Whenever I am feeling in the mood to get creative and create a one-of-a-kind, funky manicure, I always reach for my Konad set. If you are unfamiliar with Konad, it is a stamping nail art brand that comes with various plates you can use to stamp nail designs onto your nails with. To see more photographs, as well as the exact products I used,
- For a base, I used China Glaze Shocking Pink. It is a bright neon pink that really stands out on its own, but looks especially fabulous against zebra stripes. You can also substitute China Glaze Pink Voltage if you have that instead.
- After waiting approximately twenty minutes for the neon pink nail polish to fully dry, I used the black Konad nail polish, and spread it over the Konad M69 Plate. Then, I used my scraper that the Konad kits come with to scrape off the excess polish, and used my stamper to stamp the design on to each nail. I went back afterward with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover to fix any edges I may have stamped over, onto my skin. I finished it off with a Seche Vite top coat, and let it dry. The whole process took me slightly over thirty minutes.
