Fun Nail Art with Hello Kitty & Floral Stamping Nail Art Kit

HELLO!  Today I was in the mood for creating some fun nail art on my nails and so I took up my new nail konads by Born Pretty!
I'd never tried nail konads before so when I was asked to try out the Hello Kitty & Floral Stamping Nail Art Kit by the PR of Born Pretty, I went ahead with the offer as I love nail art and here is what I created using the konad for the first time! I know it has come out a bit messy but this is just the beginning and I am going to play more with this and will try to work towards refining my techinques as I go along further.

I applied a regular light blue polish as my base and and also used a regular (with a more viscous texture) dark blue nail polish for stamping on the designs.

Nail konad is the "it" beauty product for getting really cool looking nails these days! The nail konad kit (priced at US $8.77) that I received came with a scraper, a stamp, 3 Konad Special Nail Polishes in Black, Red and White and two image plates. The plates contain a few predesigned images which allow you to experiment with different designs and create fun nail arts. You can even use multiple plates and colors to achieve a truly customized look.

However, I would point out one thing, the konad special nail polish that I received was a dissapointment...as I could not make it work for me at all.... here at this point, I would give it a benefit of doubt as it was my first ever experiment with this kit and as I am not a professional nail art technician,  it could  possibly be due to this reason that I was not able to get a proper stamping with the konad nail polishes! Finally, after a few trials and disapointments I somehow came up with an idea of using a regular polish instead and to my sheer surprise the stamping came out quite well in the first shot! Anyways, I will be keep experimenting with the konad polishes and try to get it work for me.
Coming onto another thing, the konad nail plates in my Hello Kitty & Floral Stamping Nail Art Kit didn't have any design related to Hello Kitty so I don't know if they have sent me the wrong sample or it's the fault in the naming of this kit..

All in all I have a mixed feeling about this stamping kit from Borne Pretty. It does the job of stamping but I would have preferred the nail konads to have something related to Hello Kitty which I adore.

  5. The word that comes to mind is 'marine' looks gorgeous. Totally agree with you. What's the point of calling it hello kitty when nothing is related to it.

  10. It's interesting to me, from far away the designs actually look quite neat! As if it was mechanically done.
