I have a question about the stamps. I bought two plates (is that the name?), I apply a polish and it doesn't copy well on the little pad. Do I have to use a special nail polish?..

Hey Ish K.!

Yes, they're called image plates. :) Hmm...which polish did you use? If you're not using the Konad Special Nail Polishes, you need to use a lacquer that is thick and highly pigmented. Usually the ones that are very pigmented with just a single coat work the best.

I've heard that Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White works well. I've tried China Glaze Millennium (a metallic silver), and it stamps beautifully. (Actually, this is what I used in the above manicure.) A lot of metallic polishes work well.

Hope that helps! :)

Thank you! Yes I've used one from LA Girls (black matte) and didn't paste well, it was incomplete. I used a China Glaze one and it pasted well! Thank you (:

Hey Maria!

Thank you so much! :) The shooting-star Bundle Monster design was a lot of fun to wear. I really liked it over the blue combo (OPI Last Friday Night and China Glaze Frostbite). Reminded me of birthday wrapping paper!

If you check out the link (http://www.swatchandlearn.com/nail-...), I show you the exact polishes and image plate I used. There's also a link to my Konad Tutorial, which shows you step-by-step how to use nail-stamping systems.

Hope this helps! :) Have a wonderful New Year!
