Christmas Nails - Konad Nail Art

Tuesday, 9 December 2014

At Christmas time I get very into Christmas Nails!

Why would you have normal nails when you can have these??:



I bought a Konad Nail Art Kit in Florida in 2011. I'm not sure how much I paid, but you can get them on ebay for about £4 and then buy the patterns separately for about £3 per disc...you will see what I mean below.

Really cheap and a very good present for girls I think (young or old!)

This is what my kit looks like

Mine came with one "disc" which has leopard print, zebra print, a crisscross pattern, two borders and some flowers.


Obviously I had to buy a Christmas disc too! So a couple of years ago I bought one on ebay.

(I always lean on an old magazine to do this on my nails!)

In case you were wondering the leopard and pattern one is number m57 and the Christmas one is m12.

Lets get started!

If you've read my blog on Express Nails you will have seen my heart press on nails:

By this point I only had one left on...which I was not loving (although I think it looks quite cool with just one)

I managed - with difficulty - to pull the final nail off, cleaned my nail off and painted that nail white.
I then did another coat of red on my first three nails too to make them a bit fresher!

I started with my thumb and picked the candy cane design.

Basically (it is pretty simple) you paint any nail varnish onto the disc over the top of the design.
You then scrape off the excess with the pink scraper and the nail varnish will just stay in the outline of the design.
You then press the pink stamp on to the design, which picks up the paint.
And you press it onto your nails.


It is really quick and easy I did all my nails in about 15 minutes

In between each design you just clean the disc with nail varnish remover on a cotton pad.



To do the kind of "Christmas Jumper" style pattern I used the border pattern from my m57 disc and repeated it a couple of times.

This one is actually my fave! 


Here are the finished designs.

So easy to do and these kits are a really cool gift.

My only warning is to leave the nails quite a while before doing a top coat or you can smudge the designs.




A week later... I repeated the process but with different designs...

I did a couple of coats of white:

 Then added on various designs.


Including my new polish from Essie polish "Peak of Chic" which came in my You Beauty Advent Calendar



LOVE THEM!

  1. These look good; I like the Christmas tree stamp!
    I like that you used pink rather than red, something a bit different at this time of year

    I have my own manicure Monday each week and up until Christmas each Monday I'm having a Christmas edition - have a look if you get a chance!
