I placed an order for a Konad stamper and some individual plates. \o/ From the voluminous reading I've been doing on various nail blogs, it appears it takes some practice, but the results are just so charming.
And it sort of makes me finally realize that nails are little...blank canvases, and all of this is a distinct and delightful flavor of art. Nail art!
I admit, though, that I'm considering buying small brushes and trying my hand at some freehand stuff. The only drawback there is that I'm strongly right-handed, so my left-handed efforts may be decidedly lacking.
But what fun, all told!
