffer
File your nails so that they are all a similar shape and size. This just keeps them looking neat. Follow this, by buffering each nail in order to remove previous nail polishes and any other dirt that may be on your nails that could ruin your design, and/or could prevent the polish drying to the desired effect.
Choose any regular nail polish (click here for a selection of the regular polishes that Konad have on offer), and carefully paint each of your nails, wiping off the excess on the rim of the bottle beforehand. Allow to dry, and repeat for asecond coat if necessary.
Once your nails have completely dried, take an an image plate (click here to see every plate that Konad has to offer) and secure it into your image plate holder.
Take your choice of special polish (click here to choose one that is perfect for your design), and paint across the design that you wish to use. using different colours for each part of the design, if you so choose.
Using the scraper, remove the excess, hence unneeded polish from the plate, making sure that if you have opted to choose multiple polish colours, to scrape sideways, so that the two colours do not become blended into one another.
Press your stamper hard down onto the design, “picking up” the polish in the shape of the design. Check that only the design appears on your stamp, and remove any excess using your finger or a tissue.
In a rolling movement, following the naturally rounded shape of the surface of your nail, carefully press the stamp firmly across your nail, in one swift motion. Repeat Steps Four to Seven until you have decorated every nail.
Finish off the look, with a top coat (click here to find one). For a simple shiny look, choose a clear top coat, and for a more sparkly look, choose a glitter-based top coat.
Looking perfect? No? Don’t worry, practice makes perfect, as they say. Share your first attempts with us, and enjoy your nails!
