Konad Plate M81

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    Last night while watching a movie, I decided to play with some of the full nail patterns from Konad plate M81 that I couldn't use on longer nails. I was watching a horror movie which included Michael Berryman in the cast - it wasn't the kind of thing that required intense thought!

    The first, I used the criss cross pattern in Pastel Violet Konad Special Polish, using one coat of Revlon Punch Chrome as the base color. Not my best stamping job ever, but I'm still getting used to the new nails, so what the heck...

    One I'd had my eye on for a while was the pattern that's animal print between diagonal lines. For that, I used Color Club Poptastic as the base and Black Pearl Konad Special Polish for the stamping.

    Those two, I did only on my left hand since I was just playing around while my bad movie was playing. At that point, I was getting bored and just did today's Nails of the Day, which is M81's geometric pattern in Violet Pearl Konad Special Polish over two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Bubblegum Pink, one of my new loves.

    That's the outcome of entertaining myself during a bad horror movie (which is my favorite kind of movie!). I think it shows this is one dang cool plate, and also what a difference using Konad polish for stamping makes. I know some chromes work about as well, but the Konad polishes consistently give a really opaque, crisp stamp, which is my preference.

    So that's what I have for you this morning, Dear Reader. Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
