As I mentioned earlier, I finally got a couple Konad plates. I'm not very good at doing it, and it helps that I don't have the "special" polish. I'm thinking I'm going to get some in black, white, and red. Those are probably the colors I'd use the most. Anyway, I did this using the m56 (I think) plate. If you zoom in, you can see where I went in and dotted some more white over the design to make it show up more. Regular polish just doesn't do the trick in one stamp (not plain white or black, anyway).
(Do my nails look stained to you? Uh, "Midnight Kiss" did that. Bad. Definitely recommend using a base coat with that one.)
I LOVE Orly's "Liquid Vinyl." I've been using a crappy .99 cent black polish and finally got fed up with it and got that one. It's really dark black, but still not black enough for the stamping. I actually painted my tips black and used the white as the stamp. It's not perfect (at all) but I like it. I added a little silver stripe to give it a little something extra, and I think that's what makes it.
I'm definitely going to get some more plates when I get the polish. Which ones should I get? I have this one (m56) and m60.
Have a lovely evening! :)
