Starting off Konad week!

Okay, Konad Week got off to a very late start. New collections take precedence over old stuff since they're more useful if they're posted before or at the same time they're released... So Konad had to wait a couple days.

I'll make up for it by carrying it into next week!

Anyway, to start things off, here are some random pictures of me playing with Konad plate m70. I've discovered a few new favorites!



My goal for this week is to review one or both of the Coraline Konad kits, possibly review my prize from the OC Nail Art contest (the Konad Salon Pro case!) and post a few pictures of Konad designs on my nails. I've been trying to do a Konad tutorial but I keep messing it up and starting over... I need a second person to take pictures while I'm doing it!

  3. I was given the deluxe kit for my birthday, and I should pick it up tomorrow, very excited to try it out!

    Grats on the Pro Case, nice win! I'll be interested to see your Coraline kit reviews, trying to decide whether to shell out for them or not at the moment. :)

  9. M70 is on my wish list. The paint swirl skittles is a dynamic design. I love how it can be achieved with the Konad without the Jackson Pollack textural approach!

    The Coraline sets are my favorite thing from Konad! I can't wait to see what you do with them.

  10. Scrangie, I dearly wish you would post a tutorial because Konad scares me. So I'm going to make the suggestion that your webcam could take pictures while you paint. You'd only be able to do one hand at a time, but maybe that could still work?

    So cool! Wish I could do something like that. :)
