Konad plate m84

This is an updated repost from my original blog on Tumblr

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.

Check out the composite below, with each design stamped on my nails (using China Glaze First Mate as base and Orly Dazzle for stamping.)

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.

My right (and slightly less successful) hand
m84, along with m85, are among the newest Konad image plates. You can find them at Nail Polish Canada for $8.75 and free shipping within Canada. They also carry a number of nail polish brands and their most recent collections, as well as (Canadian girls take note!) brands that I’ve heard are tricky to find in Canada, such as Zoya.

If you would like to see more posts describing image plates in detail, let me know!
