More Fun With Konad

Some more reader requests- Konad stamps!

I know these are a little sloppy and there's pieces of cotton ball all over my nails- I had to rush a little!

I also stupidly forgot to write down what the plate numbers were, thinking I could remember them by looking at them- hahaha, yeah, right Scrangie! I apologize- I will go look at my plates and add them to this post :)

The base color I'm using is Color Club Pink Rush (and Power Play in a few pictures) and the Konad polish is Konad Special Polish in Black Gold.


Flower, flower arch, two flowers with dots, swirly design, large flower with vines.


French tips: Fishnet, animal print, hearts, flowers. Paisley design.


Plaid, dot gradient, argyle, fishnet, zebra.


Double bows, stars, hearts, double flowers, bow with ribbon.


Lovelt with hearts and stars, polka-dotted bow, heart cluster, french tip swirl design, french tip leaves design (my favorite!)


Konad french tip plate.


Butterfly, squiggly thing, weird star with arm things, flower arch, fleur-de-lys



The plate I use most often! Spider, jolly roger, scorpion, cobra, unicorn!


I have tons of Konad plates, so if there's a specific plate or design you're interested in seeing, drop me a line! If I have it I'll be sure to do a picture.

Konad is super fun. If you like nail art at all, you would really like this. I get mine from www.wowsocool.com.

  1. Thanks so much for that Scrangie, those frenches are amazing. I love the fishnet & zebra best though!! I've got black leopard print over power play today... :-D
    You're the best blogger ever, not only do you have a gazillion polishes to swatch for us but you have loads of other cool stuff too... I was looking for pics of konad art done by 'regular' gals for ages and couldn't find any until...
    Scrangie to the rescue yet again! :-)

  3. Carla, you're very welcome! I have some of the other french tip design plates that I'll work on doing pictures of after I finish my OPI France swatches :)
    And, thank you *so* much!! That means so much to me... I'm touched! :D

    Masa_inn, I really dig the scorpion too, but the spider might be my favorite :)

  6. These are awesome! I've been debating over whether I should get a Konad Kit or not for a while now. You've convinced me I need one lol! I just have one question. Do you have to use the Konad brand nail polish for the stamps, or could you use just regular polish? Thanks for the swatches. They're really cool!

  8. Wow! I am so tempted every time I see these on you or Sanna, but when push vomes to shove I am not sure I can handle them... I am such a klutz. I can't even get my nailpolish on without messing something up.

    But the zebra stripes... oh, how great it looks!

  9. I'm intrigued to how this works! I think it looks awesome, and I'd love to see some kind of tutorial and/or a list of things (preferably with pictures!) that are needed for these! Is it difficult? Do you need special polish? I want stamps too!

  10. oooooohhhhhh! thank you for having my request done.
    It all looks amazing.
    Do you need to use only Konad special polish or any polish will fit ?
    Now i will have to buy them at my area [good luck for me....]

  11. Very cool. I just ordered a couple plates and a stamper. I didn't buy the special polish, though. I hope I can work with the thicker polishes I have here.

  12. Ooooh, these look lovely on you. Well, I'm a Capricorn so should you have one, put it on a nail! ;D

  13. ...but it's okay with the unicorn. I can always use my imagination or take my glasses off! ;D

  14. Danielle, thanks! They are very easy and inexpensive. Plates are $7 and I'm pretty sure the scraper and stamp set is $5. And maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist- I thought the cotton pieces would make everyone go ewwww fuzzy! lol :D

    Claire, I've found that the Konad polish works best because it's really thick, but most regular nail polish will work. With regular polish, dark colors seem to show up better, and thicker colors also show up more :)

    Sanna, your Konad designs always look so good, it makes me want to use mine more!

    Sminkan, the zebra stripes are probably the easiest to do because it's big enough to cover your whole nail and you don't have to worry about it being crooked :)

    Chaosophia, sure I can do that! It doesn't require much, and it's very easy to do!

    Nitzan, you're welcome! You can use any polish with it, but dark colors show up better. The Konad polish works best, but you don't *need* it to do the stamps!

    Azia, you should be okay with the regular polish. If it doesn't show up enough, give it a few seconds to dry on the plate before you scrape it off :)

    Rocketqueen, hehe I think there might be a Capricorn stamp on the zodiac plate... I'll have to go look!

  21. Prettybeautiful, thank you! I get my Konad Special Polishes on wowsocool.com and head2toebeauty.com, but you really don't *need* the Konad ones- a lot of regular polishes work fine for doing Konad designs :)

  24. Beautiful designs, Scrangie! You make it look so simple! I've never used Konad before but I am thinking about buying a kit. Is the stamp easy to clean? Can it be cleaned with nail polish remover?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anita, thank you! It is very easy to use and clean- all you need to do to clean it is wipe it with a little nail polish remover :)
