Sometimes the image would not stick to the stamp or to my nail or the polish would dry out! After all this hard work, I finally realized my mistakes and now it works perfectly fine!
1.Switch off your fan: Yes, that was my biggest mistake. My nail paint would dry out very quickly and the entire image from the plate did not stick to the stamp.
2.Somebody said, “Rub your stamp on a buffer and it will work!” DO NOT DO THAT! You will just spoil your stamp. Just clean your stamp with a cotton ball soaked in nail polishremover. (Make sure you do not leave behind nail polish remover on your stamp.)
3.Be quick!Especially after you scrape the excess nail polish,quickly press the stamp on the plate in a rolling motion. Once the image is on the stamp you can slow down a bit.
4.Don’t press the stamp too hard: Just a GENTLE rolling motion is enough.
5.Do not use a bad quality top coat: Look what happened when I did..The nail paint got smudged 😛 (unfortunately I had to start again).The Konad top coat is best for this purpose.–>
6.Hold the scraper at a 45 degree and scrape.
7.The Konad special nail polish is best for these nail arts. You can use other nail polishes but they should be opaque.
8.Don’t give up!Its difficult when you start, but once you get it right, you can finish your nail art in a matter of seconds!
How did I find the Konad nail art kit in Mumbai?
I searched for the kit at many local markets in Mumbai but nobody had it..Even the lady at a Beauty shop had no idea what I was talking about..So finally I purchased one from Jabong.com
