So when I started looking into all the fun new products and techniques I was quick to come across the Konad Stamping System, and considering I had a few extra dollars from my birthday I splurged. I purchased the double-sided stamp, four plates and five special polishes from www.WowSoCool.com. I tried using various promotion codes but they were all expired :(. Of course as soon as it came in the mail I had to experiment. I was dying to try Secret Peri-Wink-Le from China Glaze that I'd just bought and did two coats of that as my base then tried the swirl design from plate m63. The first nail didn't transfer and I was worried the whole concept was a fluke. I pushed much harder and the image transferred OK. Not a perfect execution but I'll get there.
As you can see I did some of the swirls different ways but it's more playful that way. This was also the first time I used the famous Seche Vite topcoat which amazed me with its finished texture (of course the warning label had me a bit nervous so I may try to find an alternative). I'm in love and there's so many different ways to use these plates! I did tell myself that I'm not allowed to buy more until I've used each design I already have once.
