Konad - yet again

All Konaders and Konad-addicts, I have great news for you.

Konad special polish? Not so special any more. Once you have figured out how to work the scraper, you can achieve good results with regular aka reasonably priced polishes!

So far, I've had excellent results with Easel Come, Easel Go and Gift Of Gold (both by Finger paints).

One picture is better than thousand words, so here we go:
Easel Come, Easel Go over RBL Au Chocolate. I know, it seems like a blasphemy to konadize this polish, but what can a poor Konad-adict do?

Gift Of Gold:

Please excuse the sloppiest swatches ever, I was really excited to stamp this gold right away over anything.

To be honest, these pictures just do not do the justice - gold is so much richer in real life!

I have also tried a couple of OPI - old formula red and a new blue - to recreate Sara's wonderful 4th of July mani. Guess what? Both worked just great!

The only problem I've had so far was with Essie Marshmallow. I want to use it for Konad french tips, and polish is too thin. I left it opened for to make it thiker and cannot wait to report you the results of this experiment.

I will get Misa's white and black and try them as well.

I really hope this post would save some of you a couple of bucks!

/Konad 10 ml special polish - about $10; Finger Paints 15 ml - about $4. Goft of Gold is discontinied, but Fool's Gold from a current collection seems like a good replacement/
