It's finally here! If you follow me on Twitter you will know due to the snow (which is not budging!) I was not able to get any birthday cards or a massive delivery I'd been waiting since New Years Eve for. Well it all finally got here today! I'm waiting for a couple extra bits that got dispatched separately, once I have everything I will haul it.

The main reason for my order was that I really wanted a Konad set. I've been admiring them for ages but have been terrible at nail art in the past due to the fact I'm useless with my left hand for intricate things like that.

Like I said, I will blog more on the set I got at a later date. For now, onto the good stuff!

2 coats of China Glaze IDK, Konad Black Pearl Special Polish with M57 plate and Seche Vite top coat.







I did my left hand first, so I think my right hand looks that little bit neater. Now although this is my first attempt it was still a quick process. I expect once I get used to it I'll be even quicker at it but I kept having this weird dreams that I was doing it too slow and that the polish had dried out before I got the design onto my nail. I still need to work on my thumbs. The image designs are the exact width of my thumb nail so they have to be placed in exactly the right place to cover the whole nail. I'm sure that will come naturally!

What also helped was Leanne's gigantic Konad Q&A. If you haven't checked it out you should do! It was really helpful.

And just for reference I cleaned the image plate and stamper after every use by wiping it over a cotton pad with nail varnish remover on it. The scraper was cleaned when it needed it.

What do we think of this? I'm really pleased with this! :D I urge anyone to try it. If anyone has any plate recommendations please let me know!

Also a quick thank you to all my new followers and if you haven't already don't forget to enter my giveaway.
