China Glaze Dance Baby and Konad M88

Hi readers! Today I have some stamped zebra print tips! Honestly I usually avoid using tip designs because I always have a difficult time centering the image perfectly. I doubt I'm the only one in that boat, but I did my best! Here I used China Glaze's Dance Baby, painted my tips with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On, and then stamped using Konad M88 in Konad Black. I added some L.A. Colors Art Deco Silver Glitter.

Just like all other Konad plates I have used, the images from Konad M88 came out crisp and picked up easily. The only difficulty I ran into was stamping the images crooked. The image is very curved for a tip design, but I found an easier way to stamp straight. To avoid stamping crooked, I didn't pain the every ends of the image and painted straight across bottom of the U-shape. This way when I picked up the image, it was not so curved and it was easier to center the image on my nails. This image plate is available at Nail Polish Canada along with tons of other Konad stamping products.

  1. I love your zebra tips and they look perfect! It would drive me crazy trying to get it straight! That's why I haven't done any tip stamps yet! :)
