My First Konadicure!!!

Morning Sweethearts! Today is all about firsts for me! This post showcases my very first Konadicure and I am announcing that I have my own domain name! Sincerely Stephanie is now located at www.sincerelystephanienails.com! If you have the .blogspot address bookmarked or anything don't worry it will still redirect, but I am giddy with excitement over having my own domain. With this domain I also got a fancy new email, stephanie@sincerelystephanienails.com how cool does that look? 


I was really hesitant to start stamping because well I love my freehand nail art and I was nervous about not being able to do it. After many hours admiring stamping queens such as Marta from Chit Chat Nails, Sammy from The Nailasaurus and Carolina from Colores de Carol, I finally decided to reach out to my friend Marta and ask her where I could purchase my first stamper. She led me in the right direction and here I am posting my very first Konadicure!

I started out with 2 coats of NYC Times Square, which is a slightly jelly creme red, tangerine fluorescent polish. It has such a squishy quality to it which I of course adore! I then used Konad Special Polish in White to stamp on that lovely pattern from plate m83. It took me a few tries to get the hang of how to stamp and I was actually surprised at just how squishy the stamper was!

Since you all know how much I love my accent nails I went with accents of 4 clear rhinestones going up from the base of my nail on my ring finger and thumb. I am absolutely loving this look!! It's something I would never have been able to achieve by freehanding and it just looks awesome in my opinion.

I know I need practice and I didn't get the image straight on my pinky nail, but I don't think it's terrible for my first attempt at stamping?


What do you all think of my first konadicure? Any suggestions for me? I'm willing to learn anything! :D I'm also going to need some more plates. I just wish the MASH plates shipped to Canada! lol 


I hope you are all having a marvelous day!

  9. Great job! I love stamping but get so frustrated when it goes wrong. A little time and patience goes a long way. You've inspired me to take out my Kinad plates again.
