OPI – Thanks a WindMillion with Konad m57

Yesterday I’ve received my first Konad plates (m50 and m57) which I’ve tried for the first time on the mani that I was wearing, which happened to be OPI Thanks a WindMillion. I was pretty surprised how much fun stamping really was and I can hardly wait for the next pattern to try. The hard thing to do is to get the pattern straight on the nails but as they say, practice makes perfect.

The pattern used for the mani below is coming from the m57 plate and I’m using LA Colors Art Deco White for stamping. I’ll have to experiment with different colors and polish finishes to find out which polish is good for stamping and in what combination. I thought the white I was using should have been more accentuated than it was, but the effect is very discrete and nice.

What do you think of stamping? Have you tried it yet?

    Men vilken bra idé! Har bara försökt stämpla på tippen som en fransk manikyr, men jag ska helt klart prova detta!

    Supersnyggt att sätta mönstret nere på nageln. Den där brickan har ju jag. Måste nog testas :)

    This is one of the 2 or 3 polishes from the Holland Collection that I didn’t get and now I want it! It looks so good and I love that stamp.

      Thank you :) It was a little bit tricky! I had to redo some of the nails!
