Today’s post is going to be a little different than my usual. Instead of featuring a nail polish, this post will be featuring my new Konad plate! Yaaaaaay I was recently contacted by Nail Polish Canada to review one of 3 new Konad plates and of course I happily agreed.
The new Konad plate I chose to review is M88. It has two different designs, a zebra print style French tip and a lacy design that could be used for your nail tips or any other way really. Even though this plate only has two designs, I like the fact that it has 5 different sizes of the zebra print so you have a different size for each finger. Very convenient considering no one (or at least I think no one…) has the same nail size between their pinky and thumb.
For the lace design, I decided to do a black and white mani. It reminds me of a doily lace, so I wanted to keep it simple and classy I used Zoya Snow White and Konad stamping polish in black. You can probably use this design in a few other ways, but I really liked the look of it as a French tip.
Classy, right? Now for something more trendy. For my next Konad mani I used Borghese Stellare Notte with Konad stamping polish in black for the zebra print French tips. Stellare Notte has a purple/green duochrome effect…I didn’t capture it too much in the following pics since its such a dark color. In person the duochrome is very noticeable and looks really great under the zebra print when it shifts in the light.
Have you tried French tip stamps? I really think patterned tips are a really fun way to add an accent to your nails without taking over too much of your base color.
The other 2 new Konad plates are M86 & M87, you can check these out and all other Konad plates on NailPolishCanada.com. Although, there is a catch if you purchase Konad plates from Nail Polish Canada……. FREE SHIPPING! There is no minimum, all Konad plates ship for free (even to the U.S.). They cost $2 more than if you were to purchase from Konad directly, but the free shipping offsets that since I think the standard shipping cost (for me at least) on Konad’s site is $6-$7. Just wanted to give you all the heads up on that, since I know I HATE paying shipping…its such a party pooper when I online shop.
Hope you enjoyed my stamping post! I know all you polish addicts appreciate some nail art every now and then
