277: tutorial - snowflake nails

Tired of all that Christmas shopping yet? I sure am. So why not take a moment and slow down and do your nails? Time to be festive; today's manicure will be snowflake nails with the help of Konad of course!


Here are the completed snowflake nails. Perfect for the holidays!


What you need: Base coat, Red Nail Polish, Konad Special Nail Polish, Quick Dry Top Coat, Konad Stamp Plate, Konad Stamper, Konad Scraper


Today we'll be using the snowflake stamp!


After a basecoat - do one to two coats of red (or any colour of your choice!)


Wait for nails to dry and prepare to be quick at stamping!


Apply Konad Special Nail Polish to Konad Plate


Scrape away excess nail polish


Quickly stamp plate


Make sure that the nail polish has transferred onto stamp with no imperfections


Transfer stamp to nail - do not centre


This is the challenging part. Stamp second snowflake directly beside other one try place it as close as possible without overlapping the first stamp. Repeat on all nails, wait for the polish to dry completely. Apply quick dry top coat as fast as possible. If you apply top coat too slowly, it will smear the detailed Konad stamp.


There you go, amazing Konad Snowflake Nails! Now you can throw on your Ugly Christmas Sweater and attend your next Family Potluck dinner!

  3. I think my nail polish comes off too thick that it dries up too fast? Will try again. I have two konad plates. :P
