Full Nail Design, M71

This full nail design is super fast and super easy! Because this image is quite detailed, even though you are using only one stamp, it looks more complicated. If your going to polish your nails, why not Konad them if it takes LITERALLY 3 minutes longer?! this image looks great even on short stubbies like mine.

You only need a base coat, a color, and a stamp in Konad SP.
here I used Sally Hansen Grape Idea, image plate m71, and a black SP for design.
Here's how you do it:
1. Base coat & polish entire nail with your fave color ( visit my links for blogs that have excellent color reviews!)
2. Stamp entire nail using m71. On your thumb you'll need to stamp 2X.
Because this image has such FINE LINED detail...you need to work FAST FAST FAST, otherwise your image might not pick up all the way. The step you need to do fast is the image pick up after scraping. If you don't pick up your image RIGHT after scraping, it will dry on the plate. Then, when you pick it up, you'll notice that not all of the image is there. I always give a quick peek @ the stamper to make sure all the image IS there..if not, I wipe it off & try again.

That is a gorgeous Konadicure. Love it! I can't wait to see what you'll come up with next.

Well thank you ladies...so happy you like the blog format. I do it that way because I think a lot of people underestimate their konad skills. I think if I deconstruct the design, step by step- you can then understand how to build your own.
I recommend people start out with a clear coated nail. get some white SP polish, and practice away. The more you play, the faster you will develop your hand at it. And really if some one gets down the technique for stamping...they CAN do layering.
But if you don't already have a double sided stamper-GET ONE. It is so much easier to line/center images off the small green side. I also just like handle. Visit ocnailart.com to check out the double sided stamper. (hello :) you get a 20% discount...booya!) Use my discount code.

Happy stamping!
