I’m working through my requests and emails and I really want to thank everyone for your patience! I’ve gotten some emails about Konad metallic stamping polishes in silver and gold. They are problematic for a lot of people, it seems. They’re too darn sheer and they don’t show up well. I got silver and gold bottles on seperate occassions and found them both to be rather useless.
But, if you have a bottle of metallic Konad Special Polishes that you’ve given up on, don’t despair! I added some super-metallic silver pigment to mine, and lookee what I got!
I used a Body Shop Shimmer Cube in silver and added it directly to the bottle of Konad. I recommend the finest pigment you can get, because chunky ones will just fall to the bottom of the bottle as the polish is so thick. A bum note about the Body Shop- they were bought by L’Oreal, who engage in animal testing, and so I’m not buying anything from them again. I know they have an earth-friendly image, but that’s just the marketing. But I swear I bought the eyeshadow while they were still an independent company!
The base color is OPI Ink with a coat of Hot Topic Purple (sorry, no names!) added on top. I wanted a dark base to show you how the silver really pops. OPI Ink is a nice color, but it’s a little too blackish on. I wish it looked more like it did in the bottle, but a thin coat of that Hot Topic gives it a nice depth.
If adding pigment to your Konad polishes is too much trouble, the China Glaze Romantiques and new Khromes work well with Konad for metallic stamping.
