Konad Christmas Kit

Hey peeps, some more nail art to share with you all today... and I am in HEAVEN!!

I cut my nails fairly short yesterday as they haven't been loving all the spring cleaning I've been doing, and despite my love of polish and patterns (ooh, that would be a good blog name!!) I actually prefer my nails trimmed.

After buying the cheap Konad-ripoff 'Salon Express' Nail Stamping kit, I really wanted to try some Konad "special" polishes, and I also really wanted to get a Christmas plate! I also wanted an Australian distributor so that I wouldn't be waiting weeks for them to arrive! {didn't want much did I? :P }

 Again I searched eBay and found this set HERE... From eBay store. I think they may be Australia's only/main supplier of Konad - so I know they're going to know my postal details from memory :)
This is the kit....

It comes with the 3 different 5ml Special polishes, (red, white, blue) 2 image plates - M12 (Christmas) & M57, the stamper and metal scraper.
And I am so happy to report that the KONAD branded stamper is way better than my other *cheaper* branded one! It's so soft, you can press your entire nail into it and the image just coats over so nicely!

This is the four fingers - I'm yet to master clean-up (even using a brush like I've been told!) and you'll need to excuse the awkward pose of my hand :) My little finger naturally curls in behind the ring finger so taking photos of the nail isn't the easiest!!
How stinkin' cute is that funky little reindeer pirate!! I just love him :)
I still haven't mastered the art of clean-up, even using a small paintbrush, it would be really nice to be ambidextrous when doing your nails lol
I stamped the text on the thumb only... (Konad Christmas Plate M12)

The mesh and lace are on the other plate in the kit (M57) and the mesh full-nail image just coated over my entire nail so nicely. The full images (Konad) are no bigger than the cheaper Salon Express images - so I'm really crossing the days off the calendar until my other (supposedly) larger image plates arrive :)

I also received an extra bonus with my order...

Mango Moisturising Hand Cream and a Koand 'Nail-Art Pen'. The cream is lovely and the 'pen' is a clear with silver glitter polish with a tiny brush, the box says "Used for striping and dotting". I look forward to road testing it.
Overall a VERY pleasant Konad experience :)

EDIT: I have decided not to put my nail art here on this blog anymore and have started a second blog called Polish & Patterns...
If you would like to continue seeing my nail art (and I hope you will) - I would love for you to hop accross and become a follower :)

For now I will leave these posts and the links in my sidebar - they will be removed in the newyear and this blog will only be for my crafting.

Well aren't you a happy little Vegemite Loz, I'm trying to get excited for you but failing miserably - sorry lol. Just when my nails reach a 'decent' length the wretched? things break so this fabby stuff would be pointless for me. Anyways you got a bonus with the hand cream, might be nice to eat too?
Keep crafting.
