I was craving a funky manicure, but I didn’t have time to spend on freehand nail art. For times like these, nail stamping comes to the rescue like a caped, lacquered crusader. 😉
To create this Black & Blue Konadicure, I used Essie Lapis of Luxury, which I’ve been dying to try and the trippy full-nail pattern on Konad Image Plate m78.
As you can see, I was in quite a hurry, so the stamping is a bit fuzzy, but in real life (when your nails aren’t blown up to such a large size), the imperfections didn’t show as much.
There are tons of people who are so much better at nail stamping than I am, but the finished look was exactly what I was going for, flaws and all. 🙂

Konad Image Plate m78 Review (Trippy Pattern)
You may remember that I used this “trippy pattern” in a green and yellow manicure I did a long time ago. (In case you missed it, you can view it here.)
This pattern is very easy to pick up on your stamper, and I like how it’s a full-nail design. These kind of full-nail designs are very easy to work with, and I love how it adds a funky touch to your base colour.
