Review and NOTD new konad plate m85

I haven't had time to play with my konad stamps for a long time, but recently I got the chance to try this brand new design and had some fun with this plate.

m85 includes 5 images for stamping with. There is a cute star design, flower/swirl pattern, interlocking rings/hoops pattern, abstract flower pattern and my favorite, sort of a tribal abstract design.

To test out some of the patterns I started with two coats of OPI la positively hot matte. This color has sat untried on my shelf for months, but whoa it is really sexy!

First, I tried the tribal abstract design. I love this one! It's awesome.

Please forgive the messiness, it's been a good 6 months since I have done any konading!
On my other hand I tried out the interlocking hoops/rings design. I didn't like this one as much as the tribal.

I found the design a little boring so I added another stamp of the hoops using white konad polish overtop. This looked pretty cool, even though I didn't do the best job I liked the result.

I can tell you I think this plate is really unique and fun to play with. I tried the star design as well, sorry no pic but it turned out great.

The one thing I didn't like was that the hoop design was hard to pick up on the konad stamper. This is very common with very thin designs. It just takes practice and patience to get it right.
The other thicker designs are easy to work with and come out looking great.

rating: 4.5/5

price: $8.75 CAD

Sweet! Nice to see a link to a Canadian website! I think the double-layered interlocking hoops mani looks pretty cool.
