Hey - i am 26 years old and i live in the Uk. I discovered Konad around October 2010 , and my bank balance has yet to recover. i have since collected a very large collection of fauxnads and Konads. the goal for this blog is simple - (1) Further explore the world of nail art stamping. (2) To keep a record of all my experiments with stamping. (3) To show you the potential each stamp has. (4) To show you that you don't have to be a 'Konading' expert to have fun! =)

Stamping Tips and Tricks

Hey guys!

Here is some things I've learnt on my journey on stamping =D
*Work in progress*

...A video Tutorial is incoming

 ******

Make sure you have everything to hand before you start :

- A Image Plate
- Your stamper
- A scraper (Metal, Plastic a old plastic card)
- A base coat.
- Nail polish
- A Top Coat <<< Very Important!
- Polish remover
- Stamping polish - or an opaque polish.
- cotton bud (q-tip)
- Cotton Pads
- paper towels (kitchen roll).

..............If this is your first time Stamping...then also grab

- A medium Nail file ( roughen up your stamper before you begin).
- And a good mood (With lots of patience)


*********************************

Apply a base coat to your nails - then paint your nails.

Make sure your colour is dry

Use a top coat over your base polish. When you make a mistake, you can 
simply give the nail a quick swipe with polish remover on cotton pad,
and the base polish will be fine as only the top coat will be removed. 
- Don't worry about the dull appearance once a top coat is added - It
will look fantastic again.

When I first started stamping, I used a Konad Metal scraper. I hated how it
 scratched the plates. Therefore I no longer use a Konad metal scraper . 
Instead I personally use Old plastic cards. I actually use an old debit card.
 I cut them in half or even quarters (this means I have spare scrapers to use). 
 Keep them clean between stamping so you get a good clean 
swipe each time.  If you do not clean with each swipe , you will find that 
polish gets loaded up causing problems.

Remember speed is essential - The paint on the stamper will 
be very thin ( Meaning it will dry very quickly). Lining up images perfectly
 will come with time and experience.

To be continued ...
