I have been waiting a long time to try out Konad Stamping and finally got to try it out this past weekend for the first time!  I was super excited when the stamping tools I needed arrived in the mail!

I knew there'd be a learning curve involved so I wasn't expecting perfect results for my first try.  All in all I was very happy with how my first attempt worked out!  I am sure I will improve over time though.

Here are the two best pics I was able to get:

It's pretty good but you can see some messed up details if you look closely

The base color used is from Color Club's Wicked Sweet's Yum Gum.   The polish I used or stamping was The One That Got Away from OPI's Katy Perry Collection.  I found it worked very well as a stamping polish.  The plate I used for the image was Konad Plate m64.

Here are some swatches of Yum Gum all on its own.

 It's a really pretty creamy bubble gum pink.  These pictures are 3 coats of Yum Gum.  It really did smell like bubble gum for several hours too!  I really enjoy this color a lot, considering I am not a huge pink wearer!  

Stamping was super fun and I can't wait to try again really soon, with hopefully even better results!  

Do you have any favorite image plates that you use?


  1. I love your mani! this stamping is perfect! I love when stamping is done with a color of the same family as the base polish!!

  2. This is awesome. Your stamping is perfect!

  3. That came out really good!!! Love the colors! I did it for the first time this past weekend too! I'm pretty happy with mine too!

  4. That looks really neat! I want to come see these!

  5. So get healed up from that sickness and come hang out soon! :)
