Konad Starter Kit Review!

Today I have an kit for review from, it's from Konad so you know it's gonna be good ;)

They provided me with a Konad starter kit which is great for beginners because it includes all the essentials, stamper, scraper, special polish plus plate M-36. I was lucky enough to start out using Konad branded plates when I first started stamping, maybe because at the time there were no other substitutions! However, if you are new to stamping I would highly recommend starting with Konad as well, you cannot beat the quality.

I decided to try each design over an orange card with the white stamping polish that came with the kit. The scraper you receive in this kit is metal, which is personally not my first choice, my go to stamper is fully plastic.

My experience with metal scraper was alright, compared to my regular plastic scraper I felt like I had to apply more pressure to remove re excess polish from the design. It also left very fine scratch marks on the plate, fortunately this does not effect the designs at all.

The mini special polish applied quite well to the image plates and the brush was the perfect size, so no issues there. I did feel like it was the tiniest bit thinner than the special white polish I already own but that may be because I have had it for years!

The only issue I had was with the intricacy of some of the designs on the plate. I could just not get them to stamp fully! I applied less polish, more polish, less pressure and more pressure to the scraper and stamper. Below was my best run at stamping all of the designs with the products included in the kit.

I also wanted to refresh my mani so I applied my favorite design over Nfu Oh 65.

Overall I would recommend this kit is you are looking to start Konad stamping, it would be nice if you were able to pick your own plate to go with the kits. I did have some issues with Plate M-36 particularly but I have never had these issues with the other Konad plates in my collection.
