Since I haven't blogged in a while, I have lots and lots of manis to show you that I've worn over the last month or so. I've written about half of them in draft and will schedule them in, with a few new mani's sandwiched inbetween - so you might see my nails go from claws to nubs and back again a few times!
I treated myself to a Konad Special White polish a while ago now, because I was sick of thinking of a great idea for a stamping mani only then having to scrap it because of not having a white polish that stamped properly. I was always a bit reluctant to buy Konad polish, since you can't use it like normal polish, only for stamping, but I can now say it is so worth it. The white especially, and I will be ordering a black soon. The difference, even between this and what I considered a good-for-stamping regular polish is incredible – opacity, dry time, how well it picked up on the stamper. Yep, I'm a convert. I now want a red and blue konad polish too, and that's just for starters...
Anyway, you know I said I wanted it because I was sick of thinking of a great idea for a stamping mani only then having to scrap it because of not having a white polish that stamped properly? Do you think I could come up with an idea for a mani once this arrived? Law. Of. Sod. But I eventually went for this – Finger Paints Grape Gumball (which I won in a giveaway, thank you Ashley!) with a floral design stamped in white. Grape Gumball is super pretty, it has all these teeny flecks of iridescence in it that are just lovely.
The stamping was so good I got asked twice if they were nail wraps. Pretty chuffed :)
So, seriously, if you can never find a white polish that stamps well just splash out on the Konad. I got mine for £5 for 11ml plus a couple of quid postage on ebay, so really it ended up cheaper than all the other white polishes I've bought and tried for stamping...lesson learned.
