NOTD:Gradient Pink-Orange Floral with Konad M66

by xin on November 25, 2010

God bless every body! It’s Thursday already πŸ˜€

Today, I am going to show a combination of gradient and Konad stamping. To see how to stamp from the first step, click here!

nail art design and tools

Tools I used:
– Pink and orange nail polish from Elianto, top and base coat, Konad stamping tools, and special Konad top coat.

Firstly, apply top coat, let dry. Then start from bottom part of nail and paint a coat of pink.


Before it is dry, paint a layer of orange polish on the first half on the nail.


If you see an obvious line, use the pink polish again to blend the colors. It is like blending your eyeshadow!

Another easier technique for blending is using Sponge technique.

Ok, now here I am using Konad M66.

Wait till your polish to DRY thoroughly before you attempt to stamp.

When you are done stamping, put on the konad top coat.

Unfortunately, the white polish sunk in! And it became barely visible.


Repeat for 10 nails, let dry and you are done!

It’s not visible….but people did notice πŸ˜€

Tip for doing gradient: Try to apply the polish thinly, so the colors can dry faster before you can destroy the design.
