Konadicure How-To (7.21.10)

I saw these Revlon Runway nails at the drug store the other day and I got inspired to do a Konadicure! Check out the 3rd nail set from the left:

Finished:

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Seche Vite Topcoat
  • Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Whirlwind White
  • CND Sticky Basecoat
  • Rimmel Black Satin
  • Konad plates m57 and m19
  • Q-tips and nailpolish remover (not shown)

First apply basecoat:

Then use m19 and Whirlwind White to stamp on white french tips: (getting it straight takes practice!)

Stamp the fishnet print from the Konad m57 plate to cover the white tips. I find you can have enough room to stamp 2 nail tips with one fishnet print:

Then using a nailpolish remover-soaked q-tip, remove the extra fishnet hanging off of the white tips. Then apply topcoat very carefully. As you can see I wasn’t quick enough with my topcoat application on my ring finger and the fishnet print smudged:

Done!  You can apply this technique to any “full” konad print to create different french tip designs …without having to buy special french tip plates! :)
