CND Shellac Nail Art - Blackpool and Konad Stamping
Whoa! Long time no post! Oh dear I have been slacking!
Well you'll be pleased to hear I am currently manicuring as I post and have a small back log of other CND Shellac manicures to show you. But for now, the look that I have literally just soaked off!
CND Shellac in Blackpool with Konad Stamping in gold.
This started as an experiment, to see how well I could mix Shellac and Konad - and as it turns out, very well indeed! I will DEFINITELY be doing more of this in the future.
So what did I do? Well I applied as I would any normal Shellac manicure - P.E.P, Shellac base coat, 2 coats of Shellac Blackpool. Then after curing the second Blackpool coat, I used my Konad polish in Gold to stamp a swirly design from the M64 plate. I was initially worried that my Shellac top coat would smear the stamp once applied, but Konad polishes dry so quickly, that I shouldn't have worried. I managed to apply top coat and do my final cure without any hassle at all!
So a very elegant result don't you think? I LOVE it and will certainly be trying out a few more stamping designs soon...
Have you tried CND Shellac and Konad together?
*** UPDATE: I've entered into my first Nail art competition too! After doing this stamping design, I saw Enamel Girl's Spring Nail Art Stamping Contest so I had to enter - check out the other designs here.
