This nail post is a little different from usual. Recently I was sent a Konad plate, courtesy of Nail Polish Canada, to try. Since m84 is one of the newest plates from Konad, I thought I should give the full lowdown on this uber-girly stamp plate.
m84 is a pretty versatile plate of 8 designs: 1 full-nail stars design, 4 florals (roses, lilies, and lotuses), 1 bow with hearts, and 1 lip print.
China Glaze First Mate is such a lovely navy polish; can you believe I’m only wearing one coat in these pictures? (Sorry the images aren't the best, I took them with my phone when I lost my camera charger ≧Д≦)
You can see that some of the designs stamped more successfully than others. The hearts in the bow design (bottom right) didn’t really show up. I was looking forward to the lotuses but as with any delicate design, you need a lot of patience as it’s difficult to get the polish into all the fine lines and stamp it on without any little bits missing. I fudged my right middle and ring fingers (pictured below), but I lucked out and stamped my left thumb (top left) almost perfectly. Designs like the lilies, roses, and lip print stamp easily and beautifully because it’s easier to scrape the polish into the larger engraved spaces.
